CamelBak is a well-proven hydration system brand, so not surprisingly this unit breezed through our taste test and leak test without any problems. There’s an antimicrobial Hydroguard treatment that eliminates up to 99% of bacteria and fungus, with a taste-free PureFlow liner to keep the water drinkable. The large screw cap allows easy filling, and you get strong suspension holes to allow the bladder to stay upright in your rucksack. But the bite valve cannot be locked closed, so if it is squeezed by accident it tends to leak. Some other reservoirs have larger openings for easier cleaning too.
Materials: Hydrotanium reservoir, PVC tubing
Capacity: 2 litres
Made in Mexico
Stores in UK: 3500
Verdict: Buy it if you want great-tasting water and good general performance hydration system.
