    Need hydration info

    This is not a health and fitness issue but more of a where to buy issue.

    It seems after 9 good years I have finally wore out the bladder in my pack. Well, tore a hole actually. Anyways, I now need to replace the bladder but it seems no one carries the same size bladder. I had a 140oz (or 4L) bladder and would like the same or a 5L since I use the pack for more then just cycling.

    Does anyone know where I could find a replacement bladder of the same size or bigger that has a drink hose attachment?

    The pack is a Crank 'N Tanx "Epic" but I can find no info on it anywhere.

    Cheers

    Welp, I found my bladder.

    The pack is made by Ultimate Direction and they are still in business if you are looking for a larger reservoir. The bladder is actually 128oz or 3.8L but they are out of stock until mid December.

    I also found some reservoirs by MSR that come in 2L, 4L and 6L and can be used in a pack with the optional hydration kit.

    I realize there are no responses and I may very well be talking to myself once again but perhaps the info will help someone.

    9 years is a very long time. This is a camel-back? I would think it would need replacing sooner than 9 years.

    MRS made bladders from cordura and the hose has a poly liner in it.

    I took good care of the reservoir and the pack it self keep it from tearing when I would bail.
    It was a pack made by Ultimate Direction that I bought from SuperGo in '98 for 20$. Now if I could only find another deal like that I would be set. I have never used a Camelback, I will in a few days though, just ordered up a new Mayhem pack along with a new bladder for the old pack.

    Camelbaks are nice. Not to pricey.
