it is my intent to do what is best for TOF, my bed side manners suck and for that I am sorry.
I am blunt and to the point and I do not have the ability to sugar coat it to save your fillings, So really if I tell you stop pissing on the carpet, just knock it off, man up and don't puff up carry on like soap opera. the rules here are really light so man up.
Some have asked way do you put up with all the crap some put me through. and this is it
I am tired of big business just taking form us outdoorsmen. most of the product is defective and does not work as stated. bottom line if there product sucks I want ever outdoorsmen to know about.
All I ask is support those that support you, this place is about real unpaid information, its real outdoorsmen not paid to say something outdoorsmen.........

I use a 100 oz camelback and a 16 oz water bottle as reserve. When I suck air on the Camelbak I know I still got 16 oz.

same as glass eye... 100oz with a 16oz plastic bottle filled with Gatorade powder and a packet of Emergen-C. I use that when I eat lunch or take a break. Usually a good pick me up after sweating all morning.
some people have bad luck with Camelbaks and some don't...I am one that has never had a bladder leak. there are other brands out there that you can try if you choose to move away from a Camelbak

I have used a bladder last 5 years came with my pack thick material unknown brand. I recently got a new pack with new smaller cheap bladder that leaked from the cap 1 time so I decided to carry bottles for a day hunt. Bottles are louder sloshing noise than the bladders. Ill be switching back to 1 bladder and 1 back up full bottle

I gave up on bladder years ago. One more gadget. Couple gatorade bottles with water. I quit overthinking it.

I been using MSR bladders for years,no leaks.I also have a bulletproof one for the E-stock,never a leak.
I carry a flexable military canteen for back-up if needed,same with the water filter. I have no trouble filling up from puddles...
I hate having water slosh around,same with any noise I might make while hunting.
And nothing worse than finding out the bottle in the pack has soaked your gear and clothes and you have no water.....been to that BBQ!

In the old days, we almost never carried water. Drank out of streams........Hunting in Montana, I thought the same way this year......Cold temps not that far from any roads.......Last day after walking to the top of the mountain, I got a little thirsty coming down. Drank from a pipe that goes into a cattle drinker......The next day......Runs city!.......Thought I was in Mexico.........
Water just isn't what it used to be...........

MSR Dromedary lite. I have killed countless camelbak reserviors but have had the same MSR for probably 10-15 years.
I carry a collapsible one or two to hoard water, or to mix drink mixes. Only water in the reservoir to limit gunk growth.
Just like hunting spots posted online, stupidity is searchable forever.
