The pouch (10) may also be cold-filled with a drink fluid and preservatives and then sealed. The pouch is preferably designed as a disposable single-use item. In order to keep the pouch (10) contents fresh and to facilitate delivery of the fluid from the reservoir through a drink tube (20) the pouch (10) includes a unique tube connector structure. A first connector portion (14) is mounted to a wall of the pouch. The first connector portion (14) includes a closure member that keep fluid sealed in the bladder. A second connector portion (18) is matable with the first connector (14) portion and includes a structure that operates to move the closure member (16) to an open position when mated with the first connector portion (14). The second connector portion (18) is shaped to fit with a conventional flexible drinking tube (20).

L'invention concerne un système d'hydratation personnel comprenant une poche réservoir préremplie (10). La poche peut être remplie d'un liquide de boisson par un fournisseur, chauffée et scellée de manière aseptique. La poche (10) peut également être remplie à froid d'un liquide de boisson et de conservateurs puis scellée. La poche est de préférence conçue en tant qu'article à usage unique jetable. Afin de maintenir les contenus de la poche (10) frais et afin de faciliter la distribution du liquide à partir du réservoir par l'intermédiaire d'un tube pour boire (20), la poche (10) comprend une structure de raccord de tube unique. Une première partie (14) est montée sur une paroi de la poche. La première partie de raccord (14) comprend un élément de fermeture qui maintient le liquide de manière étanche dans la vessie. Une seconde partie de raccord (18) peut être accouplée à la première partie de raccord (14) et comprend une structure qui sert à déplacer l'élément de fermeture (16) vers une position ouverte lorsqu'elle est accouplée à la première partie de raccord (14). La seconde partie de raccord (18) est profilée pour s'ajuster avec un tube pour boire (20) flexible classique.
