Adding A Bladder to Salomon Hydration Packs

Salomon Adv Skin 5 and 12 packs were updated a few years ago and they changed how you feed a hydration hose through the pack. Unfortunately, they didn't publish an instruction manual on the changes! We've created a video below on how to get either the 1.5L or 2.0L bladder into the pack.

This will work for the:

  • Adv Skin 5 / Women's Adv Skin 8 / Adv Skin 12
  • Active Skin 4 / Active Skin 8

If you have a bladder made by another company other than Salomon, it might work (and it's worth a shot!). Salomon bladders are made by HydraPak and they make most hydration pack bladders for other brands as well.
