Génial... manque juste un capuchon
Le réservoir est de qualité, aimant bien pensé et pratique, facile à glisser dans mon Tempest 30 ou Fairviewtrek 50... MAIS il manque vraiment un capuchon pour laisser l’embout au propre!
This is another part of my Osprey family. A great reservoir just the perfect size for my longest walks in summer and will give me more than enough for a winter walk, although I’ll probably switch to a smaller res. I love how it will sit in my Osprey’s pack and I can surround it with ice packs to keep it cool enough long enough.
It Works OK for my needs. It takes a while to eliminate initial plastic taste, but finally I have almost got it. I would appreciate a harder back surface. it could help to install the reservoir into the pack. Great quality materials, extremelly good design and powerfull magnet makes it a very good hidratation device.
This 2.5L Reservoir unit works really well for long (and short) trekking days. It is easy to fill and fitted well into my Osprey backpack. The tube is long enough to fit through the backpack and to the front of the shoulder pads. It clips comfortably and securely onto the front of the pack with the use of the magnet. Initially there was a slight plastic taste to the water but this disappeared as I used the pack on a regular basis. I found the bite valve easy to use and I highly recommend the use of the cover too. The cover offers some hygiene protection when trekking through areas that are dusty and potentially not all that clean. I highly recommend the use of this Reservoir System.
I have the smaller Hydraulics™ LT 1.5L Reservoir but after using it a couple of times I came to the conclusion that a bigger one is needed so I bought this one. I works really great and the hose has good length and the reservoir it's easy to fill and clean and the water keeps the original taste. I also bought the Bite valve cover so I recommend buying that alongside the Hydraulics™ LT 2.5L Reservoir.
I really like the product so I do recommend it!
Better than camelback
Replaced old camelback reservoir in my cycle pack with this one, much better. Easier to fill. Fits my old pack though lack of hook on top means a tie fix has to be used. Like the locking valve on the bite valve stopping leakage (an issue I had with other make). Ideal for cycling in recent hot spell and I found the hose just right length(any longer would have a been a problem).
I was concerned about getting a reservoir because so many people had told me that they gave the water a bad plastic flavor. The Osprey reservoirs do not change the taste of the water, which is really important to me. They fit well into Osprey packs, and are easy to use.
Very nice but slightly hosed
I really like the bladder. However I do not like the (short) length of the hose. The bladder is expensive enough to add an other 20-30cm extra hose I'd imagine.
The thing is, I do not want the quick connect to be inside my backpack. It has very little bonus having it in your backpack, having it just outside the backpack makes it just as easy to take it out. However when you use a gravity system or simply want to refill the bladder while in your backpack, you will be forced to open the backpack and run the risk of leaking inside your backpack.
I got a spare hose and have the quick connect just outside the backpack, making the bladder easy to refill and zero risk of the quick connect leaking inside my backpack.
A good product but a minor re-design and a bite-valve cover are needed
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.
Hydraulics™ LT 2.5L Reservoir
great value for money. Very easy to clean. Does not drip or leak after using. Fits nicely either in backpack or outside in pouch's.
would highly recommend.
