I've used this bladder for a year now in every season under every condition. It's price is relatively low when compared to similar products however the bladder's quality isn't compromised. It's tough, easy to clean and dries quickly allowing for funk free taste every time. I like the hard plastic loop at the top of the bladder. It comes in handy for storage or camp use. I would recommend it to friends and would buy another Platypus product from my experiences with this one.
