On those trips where water is a little scarce, I like the 100 oz versatility that this CamelBak gives me. Often I just carry lighter weight water bottles of the 24 to 32 oz variety but when I'm hiking in the heat, this is the way to go. I like this one because I can just attach it to the pack or slip it inside the pack. I gave it 4 stars because it weighs close to 11 ozs but hey, when I'm in a warm environment, I want plenty of water with me, especially if the water sources are few and far between. Hydrating is the key to staying well in hot conditions. All in all, a very nice product for those who don't want to buy a complete CamelBak system.

I use one of the 100 oz reservoirs in my Ultimate Directions pack. This is a tougher bladder and fits in the bladder pouches of all my packs. I highly recommend replacing the original mouthpiece with the shut-off valve version. I love the large screw-top opening but it is tough to pour out of. Also, with the location of the opening, it makes it tough to get all the water out for storage. It is the best bladder I've used and I highly recommend it.

My first Camelbak. I like the large size of this one, since I have a voracious thirst. It fits very well in the hydration slot of my daypack. I've had no problems with the original mouthpiece, it has never let me down. I'm glad I finally got around to getting myself one of these. Much easier to stay properly hydrated than Nalgene bottles, unless it is too cold to use it.

I agree with Alan's complaint regarding draining the pack. It is difficult. Seems awful heavy for a hydration system too.

Overall an excellent product, compared to all of the other ones I looked at.

Very nice to have on longer hikes where water is not readily available. Stores plenty for about a day of hiking (depending on conditions). The only problems I have enountered were some difficulty in cleaning and having the hose pull out of the base on a Yosemite hike (luckily I was near a stream and pumped some more it, but it left my pack wet for hours). Water flow is much better than my old platypus

I love my CamelBak bladder. I purchased my first one in 2002 and have had no problems with it even though it has been used substancially. I used to not drink enough and would often be dehydrated after a weekend of backpacking, but not now. I have a 3L and a 2L bladder. I really like having the larger one because I like to be well-prepared.



I guess the only con I can think of is that you don't know how much water you have left without taking the bladder out of your pack, thus it's hard to gauge when you may need to conserve.



I have yet to see a hydration system that looks any better than this.

Bought mine a few years ago and have no complaints. It holds alot of water, doesn't leak and is easy to clean.
