A Great Improvement
This new model of the Camelbak reservoir is far better than the previous models. I even experimented with platypus after having been dissapointed in the lack of new innovation in camelbak. However, this reservoir is a huge improvement, in fact they solved all the problems that I have had with previous reservoirs. The number one improvement is the detachable hose; when backpacking, taking the hose out along with the reservoir is a huge hassle. Camelbak has ingeniusly fixed this problem with a release valve. Another great improvement is the simple baffle to ensure that the reservoir is not overfilled, and that it can fit in the small reservoir pocket in ones backpack. Overall this has become the perfect reservoir.
