The MSR Dromedary Bag is a water storage bag for alpine and hiking adventures. The Dromedary Bag has been constructed with heavy-duty Cordura® fabric and laminated with food-grade polyurethane that can secure freezing, boiling, and even room temperature water. Oh geez! Did you just refill your drom bag, only to immediately drop it on the rocky slope back up to camp? No problem, it can totally handle that. The webbing at the outside edges helps with hanging when at camp and attaching into your pack. The cap is a 3-in-1, for speedy filling, drinking, and pouring when you're taking a break or just hanging around camp. What a wonderful vessel to have around, and you can even procure sold-separately accessories like a shower or hydration kit to make the adventure even better.

Great but careful with the lidThe product is great. Very durable bag that can be stuffed into your pack without too much worry over breaking. But on my last 3 day trek in the dry Guadalupe Mountains in west Texas I found the cap was slowly leaking water through the threads of the flip top cap. lining the threads with tenacious tape did not stop the leak. There is no damage to the cap that I can see, so the sudden leaking is a mystery. Had to keep the bag upright in my pack to avert disaster. Not an ideal situation. I would recommend keeping a spare cap in your pack just in case.

Perfect InsuranceI was deployed to Afghanistan from May to January a few years ago, and I can assure you that in May it is hot and getting hotter. Doing multi-day patrols I wanted to be able to carry more water on my person than I might actually need, just in case. This bag came in mighty handy when guys on my team had finished off their camelbacks, it was noon, and we still had about 6 hours of walking in the desert heat. It didn't necessarily save me, but I'm pretty sure it saved me from having to deal with some heat casualties in the middle of a large clearing operation. It's durable, seemingly unpoppable, and it works with any device that screws onto a nalgene. I love that I can get three different flows from the cap.

Amazing Water BladderI own the 10L and fell in love with it the first time I used it. I have put this dromedary bag through the ringer, countless patrols getting jostled around in my rucksack along with deployment when I was in the military. The strength of these bags are unbelievable, I once had a friend fill up his water bottle from it when he had it on the roof of my jeep and after 10 minutes of talking he forgot it was on the roof I drove off and it fell while I was going around 30mph and it didn't break. Great for hanging as a shower and using to fill up my whole team's water when they need it. I can't say enough about this bag and I recommend it to everyone I come in contact with in the outdoor industry.

Durable portable water carrierI've used a pair of the largest dromedary for 15 years now. Never had a leak. I've only ever used it for clean water. The bag does impart a rubber/plastic taste.
Great when you are planning to spend a few nights away from water. I use these because they have been reliable. I've had cheaper containers break which can be very frustrating.
My water filter screws onto the cap so easy to fill with filtration.
The cap is a 3 way thing, you have a squirt nozzle, a small 1cm screw top, and a big opening. Well designed. Usually use the middle sized opening to fill water bottles.

Great for the desertI own the 6 liter and several of the 2 liters. This is the most bomber backpacking water storage there is. They screw on perfectly to a miniworks filter, which is very convenient when you have to cover substantial distance between water filling areas. I wouldn't recommend treating water with iodine in them, as the taste lingers for a long time. Like a camelbak, it is worth taking the time to properly dry them out before long term storage. The three stage cap is convenient, and I've even used the 6 liter one as a passable pillow at night in a pinch.

Heavy duty waterbagI have used the 4L bag now for approx 4 years without any issue, the 3-in-1 cap gets worn over time but is still functioning witout any problem or leak. The rest of the bag is as good as new.
Two minor thinks that might have to be considered:
1. Then trying to dry the bag something needs to put in to allow it to dry completely.
2. The bag is black. Together with sunsine the water in it will get quite warm. This can be good or bad depending on the situation. In genereal I actually like this so I can double-use it as a solar-shower bag :)
Most of the time when using that bag I do cycle tours and attach it on top of my rear bicycle rack.
Definitive a "would-by-again"

The best collapsible water carrier I've found.An excellent product, that performs as promised.
I've used my 2L bag routinely for around a year, and it has come to replace my rigid Nalgene bottles and collapsible platypus bladder.
The ability to connect with the micro works filter is a handy feature, but it's main strength is the ability to kick it about, stand on it, drop it, and use it as a pillow without it being anywhere close to leaking.
The only fault I've been able to find, is that the water developed a plastic taste after a few hours in the bag. I had read other reviews and knew about this before I bought one, and the problems went after a few weeks. So I don't feel I can deduct points for this.
Overall a brilliant product, although you tend to get weird looks if you drink straight from the bag in public.

tough water carrierI've had my Dromedary for over 8 years. It has been through countless hikes, camps, hunts, fishing trips and storage. It has never failed, leaked or burst, going though hundreds of liters of water over the years. Highly recommended.
