Rated 5 out of 5 by from Let it flow, let it flow... I used to use a camelbak, but when filled with just water it tasted like plastic no matter how many times I washed it. Enter the Platypus. No plastic taste whatsoever. The water tastes pure and I dig that. The bite valve is a little different than a camelbak, but I'm used to it now and even like it better. I only use water in it without ice, but with the small opening it might be hard to add a lot of ice. Also cleaning it isn't as easy as a camelbak because of the opening. I also wish the hang loop had a clip to use with all packs. Even with those little quibbles, I love this thing and will gladly buy another when this one is done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the few ladders that will fit in my Arc'teryx pack. I mainly use the Camlbak 70oz For my daily hiking needs. I bought this blatter because it was one of three that can go into the zippered bladder sleeve on the Arc'teryx Altra 65 pack. The main drawback to this bladder is that it has a very small opening for filling. They are made of a of very durable plastic that has not given me any problems with punctures and seems highly resistant to them. I prefer the eCamlbak Big Bite mouthpiece and after talking to the platypus rep I tried to change out the mouthpiece on the hose. In spite of what I was told by the rep these mouthpieces are not interchangeable whatsoever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a great reservoir at a competitive price. this is a great reservoir. i got a camelbak hydropak from goodwill for 75 cents, but it didn't come with a bladder so i started looking. i was looking for something that would be light and durable, but most of all, wouldn't taste like plastic. price also played a big part in the decision. after about a week of looking around, i landed on 1.8 ltr platypus they have so many size options - it's awesome!. it fit all of my criteria and it was the cheapest by 5 or 10 bucks. this was also my first moosejaw purchase, and i was thrilled. i will definitely order from these guys again, and the sticker they sent me is already being displayed on my car. the only issue with this reservoir is i'm n

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hydration system, just don't over tighten Bought the 2L for a trip to Yosemite. Did the Half Dome hike and Mt Conness. Worked really well for the entire trip. Bought an extra cap to make it easier to change between my other Platypus bottles without having to re-thread the hose through make pack. One problem I did encounter was over tightening the hose did lead to a leak. Just had to test it before I put it back in make pack. ,,,,I have two other Platypus bottles and I can't imagine what i would ever replace them with. Did I mention that my buddies Camelbak ended up with a pin hole?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightest Bladder on the Market For starters this is the lightest 3.0L bladder you can buy. The durability seems to be good as well. The biggest downside to me is the bite valve. That thing is worthless as well as the lapel clip…. Pure crap. I replaced the bite valve with a camelback shutoff one. Oddly enough both bite valve setups weight 6 grams but you get the shutoff with the camelback. No brainer. The fill hole is a bit small and depending on your purification method this might pose a problem. With all that being said I like it. Plus I use it as my clean bag for the clean stream filter. No need for 2 bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Only Hydration System You Need Why the Platypus Hoser Hydration System? It's lighter, it's tough, and the small cap means less threads and therefore less threat of Giardia. Don't get the zip, the camelbak, etc. This is the bladder you need. I purchased the 3 liter so I usually fill it up with less than 3 liters, or I can fill her up to 3 when extreme circumstances arise. This is the must-have hydration system for those of you trying to lighten your pack weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good hydration system, great price I really like the Platyus bottles so I decided to give this a try. It works just fine, and I'm starting to lean towards switching all my bladders to these. The whole issue is that my Camelbaks get dirty out on trips- I clean them up real well and go out again- if I'm using them a lot they eventually get kinda gross and hard to clean. These are so inexpensive that you can use them for awhile then when they hit that point, just replace them. And they seem a bit lighter than most systems. Wish I could find a valve cover for it though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Trusty but crusty. Great durable bladder. High quality construction keeps/puts water where you want it to be. Nice mouth piece, offers sufficient flow. ,,Without one of the large complicated openings in some other bladders, this one is less likely to fail, but it also means it hard to clean and you aren't fitting normally sized ice cubes inside. If you think ahead and have access to a freezer, just fill it up 1/3 the way, freeze it up, and it will keep the rest of you water, and your back, cool the next day.
