I like the idea of a “hydration system” and the bite valve. But, in practice, this was just an extra leaky bladder – more than most. First time out, the bite valve at the end of the tube got under my pack as I was loading it and poured 2 quarts of slightly sticky liquid into my van.

The threaded cap is a useless feature that adds weight. It is also an area where extra seams have to be sealed. Extra seams mean extra potential for failure. And, that’s just what happened. After about a month, it sprung a leak somewhere around this opening which this time soaked into my pack. Fortunately it was only water this time.

I’m going back to Gatorade or bottled water type bottles for good.

Had it and used it once, its very thin and I felt it might pop in my pack. I went w a camel back and I am very happy, so far.... no pops..

I bought this to use in my Palisade and Denali but it leaked (a lot) the second time out. I'm disappointed in Gregory with this product. Gregory makes excellent gear, otherwise, but this bladder, doesn't stack up.

It's great to have a gallon of water in a bladder, but not to have it all over your gear.
