Rated 5 out of 5 by CoolBreezeEase Great Hydration!
The bladder is so easy to twist open and close, you almost think you did it wrong. lol. but it is in fact closed!
We have used it twice for our tandem kayak trip. The hose was great because the person in the kayak closest to the bag could use it to hydrate while paddling. We did not have any leak issues on our trips. If we bought a hose extension it could reach all the way to the front of the kayak for the other paddler.
Our issues were more user errors or personal preferences.
My boyfriend didn't like that the hose part was not insulated causing the water in the hose to get hot. But now we know we can just push the water back into the bladder out of the hose.
I would recommend getting the bite valve guard case so that the bite valve does not get pressed accidentally and leak.That did happen to us at home. But my boyfriend pointed out that he can just use the yellow lever above the bite valve to close off the hose.
We use it a lot around the house as a water option. While sitting on the couch watching t.v. my boyfriend will have my camelbak next to him and drink from it. It has really helped my boyfriend to drink more water.

I selected this product because it holds three liters of water. An invaluable feature on demanding day hikes or backpacks.

Just what we wanted. The old one was worn out. The new twist closing is so much better.

This bladder is awesome. I bought it in the beginning of the summer and it has held up though a lot of hiking. It's easy to get water out of even when it is almost empty. The water doesn't slosh around, it has a great internal system. Highly recommend.

I'm a huge fan of this product. My backpack's water bottle holders are on the side of the pack; the Camelbak allows me to hydrate while on the move, a huge plus in my mind. This model's 100oz capacity is another plus, giving me peace of mind that I'm not going to run out of water. It's easy to fill and a final, added bonus is the internal baffles help prevent "sloshing".

Great product! Used it recently hiking a N.Y. stretch of the A.T. where water is scarce and often polluted. 1/4 turn cap made opening a breeze. Internal baffle did its' job by reducing the annoying sloshing sound, The disconnect hose was great for filling up right from my Katadyn pump, and the bite valve was easy to operate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NordicHammer2 Great bladder!
Perfect size for a long day of hiking, no need to worry about going dry. The hose attachment feels solid, and I like the design of the 1/4 turn cap. As a bonus, the side bladder supports make drying it out afterwards very easy.

I bought this as a replacement to go in my Camelbak Mule - lost the original on a motorcycle trip. First of all, it fit perfectly and I had no problems with leaks. I filled it, dried it, squeezed it and hung it on the doorknob for a while. Nada. Secondly, my original gave the water a pretty foul plastic taste, which I assumed would be pretty standard, but it ain't so, Joe. This one leaves the water as tasteless as from the tap (well, we won't go into that too far). I plan on taking it into Yellowstone for a backpacking trip this spring, so we'll see how zis holds up for ze rough stuff, no?
