I have a 2L bladder in my pack...It has enough room that I could fit a 3L in the bladder bag. The bladder bag compartment is not tied down at the base and can move in the pack itself. Only the top of the bladder compartment it tied to the frame. If you move to a 3L bladder you will lose some a pretty good amount of space in your bag.

Nice lightweight pillow
4 5

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

This pillow packs down really small. 5"x2.5"x2.5" and weighs around 3 ounces for the medium. Its really easy to inflate and deflate. I find it comfortable to sleep on. The only downside I can see with this item is it could puncture pretty easy if your not careful. The Pillow comes with patches and glue to fix any holes.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This backpack is a nice looking backpack...I wish there were more compartments built into this pack. Also the side water holders are very difficult to reach when the pack on your back. The major con I have with this Crestone 75 is the comfort of the shoulder straps...I could never get the adjustment correct on them...I have worn many packs in my time but this one is not comfortable at all to me... A pack should not be hurting your shoulders only 6 miles into a long hike. I am going to return this product and find another pack with more options built into the pack....

All the tri-climate jackets from North face will run you about 250 bucks and up...Sometimes you can find them on sale which is a big help...The tri-climates are nice because you can decide what you want to wear and also you can also change out the zip-out liner for something heavier if need be...Some of the tri-climate jackets have zip-in liners, and I have my Denali windproof fleece as my zip-in liner...
