I used to buy platypus bladders, but they get fatigue cracks and leak. I sat on my friend's bladder (don't remember the brand) and popped it spraying sticky cytomax allover the tent.
The dromedary is fool proof. I've abused my current 2L bag for years and it still doesn't leak.
Here is a tip: the dromedary screw top can be replaced with a standard Nalgene lid.

I got a bunch of these and paired some with long BD spectra dogbones. I like taking too much gear and sewing it up when I get scared. These lightweight biners make that possible. They are much smaller than a standard biner, so they will probably be harder to handle with gloves in winter.

These triggers came on my Taa-k-oons. It adds to my hang time and delays the pump by distributing the pressure between index finger (trigger) and pinky (horn). The problem is it changes the swing so the tool pivots on your index finger instead of the pinky. It is no big problem on a hacked up climb where you are mostly hooking, but on fresh ice the funky swing over stresses my index fingers. Also the trigger gets in the way when I flip the tool around to hammer pins. I don’t use the triggers any more.
