Does the job... high quality materials

This reservoir has been working flawlessly with my Osprey Karve 16. In the beginning there was a strong plastic taste, but it's going away, after a few uses but it's still there. I haven't had any problems with the bite valve freezing so far, but I haven't used it in temperatures much lower than 30F. Maybe 20F was the coldest I've used it. 2L is enough for a day skiing in the resort, I usually won't drink all the water. Osprey has changed the design this year, the materials are different but still look like it's on par with Osprey quality.
