Deuter Streamer 2.0
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $35
Works just like you would hope.
- No leaks
- No drips
I vacillated between the 2 and 3 liter reservoir, but as I mostly day hike with my nine-year-old I thought the weight of 3 liters was too much. Two liters each supplemented with bottles has been more than enough and if I had 3 liters I would carry 3 liters.
My father hates reservoirs and likes water bottles where you can get a a real mouthful and I see his point, but I hate fumbling with my pack when I can just sip on the go.
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Streamer reservoirs are lightweight, compact, and easy to clean. Made with polyethylene, you can enjoy a taste free hydration system. Due to the special molecular properties of the bladder, this system is very hygienic and the special co-extruded tube has a glass smooth inner surface without any taste. Absolutely leak-proof.

It can be easily stored in a separate compartment of your pack. Unlike most hydration systems that are made from polyurethane, streamers are made from polyethylene, which results in a taste free hydration system. Tube of the reservoir can be securely fixed to the shoulder straps. The Deuter hydration systems with their "helix valve" enable a constant flow of liquid without interrupting the flow of your sports. This top performing hydration system is available in multiple sizes. With competent hydration technology from source vagabond, it provides the best performance.

The Source Streamer 3.0 Reservoir will fit in any Deuter pack designed for three-liter reservoirs and many other hydration packs as well. Deuter has chosen not to make their own bladder, but source their bladder from Source, an Israeli company. Deuter has been working closely with Source to perfect their Streamer Reservoir. The result of this effort is represented with the all new Helix Valve. The new mouthpiece has a water stop tab and is absolutely drip free. Only light pressure is needed to activate the water flow. A spring integrated within the valve ensures instantaneous shut off of the water flow as soon as the valve is released. The Dirt Guard cap covers the valve during transportation to keep things tidy. But regardless of precautions, mountain bike equals dirty, so the Helix Valve was designed to easily be disassembled and cleaned. The reservoir itself is made from a BPA-free polyethylene (PE) plastic that boasts a surface as smooth as glass. Smooth is important because the smoother the surface, the harder it is for bacteria to attach itself. In addition, the surface makes it harder for taste, like old Cytomax, to remain after it the bladder has been washed. Beyond the glass-like surface, there's Grunge Guard, an anti-microbial coating designed to further keep mold at bay. Sealing the system is a bar-and-clip system that allows the bladder to be both opened completely and sealed completely, and is tough enough to be landed on.Deuter says the reservoir is so well-sealed that if you take out all the air after filling, you can probably leave the sack filled with liquid for a few weeks without growing mold. We don't want to try, but know that some of us are forgetful. Even when the Source Streamer 3-Liter Reservoir is dirty, washing with mild dish soap and warm water (under 140 degrees Fahrenheit) is enough to clean out the muck. For sterilizing, clean, dry with towels, and leave everything in the freezer overnight. Flush with water in the mor...
