Strength:

Cheap and simple.

Weakness:

Leaks around filler cap, which is a real pain when riding in winter. Can't tell if back is covered with sweat or just leaking bladder. May donate it to charity.

If you have forearms like Popeye, you just might be able to close the filler cap tightly enough to get in a one hour ride without drenching the back of your Jersey. Drink fast!

Similar Products Used: None, but anxious to find one that works.

Strength:

Keeps cool, holds heaps, light weight, can almost forget it's there.

Weakness:

Outer straps don't hold onto things very well. I wouldn't risk leaving a banana in them.

Great thing,
Haven't tried it with gin.

Similar Products Used: Water bottles - get hot and don't hold much!

Strength:

cheap, light, does what it's supposed to

Weakness:

capacity

a good bargain for $19 at supergo. the 70 oz.
bladder holds 3 16.9 oz bottles of Poland Spring
water, so either my math skills are abysmal or the
capacity is overrated.

Strength:

light, can't tell its there sometimes, holds just enough for me.

Weakness:

holds just enough water, i think it's starting to leak a little bit.

cheap, good value, lightweight, good for mid-range length rides (about 30 miles?).

Matt   Cross-Country Rider [Aug 16, 1999]
Strength:

Cheap, not a waterbottle

Weakness:

Not a Camelback MULE

Picked this up for $20 at the LBS clearence sale. Went for a two hour ride the next day and drank all 70 oz. I don't think I've ever drank that much over a ride (you know, like you're supposed to. . . ). This is a pretty cheap system, but it's a great value.
