Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I prefer this to my bladders with the screw "lid" on them - the slide top makes for fast and easy cleaning, less water spews out when I close it, and I can use it as a handle. When I first got it, I was hesitant about how thin the material seemed but I haven't had any trouble with it. The hose is more bendable than my other bladders so it's easier to drink while I walk (is a pro) but it sometimes goes rogue and water gets on my shirt (could be a con if that sort of thing bothers you). If you don't overfill it, closing it isn't a challenge. I usually let mine drip-dry but there isn't a divider in it so you can just wipe it out with a paper towel if you need to stow it away quickly.
