Hydration Bladder - 3L is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad but... ...I actually prefer the bite valve on my old Camelbak better! This one has to be uncapped, then pulled, before you can suck any water out of it. If you're using it for running, like I do, then it can be a hassle. It's even more of a pain to put the cap back on because it tends to spin around the valve (it's attached with line) as you run! Also, tightening the bladder cap must be done while you're fully awake as the retainer ring has to be flush with the bladder so there are enough threads for the cap to purchase. Sooo, while this thing may be mil-spec and the bladder of choice among snake eaters everywhere, it's certainly not perfect...perhaps the makers could revisit Camelbak to address the ease-of-use shortcomings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bladder for all things outdoor I bought this to use in a GoRuck Tough event. It held up superbly and has been used in many other applications from hiking to long runs and walks with the dog. The materials and ability to break it down make for a much easier cleaning than say a Camelbak bladder and it is more tear resistant. I may have happened onto this product but I am so glad I did as it is the best bladder we have used in all our years of outdoor activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid bladder choice Works great. Mine came with a little pressure point in the side but it doesn't leak and doesn't appear to be a problematic weak point so we're good. The little cord that "attaches" the top clip to the back broke the very first time I slid the clip off. I didn't even use excessive force I thought, the clip sticks a bit when it's new. Not a problem though, it's better this way. I just leave the top clip and the hose attached to my Bullet ruck and take the bladder out to refill. I do wish they gave you the option of the black hose or a transparent one but that's a minor thing. Solid hydration system, same one I was issued in the Marines. Make sure you backflush the hose with air if it's going to sit for a while, and clean your bladder every now and then. Also, drain the hose before you unclip it from the bladder to refill...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hydration Bladder Available I used this for the first time for my ruck up the Poo Poo Point Trail (Issaquah, Wa). 3L seems to be the perfect amount of water, I was drinking pretty liberally and still had water left after the hike. The dust cap is great for keeping the nozzle clean, and I really like the push/pull lock on the nozzle instead of having to bite the nozzle like a CamelBak. Making the nozzle and hose removable is another great feature. I even got a few compliments and people asking me where I got this bladder (I of course told them about Goruck.)
