VPO-1X Vinyl Backpack with Brass Hand Pump

The new VPO-1X is the latest backpack hand pump to join the WATERAX BACKPAX series.

Its collapsible 5 US Gal (19 L) bag is constructed of heavy duty yet lightweight polyester fabric which is encased in vinyl for superior puncture and abrasion protection. Its seams are reinforced in all the right places to eliminate any possibility of leaks.

The VPO-1X includes the WATERAX HPC-X brass hand pump which features a sturdy nylon rear pistol grip and forward rubber grip, a combination nozzle tip allowing for quick switch from stream to spray without tools, and a positive shutoff and locking feature which prevents leaking at any angle.

The VPO-1X also features the all-new WATERAX shoulder straps designed to provide users with enhanced comfort and safety. The cushy padded straps provide superior load support and are made with breathable materials for cool and dry operations. They include multiple adjustment straps for a custom fit, a chest strap to distribute pressure, heavy-duty fastening clips, and Scotchlite® reflective strips for increased visibility.
