Mostly work
We bought two Convertubes with Sawyer filter to go with our 1L Nalgene water bottles. We used them in our recent trekking trip to Nepal. The convertubes worked fine in most days. However, in the last few days, we had difficulties in getting the water through with one of convertubes. We were not sure what the reasons were. We thought about the possibility of the filter got clogged by dirt in the water. But if that were the case, then both convertubes should have the same problems but that was not the case. Also, the water to be filtered was from the Himalaya mountains and was quite clear from the look of it. But overall we were reasonably happy with it.

Sounds amazing - trekking in Nepal! Happy to read your feedback. Did you use the plunger every now and then to backwash the filter? That should be done no matter how clear the water looks by eye - and it should resolve any problems with the flow. If backwashing doesn't help, please get in touch with our Customer Service and we'll look into the matter. Enjoy the outdoors with SOURCE!

The best bush bashes ever made
I'm wearing them now. Exceptional fit and comfort and built to withstand serious bush bashing., these sandals are durable enough to last years. My brother in law has a pair that are at least twenty five years old and they look as good as new. Every indication that mine will also last the distance. Hard to get locally in Australia . Give your au distributor a gee up. Regards Peter TD

Great functionality for all kinds of travelling. Useful. Neutrally taste of water. Easily foldable. No bulky drinking goods in your luggage. No leaking out of bottle due to a drinking valve. Heat resistant.
I would buy this bottle always again.

Great visibility and functionality
The iVis Blaze has great visibility day or night. Even filled to capacity (3l) it is comfortable to wear. The storage pouch has more than enough capacity for small tools, a headlamp, snacks or whatever. The shoulder strap encasement keeps the hydration tube and mouthpiece clean and out of the way. I find just two shortcomings. The first concerns the bite valve. It has to be twisted open to unlock which necessitates using two hands to get a drink. Source offers a “tooth-pull” valve for their military hydration packs that I highly recommend because it allows getting a drink using only one hand. The other shortcoming concerns is that the pack doesn’t have strap keepers for the chest strap, which leaves it dangling out.

Tube Inulater worked a treat
Recieved quickly and the product worked a treat as expected! Was perfect for icy trekking conditons.

Hydration pack
I bought my first Source Hydration pack approx 4 years ago. Used it on many hikes and especially motorbike rides ranging in length from 1 days to 6 months(several of 2-3 months) always had good use from the product until last year. Towards the end of our 6 months m/c trip thru Europe problems developed. The tube with the valve started to block up and after stripping the whole thing down found the problem was a light brown film blocking the tube and valve, I have no idea where this came from , because I am very fastidious about the quality of the water going in. I suspect it MAY be part of the antibacterial treatment of the plastic the bags are made from. Anyway I have replaced the bag with a new one (functioning well) and will see how long this one will last. I suppose 4 years of frequent use is not bad!

Thank you for your testimony! Four years of frequent use is not bad, we would agree - and we are happy to hear you replaced it with a new Widepac. Not sure exactly about the source of what you're describing. But we do recommend to use our Tube Brush Kit and to clean the valve (disassemble it and clean the parts) after extended use of the system, and before storing it for longer period of time. See our Care & Use sheets available for download for more detail. Enjoy the outdoors with SOURCE!

Great sandals
I already bought my 2nd pair of Gobi Women Sandals. After many years of trekking in desert and mountains I needed new ones. I use them primarily for hikes in dune landscapes and over hamadas of Sahara.

What I needed for winter
I have had problems mostly with freezing bite valve, but with storm valve the valve doesn't freeze anymore. The tube is lightly insulated and probably would freeze, but I don't have this problem, as I always blow the tube empty after drinking.

sandales
Djibouti sandales : Super ! Résistantes, confortables (utilisation journalière intérieur extérieur depuis 2ans 1/2) tout comme la "Classique" pour la rando.

Thank you for the testimony! 2 1/2 years (and counting) daily indoor and outdoor use of our Djibouti is definitely a testimony to its comfort and durability.

These bad boys are indestructible! Comfy as all hell too due to how thick they are

Sac de bonne qualité
Sac de bonne qualité, semble robuste et look sympa, mais manque un peu de rangement pour le vtt (outils, chambres). Ne bouge pas une fois ajusté.
Bon produit dans l'ensemble.

Thank you for the feedback, happy the pack sits firm and doesn't move.

Regarding your criticism: It is definitely one of our purest hydration packs and not meant for storing gear - we have other packs in our line that would suit you better if you need to store tools and spare parts for MTB riding.

Autumn / Spring, hardly winter :(
The tube failed miserably in -9'C. After 30min whole content of the tube was frozen. Prior to that, the mouth piece became unusable - this is the first piece that got froze. When trying to open it, the whole mouth piece spins around and does not comply. If enough force is applied, the black, big piece pops out and water flows constantly + all your clothes get wet.

I'm using the summer kit for several years now and i'm very happy with it. The winter one - i'll be frank, i'm not sure anyone ever tested it...

Thank you for your honest review & feedback: we don't understand what happened with the valve. The Storm valve is a highly reliable and well tested push-pull valve. Please contact our Customer Service if you feel the product did not live up to its task. 

As a tip: in extremely low temperatures, we recommend to 'empty' the drinking tube and push the water back into the bladder by blowing a bit of air into the mouthpiece.

Ride 15L Review
I Love this bag! In the past and for years I've always had another brand of bag for hiking/biking/motorcycling. So I was careful when selecting a new brand. The hydration bag/nozzle stays fresh/clean and is such a breeze. The ease of the zippers/clasps and placement of pockets is very convenient also snug when ascending/descending. Its a comfortable, convenient, sturdy bag. I am glad I have switched. Thank you SOURCE for thinking of us, outdoors !!! Ti R

Best Hydration Bladder Ever
Everything about this bladder is the best. The slot for the support strap is big enough and rugged enough not to break. The cover over the mouthpiece has a great retaining string. The mouthpiece is easy to use and has a built in valve on it. The hose and hose connection are rugged and work great. The bladder is easy to clean... Perfect!

Arrived in a timely fashion
The kit came quite quickly with everything included that I needed. The instructions for installation were clear. I haven't used it yet but it looks like it will work well for the function it is intended for. I will try using it in summer as well. I'm not sure if it will heat up the water because of the black tube or if the insulation will offset that.
