Maximum utilization of our low profile technology greatly reduces the depth of the carrier making it a true low profile system. Rider is SOURCE's premier low profile hydration system, designed specifically for ballistic vest integration yet quickly converts for back carriage or ruck insertion.
The Rider is a component of Project Virtus as selected by the UK MOD in 2015 for the British Armed Forces.
