Strengths: Pressurized water flow, 2 quick disconnects - at mouth piece and at bag, swivel on mouth piece, anti-microbial lining, lid tightens easily and anti-swash baffles.
Weaknesses: Smaller fill opening is minor hindrance,especially when trying to pack ice cubes. You can't get a hand inside to clean, but brushes fit just fine.
Best 70oz water reservoir out there. Pump/pressure system works great, make it easy to hydrate when you are breathing heavy. Water flow is good, Hand pump is easy to use and fits in pack easily, pack it with you to keep flow at a maximum. You can store reservoir in fridge and easily put it in the pack just before you ride with out re-routing hose. Reservoir is durable, and well sealed. 70oz (2 liter bag)is great for most rides. Bag also has two small openings cut into the top so it can hang from your Velcro pack loops or can be suspended as a shower. Tube is clear, reservoir is semi-transparent, attachments are bright yellow making them easy to find. Taste great after many uses, no lingering rubbery stuff here. May not have the absolute greatest water flow but when you don't have to suck on the hose it really isn't an issue. Very thoughtful and well designed product.

Strengths: There are two types of drinkers- sippers and guzzlers. If you are a guzzler who doesn't want to be messing with water bottles during a race this product may be for you. During XC races I just could not quickly drink in enough water through my Camelbaks so I've been waiting a long time for someone to come out with a pressurized bladder like this. In fact, once upon a time I even wrote Camelbac saying they should invent this. The main strength of this product is that does feed you water without having to really draw in like you would with a non-pressurized bladder.
Weaknesses: The Moflow does have some limitations that make it a good product but not great product. First of all, there's the issue of water flow. For this product to be really great it needs to feed you water at about the rate of an ounce a second. It doesn't. In my semi-scientific tests the Moflow fed me a steady stream of water at the rate 1.75oz over a 5 second period. A Camelbak bladder, if you draw real fast, will give you about 1.9 oz over the same time. Furthermore, once the Moflow's pressure decreases you can expect a decrease in flow. With no pressure at all the Moflow will only give you about 1.5oz over a 5 second period. And this is drawing in a fast as I can. As a point of reference, drinking from a glass will give me a mouthful (2-2 1/2 oz) in only 2 seconds.
- The last 8oz of water are not pressure fed. You'll have to draw if you want these. You could use this as sort of a water level gauge to indicate you are getting low.
- The bite valve is ok but not great. A little too much bite pressure is required. I've been told this might be redesigned. I've had one bite valve fail on me. Fortunately, it comes with a spare.
- When pressurized fully that bladder makes your hydration system as stiff as a board. This might be a turn off to you although it doesn't both me.
- There are no measurement marks on the bladder. Future versions may have these though.
- The opening is on the smallish side. Standard ice tray ice cubes fit but barely.
If you are a anti-water bottle guzzler and you are in the market for a hydration bladder you may want to consider this one.
