Widepac™ - Système d'hydratation - Product Reviews(Page 2)
I have had my Source for 3 years now and it really is just like new. 5stars to Source for outstripping the competition and producing a truely useable product at a very reasonable price.
Ive used the source widepak with my salomon, I have to say it was a great innovation for the drinking tube to be removable without leaks.
However the joining area of the mechanism and the tube came loose just after 1 month of use. The fitting because unusable and I could not fit the mechanism back into the housing. Perhaps a change in design to make the detaching mechanism a permanent part of the bladder would be good for the next version.
The Source one had no such problems!
Never leaked - even under a full, oversized backpack.
Downsides- Closing the bladder's top can get tricky if you really want fill it up all the way, and it isn't comfertable to hold outside the backpack (but not having a handle saves space... so...)
All in all - the best bladder i've used. No leaks, No smells, the tube comes out, and it can stand a LOT of pressure.
Way to go!
