======= Now to preface this -- I use these bags for camping. I had hung them on the nearest tree for my family's daily use. ========
++ Sturdy constructed opening -- not flimsy made with a very hard plastic.
++ BPA Free liner -- yeah I know BPA Free doesn't necessarily mean it's free of leaching chemicals but what is these days besides pure metal or glass containers?
++ Multi Attachment tops -- I purchased a spigot and a shower attachment (that comes with a spigot) and used both on my two 10 liter dromedary bags. We seemed to use the shower attachment more often to clean hands and fill things up due to the fact you can guide the water with the hose to where you want it.
++ The thick cord weaved in every eyelet on the container made it easy to hang at the top. The eyelets held without any issue, no tearing, nothing.
My only gripes and don't get me wrong they're a light gripe but still something that makes me wrinkle my nose when I experience it:
- - - The holding handle is awkward on the 10 liter. Awkward in terms of once you've filled the bag up with 10 liters of water, it's hard as heck to hold it and screw the cap on at the same time. I end up grabbing the back end of the bag and around the handle to hold it up to screw on the cap. Perhaps a design where the 10 liter bags have finger holes would be much suited especially since the handle will more in likely get wet during filling.
- - - With regular use 10 liters goes by fairly quick while camping (washing hands, coffee, tea, steaming/cooking) it makes me wish they had a 20 liter version. The fix is to purchase more bags. I had two 10 liter bags, I'll probably camp with 4 10 liter bags next time. (usually I have two 5 gallon containers hanging from a tree).
- - - The cap attachments are pricey WHY? I understand a spigot being 10 bucks but the shower attachment which is literally some plastic tubing + a small fitted cap with holes in it does not equate to a 20 dollar buy -- I still bought it and enjoyed it but can easily replicated/fabricate the same thing. Next time, I'll just buy spigots and make my own shower tube for them from tubing bought from Lowes/Home Depot. Not to mention the cap attachments seem to be on back order from MSR's website and on almost all their re-seller's sites too!
All in all, if you're looking for something that will last and not leak -- get this product. When you do, don't forget to give it a few slaps when you walk by it -- for some reason it's enjoyable :)
The dromedary attaches to the msr miniworks, gaurdian, hydroflow, and any other filters with wide mouth bottle adapters. I like that it can be hung from a tree for easy pouring as well. It is exceedingly more durable than camelbaks or other plastic bladders.
1/7/15 Update. Another year has passed since I wrote the above review. I used (and abused) the Dromedary bag for seven months in Washington State and British Columbia again last year. I bought another to supplement--not replace--the one I've used for the last three years. Both are going with me this year on an 800 mile, 80 day kayak trip from Vancouver Island to Glacier Bay, Alaska, where toughness and reliability are absolutely required. My past experience with the first Dromedary sold me the second one. If your equipment gets knocked around a lot, the black version (not the red one) is the only way to go. The weight difference is insignificant. I still recommend the "Source" collapsible bottles for scotch . . .
