Hydraulics™ 2L Reservoir

Providing maximum levels of stability and ease of use, the Hydraulics™ reservoir is essential for keeping hydrated on your outdoor adventures. The unique combination of the pour shield and Slide-Seal™ top-opening allows you to easily fill and empty the reservoir, whilst enabling complete access for cleaning after use. Our unique Osprey Hydraulics™ anatomically shaped back plate provides stability and creates a flat profile to ensure the reservoir easily slides in and out of your pack. The bite valve is magnetic enabling easy stow and access to water on the go. When not in use the bite valve also incorporates an easy on/off twist lock system. Built from strong yet light TPU material, which is designed to withstand either freezing or hot water. The QuickConnect™ system allows you to remove the reservoir for easier loading, replacement and cleaning.

*Magnets may cause compass deviation. Always keep your compass and magnetic bite-valve separate.

Reservoir
Used for the first time and like other comments it does have a slight plastic taste but I am sure it will wear off in time.
I found that if the water is really cold when it goes in it keeps cold for quite a long time and helps to keep the plastic taste away.
Having water no matter what it tastes like to preferably to having none, especially on a long hike
Frank
Good quality product with great features
I only used a few times so far, so its durability is something that still has to prove itself.
The magnetic clip is a great quality of life upgrade. The mouthpiece no longer swings around but still is readily available, great feature.
Relatively easy to dry after use. The quick release of the tube makes refilling and cleaning easy by not having to mess with undoing the tube from your backpack.
Delivery was one day late, whether it was Ospray or DHL that dropped the ball, I don't know
Markus
Good thing!
I've already used the reservoir a few times and it really does what it should. It even fits in my 18l - backpack. The only negative thing is, that the water still tastes of the plastic.
Osprey Customer Service, 

Hi Markus,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on the Hydraulics Reservoir 2L.

It is great to hear that you have been pleased with your reservoir, and that it comfortably fits inside your 18L pack. 

To remove the plastic like taste, we recommend you freeze your pack overnight with a solution of water and lemon juice.

Regards,

Osprey Customer Service

The taste of the water is unbearable.
I have had 6 long outings now, have done a couple of major washouts of the sack and the plastic/chemical taste of the water is still unbearable and I will normally drink anything. The workings/fittings on this sack could be a lot simpler. I bought it because I wanted the firm plate on the back to keep it sort of upright as I don't have anything on my daypack to hook it on. Any suggestions (other than orange cordial) to get rid of the taste?

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on the Hydraulics 2L Reservoir.

We are sorry to hear that you have found the taste from your reservoir to be unpleasant. To resolve this issue, we recommend that you freeze your reservoir overnight with a solution of water and lemon juice, once defrosted this should remove the taste from the reservoir.

This is an easy way of carrying water on a long hile. It seems well made though tastes a little of the new plastic. I expect that will disappear with a few uses.
Elizabeth
I wish I'd got it sooner
I had the previous screw cap Osprey reservoir and had no end of problems with it, it leaked constantly, wouldn't shut and caused so much frustration.
I was a bit reticent to get another Osprey reservoir, but the reviews were great and I'm very impressed with my Osprey rucksack so I did, and i'm so glad!
The reservoir is great, easy to fill, empty, and clean, no leakage problems and makes hiking with a reservoir a real pleasure.

Worked well - perfect extra for a Talon 11
Bought this for some long hikes in Greece this year on the advice of someone who told me that a water bladder makes life a bit easier on long walks. I was a bit wary of the slide lock system as it seemed a bit weird but found it did indeed make filling, emptying and cleaning easy and so far it hasn’t leaked a bit. You need to read the instructions on this as getting working for the first time is a bit weird – fresh from the box it was hard to figure out without a read of the instructions !!! I went for the 2 Litre bladder as that’s the max my Talon 11 can take and found that about right for the walks I was taking – I tended to carry a few spare bottles of water as well for rest stops.
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.
