This product picture doesn't give you much to go on unless you're already familiar with the product. I've uploaded some photo's that show you what you actually get. Included in this purchase is the 30mm cap (yellow) the 28mm cap (green) and the big Nalgene sized 63mm cap. Also included, of course is the tube with bite valve.

The lids and tube are well made and fit together without leaks. They use a no gasket style lid, which relies on pressure to seal instead of a softer material that forms a seal. The built in one way valve keeps the vacuum from building up in your rigid container when you drink. I haven't had a problem with this system yet. Overall it is a great product that fills a very specific need.

I'm using the large lid to create a drip filter from a hanging Nalgene Canteen that has a Sawyer Squeeze filter in-line with the tube works great at a fraction of the cost of other gravity filers.

I'm a wildland firefighter and I've been using this product for about a year with no issues. Previously I used a bladder bag but eventually I quit because it was a pain to fill and more than once leaked all over my pack. Now I use four wide mouth Nalgene bottles and just switch the cap when I run out. I've never had the vent or the cap leak. I didn't like the hose it came with because it was short and didn't have a shut off valve so I cut the end off of my old camelbak and it slid right in without leaking. I've had it caked with dirt and the vent continues to function without ever letting in dirt. Great product for firefighters who are used to dropping there pack to grab a water bottle or top off their bladder bags. We're ordering up 5 more for the rest of the crew right now.

Used it with a wide mouth Nalgene bottle, no leaks. Bite valve works well once you get the hang of where the bite point is.

The Blue Desert SmarTube Hydration System is a perfect and just what I was looking for as part of my Mountainsmith Lumbar-Recycled Series Day TLS R Backpack hiking system. I use this hydration system with Nalgene Silo Tritan Wide Mouth 48 Oz Travel Bottle in conjunction with OD Green Hydration Pack Insulated Drink Tube Cover. The 40 inch tube is long enough to use even though I am using a 48 ounce Nalgene bottle. With this hydration system I no longer have to stop hiking to get to my water. It makes hiking so much more convenient and enjoyable. I use two of the 48 ounce Nalgene bottles so when one bottle is empty I simply transfer the hose to the other bottle. It is very quick and easy to use.

I have not experienced any leaking and the bite valve works as expected. Using the insulated drink tube cover keeps the water cool even though the tube is exposed to direct sunlight. The SmarTube comes with a small clip so that you can clip the hose to a piece of gear to keep it in place.

Overall Assessment:

I really like using the Blue Desert SmarTube Hydration System in conjunction with my wide mouth Nalgene bottles. It is easy to use, easy to clean, and keeps me hydrated on long hikes without having to stop to access my water. This system was exactly what I was looking for and I am very happy with its performance. I highly recommend this product.

Blue Desert's customer service is also very fantastic - I lost the little silicone pressure valve from the cap, and all it took was an email to their customer support to get a replacement. I've been very happy with this hydration system, and would recommend it to anyone that wants a combination of a water bottle and a camelbak-style drinking tube system. Perfect for backpacks!

Great product, works exactly as described! I have mine attached to a small nalgene bottle, which is parked in a bottle holder on a waist belt, so I can take it to the gym, carry it easily while weight training, and have water readily available while I'm doing my aerobic exercise.
The only two things I didn't especially care for:
1. the hose needs to be about 6" longer. I'm 6 feet tall, and with the bottle down around my waist, it barely reaches my mouth. I was hoping I'd be able to run it up my back and over my shoulder (too short), then hoped I could run it up my front (barely reaches), and finally ended up tucking the bite valve into my pocket. Seems I'll have to buy a 3rd party hose extension kit, and either replace this hose with a longer one, or splice a 12" piece into it. We'll see which one is easier!
2. The clip (to attach the hose to your clothing or pack strap) that comes with this kit is kinda wimpy, and really didn't do well in holding the hose where I wanted it. Maybe if you're using this while imitating a statue, and not moving around, it would work okay, but as soon as I moved, it would come right off. They also offer an alligator clip/snap strap type of hose clip, similar to what Camelbak carries, but I'm guessing finding the Camelbak (or generic) branded one will be easier.

Finding accessories for these kits is hit or miss, you'll have to do a search online, since it appears the only items carried on Amazon are the bottle kits and hydration packs (that hold a bottle that the kit attaches to). An oversight, for sure, as I'm betting the accessories would sell too!
