SOURCE Product Reviews
Features I love about the 3.0L Widepac...
- Capacity - I do a lot of hiking/backpacking. Water sources are not always readily available. It's nice to have a higher capacity for those types of areas.
- Easy-of-use - The bite valve, the quick connect, the bladder sealing... all make using the hydration system very simple. Even someone with no prior knowledge could effectively put this system to use with no instruction. It also fits easily into all four of my backpacks.
- Durability - I'm beginning to wonder why I ever purchased spare parts. I go on every trip with full confidence in my Source hydration system. No leaks... ever. No kinks... ever.
Slight hint of plastic taste even after washing it before use so I'm not sure yet about the 'non-toxic' claims....Obviously we're taking their word for it on a large level since most of us aren't going to get these lab tested.
Tip: Try not to leave water in the bag for more than a day. Fresh water is best to have at all times. Also, the pack can feel slightly slimy inside if water is left in it, so I be sure to dump water that night, run a microfiber cloth through it (if there is no dish soap) and refill the next day.
