Great article – Durable Water Bladder Bag with Straws (3-Litre) Reviews

posted by Briefer on 12/12/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Received some months ago, for using it during a two weeks trek in Nepal.
When I received it, it left some plastic taste in the water, that went away after a couple a washing with mint mouthwash :)
During the trip the performance of the bag was great. It resisted even some scratches when I carried in the outside of my backpack.
The holes allow an easy way of fixing it, but in the end I felt confident to carry the bag inside my backpack.
The straw can be fixed (depending of your backpack) for drinking while walking.
Cons:
None. Just be careful to properly close the filling screw top, and you can forget about leaks.
Other:
Capacity is huge, filling it with its full capacity will add too much weight to your backpack and unnecessary stress to the bag.
I only recommend filling it fully i.e. for taking a shower.
Bottomline:
Great product. If you need a cheap alternative to an original camelbak for a tenth of its price, this is the right product.
