Recent Hydration Reservoir Reviews

Platypus Hoser

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great reservoir, no taste or smell, and no leaks. I've been a hiker for a while now and have always used a simple Nalgene bottle, but finally gave in and purchased this 3L Platypus reservoir to go in a reservoir compatible day pack I already owned.   My first issue was that the sleeve in the day pack was too small for this enormous water bladder. Once I got it situated in my pack and routed the hose I was all set. The advantage of course is that when I want a drink I don't have to try and contort… Full review

MSR DromLite Bag

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Light and effective water supply bag for backpacking. I've used the 6L sized bag for many years. I carry it empty until near camp and then fill it as a water supply for around camp. These DromLite bags are a little lighter than the black MSR Dromedary bags. They are sufficiently durable for backpacking. I've never had any leakage issues, and the contents have never had a bad taste. I once had to replace a bag that was punctured by a pair of teeth from a pesky rodent wandering around camp at night… Full review

MSR Dromedary Bags

rated 5 of 5 stars I have borrowed the 10L dromedary from a friend a few times and love it! I have this dromedary on my list as one of my next purchases for sure. This dromedary stands up to a lot more than a plastic dromedary will. I have used it on a few treks and absolutely love it. It is very convenient that I am able to attach the dromedary to my backpack, instead of having to lug something by hand around to have water. Full review

Platypus Hoser

rated 5 of 5 stars Goal: hydration system that works all the time, is comparatively durable, works with multiple water filtrations systems and components, and is the lightest weight. Bar none, the solution is the Platypus Hoser. I am more of a hiker and less of a camper. So my hydration system needs to be more for an athletic backpack that takes a beating. In other words, I would be more forgiving if my hydration system was not perfect for camp. So, I was thrilled to discover through many miles and camps that the… Full review

Source Widepac Hydration System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Revolutionary design for a water bladder and it's just as tough as they say it is. Love the slide closure! Great for backpacking (3L) or hiking (1.5 or 2L). Keeps water fresh for days. Okay, I don't know where I read the first review for this bladder, but when I watched a car drive over a full one without it bursting, I thought "what the hell do I have to lose?" I'd never heard of SourceOutdoor and although I was tempted to go with a Platypus for about the same price, I decided to try the Widepac… Full review

MSR Dromedary Bags

rated 5 of 5 stars These bags are pretty much indestructible. I've had two of these in the last 10 years. The first one didn't break, it got lost or stolen. I've tried Camelbak and Platypus bags, but they never last long. I spent a lot of time in the woods doing trail or project work. The MSR bags hold up really well. The lace around the edge of the bag is useful for hanging it up or attaching to over full packs. The different caps and attachments are kind of cool too.  Full review

CamelBak Omega Reservoir

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Any bladder type device for carrying water can leak. I have yet to see one that worked properly, and I've seen a lot. A simple water bottle will outperform a bladder any day. After a few hours of climbing it's pretty maddening to realize that the bladder leaked and now everything in the pack is wet. Full review

CamelBak UnBottle

rated 4 of 5 stars Good storage with diversity of applications, especially in conditions where it's helpful to keep contents cool or warm (above freezing) The Unbottle has gone through several design iterations. The first one I purchased and used had simple D-rings on the sides, a hose and handle without the current quick detachable feature, an unbaffled bladder, and no fold-out drying wings. That early version got lots of use. I liked the simplicity of the no-frills design, large opening that allowed easy cleaning,… Full review

MSR DromLite Bag

rated 4 of 5 stars A tough utilitarian bladder that is lightweight and folds up small when not in use. This bag works great for transporting and storing water for use in camp or along the trail. The bag itself is made of 200 denier Cordura that is coated with food grade polyurethane. The Cordura provides a durable outer surface that so far has been puncture resistant and shows little signs of wear. From the manufacturer the polyurethane coating is BPA free and does not taint the taste of water and from my experience,… Full review
