Tough and light

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

I purchased a 4 liter from REI and was pleased with the dromedary. Slight taste of plastic, hoping that will go away but otherwise it's great. The 4 liter fits perfect in the hydration sleeve of my kelty coyote 80, and also the laptop sleeve of a TNF backpack. It weighs in at 8.5 oz with hydration adaption kit attached (sold extra) I have had a camelbak in the past and didn't care much for it, pleased with the MSR.

I'd like to know if you send the items to Brazil?
If yes, how much to send the MSR Dromedary Bags (4L)?

Thanks,

Great Water Tight Bag!!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Have several of them in different sizes used a lot and have not had any leaks but water has little taste from bag if stored to long.

Water Taste

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have a Dromedary 3L bag from 1998. Still in use but always had a plastic taste to the water. I just got the idea to call MSR customer service and inquire about what they used to seal the bag in 1998. It has not changed. However, the rep noted that a bad batch was associated with bags that had brass grommets and indeed mine has brass grommets. He told me to send it in and they will swap the bag after 16 years of use! Great customer service. Obviously durable bag - used on endless climbing trips and back country ski trips over the past 16 years.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I like to use my 6L domedary bag as a dish and hand washing station during camping trips or beach side bbqs. I wish it came with the spigot stock since I pee harder than the standard shampoo travel cap. Other than that it's a solid product.

No more multiple trips the the stream

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These bags are awesome. Before I got one of these we would always fill up our reservoirs and a Nalgene which didn't give us much water. We would have to go fill up at least twice in the evening and twice in the morning. I got the 10 L one and it lets me get enough water for dinner and breakfast. It is nice to be able to relax and cook without worrying about filling up before bed or in the morning. I would also highly recommend getting the spigot attachment because it makes using the drom much easier. Even if you already have a reservior for while you are hiking you should pick up one of these and keep it empty in your pack until you get to camp. It will make your trip much more enjoyable.

Long lasting. Great product.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had my dromedary for 3 years and take it just about everywhere I go. It is as solid a bag as I have found. I haven't noticed the strong plastic taste others have noted, though there was a slight taste at first.
Pick up the Dromedary. You won't be sorry.

Great, but not for me

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Believe the hype. MSR doesn't disappoint. For gear abusers and guides these are the official gear (NOLS, OARS, etc). I am unfortunate to be picky about the taste of my water. I use as steripen because I love the taste of unadultured mountain stream water, and these definitely give a wicked plastic taste. The stuff they laminate the cordura with gives off a bad fast. The 4 litre weighs less than a nalgene. I have to carry a nalgene for the steripen, so I only fill this partially if I know I won't have a water source nearby or if I'm going to do cooking or dishes. For dishes the nozzle is amazing, and there is hydration kit I hear is great. For luxury campers, this works great as a shower. This is durable and lives up to the hype, but because of my water snobbery I would not get it again. If you have a taste like mine you should just get the nalgene bladders, much cheaper, and replace them as they break.

water- consider yourself carried.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

There's no better way. Droms are great. I use mine most for kayaking, and they fit anywhere and everywhere- behind the seat, under the feet, or in the hatches. Super versatile and super tough. The tab around the cap makes it super easy to fill up from a stream or other source, or when you have to filter the msr filters hook right up to the mouth. Great bags. Great bags.

Here I am in southern Utah enjoying a swig from my bag! I use the 4L year round for hiking, skiing, climbing, and camping. It's the only one I own, and the thing is TOUGH! Highly recommended for people who like compact, lightweight stuff!

That is the most majestic Drom Bag Pose I have ever laid eyes upon. Nice work, sir.

10 L Dromedary tasteless.

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

My husband and I purchased two 10L Dromedary Bags to carry extra water on our boating trip. They worked great! no leaks, no bad taste! During our trip we filled one with glorious glacier water and used it over a few days and the taste did not change. The other bag was filled with tap water for about 2 weeks and the taste of the water did not change. Although expensive, the bags worked great. They fill easily and have two pouring options - large and one small.

