Discounted or free product is it good or bad? I'll make the provider/author either happy or sad........... and sometimes even mad.
I was provided a sample of this product (green 2.5 liter) in exchange for an honest review. Since I was looking for a replacement bladder for my road bike package, the timing seemed fortuitous. Hopefully I spelled that correctly.
After I tested this unit I looked over the prior written reviews and was surprised at the variances. About 78% of reviewers gave it a 4 or 5 star rating, yet a substantial number of purchasers/reviewers gave it 3 stars or less. Most of those rating it lower either complained about the taste or about their experience with the unit leaking from various connection points. My only supposition is that either different manufacturers were employed in making this product or the product itself was damaged either by improper manufacturer/seller storage or from poor packing or shipping...
Works awesome! I am writing this review after 5 months of use, and have not had a single issue since day one. Just make sure you are careful, and screw the cap on properly. If the treads are cross threaded accidentally, then obviously the bag will leak.
The handle at the top where you fill the bag is very convenient. It allows you to have a firm hold on the bag while you're filling it with ice and water.
When you first get it, I would recommend filling it a few times and add baking soda into the water. Shake. Let it sit a few minutes, then drain it out via the tube. This will prevent a plastic taste during your first few uses, and will not harm any part of the bag.
The only thing I would change is the biting tube. When it is locked, it is a little difficult to unlock while you are riding a bike. It's really just a minor inconvenience. When you think about it, there's really no reason to have it locked while riding anyway. You are going to be drinking...
I got a pair of these yesterday and immediately checked to make sure all the fittings were tight (they weren't) and filled them up to check for leaks. The mouthpieces/valves are horrible, one leaked so badly it emptied the bladder in just about 50 minutes, and that was just hanging on the porch, not packed into a pack or carrier & under pressure. The valves do not stay closed and open after just a small amount of movement, and when open leak. One of the valves almost falls apart from shaking it, and seems they would pull apart with little effort. They are not well constructed with no real method of 'locking' them in the closed or open positions. I considered going through the hassle of returning them, but instead I will simply use the spare mouthpieces from the bladders these ones are replacing. If I did not have the extra's, I would definitely send these back.
Bottom line: You get what you pay for. These are low-cost items and it shows.
