Use this bladder to fill your bladder!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love this bladder! I have used it for hiking and touring and I look forward to camping with it! I have to say that the 2 liter looked small and I was skeptical but it held me over for a full day! It fits into my Dakine Heli Pro Pack DAK2076 perfectly! and it is easy to fill and doesn't leak! Also you can fill it and then attach/detach the hose without any problems. However if you are in below freezing temps I would recommend getting the insulated hose CAM0414 so that you don't have to worry about ice forming in the tube.

Use this bladder to fill your bladder!

Great bladder!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great bladders and have always worked well for me, the quick connect is a great addition in the last couple years of this. Make sure you grab the cleaning kit to go with it, its item # CAM0420, the crucial part is the skinny cleaner to run through the tube and its nice to be able to hang it from the quick link for easy drying.

Does its job

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

It works great. The detachable hose is a huge improvement over the old bladders

For skiing should I go with the 2L or 3L?...

For skiing should I go with the 2L or 3L?

Best Answer Responded on

The size of CamelBak Antiodote Reservoir you use really depends less on the whether you are skiing, trekking, or snowshoeing, and more on whether you are skiing the resort or deep backcountry. The three factors to consider are weight, space, and proximity to more water.

If you are skiing the resort and are always within 45 minutes from a water source I would recommend the 2L. No sense in waisting precious space and weight when you can refill whenever you want.

But if you will be an hour or more from a good water source I would suggest that the 3L is worth the added weight and moderate bulk.

A Solid Bladder

It holds a good amount of water, and works perfectly. I have taken it with me for hikes as well as ski runs. Water flows easily through it without too much effort, and seems to be quite sturdy in terms of holding up the water. Overall something handy to have for hydration purposes in the outdoors.

Works part of the time...

I would prefer to give this 2.5 stars...

My wife has used this bladder a couple years ago & it seemed to do the trick. It worked like it was made to do. One day though we filled it up and put it in her pack & later down the trail we noticed it was leaking. It seemed that the 'quick connect' attachment at the bottom was not attaching fully... we messed with it until we just gave up & ever since we have been bringing our trust Nalgene's...

Works great

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used this on countless backcountry adventures and I have never had a problem. I used to have an older CamelBak than was a pain in the butt to dry, but I really like the way this one has arms that keep the bladder wide open.

You can't go wrong with this.

Its so so

Camelbak has eliminated any innovation in bladder design by court crushing the competition. The twist top works well but what ever gimmick they tell you about design keeps this bladder in "narrow" shape and distributes the water evenly really doesn't hold up. The arms around the cap/opening are suppose to help keep the bladder "propt" open to help dry out the bladder have never really worked well for me. No leak though. No mold or discoloration.

Does anyone have any experience on how...

Does anyone have any experience on how this performs under snow/cold conditions? I'm planning to utilize my backpacks pouch and go snowboarding with this reservoir. Am I better off with an insulate bladder?
Any help would be much appreciated.

Best Answer Responded on

So the biggest reason you are going to want to go with an insulated reservoir isn't because the reservoir itself will freeze up but because the hose will first and it really doesn't need to be much below freezing for that to happen quickly. You could just blow back all the water out of the hose but then you just have a lot of air in the reservoir and all your water is sloshing around. Do yourself a favor and make sure you go insulated.

Responded on

I have used uninsulated reservoirs for snowboarding before and the biggest issue is the hose freezing. You won't have any issues with the reservoir freezing but it would be a good idea to get the insulated tube to go with it. The insulated tube won't always keep it from freezing but it does help.

Under pressure..

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

Leaks under pressure. Heading out for weekend trip right now. I had my wife put her pack on to adjust the fit, and she says her back is getting wet. Pull out the bladder to check the lid, it's snug and there's droplets around the hose quick connect.

I had heard of other people having issues with the antidote leaking once pressure was applied, so I placed the bladder in the pack the night before to see if there was leakage. It didn't happen till the pack was being worn. So now I'm sitting here waiting for my wife's down sleeping bag to dry.
I've always been a fan of camelbak. But I have no faith in the new bladder.

Keeps me hydrated

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have two 100oz, or 3L reservoirs, and I love them. I have both the antiodote pictured above and the mil spec one for my thermobak. I can't say it enough, I love this product. I drink a lot when I'm out, so its nice to have 3L ready to go when I need it. I haven't had a leak yet, and afterwards they're easy to clean. The angled mouth piece works great and the shut off makes sure I don't spill any when the going get rough. I highly recommend this product.

NOT the shape depicted

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The Antiodote reservoir is NOT the elongated shape show in photos- it is shorter/wider and will not fit into older Camelpak packs that are more elongated than many of the newer models.A challenge to find a way to identify which reservoir fits into which pack.

Good investment.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great reservoir. I love the arms for drying to hold the reservoir open. The quick snap system is great for switching out the hose. This bladder has been on 20+ miles of trail so far and I'm not disappointed. Great investment.

goes everywhere!

I love my camelbak, I hear others have had problems with leaks, which on a hiking trip can be a serious problem in many ways but i've never had that problem. after several years of use i did have to replace the nozzle with one of their new(ish) ones with the yellow valve, but other than I still use it every chance I get

Great reservoir

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My wife and I each have one of these and have been using them heavily for over a year. We haven't had any issues with either reservoir - no leaks, no trouble with the cap, etc. The quick link is a nice feature, and I haven't had any issues with it jamming or leaking. The hose size fits perfectly with the outlet on our water filter (MSR) so you can refill the reservoir without having to pull it out of your pack. No issues with plastic taste or residual taste (although we usually only put water in them). The large cap makes cleaning and drying a snap

Just as it says!

Great replacement bladder. I used this to replace an old North Face bladder and this works great. Really like the valve system and the foldable arms for drying.

3L bladder!!

It is a great system. I have had zero problems with the bladder or hose with many seasons of abuse, although I seem to go through loads of bite valves. So much so that on long trips I usually take a spare.

Improved over the previous versions

This reservoir is 10x better than the old camelbak bladders. The screw lid is much more simple, making sealing the bladder with 3L of water in it an easier task. The quick link system makes threading the hose through various h2o ports of backpacks much easier that trying to shove the mouth piece through. Also, it allows you to have one bladder, but multiple hoses for different purposes. So, you can have an insulated one for winter sports, and a non insulated one for summer sports. the integrated drying system makes the bladder stay open to get airflow after washing. Point of advice, if you're not going to use your bladder for a while, empty out as much water as you can, roll it up into a gallon ziploc, and put it in the freezer. This prevents mold from growing in it. Flows nice, I always get the 3 L, even though it is heavier because i drink a lot. Definitely makes me drink more than a standard water bottle. I will always have one of these.

Quick Link system too easy to break

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

I've owned two of these and under less than a year after buying them the Quick Link system broke while in my skiing backpack so all of my extra clothes/ down jacket got soaking wet. Yes, this happened twice! Just purchased the Osprey Packs Hydraulics, hope this will last me longer than the Camelbaks.

Great Reservoir Bladder

This is a great reservoir with an easy to use design. Works great in my Black Diamond Nitro backpack. Flows great, is easy to maintain and clean with the removable tube, and it never got any plastic taste after sitting in there for a long period time in the heat like I expected it might.
