User Review: MSR Dromedary Bags
Source: bought it new
If you're going all in with your hydration kit, this is the way to go. If you're not willing to drop $90-$110 on this, get a Platypus, because you'll miss out on the real benefits of the system.
- Other MSR product pairing
- Durable exterior
- Easy camp water system
- Side string helps
- The price (you have to buy hose seperatly)
Got these a month ago, and I've been on two kayaking trips with them. Love the 10 L for me, my friend got the 4 L. As previously stated in a past review someone left, it kinda sucks that you have to buy the hydration line separately. The upside is you get to use MSR's magnificent water filtration device (the internal, not external).
I can't tell you how awesome it was to go to the river, pull out some water and have 10 LITERS of filtered water for washing, drinking, cleaning, etc. It was plenty. Everyone in my group of 15 ended up using a bit and I only refilled it once. No one had any problems figuring it out.
I like the cords on the outside, great feature that allows for easy hanging. If you get the accessories, they are all really well made and seem durable, although I don't know for sure. As for the durability, it's great. I tend to throw it around a bit more than I should, but it held up flawlessly. Tough construction.
