    WAM--Water Appreciation Moment

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is my co-worker and I celebrating a "WAM" moment with my Camelbak 3L reservoir. Hydrate yourself and your friends with this clutch piece of day hiking equipment. This thing was used 24/7 for about 180 days last year. It is solid. Only thing I found to be challenging about it is that the twist cap can be sort of sassy--aka hard to close and open sometimes. Otherwise Camelbak puts out a great product! Winter hiking or camping? Consider ditching the hose for the day as it will freeze, just a heads up.

    WAM--Water Appreciation Moment

    No Leaks

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Bought this as a replacement for an old Camelbak bladder. Quick release hose and locking sip valve work great. Haven't had any issues with the quick snap cap. No leaking and water doesn't have any "bladder" taste either.

    Replacement after 6 years

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    The quick link is a great addition to the the camelbak. It is less hassle getting the bladder in and out of the pack when tanking up. The material is stronger, although I never had a leak in my first bladder. I'm not a fan of the screw cap after having used a friend's bladder with a roll top closure, which is easier to clean. But I went with the camelbak to have the thermal hose in the winter.

    Great replacement

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great replacement for my old, worn out, beat up reservoir I've used for years that finally began to kick the can. The detachable hose feature makes cleaning a walk in the cake park. With proper care, this reservoir will last you many years with somewhat heavy use.

    Leak-Proof Design

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I started using Camelbaks in the late 90's, back when the bladders looked like something you might find in a hospital ER. Since then I have owned a few different versions of this bladder and they always end up leaking out of the closure area. I could tell with the last model I owned that they tried really hard to solve this problem, but the o-ring eventually stopped aligning with the threads of the opening. It appears that years of testing have finally solved the problem.

    The closure easy super easy, and the seal is water tight. I also like that the new bladder didn't taste like chemicals (common with many knock offs).Thank you Camelbak and here's to many more years of dry and worry free use.

    Great Bladder!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great bladder! I went with the 3L which is probably too big for me, but I've been just filling it up half way. I use it for hikes or long runs. The only downside is that with the 100 degree heat in Salt Lake right now, the water is pretty hot by the time I start drinking it.

    works great!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this for my recent trip down death hollow. Combined with a Sawer mini filter, this was perfect! I have had bladders pop on me before, but this thing is resilient. Stuck in the back of my pack with 40 pounds of gear, it held up great. I would recommend this to anyone.

    works great!

    Consistent to Camelbak

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had several of these reservoirs throughout my young adult life and they are great. An awesome, lightweight, and convenient way to carry water when you're out hiking, or snowboarding. The only down fall to this type of water carrier is that the hose ALWAYS has a little plastic taste to it.

    5 years with no problems. Very durable.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have owned my Camelbak Antidote 3 liter bladder for 5 years now and have never once had a problem with leaks. I have used my bladder so many times that all the logos and text have completely worn off. Still holds strong and I will continue to use it until it completely fails. It does have its issues: 1) The mouth is wide, but is difficult to completely fill it. The best way is to lay it flat in order to "top it off" to maximum its liquid capacity. 2) The quick attachment is no longer is functional. It takes a lot of work to disconnect and reconnect it. I just leave it connected all the time now. 3) Has a few areas where water collects during drying. You can try to get all the water out as much as possible but it will still hang out along the bottom or top lip. 4) The lid is tricky to close. Mine has a sweet spot that I have to be exact in order to completely get the full quarter turn in to close it. Takes me a few tries every time, but once I get it closed fully, I can squeeze the bladder as hard as I can and it holds up very strong . 5) Its large and heavy but thats the price you pay for durability. It barely fits into Osprey external hydration sleeves like on the Kestral, but not in internal sleeves like the North Face Banchee, or Osprey Stratos. Something to take into consideration before buying.

    The bite valve is great. The shut off valve is essential and works great. I finally had to replace my bite valve after 5 years. They are delicate so you must be careful setting down your pack. Just recently noticed that the water started tasting weird. I bought the Camelbak cleaning tablets and that did the trick.

