The only thing I use a bladder for is peeing.....ck1 wrote:I use the Ultimate Direction Epic pack, with its 1 gallon bladder. I like the Ultimate Direction bladders for the "fold and roll" closure. I hate, hate, hate their mouthpiece...total design flaw...it relies on a small rubberband to hold the mechanism closed until you bite on it to open...it ALWAYS leaks...so I've converted the tube and mouthpiece to the camelback brand. I use the right angle mouthpiece with the valve-closing lever....I like that I can totally shut off the flow.
Look into the dromedary bags by MSR. You'll be haulin' 3 gallons like a mule soon.I carry close to a gallon of water in my pack right now but I think I will need something more later... Is there any "bladder" that holds 2-3 gallons??
