Arrived on time. Is a brand new bladder for the CamelBak. If you like CamelBak products, you'll like this. Yes, after a while they get a moldy taste, but that's why I'm replacing mine at the very affordable price STP offers. No complaints. It's all good. Thanks!

First of all- use a coupon, and this is a STEAL. I appreciate camelbak's quality and details over cheaper competitors.
But I do want to mention that the 70 oz is NOT what is in the picture (smaller, shorter, wider)- I am not sure if the picture is a different style, but I think it is just a smaller bladder. The 70's that we got appear much longer and narrower. However, we were still able to fit them in the hydration pocket of our kids' backpacks (REI tarn 18- they are for younger kids, our kids are 5 and 7). We didn't totally "max out" the bladder, but we weren't going on 12 hour hikes away from water, so to be able to put over a quart of water+ice in each of them was plenty.
Also, the bite valve doesn't have a lid or way to shut it off (is that something you buy extra??Before that also came with it. . . .). That means it leaks a little bit unless tucked upwards, and when not in use but still full of water, make sure it isn't somewhere where the valve will get squished or else it will leak all over! Traveling with 3 little kids means we just had to pay a little extra attention to this, but we never had nay major leak problems. We let our kids use their hydration pack instead of a water bottle while we are driving. One less thing to pack for the road.
Overall, I highly recommend! You can never have two many of these laying around :)

Works great as a hydration insert in our packs...but had to go on YouTube to figure out how to clean...and more importantly DRY it out effectively to avoid any potential mold growth...There were no instructions...so went on YouTube. It's a bit of a project...but doable...and at half price, can't complain.

I should have paid closer attention to the specs. I bought this to fit my daughters smaller hydration pack thinking it's the model in the picture. It's not. You receive the long narrow, old style version. Doesn't fit in the pack. Another spare, I'll keep shopping. Just wish STP would put forth the effort. It's not like there aren't a million photos of the old style available for the description.

Sorry but was gone for the fourth. it measures 16x6 1/2 in. I freeze mine all the time. i fill about 1/3 full with water and blow in air and lay on its back so the hose connection and opening remain ice free