    If you want a durable, reliable hydration bladder look no further. It is more pricey than some others on the market, but I feel it is the best deal. It will last you a very long time like it has for me.

    Solid Construction, Reliable

      CamelBak has been making reservoirs forever, and they know what they're doing. This bladder is simple, but really well designed to avoid unwanted leakage. I bought this one to replace an older model that had gotten a bit funky. No fault of CamelBak, just normal wear.
      I absolutely loved my old one, so I knew I wanted the same one to replace it. The 2L size is good for day trips, but if you drink a lot or will be in the heat it would be wise to size up to the 3L.

      For skiing should I go with the 2L or 3L?...

      For skiing should I go with the 2L or 3L?

      Best Answer


      The size of CamelBak Antiodote Reservoir you use really depends less on the whether you are skiing, trekking, or snowshoeing, and more on whether you are skiing the resort or deep backcountry. The three factors to consider are weight, space, and proximity to more water.

      If you are skiing the resort and are always within 45 minutes from a water source I would recommend the 2L. No sense in waisting precious space and weight when you can refill whenever you want.

      But if you will be an hour or more from a good water source I would suggest that the 3L is worth the added weight and moderate bulk.

      I personally always go with the 3L. Just because you have the capacity to carry 3L of water, that doesn't mean you have to fill it all the way up. Most of the time I only put 1.5L in my 3L bladder, and I have the capacity to put more in if I am going to need more water and not have to worry about swapping out different size bladders. 3L all the way!

      Does anyone have any experience on how...

      Does anyone have any experience on how this performs under snow/cold conditions? I'm planning to utilize my backpacks pouch and go snowboarding with this reservoir. Am I better off with an insulate bladder?

      Any help would be much appreciated.

      Best Answer

      So the biggest reason you are going to want to go with an insulated reservoir isn't because the reservoir itself will freeze up but because the hose will first and it really doesn't need to be much below freezing for that to happen quickly. You could just blow back all the water out of the hose but then you just have a lot of air in the reservoir and all your water is sloshing around. Do yourself a favor and make sure you go insulated.

      I have used uninsulated reservoirs for snowboarding before and the biggest issue is the hose freezing. You won't have any issues with the reservoir freezing but it would be a good idea to get the insulated tube to go with it. The insulated tube won't always keep it from freezing but it does help.

      I like the insulated tube in the summer to because it helps to keep the water from not warming up as much in the hose. No matter the conditions I always blow the water back into the bladder to keep it all the same temperature, but I also love the insulated hose because of the mouthpiece cap that comes with it. It stays on better than the Blue cap you can buy separate and it keeps your mouthpiece clean from dirt and other debris.

      Are the reservoirs BPA free? Mine has that 'baby toy' plastic smell, and I can taste the plastic in the water.....trying to avoid drinking bottles and plastic products that aren't healthy for us. Sure hope they aren't made w/BPA.

      I bought a camelbak pixie about 3 years ago. It came with a 1L water reservoir and I'm having trouble finding this size now. Do you carry any IL size or would a 1.5 L probably still fit.

      anyone get a leak with this thing yet and take up camelpak on their lifetime warranty?

      seems to good to be true.

      Best Answer

      i had this and threw it out before i knew about the warranty. i also had the camelbak "better bottle." i did get another one free when it crapped out, except shipping. contact the manufacturer directly. or just buy off backcountry next time...and dont ever worry about it. they back everything they sell for your lifetime. but, do yourself a favor, spend the extra $ next time and get the Osprey/Nalgene hydration bladder. i love the thing.

      Mine started leaking on my second hike with it. I opened up my pack to get my camera out and noticed that it was sitting in a pool of water. Kind of sucked. I dumped some water out hoping that it would take some pressure off the tube connector or opening but no luck. The next day it leaked again and my pack was wet around the tube connector. Later it was wet around the opening. Not sure where it's leaking exactly. If I squeeze it real hard nothing comes out. I decided to unhook the tube and attach the bladder to the outside of my pack to finish my hike. I'm going to exchange it for another one hoping I got a defect because I like the design but I'm a little skeptical.
