Helix - Valve Kit


The Helix Bite Valve, yet another one of Source's great creations, has used a fancy 360 cylindrical silicone valve situation, which means you don't have to swivel that hydration tube (or your body!) to a specific orientation to use it. "Omni directional operation" they call that. Might not seem like a big deal to some... but if you're in the middle of adventuring, tired as all hell, just sat done on the comfiest looking rock you could find with your pack still on, and have now slid done said rock at a funky angle right down to the dusty floor, with your pack precariously balancing between still being on the rock and totally engulfing you... well, the last thing you want to have to deal with is orientating your entire body to accommodate a tiny bit of silicone that's been strapped down to high heaven to your pack. "Omni directional" would seriously be the only thing that'd save you from having a reassessing-my-life-choices moment.

The Helix Valve Kit also comes with Source's Dirt Shield valve cover. Because seriously, don't fool yourself, dirt all up in that valve would be the last straw. The. Last. Straw,

"I spent close to 3 hours in this store today, being fitted for and choosing a pack, and the staff are fantastic. Helpful, knowledgeable, patient and friendly - and I think I'm probably a fussy customer and I have difficulty finding packs that fit comfortably. Has to be my best experience in this kind of store to date."

"My favourite outdoor shop in Sydney. This is where you go if you want to see gear stocked because of it's quality, not just because it's corporate overload has pumped out another 10,000 puffer jackets that need to be moved before next season. Knowledgeable staff that actually partake in trekking and travelling themselves. Definitely worth dropping in!"

"Always friendly, helpful staff with great knowledge. Great range of good quality products (nothing really low end) including Australian/NZ brands e.g. Wilderness Equipment, One Planet and Aarn. Never had a fuss with exchanging unused gear within the 2 week period."
