What I've been waiting for

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm not much of an ultralighter, I like being prepared--but the only reason I never carried a 3 liter reservoir before this one came out was because it was just too damn uncomfortable. It used to feel like you were wearing a log on your back between your back and pack.

The permanent connection between the two halves, which helps the bag keep it's flatter shape, is really the vital linchpin with these "newer style" camelback reservoirs. I can carry a 3L bag way more comfortably now. All the extra features they've added to these reservoirs are really just a bonus comparatively.

The quarter-turn lid is a huge plus, as rethreading the old lid on the older style reservoirs without spilling water was basically impossible. The hanging clip is also far stronger than the old one, and the quick release at the bottom of the bag makes quick refilling from your tap a breeze, without having to rethread the hose out of your pack straps.

Big win for Camelback here

Worked perfect

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I would fill it to the top and no leaks whatsoever. Very lightweight. Just make sure you close it properly. Bite valve might slide off; possibly Camelbak can come up with a better design. But no complaints otherwise

Cool Water

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great design, easy to fill, keeps my water cool. Sits flat across your back. I would suggest getting the insulated tube cover or the insulated director tube.

Works great, weird taste

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I did a leak test on it after I got it and drank out of it for a few hours. I washed it very well, but it seems to have a strange plastic taste to it. I filled it from my sink that has a filter on it so I thought it was that at first, but then put some bottled water in it and tasted the same thing. Hopefully it will go away with time. I think it is what they make the tubing out of that causes it.

I'll take the good with the bad

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My first hydration bladder was a CamelBak Antidote, it's lack of structure always bugged me, and the fact that the fill cap would get cross threaded so easily, just drove me batty. So I upgraded to a Osprey bladder which I instantly loved, it resolved the two primary issues I had with the Antiodote. Well this Christmas I got my dream backpack the Mystery Ranch Terraplane, and of course the all knowing Dana Gleason designed it to accommodate an unstructured bladder. So the Osprey went in my day pack and the 3L CamelBak Antidote Reservoir is back in the starting line up. No hard feelings!

Incredibly Handy!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love this bladder and have found it to be super useful on hikes & camping trips. I use it with an Osprey pack I have and it fits perfect, is easy to fill, and keeps me well hydrated on longer hikes. I haven't had any issues with leaks or other problems described in reviews. I've used it about 7-8 times by now and am grateful for the purchase. I definitely recommend it for hiking & camping.

There's no other bladder I'd use

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is the best camelbak bladder yet. Everything about this bladder is so well designed and functional. The wide mouth lets you add ice and makes it easy to clean. The material doesn't make your water taste like plastic.

Perfect

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

CamelBak stuff always seems to work just right. The snap-in connector for the hose is great - very convenient. It's a basic product, so there's not too much to say, but for what it is, it's perfect.

gets the job done

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I don't drink a ton of water when I am out so I am happy with this size option. It gets the job done!

Its a reservoir

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The positive
Holds water
Has tube and bite valve
Big bite valve is so easy to squeeze my 9 month old was able to work
Large cap allows ice to be added
Easier to dry reservoir out than non-ziptop platypus

The disappointing
New 1/4 turn cap, still fiddly to line up and get to thread in place
Cap stiff to turn due to seal placement
I can't figure out any real purpose for the center baffle or the fold down "dryer arms" the older designs stayed open about the same when hung and the center baffle prevents hand from fitting in the reservoir for cleaning (main reason for out-sized cap)
Reservoir will not attach to most water filters, unless you remove the entire bite valve which increases chance of leaks
Awkward to fill since the reservoir folds over below the cap when held by handle and effectively closes the back of the reservoir against the cap, spilling water as you try to fill. The new center baffle actually seems to make this worse since it keeps the back center pulled toward the front.
Some leaking but it may have been from improperly seated cap not the quicklink
Given the quicklink design expect to replace o-ring seal at least yearly depending on use and exposure to dirt. Clean and keep quicklink o-ring lubricated between replacement to extend life and ensure best seal.
Quicklink makes it difficult to use camelback accessories with other generation camelback or other brands.

I'll buy MSR in future, can still add ice, connects to most if not all water filters, super durable, less issue with filling since smaller cap allows reservoir to fall open instead of fold over, most tube leaks can be fixed by trimming the tube, about as easy to dry out when hung with inner part of bite valve removed.

Gives a weird taste to the water

Other than the taste thing, its a good bladder. But i cant really use it much coz the water tastes funny, Ive tried cleaning it but didnt really work. Wouldnt recommend it.

This item comes with a Bite Valve.

Stay Hydrated

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got the 1.5L bladder to replace an older CamelBak in my mountain biking pack. I love the twist-lock top vs. the threaded cap on the older bladders that was a true pain to open once screwed shut - The twist-lock creates a water-tight seal but is much easier to open.

Works great

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This works just fine. I got it to replace another one that I had had for about five years that I let sit around too long and developed some black gunk.

Leaky!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Quick connect at the bottom leaks on my 3L and didn't really notice until my daypack began to smell of mildew. I thought it was just from sweating on the trails.
Maybe the warranty will cover this if so then 5 stars would be more accurate due to my 1.5L performing flawlessly.

Simple and durable

I've been using CamelBak bladder systems since 2000 and this is the best standard bladder yet. I find this model easier to clean than previous with slightly more durable seals. The bladder is very durable and can handle years of use, though I tend to change mine out every other season. The weak point of the system seems to be the quick link, so just be careful when washing not to use scalding hot water which will damage the seal.

Works great

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have used this several times in my Black Diamond pack. So far it works great and is very simple to use.

great

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had 3 camelbaks since 1995. never got a hole-in-one. Camelbak wouldn't be a good golfer.

I love the updated design and functions!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have always been a Camelbak bladder fan and this model is a great upgrade from the previous model! The detachable hose makes feeding the hose through your backpack a breeze or leaving the hose in the backpack while you fill up the bladder or stick the bladder in the freezer (I have never had any problems from freezing my bladder or the bladder molding). The new cap is an easy quarter turn to lock in place and is easy to loosen when needed as opposed to the older model where you had to pass it around a group of buff guys just to loosen it up when you need to refile the bladder.

I would highly recommend this bladder to anybody and everybody over any other brand of bladder for it's ease of use, durability, and I've never had any of my bladders mold or mildew in the 7+ years I've been using Camelbak bladders.

Not a huge fan

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Not a huge fan of this bladder. As I usually use this bladder mountain biking, it is a little annoying having to turn on and off the switch for the bite valve instead of just biting down on the valve. I would like to be able to keep hands totally free. Also I've found that camelbacks in particular always have this strange sort of chemically taste even if I clean the bladder and keep it in the freezer to prevent bacteria growth.
