So I read the reviews and, while there weren't many of them) most of them seemed favorable to this product. I was excited to see good reviews for a $13 item, so I purchased one. First of all, the top slides on and can be a pain to get just right. That top is also easily pulled off the bag, causing the water to spill in your pack or the floor. That part can me managed, though, if you're careful. However, the bite valve just wouldn't work for me. I'd get just little bits at a time. I had to struggle for every little drop. I managed to get some good gulps before hitting the trails so I took it with me on a hike. Imagine you just traversed a very steep and long portion of trail, your tired and your winded, your thirsty as all heck, and your water bladder is full of water that it just doesn't want to let you have. Frustrating indeed. Luckily I took an actual bottle of water, and by the end I was pouring the water from the bladder to the bottle so I could actually drink it. Top that off with the cap that is suppose to close around the valve to keep it from dripping (drips is all you'll get) and also keep dirt off of the valve, but just wont stay the heck on the valve. Sure it was only $13 but that is $13 wasted on this item. Save another $10 and put it all towards a better water bladder.
