"Completely flawed redesign" (Posted on 31/07/2016)

Piotr

I purchased a Hydraulics LT 2.5L Reservoir in April to replace the original 3L Osprey reservoir that came with my 2 year old Osprey Viper 13 Hydration Pack.

While I loved the original reservoir, the new reservoir has been a disaster.

Shortly after purchase, the bite valve developed a crack, causing it to leak constantly. I replaced this with an old style bite valve that I managed to source from my local outdoor store, which is far superior in design and quality.

Subsequently, the pack was rendered completely useless after developing a heavy leak in the corner of the Slide-seal top opening, causing it to drench my bag and my back on a recent bike ride.

What's more, the QuickConnect hose has been nothing but trouble, disconnecting spontaneously whist in the bag, causing me to almost lose the top end of the hose on several occasions.

The whole construction of the reservoir also feels very unsturdy compared to the original due to a lack of a spine.

Whilst I've been a fan of Osprey for a long time, I've been left throughly disappointed by the redesign of the Osprey hydration reservoir range and it seems to me that the main objective of the redesign was cost-saving, not improvement. I hope that the issues gets addressed promptly.

Hello Piotr,

Sorry that you have had these issues with your hydraulics reservoir, we do have our no leak hydraulics guarantee which covers all manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship for the lifetime of the product. 

As for your design feedback we do have 2 different hydraulics reservoirs, the hydraulics LT which doesn't have a hard plastic spine to keep the weight down but does have welded chevrons to provide support and prevent sloshing and the hydraulics reservoir which has the hard spine to support the reservoir in the pack, similar to the original one that would have come with your pack. 

I would suggest that you get in touch with our guarentee team to see what we are able to do for you, you can do this by filling out this Form

I hope that your issue get resolved. 

 

 

"A good product but a minor re-design and a bite-valve cover are needed" (Posted on 11/06/2016)

I've used a Platypus "Hoser" system in the past so treated myself to the Osprey equivalent when I bought the new Exos 58 rucsack for the 250 km Stevenson Way in France. At first I didn't like it much. It was often awkward to fill and I was very unhappy when, after about 3 days, the flimsy plastic hook that it hangs from in the rucsack snapped off. Fortunately it was easily replaced with a short loop of cord which proved to be a much better method than the original. After that it was fine, much better than stopping to get a bottle out of a rucsack pocket - and it keeps your water cooler being inside your rucsack.

I bought this new reservoir after my Source bladder began to leak. Compared to the Source, I like Hydrapak's Blaster bite valve which has a higher flow-rate and the better placement of the Quick Connect valve. The Slide-Seal top works well too. Despite the fact that Hydrapak manufacture a great dust cover specifically for the Blaster valves that they sell, Osprey marketing have decided to pennypinch and not include it. Even worse, as at the end of April 2016, Osprey do not even sell the Blaster bite valve cover as a separate item - you have to buy a complete replacement Blaster valve & cover from another company. Whilst the magnet should hold the valve out of the mud, they are not infallible and offer no protection to contamination from wind borne dust..

Hi Michael,

Thanks for your feedback. The Blaster bite valve cover will be released in the Summer as an accessory. We hope to have it available on our website soon.
