Hydration tube and easy to use bite valve for simple hydration on the go, whether you're backpacking or day hiking.

While the Vecto isn't designed as a hydration bladder, this set up will work well for folks that would prefer not to carry both a Vecto and a hydration bladder, or for folks that would like their hydration bladder to also be able to collect water and connect to a filter in a pinch.

Not bad

Comparing it to other systems I use it seems to need a bit more suction to draw water in even though the vessica would collapse while drinking. ( I tried this upside down and right side up).
I tried it with other bottles and it seemed to react the same which I expected.
Comparing it to my other hydrations systems there is small difference. In the cap there is a very tiny (non leaking) valve that permits the displacement of air which eases the suction thru the tube. I believe this would help the draw of the liquid.

The Old Guy
Better than anticipated

In replacing an old water bladder system I purchased a Quick Connect Cap and a 3-liter VectoX bladder (for durability) from CNOC in November 2023 to replace the system. What I came up with was not optimal but worked.

In February 2024 CNOC/Minimal Gear contacted me and asked if I would review the QuickHose. The QuickHose kit was provided at no charge to me in exchange for an honest option of the product. I am posting. I am not affiliated with CNOC or Minimal Gear in any manner.

My first impression of the QuickHose was in the packaging, well done and recyclable, that the 40-inch-long hose is a bit stiff but that it will help avoid kinking, the shut-off valve is stiff but I am sure it will become easier to use over time and the bite valve is a bit different than what I am used to.

Installation was very simple and the water connections are very secure and my work around has been removed.

The 90-degree fitting immediately resolved the tube kinking which had been an issue and the stiffer hose feed easily through my pack and the bite valve is very easy to use.

I do not see anything that might need improvement and plan to replicate this hydration set-up in my back-up old school external frame pack as well. My son is planning to utilize this same hydration system in his pack this summer during our planned long-distance hike. His trail name is 9 Liters and he carries two of the 3-liter bags in his pack.
