Step 2: Time to cover up!

Picture of Time to cover up!
First, to properly cover the bladder with Duct Tape you must inflate the bladder for a sort of "template".  If you dont inflate it and cover it while its empty, it wont expand when you fill it!  So, inflate the bladder, and block the air flow.  Cover the bladder throughly  with Duct Tape, leaving holes for the filling hole and hose hole.  I added a handle for hand carrying.

Step 3: Backpack Straps!

Now, add backpack straps.  Take a piece of duct tape that is long enough and fold it in half to make it not sticky.  Adjust, add, or snip off some tape to make it fit you well. then attach using a strip of duct tape.  Also, i added a little holder for the strap so it doest fall when you let go of the nozzle.

This is pretty cool, but the problem is that this will cost around $40 in materials, when the other day I saw a camelback knockoff for $25 at a sporting goods store.

True. I only made this one because i had an old one that had been worn down, and when i got a new one it just sat around. SO. i decided to make something out of the usable parts.
This might be just the ticket for recycling Grandma's old colostomy bags. I really hate to throw them out, but I haven't been able to come up with a good way to reuse them. I'll post my own Instructable once I've done some testing and worked out the details.
ROFL!!!

Btw, I once made IV bags using vacuum sealer bags with fish tank tubing and Shoo Goo. It was for a dummy IV practice arm I once made for school, not for any patient(s).

So after seeing this, I'm wondering if one were to use a bag wrapped in duct tape (to help make it "secure") and glue tubing in using something safer than shoo goo.

One could probably even link two or more bags into a series of bags (using a sealer) to make a larger one if necessary?

Just a thought.

that would definitely work
You can give them to me or sell them for cheap. They are such a rip-off.
Please tell me those aren't used...

why dont you just buy an extra bladder and use a plastic home depot t valve to split your bladders into one tube
