The best got better
I have had a Dromedary bladder (4L) for almost 10 years or so. I have had it so long the opening plastic is starting to yellow. I have used and abused my Dromedary for so long now and it is still running strong. My only gripe was I found the 4 liter size too big for my adventures since I always have water on the trails I like. Also, the first generation bite valve finally started to leak after being repeatedly frozen and thawed on countless snowshoeing hikes. With a recent trip approaching I decided to upgrade the old bladder with a new one.

I wanted a smaller bladder in the 2L size range. I am a loyal customer when something is made as well as these bladders. Made in the USA, bombproof, and a proven track record. The Hydromedary bladder was an easy choice. I used it on a 16 mile round trip in Colorado's high country this past weekend and it worked perfectly.

The Pro's: It is bombproof, I actually used it as a pillow under my sleeping pad since I knew it wouldn't leak. It fit in my pack really well, it is a slim design and dropped into my packs bladder pouch perfectly. The new bite valve has a "shut off" valve built into it for a positive lock on the bite valve. I found this useful in the car ride up and in the tent, I knew it wouldn't accidentally open. The tube was plenty long for my pack. One thing I love is this bladder has no plastic taste to it.. Perfection.

I would only gripe about a few things, and they are all nit-picky things... like, the bite valve is a little bulky to route through my packs bladder tube port, and the flow on the bite valve isn't nearly as good as some other bladders I have had. The trade off is it is absolutely like a vault when it comes to leaking so I am cool with it. Also, I added a small length of cord to make a handle between the grommets this aided in carrying it to and from the lake.

I love this thing, it's expensive, but the price reflects the quality and I would certainly recommend it to a friend. In fact, on this trip we had a noob who's bladders tube kept kinking on him. He asked what kind I had and I recommended he drop the coin on this one and never look back. Keep it up MSR, and I'll keep buying your stuff! Review by Colorado Drew
