"Excellent Product Holds Water and Doesn't Leak"
Having used bladders from Camelbak and replacement bladders from Walmart, I have long thought that hydration packs are great. I also thought that they are leak prone and basically disposable because after a couple months they were always unusable. This Osprey bladder shattered those misconceptions for me. It doesn't leak and it is durable. 1.The rigid back keeps its shape in your pack so it doesn't just become a squishy blob in the bottom of your pack.2.The handle makes it easy to fill, even with one hand.3.The magnet keeps the bite valve handy secure.
"Nice featured water reservoir. Recommend"
I like many things about this bladder. It's easy to fill, works perfectly with the poco plus, the magnet that holds the mouth piece is a plus, and it seems well crafted. I do get a little bit of the plastic taste (not as much as with some other bladders) but maybe I just need to clean it really well. Usually happens if the water gets warm but not as noticeable when icy cold. I like the bite valve as well. Seems pretty simple and straight forward. I recommend and use osprey bladders.
This I a great product if you are tired of camelback bladders exploding and ruining your day. I bought this because I really like having a hydration bladder versus water bottles but my camelbacks kept failing and it was starting to suck. This is a stronger bag with more protection to keep your water where it belongs in you bag!
If you're trying to decide whether or not to buy a reservoir-do it. I dragged my feet for a long time about spending my money on a purchase I thought wasn't necessary. But if you're like me and you relish the times on the trail where you are moving in rhythm, spacing out, and shredding miles like a shadow cat, then don't go another hike without a reservoir. Getting out in nature and "uncapping" my imagination is what it's all about, and nothing can scramble that experience like having to mess around with equipment or force an arm cramp trying to wrench your bottle free. So, get a reservoir and keep the flow going, literally and figuratively. This product in particular is excellent:-Water stays cool for a long time.-Fits perfect in an Osprey bag and easy to pack around.-Strong magnet that you can hook to any number of places on your pack so the nozzle is always right where you want and expect it.-I bought the 3L, and only fill it with 2L, which for $2 extra made sense to me.
I have used this extensively over the past couple of years. The rigid back helps keep the bladder from becoming distorted and bulbous making it a fantastic edition to your pack. I have never had any problems with it leaking. Very easy to clean because of the large mouth opening and the removal of the hose. The bite valve is very unique because it will not drip or leak because you actually have to bite it to open the valve, unlike other bladders on the market that have a tendency to leak while walking. It will take up a great deal of space in your pack.
I bought the 2 liter last year after a couple of Camelbak failures and will never look back. These are so easy to use, i love them. This year i bought the three litrer updated model and like the sleeker design. Ive had to contact Osprey in the past and they were amazing. They completely stood by me and satisfied my needs. Great company!
"Quality hydration pack with strong seams, a bite-valve that doesn't leak, and undeniable sex appeal"
After consistent (and not gentle) usage, this bladder is holding up much much better than anything Camelbak has ever put on the market. The bite-valve DOES NOT LEAK. If you've used a hydration pack before, you know that almost every different brand will leak at some point. It's just a question of when. If this pack leaks, it takes longer than a year of use crammed in a pack, tossed into a day bag, and accidentally sat on in a car for 7 hours. Using the handle keeps the mouth open during one-person filling. The wide mouth helps with filling from spickets at trailheads. Don't look at other packs. Just buy this one and save yourself some time.
These resevoirs are great. Sturdy and adaptable. Well made. Easy to fill. Easy to place in the pack. Easy to use. The magnet attachments also make the mouthpiece accessible. I have enjoyed this product.
Another quality product from Osprey. This reservoir is brilliantly designed, doesn't balloon up, and is easy to put into the pack thanks to the handle and backing plate. I also like the magnetic attachment; it keeps the hose where you want it and out of the way. My only complaint is that the lid is hard to screw on, but that's a minor concern.
