Price Paid: $27
Bought two and, like a fool, never tested them until the night before our departure. One failed where the quick connect joins the bag. Replaced it with an MSR bladder that never failed. Second bag sprung a leak at the top of the bag two days into the trip. Fortunately, was at the top of the bag, and was still able to use it. Will never buy Nalgene bladder again. Bottles yes, bladders NO. Returned them to REI.

When it's time to upgrade, this new, low-maintenance, easy-access 2-liter reservoir system from Nalgene is the perfect solution. New! Both the drink tube and reservoir feature Aquaguard™ antimicrobial protection, helping prevent the growth of bacteria and mold. New! Magnet on valve sticks to a magnetic clip that attaches to a pack strap, so the Bite Me™ valve stays perfectly positioned for drinking. Angled Bite Me valve has a locking on/off switch that prevents leaking during transport. Quick-connect hose makes the reservoir easy to refill because you can remove it while leaving the drink tube in place. CXC polymer retains no residual taste, plastic taste, or smell--making this reservoir system ideal for flavored drinks and water. Large 63mm opening allows easy cleaning and filling; tethered cap with leak-proof Nalgene® threads fits most water purifiers.
