We have a couple of camelbaks in the house and have tried out many different drying methods. This one is by far the best. It's easy to use, can be modified to fit different bladders, doesn't make noise, and doesn't fall apart if it gets bumped. It is simple but effective. Don't go with any other.
I have the 2012 Helena Camelbak which has a reservoir with a 3 liter capacity. Washing out the reservoir was a pain to do so I ordered this dryer to help me out. In order for the dryer to fit, I had to cut it as shown in the directions given for the dryer. Once it was cut, you just squeeze the dryer together and it fits into the reservoir nicely. This reservoir dryer has helped me SO much with the cleaning and caring of my Camelbak hydration pack. Highly recommended!

If I were a piece of plastic...this is the one I would want to be. Saving Camelbacks from mildew and mold across the nation, this simple yet effective design borders genius. I've seen some nasty Camelbaks in my day as a result of improper drying and this will prevent me from those woes. I am so happy that I was smart enough to buy this before I had to spend hours with a brush cleaner and bleach. Maybe you can be so fortunate too?
Very simple contraption, but it works very well. You just shove it into your reservoir and it allows it to dry out faster. It is a great accessory to have. I use it after every use. I hang it in the kitchen to let it dry out and my mom gets mad every time, " I don't want that big blue bag hanging from the cabinets". Well that is irreverent. Anyway you should get one
"Simple yet vital for camelbak reservoirs"
Yes, this thing looks like a cheap piece of plastic junk that you can make yourself but it is really useful. the way it flexes fits flawlessly into the bag and snaps to its original shape which opens up a aspace to completely dry your reservoir, thus eliminating nasty mildew buildup. Aslo a dry bag after cleaning=better tasting liquid the next time you use it.
This is a must-have for drying your CamelBak. Hint: works great for our kid's packs also, just cut the dryer (soft plastic) at the appropriate length for the water reservoir. Thanks to the phenomenal Moosejaw customer service rep for verifying this prior to my purchase. Directions are also included with the dryer.
This was the device I spent a year thinking I'd like to have before I found someone actually made it.<BR>Using a coat hanger as a substitute worked ok but it was not the best solution in the world. The CB Reservoire Dryer IS teh perfect solution. No more stale water or mildew buildup in the reservoir!
