Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've been using the 2 liter reservoir for a couple of years now, and it's holding up really well. I mostly use it for backpacking, with a Sawyer in-line filter clipped on, so the quick release hose attachment is fantastic. I also really love that it opens completely at one end, this makes filling it from lakes and creeks easy, and it also makes it fairly easy to clean and dry completely when I get home. I love this combo - being able to just fill it up at a water source and drink, not having to pump or treat water. I was a bit concerned about the bar closure being secure, but so far so good. The thing I didn't like was the bite valve and giant cover - they didn't work great and were difficult to manage with the pack ports, etc., plus annoying to pull off the cover every time I wanted to drink. So, I just cut it off and stuck on a plain Camelbak bite valve, which works great.
