Good surprise: this weave gives some more rigidity to the tube, which is a good point as it allows a better passage from the inside of the bag to the shoulder strap of the bag pack. But the fact that it is not transparent doesn't allow to visualize the absence of bacteria inside the tube...
Reply by SOURCE Thanks for your review, Philippe. The cover will actually help prevent anything from growing inside the tube. As long as you flush out any drinks with a bit of soapy and pure water, and hang to dry after use (as recommended in our care & use sheet), there's little to worry about. Depending on what drinnk you're using the Widepac with, our Tube Cleaning Kit (available here in our online shop) is also an option. For use with pure water only, the tube cleaning kit is not required.
I keep a 3lt Source hydration back pack behind the seat of my glider for flights of sometimes over 6 hours. I needed a reliable leak proof extension. The weave covered tube fits the bill perfectly and the in-line connector appears strong and reliable.
I'm very pleased with the overall quality of this product. The new polymer on the bite valve is excellent. There are two small issues: first, the weave wasn't very securely attached to the shrink wrap, so I had to re-glue it; second, shipping from Israel to the US took a very long time. I'm very pleased with everything I've purchased from Source. I use their products every single day to store water on my lorry, even a week and a half later, it's still good.
