Rated 1 out of 5 by from A bad taste I purchased a medium sized one of these and was disconcerted to find that it had a bitter taste. I rinsed it but it still had that taste. I wrote to Cascade Designs and they replaced my unit with a different one which had the same bitter taste, including after rinsing. I wrote to them again but have not heard back -- that was some months ago. I can only assume that the product is badly flawed. I mean, if water tastes bad coming out of the water bag, what good is it? I used an earlier similar bag from Cascade Designs, with a clear bag. Unfortunately it began to leak after some years of use. Up until it began leaking, it worked perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from unbreakable hydration pouch I bought this 3 years ago and it never leaked (unless in winter) and I've never had any problems with it, but if you use it in winter, make sure there's no ice in the lid, otherwise it may screw in a weird position and leak. However, the only real very small problem is the small clip used to clip the tube to a sleve pack, it's not super strong and will unclip fairly easily But in overall, it's awesome and the problems are nothing compared to the confidence of being able to put in your pack and know it won't leak or break (unless in very special circumstances) and this hydration pouch is way better than any other I've seen!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great body, but wish the cap/seal was better. I work as an outdoor professional, so my gear gets used heavily. I am on my second MSR Hydromedary bladder so far (MSR replaced my first one at no charge), and used both for ~200 field days before the seals around the caps (1st one) or the cap itself (2nd one) failed. Both times, this resulted in an entire bladder full of water being disgorged in my pack, soaking all my gear. I bought this particular bladder in the first place because I've been impressed with the Dromedary bags, and because I figured the nylon construction would hold up better than all the plasticky options out there. I was correct about the durability of the bag--I have had no issues with the material whatsoever, and suspect the bags themselves will wear like tanks for many years longer than their caps and seals. Unfortunately, due to the problems with the caps and seals and the resulting watery disaster that ends up in your pack, I am wary of this product. I want to love it. I really want to love it. There are definitely lovable things about it. But right now I love it with the caveat of trepidation and fear that comes from sleeping wet, and I'm not sure that's a sound enough basis for a long-term relationship.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Toughest bladder I know of, but... I bought this last year. I've gone through several hydration bladders over the years. All have eventually sprung leaks, necessitating replacement. The Hydromedary feels like it will last forever. I have one complaint, though, and it means a lot to me. Even though I've used the bladder on several trips, it still gives a sort of 'chemical' flavor to my drinking water. I'll overlook this on big outings where I really need a good, tough bladder in my pack, but on smaller outings I'll bring my Nalgene bottle and my MSR pump filter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable and light Had one of these until they became impossible to find where I live. Very light, seemed pretty indestructible. Mine didn't seem to have a bad taste either! My big issue was that I wished the cap was attached somehow! I tried taking the cap off a nalgene but that didn't work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hydration bladder I have used a 3 liter hydration bladder/ dromedary for several years. It easily fits in my various packs & is easy to clean and fill. I trust it not to leak & it has never failed me. I hike an average of 500 miles a year & take my hydration & gear seriously.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tough material, secure no leak seal, U.S. made. It' is a good product but they should teather the cap, make the lid start to screw on easier and improve the bite valve because the lid can easily become seperated while filling or cleaning, is tough to start onto the opening, (which is large for adding ice and cleaning) and the bite valve flow is limited and becomes less the harder you bite down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Hydration Pack Over the past year or so, this hydration system has worked exceptionally whenever I had used it. It shows now minimal wear and performs the same as new. I am very pleased with this product overall, but am especially happy that the MSR microfilter will be able to hook directly to it. I would recommend this product, but must say that any buyer should pay close attention to the sizes to make sure it fits in their pack.
