Review by jur001 on Feb. 01, 2008
Although the price is great, the accessories are awfully overpriced. The cleaning kit costs as much and two tablets half of the price. Also doesn´t come with a cover on the big bite valve, nor a water stopper - once flooded my car, and got my sleeping bag all wet before a long climbing trip.

Great way to make sure you enough water for the trail. Makes it convenient to drink while moving and not having to stop. Easy to clean and fill. Once empty, folds up fairly compact and is light.
Might want to invest in the shutoff valve, otherwise the bite valve can get pinched in transport and drain itself. Also if you plan on doing cold weather excursions invest in the insulator for the hose or it will freeze unless you keep blowing the water back into the reservoir.

Wide top so you can get your hand in to clean out and dry out for storage. Quick dissconnect for the drink tube and mouth piece (on mine). I have the military version which is OD in color and has a bunch of quick disconnect ends
The seals on the QD hoses can go bad and leak.
Camelbak is the best but there are allot of other comparable brands.

Great volume. Good construction. Water in it doesn't taste like plastic (which happens with others).
Traded out the valve for an older one. Didn't appreciate it draining two liters of water into my other gear while packed in the back of my car.

Holds lots of water (enough to share). The water stays fresh.
Water in tube gets hot in the sun and freezes without insulation on cold days.

Easy to clean, no funky build up, durable! Easy to fill. Holds lots of water.
The first few liters out of it tastes plastic-y.

It really is a great, durable product. I use it in a light bag for biking and it comes in handy when I need it the most. It doesn't sweat as much as the off brands and so far I have had no leaks from the bladder itself.
The valve isn't shut-off. It DOES sometimes leak from the bite valve if it gets smashed and this is an issue. I'd say invest in a shut-off valve, but the accessories are pricey.

Holds water, Bite valve works, not that hard to clean, Big opening is easy to fill.
Kids might bite thru your bite valve and then you gotta spend $10 on a replacement, sometimes tough to open

great back never leaks no problems
wouldn't say bad features just lacking, i would suggest buying a water stopper, if u pinch the mouth piece on anything it just all leaks out

Practical way to stay hydrated.
Difficult to refill on the trail...freezes in cold weather?
