"Worked well - perfect extra for a Talon 11" (Posted on 10/09/2016)
The bladder made the water taste a bit plasticky at first but after some diluted orange juice was used the plastic taste seemed to go away after a couple of refills. I did try adding some lemon juice to take the plastic taste out but it didn’t seem to work too well. The orange cordial solved the taste issue after a few refills.
The magnetic clip and harness attachment with it was really useful as well and kept the mouthpiece in a good position. I found it a real help as I do tend to get a bit reluctant to stop for breaks when walking and can end up pretty dehydrated. Being able to just take a few sips without having to mess about with water bottles made life a lot easier.
Great bit of kit and I was well pleased with the way it worked and it fitted into the Talon II perfectly making carrying water a lot easier and more comfortable and freeing up bag space for other items.
Wish they had included a cover for the mouthpiece for when you take the pack off as otherwise it tends to dangle on the floor – I just bought some extra harness magnetic attachments to put on the Talon pack load lifter straps so when I take the pack off I can clip the mouthpiece to the load lifter straps and keep it off the deck. It’s a minor quibble and few bits of kit are ever perfect – this is as good as I need it to be.
Worked great and I would buy another if I needed to replace it.
