A OK, but I will replace it with a different brand bladder
on August 27, 2012
I've purchased a 2L bag for my camping/hiking trips.
This is my first hydration bladder, so I am not comparing it against any other products. These comments are solely based on my experience after using this product for about 10 months.
Easy to fill
The bag will not give water odor or taste even after 24 hours
Difficult to turn on/off
Difficult to disassemble the bag and the tube for cleaning
No option available for bite valve cover (must DIY if you want one)
To me, cons are greater than pros as my fingers start hurting after turning on and off the valve especially during cold seasons, and I cannot disassemble the tubing myself without a help of a male member of my family. I tend to think that the bite valve touching everything (my sweaty clothes, etc.) is gross and need some cover. While there are positive things about this product, I am going to purchase a new bladder from a different brand.
