The pack itself is really durable, and I never felt once like it would pop inside my bag (7-8KG). However because the pack doesn't have a cover for the water opening (part which goes in mouth), it can get really dirty when it touches the ground. I had to be very careful when putting my backpack on the ground as if it rolled on the dirt, the dirt would now stick to the wet opening. Honestly I would give this product 5/5 if it simply had a cap on rather than constantly having to remove dirt which happened constantly.
I have used the bladder over the Summer and through two hiking trips to Europe. I have yet to have the bladder leak and the system works well and it seems to be well made for the price. My only issue with the system is that it gives the water a strange plastic like taste, this is something that has not been remedied by usage or with washing.
Cheap and works well
Gives water plastic flavour
very good product at very reasonable price
cheap and very good quality
May be a design weakness in top sealing slider which provides three lug holes for securing velcro straps on many rucksacks. The centre one snapped in my case after about 6 times day use. Although not taking a great strain the plastic molding is on the weak side compared to more expensive products. But this design could be easily solved with little or no manufacturing cost. A pity. Bag still works though and sits in rucksack pocket though I can no longer secure the top.
Easy to fill, did not leak, easier to cleam
Plastic top weakness - broke at securing lug
