I bought this link to attach to my Osprey Reservoir. I like the on/off switch. And the quick connect makes a big difference for me because my backpack does not have an external sleeve to hold the reservoir. Without this product, to re-fill my reservoir, I would have to unpack my pack, remove and re-fill the reservoir, and then repack the same. Now I can use the quick link on the fly. The quick link can also be used with a Katadyn Vario and other similar filtration products.
This product is great, but I will have to say to get the manufacturer mouthpiece off and get this one on is very difficult. We almost tore up our tube getting the mouthpiece off. But once we got the mouthpiece off, the product works great!
"No need to take your reservoir out. Ever! Well, that's not totally true!"
This product is the bees knees! The quick connect makes it super simple to switch from the big bite to the valve for connecting your filter. There is absolutely no need to take your reservoir out of your pack to fill it up while out in the wild (however, I do recommend taking it out when you get home to clean it!). I totally recommend this to anyone!
The web site was easy to navigate through and answered all my questions so that I didn't need to use the customer service link and the price was definitely right. The components are strictly top notch and easy to use compared to copies/fakes.
This thing rocks. I love not having to take my bladder out of my pack to fill it up. In fact, if I have someone dig my filter out of my pack for me--then I don't even need to take my pack off to fill up!
This thing works great. The valve seals off the bite valve so you don't leak water all over the place. In addition, the time you save by not having to take your bladder out of your pack to refill it with your filter is priceless.
