Great Product

First time using a reservoir while hiking and it made a huge difference in keeping me hydrated. The 3 liter lasted all day (12 hour hike with a 40lb pack).

Lumbar bladders should be the norm, so much better to carry that weight on your hips. IMHO they are more comfortable than bladders that ride high on the back. This bladder is a little wide, so it may not fit in narrow packs. I don't think the new angled bite valve is an improvement, just another gimmick. The new handle does aid in filling, but it also is just another thing to get tangled up on when trying to wrestle it into a pack. The removable tube may be a plus for some, but I would rather...

The removable tube may be a plus for some, but I would rather see a less expensive version of this bladder without the "new improvements". My old bandito bladder lasted for over 20 yrs. Time will tell if this one is as good.

I purchased this water reservoir for my Badlands backpack because the Badlands 3L reservoir was not available on their website. This is the first water reservoir I have ever used, but thought I should definitely get one since I was going to be in the field every day for over a week. The only time I ever had any leaks with this reservoir were when I was not careful to install the fill cover properly. I noticed the leak immediately when up-righting the reservoir, loosened then re-threaded the fill cover, and no more leaking. The reservoir performed perfectly, and the volume of water per sip was excellent. The only negative criticism I have is the soft hose could be easily cut or torn while walking through heavy brush, but I see an insulated tube is offered, so I expect that would solve that problem, and would also keep the water from freezing in colder weather.

 

Works Great for Me

This Lumbar 3L Reservoir came in the CamelBak Sundowner that I bought a year and a half ago in preparation for a one-day Grand Canyon South to North Rim to Rim hike. Since then I've also used it this spring for a one-day Grand Canyon Rim to River to Rim hike. I like how the reservoir fits low on my back in the Sundowner, and the water stays relatively cold. I've never had a problem closing the lid tightly. For me, it's been a great reservoir, keeping me well-hydrated during training and Grand Canyon hikes. I especially like how easy it is to drink from the tube.

 

Perfect for getting around

I bought a pack with the reservoir. It has never given me a problem over the 6 months I've had it. Really like where the water weight sits as opposed to along the back. Never leaked yet.
