They work wonderfully and highly reccomend them for
everone at a war. The advantage of staying in the
battle when rehydrating is unbelievable. I cant tell
you how many times ive backed of the line and gotten a
drink in a res battle after fighting for 10-15 minutes
straight. the beauty to it is that unlike going to
res, im right at the action and since i never remove
any armor to drink, if there is a push where my line
gets thined out 2-3steps later im right in the fray
filling the gaps. Its also great for those long wood
walks, we all know that battle is alway on the far
side from where you res :), and for the time spent
baking in the sun waiting for you turn in the front of
the bridge. Lets face it, water on demand without
unarmoring at all is handy in almost every melee.
As for a cowards plate i have used it over a camel
back before,. It worked well, but what id really
suggest as the key point is anything that covers them
up from being seen as much as possible.... cowards
plate, jin baori, under the main do, etc. all depends
on your armor style an what you wear. Any time i want
to look spiffy... demos etc i dont where it... simply
for appearances sake.
Also a big side benefit, ive been able to immediately
get water even in the middle of a large field to
injured, or heat troubled fighters on many occasions.
Just hand them the tube. Its a kind service to be able
to provide your comrades and foes alike.
