i have used the 2L version of this for years and they are awesome. for hunting im using the 10L for camp water with an inline gravity type filter setup. you can also leave it sitting in the sun all day and clean yourself off with some warm water. these are the best bladder bags i have found. never used the Dromelites, as i read mixed reviews on them. ill take a few extra ounces of weight for durability.
as soon as my refund gets processed for the faulty bag, ill have another one coming. MSR gear is some of the finest.
I've also never had any issues with taste. I did a few cycles of letting it sit full with tap water overnight to get rid of any rubber taste, and that did the trick. I've not used any iodine tabs in it yet so I don't know if it will retain that taste.
The wide mouth also makes cleaning and drying a breeze.
I really have nothing but positive things to say about the Dromedary. MSR makes rock solid products in general and this one definitely lives up to the MSR name. Highly recommended for back country expeditions, climbing, day trips, etc.
Fill up full with 10L water and put under hot sun for 3hrs (from 12pm - 3pm), water came to be very warm, think it reach at least 50*C, hotter than my electric shower!
Test drinking a full cup from it, no after taste even when water is so hot!
Can be use to heat up water before bringing to boil, cutting down on gas/electricity and time. Making soup or disher using hot water can also reduce cooking time. Washing and bathing using this bag is not a problem except the water might be too hot for bathing (just add cold water to adjust).
I've own a few camp shower bag but it is PVC (not safe for drinking). This MSR bag however, is easier to hang, is BPA free (safe for drinking) can use as a water carrier, shower bag and even a PILLOW (water pillow)! The material is super tough (my camp shower tear after some uses). Just buy the spigot cap to swap with the original cap for easier water access and you're good to go...
Will I be buying again? I can't think of a reason not to...
In fact, the only complaint I have about the product is the way it handles drinking water: though MSR boasts a food-grade lining, the bag imparts a strong chemical taste and smell to the liquid within. We've put a few dozen liters of water through these bags already, and they still make the water taste funny. I guess I'll have to take MSR's word that it's harmless, but I prefer to rely purely on the Nalgene and Sigg bottles I carry with me for drinking water.
Where the MSR Dromedary bags have proven most useful is water for washing. The sides of the bag have eyelets through which a strong rope is run. It's a cinch to hang the bag from a tree or a fence so that you can shower or wash dishes under it. The cap has several parts to it, so you can either remove it completely (making a 2-inch opening), allow a fast flow of water (1/2-inch opening) or a smaller trickle (slightly less than the width of a straw). The smallest opening is enough for washing up dishes and utensils and encourages saving water.
The fabric feels very durable and I throw the full bag from my bike to the ground regularly without fear. Although the Dromedary is supposed to be MSR's "heavier" water bag (the retailer also has a DromLite series), it seems completely lightweight and when empty packs into a very small space. I typically strap the MSR bag to the top of my rear rack with a pair of bungee cords, and the full bag handles being pushed and pulled at various points without complaint.
