Rated 4 out of 5 by Weswood Just what I needed
I bought this to fit inside a tactical paintball vest's hydration pocket, and it performed to my expectations. It was somewhat difficult to get a steady stream of water flow at first, but once I figured out the best positioning, it worked well. Water does not taste like plastic and it works as advertised.

Rated 4 out of 5 by misspriss Great reservoir
This reservoir worked great for hiking a tough 14er. I threw in my pack along with many other items and there was no leakage. It cost less than other models and worked great. The only reason I gave four stars instead of five is because the nozzle is sort of small. It's really not a big deal though.

I love this hydro system. It's easy to clean, fill, and so far the mouth price doesn't drip all over the place. I would definitely recommend this product to everybody I know.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Michael 3 liters Water Reservoir
I never use this before and I will use it when getting ready for hiking out in mountain for backpack. I believe it worth to carry it cuz I been drinking a lot of water everyday so hopefully this be enough for me to drink this also I bought other extra 2 liters in case behind me in need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dreidel13 Happy I bought this!
This is a great product to add to a hydratiion system. The price is very competetive with other products along the same lines while maintaining the quality needed. It is strong and has been sandwhiched in my backpack often. Drawbacks could include clean-ability? The opening is small for cleaning tools. If it is not upright with the opening at the bottom you will seal ait when drinking. Also, color options on the hoses would be nice. I use mine hunting by the way.

I love this hydration pack. The price isn't bad and the pack is very durable. I was able to fit two of these in my backpack because I was able to move them around and squish it where I needed to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jbone Excellent product
Easy to pack and can easily be contorted to fit empty pack space, unlike a hard bottle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RT Love my monotreme!
Recently purchased this for a hike to Mt. Mitchell, NC. It was a perfect fit in my Kelty Redwing. I filled it up right out of the packaging with none of the expected "plastic" taste you get with other bladders...no leaks, less bulky than the dromedary competitor. Bite valve clip snap malfunctioned but otherwise this is a great bladder.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Colorado Sarah Gets the job done
I've used just about every brand and model of hydration pack. This item gets the job done. It's easy to use (fill / empty) and I really like the integrated hanging hook for drying. My only concern is durability. I've long been a fan of the MSR dromedary for durability reasons. I'm a bit worried about taking the Platypus Hoser on backpack trips because a torn hydration bag in the backcountry could be a very, very bad thing.
