I’m not sure I love the zip-top closure- the Camelbak’s twist-on closure felt more secure. I do like the on/off mechanism of the mouthpiece though. You just twist the mouthpiece. The Camelbak has a little lever that I could never remember what position was open and what was closed. Compared to the Camelbak, the bladder isn’t as pliable, but I don’t feel a difference when the backpack is on my back.
If you’re going to be using this in a Camelbak pack, know that the top (where the closure is) is just a little bit too wide, so you’ll have to angle it in order to close the backpack. There’s no hook on top to keep it upright in your pack. Problem solved- I took the cheapy hose clip from the Platypus (it’s the type of clip you’d use to clip a work ID badge to your shirt) and used that to clip the top of the bag to the loop in the Camelbak. You could also do this with a zip tie or a velcro strip.
All in all, I’m happier with the Platypus than I was with the Camelbak bladder, mostly because the water tastes so much better. Even my dog refused to drink the Camelbak water on a hot day, it tasted so bad. Now we’re both a lot happier. I’ll give an update if this changes so you’ll have an idea of how long this bladder will last.
