I bought this as a long haul riding option for when my Camelbak Chase vest’s 1.5L of water is not sufficient. Good ideas here, but are unrefined and nowhere near worth the price of admission. I would have given 3 stars if priced at </= $130. At $180 for a piece of kit, I expect refinement. Pros: Snug fitting vest stays fairly well in place. Chest strap clasps are secure and well thought out. Storage, and 3 liters of water! Back protection if you’re into that sort of thing, and removable if you’re not (it’s quite a HEAVY piece of foam). Seemingly high quality zippers. Cons: Ever tried drinking water through a coffee stirrer? Water hose on this thing is microscopic, and the bite valve is garbage. It leaks constantly, and the rubber outer portion falls easily off of the plastic core. I assume this is why they put the ridiculous plastic cap on there, which is not removable without cutting and just dangles off the end of the hose bouncing around on your chest if not put in place (I actively hydrate when climbing, so this has to stay off). Not a big deal to me, but the in-bladder zipper (ziplock style) to reduce volume is pretty difficult to use. Pack to back ventilation is not great. In conclusion: Buy a Camelback Chase, and learn to drink less. ***Update*** After a month, I have officially put this thing through the wringer. I discovered that the hydration hose uses the same attachment mechanism as Camelbak, so that problem was solved by replacing the OEM garbage with a spare that I had on hand. The "reflective liner" in the bag has now begun to disintegrate, so that is the new big complaint. This is a trash bag, and would call it grossly overpriced at $50.

I just bought this. Does it come with the bladder or do I need to buy that desperately?

Hey John, This pack doesn't not come with an included hydration bladder. The backpack itself is compatible with up to 3L bladders.
