  • Never put your pack into a washing machine or dryer, this damages the PU coating.
  • The pack fabrics can’t be ironed.
  • Zippers must be kept clean.

  • We recommend you follow the instructions on the care label for each product. Care labels are typically found inside of the product.

Bladders

The best way to keep your USWE® bladder in top-notch shape is to clean it with soap and water and let it dry completely after every use.

The Shape-Shift and Elite bladders are especially easy to clean because they’re reversible! They are also dishwasher (top-shelf recommended) friendly. Follow these steps for a carefree reservoir: *Not for our Disposable bladders.

Shape-Shift & Elite Bladders Cleaning

  • Drain all liquids remaining in the bladder and remove the tube
  • Place your hand in the bladder, grab the bottom, and pull it back through the top opening (just like turning a sock inside-out). The moulded opening can also be flipped after the bladder body has been reversed
  • Clean the reservoir with mild soap and water or place in the top rack of the dishwasher
  • Let the bladder dry out completely while reversed
  • Reverse right side out for storage

Disposable Bladder Cleaning

  • Bladders used only with water can be reused a number of times, just drain all remaining water and clean the bladder with mild soap and water
  • Let the bladder dry out completely while hanging/standing with the cap at the bottom
  • Bladders that have been filled with liquids other than water should be replaced after each use due to the risk of bacterial growth inside the bladder
  • Bladders that’s worn out should be replaced with a new fresh refill bladder

Our disposable bladders are manufactured in a strong plastic-foil which are recyclable and BPA-free and approved for food-stuffs.

  • BPA free
  • Recyclable
  • Freezable
  • Food and Beverage approved

Tube & Bite Valve Cleaning

  • Disconnect the drink tube from the reservoir
  • Grasp the bite valve in one hand and tube in the other. Pull the valve firmly to remove the bite valve from the tube
  • Gently remove the silicone sheath from the valve and clean with mild soap and water. Rinse thoroughly
  • Clean the inside of the tube with mild soap and water. Insert the USWE Tube Brush in the open end of the tube and scrub. Rinse thoroughly
  • After drying the components, carefully reattach sheath to the valve and re-install bite valve to tube

What If My Bladder Got Stained?

The material used in most of our bladders, Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU), is chosen for superior durability and flexibility. It is porous and can be stained like fabric. Staining is generally caused by food colouring used in gel or liquids and does not affect the functionality of the product; yet can be difficult to remove. A company called Clean Ethics has engineered a chlorine free, non-toxic, and biodegradable tablet that is safe for virtually any surface, called Bottle Bright. We recommend using this product to combat stains and odours in your USWE® bladder.

What If My Bladder Catches Taste?

Some users may initially notice a plastic-like taste when using any of our products made with TPU. This taste typically subsides over time and can be eliminated by simply squeezing juice from a lemon into the product, filling it with water, and then freezing it. After frozen, remove, thaw, and rinse.

Hydration Packs Guide

Do I need a hydration backpack?

If you ride your mountain bike on off-road trails, then you will want to take some fluid with you. While many MTBs have bottle cages if you want more than 750ml of then you will need a hydration backpack. They are also useful for carrying extra clothing, tools and food.

How much fluid can I carry?

Hydration backpacks are supplied with a 1.5, 2 or 3 litre bladder to carry fluid. A larger bladder will enable you to choose how much you carry with you on specific rides as you don’t need to use the whole capacity. A hose with a mouthpiece and tap allows you to drink while you ride.

How much kit can I carry in a hydration backpack?

This very much depends on the model - a classic CamelBak will only have room for a trail tool and thin layer while an alpine style pack will have room for tools, spares, food waterproofs and post ride clothing. In addition to this some hydration packs have compression straps that allow you to vary the capacity and carry straps for carrying extra kit, like body armour.

What size hydration pack do I need?

This will depend on the type and length of ride.

  • Up to 5 litres – short rides with minimal kit
  • 6–12 litres – all day rides carrying extra layers, food and trail tools
  • 13-25 litres – all day and multi-day rides carrying extra layers, food, tools, spares and post ride clothing

Can I ride technical terrain with a hydration pack?

While all our hydration packs are designed for serious off-roading some are more suited to riding steep technical terrain. Look for a pack with a horizontal or lumbar bladder and a substantial waist strap for riding more challenging, enduro style trails. as these offer a lower centre of gravity for increased stability.

Can I use a hydration pack for commuting?

Many hydration packs feature reflective strips and a tab for a rear light so make a great commuting packs too.

Are the hydration bladders easy to clean?

Yes, hydration pack bladders tend to have a wide opening so you can easily get your hand inside to give them a good clean.
