Strengths:    Cheap

Weaknesses:    Leaks

Bottom Line:   
Worthless. Put about 80 oz in it. Most of it leaked all over my back the first 30 minutes of riding. This was it's first use. Very low flow valve like the others stated. It's going in the trash. Next time i'll spend a few more bucks on a camelbak bladder.

Strengths:    Carry a lot of water for not a lot of coin.

Weaknesses:    Low-flow bite valve, difficulty screwing the cap securely back in place, hose leaks at where it attaches to bladder,

Bottom Line:   
Fist let me just say, I've purchased many many Sette items including a full bike and this is the first item I have not liked. This was purchased as a complete system (bladder + pack). On the bladder, even though the cap has very large threads, it is still somehow hard a frustrating to screw it in place correctly and with a water-tight seal. Also, water was seeping out from where the hose attached to the bladder but two small zip-ties fixed that.

The pack itself is also somewhat poorly designed. First of all, the bladder must be completely removed to fill and stuffing it all back in can get a little cumbersome. Also, with the bladder completely filled the pack is unable to be closed. These are minor complaints and worth putting up with on a $20 100oz hydration pack.

Strengths:    100 oz. capacity, large fill opening accommodates ice cubes easily, cheap

Weaknesses:    Bite valve is terrible. Very little water flow, and plenty of added air.

Bottom Line:   
If you plan on swapping out the bite valve immediately, then this bladder is a reasonable choice. It's still cheap even if you have to buy another bite valve.
