The carrier also has a rear zip pocket designed to fit a 200 round drum or M18A1. You could also opt to pack in spare ammunition, field rations, or other slag to stow away. A square of velcro loop is situated on the rear of the secondary pouch for any patches and identification.
At the top of the hydration carrier you have two ports for routing hydration tubes or comm equipment as you could fit a small radio in the main compartment with the smaller hydration bladder. For some perspective on the size of the hydration carrier, the instructor in the photo above is 6'7". He is also wearing the SORD USA Field Uniform along a new product that we will be announcing soon.

The hydration carrier is shown attached to the Advanced Releasable Armor carrier and is compatible for any MOLLE. Once packed, you can cinch it down with the built in compression straps for a tight fit and lower profile that is relatively snag free.
