MSR Hydromedary 2 litre

This hydration system sports a bright red Cordura bladder with a large screw cap for filling along with reinforced hanging loops. The bite value can be locked closed to prevent leaks (and there were no leaks in our tests). But though the water taste was okay, there was a hint of antiseptic about the taste. You can’t see if there is any mould in the bladder, and the opening is not large enough to easily clean the bladder either. It has a high price tag too.
