Technical Details


Product Description

The Universal Tube Adapter (UTA) from Source Tactical enables you to refill your hydration system without opening your backpack or even taking it off your back. It comes on its own or with a custom pouch for UTA that's equipped with MOLLE attachment system, which enables you to easily mount it to a vest or ruck sack. The pouch keeps the UTA clean and accessible, as well as prevents it from getting lost. You can connect the UTA water tap and fill your reservoir directly from the faucet. You can also plug a water bottle's threaded nozzle into the UTA and let the water flow from the bottle to the reservoir. The UTA expands when a reservoir is full and automatically disconnects if the reservoir is accidentally overfilled. Source has been a groundbreaker in hydration system technology and is also well known for its tactical gear and hiking sandals. Tested in the most extreme conditions, hundreds of thousands of Source hydration systems are in use in the field.

Great way to refill your Source Hydration Bladder. Make sure you have a QD fitting on the bite valve end or it will not work. You can get a QD hose from Source. This device is weak and rips easy. Treat with care when filling from metal faucet, don't force bottles into the adapter or it can rip.

This saves a lot of effort of having to remove the water bladder form a loaded backpack. It filled much quicker than I had thought it would. I'm normally NOT a "get every gadget" person. But, this one is worthy of consideration.

At first, it looked like a very nifty device to refill your SO hydration pack without ever pulling it out of the backpack. In reality, its usefulness is very limited. It's very hard to fill it in using a faucet without taking off your back due to limited hose length. Flow of some faucets is very hard to control and this device pops off spraying water all around. Also, pressure on the bladder by other contents in the backpack make refilling very slow. I gave up on it half way through my hike because you cannot reliably tell how much of the water actually went through when using a faucet. I did not try to use a bottle to fill it in because my nalgenes had a wide mouth.
I can imagine that the experience would be much better when used to refill a hydration pack that is not part of an expedition backpack.

If you're running a Source bladder at a GORUCK event, this piece is essential for refills in the fly. Ideally they should devise a waterproof pouch so it can be easily accessible yet avoid contamination in water evolutions

Makes camelbak look like junk, and i don't dislike camelbak this is just much better. Got a source bladder when some rough use made a camelbak bladder start leaking and never looked back. the quick connects, the hoses, this for filling up the bladder with bottled water, water hose, faucet etc all work great.

Whoever came up with this is a genius. You can swap out the bite valve on the tube and snap this on to refill your water bladder from a faucet or disposable water bottle without even taking the pack off your back.
It does require a decently long faucet but it still works with even one of those sprayer faucets if you hold it on tight enough.
It's a bit bulky, but it still fits in the pockets on the hydration pack with some finagling.

Like most Burning Man participants, I wear a hydration pack most of the time I'm at the event. Last year I found I was running out of water far from my trailer because I didn't take the time to disassemble and refill my pack every time I was in camp.

This year I bought a Source reservoir and this fill adapter and was very pleased with the results. I kept the adapter on the faucet and every time I came back to camp even for a minute I could top off my water supply without even having to take off my pack. Also, the fill adapter served double duty as a directional sprayer for the faucet, making it easy to rinse out the sink.

SOURCE Hydration is probably one of the best, if not the best, hydration pack making companies in the world. Excellent products and extremely attentive staff. Product was what was advertise, and was well worth the money.
