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.

Leaky quick connect

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have a perma-wet-butt with this bladder. The quick connect leaks all the time... I like the feature but is not worth it. Going to replace with the MSR version and give that a try.

Top Quality

Doesn't get much better than camelbak for bladder functionality and durability. Camelback happily stands behind their quality with a lifetime warranty as well, but I'll doubt you'll need that.

The best there is.

These bladders are unbeatable. I've had multiples in different sizes, and never had a problem. Cant go wrong.

bad luck with a great design?

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've been using Camelbak reservoirs on and off for the past 6-7 years. They are always great ideas in theory -- superlight, collapsible, accessible, but something always seems to go wrong. My last camelbak started leaking and got real moldy and eventually had to throw it out after just a year of service, and I decided not to buy one again for the next 3 years. I got this one, seeing all the good reviews, and when it arrived, was amazed at all the innovations Camelbak had put into place in this base model -- easily removable hose making cleaning easy; a built-in stand to improve air drying.

But somehow, less than a week into service, it was leaking! I found a tiny nick in the reservoir bag near the hard plastic ring; and despite my efforts with duct tape to seal it up during the remainder of a 3-week long climbing/backpacking trip, it still kept leaking. I kept the bag in its rightful little reservoir pouch in my backpack the entire time, so I'm not really sure what happened. I'm willing to try again with this; but I just can't seem to get one.

Fantastic Design

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is the Cadillac of hydration bladders. Hose is perfect length; not too long as are many. Mouthpiece stays watertight when closed, but easily opens. Large opening allows for easy refill and also use with UV Pen. Hose removes and bladder seals allowing easy filling and replacement without having to take hose out of pack. I use this in my ski pack, hiking pack, and backpacking pack. Fits all sizes.

Why not go with the 3L?!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I figure that if I don't need more than one or two liters and don't want the added weight, I just use the fill marks to put in one or two. The marks are also great for determining how much you have drank. Keeping track of your water consumption is pretty important when you're a long ways from a refill! No leaks! The quick disconnect is great. Doesn't make the pack feel bulky. People keep saying they are sticking to the trusty Nalgene, which is fine, but then you have to keep stopping to get water! I have been using Camelbak bladders for fourteen years and have only had one issue. I had a Bite-valve come apart once.

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

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

John,
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.

Responded on

I personally always go with the 3L. Just because you have the capacity to carry 3L of water, that doesn't mean you have to fill it all the way up. Most of the time I only put 1.5L in my 3L bladder, and I have the capacity to put more in if I am going to need more water and not have to worry about swapping out different size bladders. 3L all the way!

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.

Responded on

I like the insulated tube in the summer to because it helps to keep the water from not warming up as much in the hose. No matter the conditions I always blow the water back into the bladder to keep it all the same temperature, but I also love the insulated hose because of the mouthpiece cap that comes with it. It stays on better than the Blue cap you can buy separate and it keeps your mouthpiece clean from dirt and other debris.

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.
