Date Reviewed: July 18, 2005

Strengths:    None,Just like the rest of their house brand garbage. these bladders fit inline very well with the rest of performance gear

Weaknesses:    Heh i don't know where they derived that performance name from, They should have named themselves "Garbage Inc."

Bottom Line:   
I would not buy anything from that place.There are quite a few other mailorder shops with GOOD house brand products & much better service!
BUYER BEWARE!!!

I wouldn't give them any turds but under the circumstances i am forced to give one on each rating.

Strengths:    Lots of storage space
Price
fit
bladder is surprisingly durable and easy to clean.


Weaknesses:    Without a doubt, the lame mouthpiece.


Bottom Line:   
Great price, good fit with lots of straps, holds tons of water and gear comfortably. The lousy mouthpiece is a real pain-seemingly drips out water constantly onto the bike or my leg. Worse when the pack is full and the bladder under some pressure. I had similar problems with my earlier Performance/Platypus mouthpiece as well, and buying another does not solve the problem. I will try out a replacement MSR universal mouthpiece, as Blackburn and Camelback apparently use a smaller diameter tube and will not fit.

5 chilis for price/features, only 3 chilis due to mouthpiece leakage.

Date Reviewed: January 2, 2001

Strengths:    inexpensive,roomy,fits well

Weaknesses:    the bladder...this is the same as the platypus 100oz bladder

Bottom Line:   
I bought this pack mainly for an adventure race that I entered into. The pack was nice and it held everything that was required but the bladder sucks. it didn't make it pass my training phase. first the cap that holds the hose on came off and covered my back with gatorade. I hot glued that and fixed the problem but then the bladder had a complete meltdown and sprung leaks everywhere. the bladder is the same as the platypus bladder. I had to resort to my blackburn bladder that I have had for three years.

Strengths:    cheap, big bladder, comfortable

Weaknesses:    hard to get the valve perfectly placed

Bottom Line:   
it is a sweet deal, compared to comperable camelbacks
very big bladder, and the valve isn't too bad, and if you want a new, fancy one, just go buy a big-bite for a couple bucks. and hey, it has a 100% guaranteed if anything goes wrong. that's better than any girls i've known.

Submitted by Jenn a Weekend Warrior from Santa Clara, CA, USA

Date Reviewed: May 3, 2000

Strengths:    Cheap! Easy-to-clean/dry resevoir.

Weaknesses:    The little elastic loop I put the hose

Bottom Line:   
Like one of the other posters, I originally felt the bladder would not hold up long, because I didn't like the feel of the plastic. Well, so far, I was wrong - it has held up fine, and it is SOOOO easy to clean - I love it! If it ever did go south, you can pick up a new one for about $16 anyway.

Price


Weaknesses:    
Reservoir


Bottom Line:   
The reservoir, although, has nice large opening has a very poor make. The plastic won't last long, it looks too brittle.

Strengths:    
Great pack for the dough. Huge resivoir, easy to clean, oh, and cheap.


Weaknesses:    
Crappy bite valve, needs more pockets.


Bottom Line:   
Great pack for the money. It's often on sale so you can pick it up for even less than %50. Tons of space for liquid, a full 106oz.
