Price Paid: $32
i have used this product only once and i liked it. i think like most people, i just used the good old standard camelbak crammed in my pack, but i was in the market for something a little bit lighter and the fact that i could screw it straight into my MSR water pump was a big plus. so i bought the 32oz.
The water never tasted funny whatsoever, but my only complaint was the bite valve dripped even in the locked pos. I had to leave the end of the hose pointed up ward and pinch the bite valve to let the water run back into the bladder, no big deal for me at the time but if you were somewhere that you needed to save the water I'm sure you could figure something out to save it from dripping on your chest while your hiking.
just remember when you're ready to get off the camels back this bladder is well worth it.
currently retails for:
$27.95 - $39.95
