  • Good quality water bag

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Look sturdy and well built
    - Come disassembled (backpack, tube and water bag were seperate packing) but very easy to assemble together.
    - Tested water bag and no leakage at all.
    - Got a deep pocket at the back where you can put your personal stuffs (pocket is as deep as the length of the backpack)
    - Adjustable belt/straps to tighten the bag right to your body so it won't swing around.
    - very long drinking tube, excellent and perfect for positioning the tube to the right and convenience place for easy grab (ie. riding bicycle)
    - got lots of D-ring on the backpack itself and on the shoulder straps, good for hooking things on it.
    - got buckles on the bottom of the shoulder straps so you can unbuckle it and drop it if you in some emergency situation to loose some weight quick.

    Cons:

    - Bite valve wasn't cut/slit, not a big deal, I easily slit open the valve opening with a sharp exacto knife
    - Bite valve doesn't have a attach ring to the pull out mouth piece as shown in the picture, if you need to take out the bite valve and drink through the opening, there is a chance to loose or drop the bite valve.
    - A tiny little bit of plastic smell with water but I'm sure with couple wash out cycle the smell will be gone in no time.
    - Small water fill hole, thus it will be slightly difficult to clean the inside of the waterbag

    OtherThoughts:

    Looks very similar to Camelbak.
    Don't know DX sell replacement waterbag just in case the one comes with this is damage down the road.

    Bottomline:

    It's a very nice water backpack. Can't beat the price ! With the money I save I can live with all the cons that I listed above.
