Custom-fit suspension systems are Osprey's bread and butter, so it makes sense that the Hydraulics Hydration Reservoir is shaped with a rigid backer plate to prevent any interference with how your pack fits and carries. The durable MPE reservoir material keeps water tasting exactly the way it should, and the magnetic bite valve keeps the hose secure when you're cruising up the trail.
- Metallocene PE reservoir material is exceptionally strong, taste-free, and BPA- and PVC-free
- Antimicrobial formula keeps mold and bacteria away
- Wide-mouth cap is easy to fill and has a 3/4 turn for quick and secure closure
- Front handle makes the reservoir easy to fill and insert into the pack
- HydroStatic backer plate allows the reservoir to maintain a low-and-wide profile, preventing interference with your pack's suspension
- Magnetic bite valve with included sternum strap magnet keeps the hose secure when hiking
- Bite valve can be quickly closed with a 180-degree shut-off valve
- Flexible 1/4 inch water hose increases flow for satisfying thirst quenching

I fell in love with Osprey packs a few years ago and loved the Nalgene reservoirs the packs used to come with. I was a bit skeptical when finding out Osprey was making them on their own this year, but this one is every bit as good as its predecessor. Rigid back to conform to the pack is great, as opposed to just a loose bladder like CamelBak puts out. The chest magnet is absolutely awesome and allows you to take a drink while still navigating down a trail on your bike. Picked up the cleaning kit as well to ensure any funk that may build up is quickly abolished. Get this bladder and get outside!
Another fit Question: Will this fit in Osprey Sirrus 24, women's?
Yes it will I can fit my 3L one in my Osprey Daylite which is a 13L backpack
I got this for the Osprey poco premium kid carrier and it works great. My son(2) knows how to use it, so it save me having to stop and get him a drink. Large enough for good sized hikes, and very comfortable. Highly recommend it.
will this fit the Osprey Aura 50 bladder pouch better than the camelbak res? felt like I was gonna bust it cramming it in there. wife did mention she could kinda feel the bladder the first day up the trail when it was full.
It should fit any backpack. I was walking through REI and saw some Osprey hydration packs and decided to check them out. Even the 15L packs came standard with the 3L res. I have noticed difficulties putting it is after you have packed your pack as well. What I found that works is filling the res and putting it in then packing around it to create a little pocket for it. Then as you take it out to refill hold the pack so the load doesn't shift. Another option for refilling is the get the camelbak quicklink kit and most filters have adapters that you can just snap right into it without taking it out of the pack.
Do these new bladders have the rigid back like the hydraform?
yes they do.
I love pretty much every feature of this. Things like the 3/4 turn and the front handle really make filling it easy and prevent spilling. The bite valve is great and I haven't noticed any plastic taste. I throw it in an ASICS pack that I have had for a while, and the rigidity and shape of the reservoir really prevent it from taking up too much room. It's great!
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
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.
Does this work with the 36L Manta backpack?
the 2L or 3L? either way they will work almost any backpack. I have fit the 3L one is my daylite daypack. You might need to put this is before you pack your bag too much just to make sure it has room to settle in the hydration pouch. Then you can cram in everything else you want to take.
Will the 3L variant fit into the hydation pouch(slot) of the Kelty Red Cloud 90?
Yes it will.
Are those the new Osprey Hydraulics or the old Hydraform? The picture looks just like the old Hydraform but it might not be the product in the picture. The new Hydraulics is supposed to be blueish color. Looks like by the description this is the new one, but I wanna make sure before I buy.
I do see now the picture was updated! So this is the new Osprey Bladder
