Description

Drink without breaking your stride.

Grab CamelBak's Unbottle Hydration Reservoir and use it with any of your packs. This water reservoir slips inside or clips onto the outside of your backpack for easy, on-the-go hydration. CamelBak's HydroTanium reservoir includes a bacteria-eliminating compound so you don't end up with unidentified slimy stuff floating around in your water. The Unbottle's super-strong polyurethane material and self-sealing bite valve keep water from leaking out, and an outside loop makes it easy to hang CamelBak's reservoir upside down to dry.

Does its job, and does it well!

This hydration pack is great! Keeps my water nice and cool in the summer months. I found it'll keep my water chilled for about 5-6 hours in 80º weather. The new Omega bladder helps to keep down on that funky plastic taste that some of the older bladders had. The bladder itself is super durable for my uses with backpacking, and fits perfectly in my Osprey Mutant 38. I have the 100 oz system, and it holds plenty of water for me for the entire day. The only thing is with these bladders, they do require some maintenance, mainly just to keep them clean. If you just use water in them it helps to keep down on the amount of time you have to clean it. The big bite valve works well, and the shut off on the valve is a great idea also, because it prevents unnecessary leaks, which can be disastrous if you are rationing your water.

Works as Advertised

I've been using it in 90 degree heat inside of a pack, and it keeps water below 70 degress for about 4-5 hours. It does fit in the resevoir pocket on my BD Infinity 50, but just barely, this thing is rather bulky (you can easily sacrifice the insulation and pull the bottle out though). As commented below the hose does seem to be excessively long and after a couple of weeks still has a plastic taste, but these aren't enough to keep me from recommending.

Multi Functional

I have the 100 oz version of this and it works great. The new material that camelback uses doesn't have the plastic taste like the old school bladders do. The insulation keeps your water cool all day, but if your shedding weight for the backcountry then just slide the bladder out of the sleeve(very simple). The outer sleeve can be hooked up to the outside of your pack in several different ways depending on the features and compression straps. I also used one of my ENO hammock straps and a beaner and made a field expedient day/bladder pack for dayhikes. I also use this when running/walking/working out, just slide it in my old (camelback)cloudwalker pack. Get this!

Does anyone have experience using sports drinks with these type reservoirs? Is it any harder to clean and keep bacteria growth down afterward?

Best Answer Responded on

Usually that's only a real problem in the mouth piece, which isn't even hard to clean really, just takes a little longer.

Overrated

It is kind of ridiculously bulky for a bladder, takes up too much space in a backpack and is kind of heavy too. Thankfully you can wiggle the bladder out of it and just use that. The padding is good for keeping water a decent temperature in cold weather. The hose is also obnoxiously long. But, all in all I haven't had any problems with the system breaking or anything and it works as advertised.

I'm looking for a bladder that will work with my black diamond covert ski bag. I have the smaller of the two bags, but was told a 3L would fit fine. Would you all recommend this bladder for skiing conditions? Would it be durable enough, and would the temp be an issue?

Responded on

In spring they're no problem but in colder windy conditions a bladder is more challenging.
Even with the insulated versions (this is not) you have to be super careful about blowing out all water from the tube and generally need to tuck the hose inside your jacket.
The bladder itself won't freeze, just the tube and especially the mouth piece.

Also, you don't need to get this version, look at the plain camelbak bladders without straps and what not.

It helps a little not to use the "on/off" switch at the end of the hose. You can either buy one without it or just remove it.
And consider the insulated version if you wish.

Really Nice Water Bin

There's not a lot to say about this thing. It holds mass amounts of water, seems to be extremely durable and easy to make a pack out of it with Osprey bag straps used as shoulder straps. The bite valve seems to wear out fairly quickly but with the lockable L-valve there haven't been any leakage problems. I looked at this mainly as just a more durable bladder, which it definitely is!

Won't break the Camel's back

You cannot go wrong with camelbak, they really do make the best hydration systems. Extremely durable, will not burst or leak even under a lot of pressure. The tube is long enough to reach your mouth even when using big backpacks. I recommend getting the cap to protect the valve. It gets dirty, it's kinda of annoying to buy extra stuff that should come with the bladder, but is is worth it. There is no after taste and it keeps fungi free for quite a long time. However, proper cleaning especially of the tube is recommended. I do not recommend using it in alpine hiking (cold temperature), more insulation is needed. The whole thing froze on me while climbing a glacier in Ecuador. I reached the summit without drinking any water!

Just what you'd expect....

Works great. Quality construction. I love the huge opening for the reservoir, which makes cleaning it out wonderfully easy. I wish the hose had some neoprene insulation around it -- more for protection than insulation, really, but it's a minor drawback. Can't beat a lifetime warranty. One warning: you better have a pretty strong grip and decent-sized hands to unscrew the lid -- it's REALLY tight.

holds water

1. The camelbak will leak out of the bite valve if the valve isn't closed while you are hiking. 2. The water will taste like plastic the first few times you use it, but it does wear off. 3. Buy a valve cover with this to keep dirt from getting in your grill.

Very necessary

I love this unbottle. I have several bags and I'm able to put this in any bag or attach it to the outside. I have the North Face Surge and it only has a laptop pocket but with the unbottle it becomes a reservoir bag. Good stuff. Go for big one if you have a choice.

How does this camelbak clip onto the outside of your pack?

Responded on

In the photo it shows there are 4 plastic clips on the end of the grey webbing. That is how it clips on. Also I guess it depends on what kind of pack you have in order for it to work best clipping to the outside of the pack.

Responded on

Does anyone have an image of it clipped to a pack for Jarred? I'm kinda confused as to how it clips on too.

Icy cold

Just got one of these. It's pretty sweet. Keeps stuff cold for a nice long while. It fits in my Osprey pack a little tightly. The hose is plenty long enough. I just wish there were a magnetic spot on the bite valve like my nalgene bladder. But this bladder is better. A bit more sturdy. I've already put this through the runs.

What is the little yellow thing on the mouthpiece? I have a 3L pouch already but my mouthpiece looks different.Also, Can I buy this pack without the water pouch included? I already have a pouch and would like to just get the shell/ outside part of this product.

Best Answer Responded on

It's a valve to more securely close the mouthpiece so you don't spray water all over yourself when you lean on the bite valve.

Responded on

This shut off valve is nice. I once drove 35 miles to a remote area to mountain bike. Had thrown my camelbak in the truck seat and it was sitting on the bite valve. Needless to say when I got there I had no water to drink and my seat was soaked.

Keeps it Cold

Taste-free water. Bladder doesn't absorb taste if you put in Gatorade or something, as long as you dump and rinse when after use. Cleaning tablets do job the if you don't. Heavier than the bladder alone, but keeps water cold for a pretty long time, a trade-off I'm willing to make.

yes! camelbak saviour!

I bought this pack for my mother who has cancer. She can't get out of bed very often and it's imperative that she stay hydrated. So, I bought this pack and slung it to her bed post filled with ice water - genius.

How long is the tube?

How long is the tube?

Responded on

Plenty long. Camelbak hoses typically are 36" in length. I stuff my Unbottle in my 75L backpack all the time with plenty of slack.I'll be honest though, bite the bullet and get the 3L. Having the extra liter of water doesn't hurt, and you'll be glad that you do have it more often than not.http://www.backcountry.com/store/CAM0237/CamelBak-Unbottle-Hydration-Pack-3L.html
