Clean tasting water from day one is a big plus, compared to other water bladders we have tried. Valve on the bite valve is a bit fiddly to use. Overall we would recommend this product.
Well constructed, no leaks and easy to fill and empty. Worked well in a half-empty pack, but didn't work at all when used with a fully laden backpack. The pack contents had pressed on the release button for the hose at the entry point to the bladder. It seals itself and didn't leak, fortunately. It should be possible to work around this with careful packing, but it was frustrating and took a while to work out why it wouldn't function. There's a strong plastic taste, if water stands in it for a few hours.
This bladder is superb. My sister has one and so she recommended the Platypus as what she thinks is the best around. I bought it and have used it several times for day long hikes in the Brecon Beacons. Great quality bladder, with "snap on/off" hose connection. There is no "plasticky" taste either.mif you want a 2 litre water bladder then your search ends here.
