Comments about Osprey 3 LITER HYDRAULICS™ RESERVOIR:

I needed a new bladder and was surprised to see the is new system from Osprey. Their previous model was my fav I've had so far (out of 6-7). I purchased this for two reasons (other than I lost my previous one). 1. The "All mighty Guarantee" and 2. just how not sexy the camelbak systems next to them were.
I gave this three stars for now. I have done one hike with it so far (BTW this new model fits perfectly into my four year old Raptor 14). Like another reviewer, I prefer the bite valve at 90 degrees as opposed to this 45 degree one. I also prefer the magnet placement on the older model. The zip-lock style of this bladder seems highly questionable to me. I forsee it being the Achilles heel of the whole thing. The only better aspect of this one is that it has gotta be lighter.
I will click "Yes, recommend to a friend" because I've had good luck with Osprey products and I believe, even if faulty, they will make it right. They wouldn't likely put heir name on it and offer the Guarantee if found faulty. We'll see!

      Comments about Osprey 3 LITER HYDRAULICS™ RESERVOIR:

      Worked perfectly on a hiking trip in the Andes of Peru I just completed. I couldn't be more pleased. Easy to fill and no leaks. I love the design. Drying it out at the end of a trip is as easy as using a wad of paper towel to keep the large mouth open. I hung mine right side up and it dried out quickly. I expect it will last a long time. If I ever need another reservoir I will replace it with this same model. I am out of superlatives....

      Comments about Osprey 3 LITER HYDRAULICS™ RESERVOIR:

      Just got tested this today after getting a new pack as a warranty replacement. This is my third generation of Osprey's aqua bladder which started with the Nalgene one. I kind of like the zipper top for filling, it seems like a clever design but will take a few uses to get used to. Two things that I immediately do not like. 1) The angled mouth piece makes it impossible for hands free use on a bike. 2) There is no loop on the bottom of the bladder to hang dry overnight. I use my pack almost daily and usually hang the bladder next to the pack to drip dry between uses. Removing the loop that was on previous versions seems like an unnecessary oversight.

        Comments about Osprey 3 LITER HYDRAULICS™ RESERVOIR:

        This reservoir was easy to figure out. You remove the slide and open the top like a bag of chips opens. I don't understand where "Mtb Bear" had the confusion. I love how the bladder has the hard back. I almost forget it's in my pack.

            Comments about Osprey 3 LITER HYDRAULICS™ RESERVOIR:

            Totally not user friendly as I can't figure out how to get water in the resevoir!!! normally I have no problems figuring out gear instructions or not. This is really annoying to say the least as my last pack got stolen before this road trip so I just grabbed an osprey pack on my way out of town. Fully regret the purchase now as I can't get water for my ride!
