When we first endeavored to bring a hydration reservoir to market, we knew it had to be groundbreaking in all respects – carrying water should never compromise fit, comfort or stability in a pack. The Osprey Hydraulics™ reservoir is now entirely designed and manufactured by Osprey, carrying forward key innovations while offering major improvement to many features. Combined with excellent reservoir-to-pack integration, superior technical features and the best gender specific pack-to-body fit and performance available, our hands free hydration program takes another giant leap.

I have had no problems with leaking and that includes use in 15°F weather. The cap will leak if not screwed on appropriately. I have not found this to be an issue for me, it just requires you to be more conscious of replacing the cap.
I've had no problems with the bottom of the tubing coming out with pulling and I've found the tubing to be sufficiently long. The only place it HAS pulled apart is the center of the tubing where it disconnects for easier cleaning. Also, the water tastes just fine to me, however I use filtered water and not that crap that tastes like chlorine that comes out of a tap.
It seems strange that I've been using mine for as long as I have without issues, whereas it seems others have had significant problems.
Basically if you think about purchasing one of these, be aware that it apparently seems to have some duds in manufacturing.
By the way I use mine about 4 times a week for an hour run or so and then at least once a month for backpacking.
I had the older 2L style that came with my osprey bag (the red and grey reservoir) and my bite valve had holes in it from being used. (it's a couple years old). I went to my LBS and tried to get just a bite valve, but they only had complete reservoirs and they were on sale. I bought a complete 3L as he said it would fit in my pack. It barely fit and it changed the firment of the backpack even when only filled to 2L. The opening constantly tries to crossthread and makes a mess whenever I try to use it. Fed up, I pulled the rubber off the bite valve (only thing I needed) and installed it on my older reservoir. The complete bite valve does not work, as the hose between bladder styles got smaller.
I went on a limb and got this one, trying to get the size for my pack correct as my older, better bladder is starting to taste funky (I need to chlorinate it, I've been washing it but it's old). It fits correctly in my bag and this opening works much better than the 3L bladder I have. This 2L bladder is usable and decent. It would be 5 stars, but the old bladder was sooooooo much better.
I would use a camelback bladder but my pack is formed for these bladders and I much prefer the osprey bite valve.
I recently bought an Osprey Atmos AG 65 L bag and thought it would be nice to have a reservoir to match. I read the reviews for this product, some said it worked great, some said it leaked. I thought "the people who had their bladders leak probably didn't know what they were doing" and went ahead and bought this. BIG MISTAKE.
Save yourself time and money and DO NOT BUY THIS under any circumstance. Don't make the same mistake I made. I would return it but I opened it and threw it in my pack before leaving for a week long hike before trying it out.
It's best to fill and pack first for ease in an overnight pack, but can still slide in with a full pack. I've had no issues with suction/water flow. Osprey changed the tube size to 1/4", which is a good thing as it it fits most quick change valves (mine is cut to allow for direct input from my water pump).
The knock - the cap. You're going to have issues and it's only a question of when. The twist cap becomes stuck making it so you have to hold the blue plastic clip in order to securely twist the cap into place. I've found using olive oil (any vegetable oil will do) on a Q-tip to lubricate the cap between the grey and blue part works well. Probably should avoid a synthetic lubricant like WD-40 unless you're feeling adventurous and are okay with your water smelling like your car's last oil change. This is where the old reservoir has it better - the cap on the old one is highly reliable.
Overall, it's good and would be 5-star with a better and more reliable cap (I'd prefer not having to take cautious lubricating measures every time I go on overnight trips).
As with all resevoirs and water filtration devices, proper care is necessary. Take 3 minutes to pull it out of your pack immediately, drain, insert a paper towel, and then hang to dry. Unless of course you prefer that old musty scent. I do expect better though of Osprey with regard to the cap considering I'm not the only one who has to deal with this issue.
