I am used to using hydration packs for hikes, and I recently purchased a kid carrier that was designed for a reservoir, but didn't come with one, and after purchasing this same product (in a smaller size for another pack of mine), I knew this would be what I was looking for. The quality of the prod...

I've had a smaller Omega reservoir since about 2009. This one seems to be an even earlier model, as the packaging has 2005 copyright information and the details of the product are a bit different. The material is smooth instead of slightly bumpy, the bond between the pouch and the black filling port is a bit different, the tube is stiffer (maybe a wee bit heavier?), there is no valve. So this reservoir has been sitting in some warehouse for 5-10 years I guess. CamelBak has a great warranty on all their products so don't let this dissuade you from getting a great deal on a great reservoir. I was just surprised that this one was so different.

after many years of service, my last 3-Liter CamelBak sprang a leak and I wanted the old-style like some other reviewers. the price was great and the bladder so far has performed ok. My problem is with the hose which crimps too easily and cuts off my water flow. I finally replaced it with the hose from my old reservoir which seems heavier and has an inner liner. the reservoir itself is thinner and smooth surfaced where my last Omega had a pebbled texture.
hope the anti-bacterial treatment applies to this model.
I'm not familiar with the Hydrapak sizing wise, but I can tell you that just this weekend I pulled it out of my 40L pack and put it in a regular sized backpack and it worked like a charm.

These bladders are 100 oz. If your previous bladder was 100 oz you should have no problem.

The size of this reservoir is approximately 18" tall by 8" wide. Being flexible, the bag can adjusted to fit many other packs. The tube is over 38" long which helps to fit different pack sizes.

Yes, it fits in my old Camelback (larger daypack) and my other old (smaller, and I don't remember the brand) hydration pack. It is a tight fit in the smaller pack but works just fine as long as you don't kink the hose. I am not familiar with hydrapak (Ammo). You might want to put the reservoir in the pack before filling it with water.

Take measurements then compare the measurements with this replacement reservoir... I have the Mule CamelBak which is an older model and this replacement did not fit, I did not take measurements just assumed because it was CamelBak it would fit!
if the price is right, you might be happy with this replacement and just make it work? This replacement is a top quality hydration reservoir!

The CamelBak Omega Reservoir will fit hydration back packs that are designed to fit long, narrow bladders that hold 100 ounces. There are some some that are designed to hold 32 ounce and 70 ounce bladders that are shorter so you will need to make sure there is enough room for the 17.5 inc x 7 inch dimension.