Excelent

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great for what they are. I will say that i do like knowing that I have this much excess water on hand when hiking around. When they are full, they are not that much extra weight in your pack. They are super durable and I never have to even think about them breaking. I also like to make sure they are clean by using the Osprey bladder cleaning kit.

Is it a sifter?

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have a Dromedary bag and it leaks like a sifter. Get a Camel Bak..

Hey Eddie, this is a bummer indeed.
However, I suspect you received a faulty product. MSR has an awesome guarantee on all their gear. If you purchased from Backcountry, we can also replace that for you. Just chat or call up one of our Gearheads and we can take care of you. Here is more info about MSR's warranty.

Thank you Lexi D.. Yes..I know most of MSR gear is great. I do suspect and always have that I got the one in a hundred thousand "LEMON" which is my luck. I have used MSR stoves with never a problem. And I have an MSR Water Works 2 filter which is fantastic! Unfortunately I bought the Dromedary bag years ago from a brick and mortar store and don't even remember when or where it has been so long but it began to leak very quickly. Thank you for the info.

Just can't kill this thing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had a 2L Dromlite for going on 20 years. During that time it has been dropped, beaten, smashed tight in my pack, tumbled down more than one rock face, fetched out of a river and left out on my deck frozen solid for weeks in the middle of a Wisconsin winter. (not advised and I was lucky it was only 1/2 full) It just keeps going.
Several years ago some confused mice chewed through the webbing when I hung it on a tree limb overnight. I just replaced it with a loop of cord off the top grommet and it works fine. There is very little "bag taste"and I love that it can pour water 3 different ways. Plus it connects directly to my water filter to make it super easy to fill.
There are lighter ways to carry water including the dromlite which I also own but it is still almost 1/2 a pound lighter than 2 nalgene bottles. Also unlike Nalgene it only takes up as much space as you are using as it empties. The black color is both a plus and a minus depending on the season, it can keep it from freezing in cold weather but it will get warm if you leave it in the sun during the summer. All in all it has been one of the best pieces of equipment I have ever bought.

awesome review!- i'm considering buying one of these for my 2014 thruhike of the PCT. Figuring out how to store and carry my water is stressing me out HAHA

How do I decide what size I need?

Hi Miranda,

It depends on how you plan to use it. Basically, there are two situations- the first is that you need to carry extra water for extended distances between water sources. At that point, it helps to know your route and all the variables that go with it like how much you need to stay hydrated, time it will take, temperature... Water weighs a kilo per liter, so the weight adds up fast, and it's all going to revolve around planning and advance knowledge of the conditions. The second, and more common way to use it, is at base camp or where you over night. If it's base camp, get the 10L and enjoy not filling it so often. If it's overnights on the trail, it's largely how many people you have in your group. For two of us, I generally use a 4L. That gives us enough to cook dinner and breakfast with, as well as to fill a couple Nalgenes for the trail the next day, give or take (vast amounts of coffee excluded). A few people and the same holds true for the 6L. I have a 10L in the Dromedary, but my 4L and 6L are both Dromlites. I've modified them all to be able to use with my MSR Autoflow filter, which is something you also might be interested in, as it can hold 4+ liters and saves you from having to do the filtering manually. All are fantastic products. Bottom line: If you're just getting one size, I would go with the 6L and have the majority of your needs handled. Hope this helped you out.

So nice to have a bomb-proof bag. This is also the only hydration bag that I've found with a Lifetime Warranty!

Handy bag.

Great for water storage when in the backcountry. Durable, lightweight, and even more convenient when you're using an MSR water filter. I've also had friends who have blown them up when empty and used them as a pillow...not sure if I'd recommend that. The only area where I think a Nalgene or other hard bottle might be better is in desert conditions; I have seen these rip when inadvertently placed close to a cactus.
