So many bad reviews and no response from Osprey. Strange. I see many bad reviews about the hanging clip breaking. They must have redesigned it since then. There is no clip now just a hole for the webbing to go through. This should be unbreakable now.

So far I have not used this reservoir outside the house. I have filled it a few times to reduce the plastic taste. It seems to be pretty well made. It doesn't leak.

Have had to replace twice so far

The design of the bladder makes it easy to fill, but the plastic hangar is weak and I have had to replace it twice because it keeps breaking.

      this bladder is the most difficult to fill & empty then I have ever had. Stiff & awkward to open, not easy to drain the hose. I am very disappointed. Do NOT purchase this

        Comments about Osprey 2.5 LITER HYDRAULICS™ LT RESERVOIR:

        So I bought a osprey backpack that came with this water pouch. At first everything worked great! No leaking or leaking of the hose. Then after about a month of use the top part of the bag that clips in broke. Then the quick release connect for the hose CONSTANTLY comes apart, not even duct tape held it together. It's gotten to the point where almost every 5 minutes I have to stop and re adjust it. I payed a lot for my backpack which is a good product but this bladder was clearly made cheaply. Would NOT recommend buying it.

        Not the Best Product Ever

        • What is with the zipper hanger?

          Comments about Osprey 2.5 LITER HYDRAULICS™ LT RESERVOIR:

          I received a replacement Hydraulics Reservoir from one that came with a pack I purchased a couple years ago. The moment I took the new reservoir out of the box I thought to myself, "What the heck is this?" I've loved everything that I have ever used from Osprey until I gave this new Hydraulics LT Reservoir a try. It feels chintzy, but with all new things you have to give them a try before making an assumption.The reservoir is floppy and there is no support when sliding it into either of my packs. It feels like the material can tear easily, and I have no idea how long the plastic hanger will last. I've been thinking of taping the sides so it doesn't move while I'm active. I also have trouble opening the bite value without using two hands. The new design will be great for cleaning the inside, but that's about it. After one use I don't trust this product.

                I love Osprey products; I have five packs of varying sizes and uses. I used this product with a Stratos 32 and an Aether 70. In both instances, the quick connect disconnected repeated with normal loading, packing and hiking. I'll go back to my 1 liter bottles and return to the retailer. What a disappointment.

                    I really like how easy it is to fill water using the slide. That said, if your bag doesn't have a pouch to take on some of the load of the reservoir and only has the loop to hold it up, it will break! I probably logged less than 30 miles of day hikes with the 2.5L that came with the Manta AG 36, and the plastic hanger already broke. That said, I'm going to keep using it without the hanger to see how necessary it is (maybe it's a weight distribution thing?).

                        I really like the bladder, it's light and the material seems to be durable.
                        However, the bite valve is a different story... It cracked all the way around within a week and now leaks whenever I use it.
                        They are sending me a new one and it should be here in a week or two.
                        Apparently this is a problem they have been having often, hopefully they'll come up with a better design soon!

                            Bought one of these when it first came out. After a 45 minute walk to a crag, it had leaked and soaked all my gear. Returned it and tried a second one. This leaked from the same spot (where the red handle is sealed to the bladder). I won't be trying a third time.
