Quick Disconnect for water line on 10/09/2011 13:16:33 MDT Print View

Does anyone know where to get the quick disconnects for water lines? I've got a Sawyer inline filter connected to my Platypus bigzip. I'd like to get an additional quick disconnect to connect a hose to use (other than my bite valve) in camp for filling other reservoirs for cooking pots. Thanks!Female portion of quick disconnect

I've seen that part for sale at a mountaineering store in Mammoth Lakes. It was with the hydration pack gear. I'd like to buy the part that gets bonded to the water bag.

Please don't pay $13 for that part, you'll make me cry :(

Amazon has a bunch for <$4, although the 1/4" looks out of stock. 5/16" will probably work: http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/ref=sr_nr_n_4?rh=n%3A16310091%2Cn%3A%2116310161%2Cn%3A3021479011%2Cn%3A3021480011%2Cn%3A383602011%2Cn%3A383609011&bbn=383602011&ie=UTF8&qid=1318368354&rnid=383602011

Your local homebrew shop should have lots of quick disconnects of various styles.

Brad,
Wished I would have waited a little. I already bought one of of Amazon. Your link looks like the same thing. Oh well, maybe next time.
