Maybe the earlier versions of the bag it came with were flawed, I don't know. I bought the 2L version (Piranha 10) for twenty-nine ninty-nine at a big box store with thrifty acres and only checked reviews here after I got it home. Said reviews worried me so I washed it out, filled it to the brim and began jumping on a trampoline with it. Nada. Not a drop spilled. Left it full in the sink overnight, came in, bag was dry and so was the sink. So I took it on a three hour car trip for a ten-mile hike. Needless to say my butt stayed dry, even hiking up and down fairly steep elevations and having to hop across streams repeatedly. The bag is very serviceable but if you want to purchase a better one the backpack will accommodate other brands no problem. Bag did have an unpleasant plastic taste, I just let it sit overnight with a baking soda/lemon juice/vinegar solution sitting in it which helped to greatly cut down on that taste. If such things bother you you can always mix up a weak...
I have used this product twice during hikes and both times have had the same serious issue: the bladder slowly slides out of the retaining clip which eventually allows water to come pouring out the top of the bladder.
On my hike today, I took breaks from hiking to open up the bag and adjust the bladder/clip when necessary. I have tried different combinations of securing the clip: none of which have been fruitful.
Something that has been care-free with previous brands has turned into a nightmare with this Sierra Piranha product. In a few months I'm hiking a 14er and if I do not have confidence in this product I will be purchasing a different brand and will not be looking back.
I have reached out to the company regarding this issue and will update this if anything comes of that.
I will be returning this backpack. During my only run with it the bladder kept slipping out of the slide and water went everywhere. I bought it originally because it was more comfortable than others. Very poor design. It looks like others have had the same issue.
