Not too much to say here. It's a hydration bladder, and a simple one at that. 3L is a great size to have for long trips, or at any other time for those like me who get thirsty quickly. On the positive side of things, the opening to the bladder is wide enough to clean easily, and it seals very securely. However, the tube isnt the easiest to keep clean, and the mouthpiece can leak if it's accidentally pressed open. But for this price, its a great deal.

I bought 2 of these for bringing on longer warmer weather backpacking trips instead of my 2 liter. They fill up the packs better and are as easy and simple as any other camelbak bladder. Will be all you expect if you like the brand.

The water reservoir holds a great amount! I enjoy not having to carry around water bottles for hiking. However, some of the newer water reservoirs have a back-bone to help the pack stay up and keeping the water from slouching in the bag. The backbone also makes it easier to slide in and out of the pack.

This reservoir works exactly as well as you'd think it would work. It's large and fits awckwardly into my old backpack, but I knew that was going to happen before I bought it and the high capacity is what I wanted. I wish the hook on top is larger, but not a real issue. Easy to clean, stick my hand in right up to my elbow. Can be a little difficult to open after filling and sticking it in the fridge for over-night (I like to add some ice right before I take off), but that just means it had an excellent seal.
