    Hydration pack's- I need Info.

    Hello everyone, Last year for Christmas, I got a hydration pack (Platypus) and I found that I don't like the bladder, it is a screw top, and it always seem's to leak, I was wondering if it would be possible to use a Camelback bladder instead. It is a 2 liter bladder, and I like the pack itsself, just don't like the bladder, also sometimes the mouthpiece leaks also, I know i can get a CB, mouthpiece for it, but it may not fit. Help

    I don't know.

    But if you do a search for camelbak I'm sure you'll come up with at least a dozen threads on the topic. Maybe someone else has mentioned it.

    I dont see why not.. I've been using my old camelbak bladder in my blackburn hydrasack fro about a year now. Blackburns valve is too complicated and very fragile.

    There's no reason that you couldn't use a Camelbak bladder other than fit.
    Drink shellac. It'll kill you, but MAN, WHAT A FINISH!!

    If you do go for a new bladder, check out the ones with the large opening. It makes for much easier cleaning.

    YOU have a barbie water-bottle? No way!! The NEXT hydration pack is kinda like a zip-lock bag with a straw, in a backpack.
    I have a winnie-the-pooh helmet..How about you?
    Booyah!!

    NEXT hydration pack
    I've seen them.

    Funny thing: They look exactly like my blackburn hydrasack. probably made by the same people.

    Brisco County Jr.: Yeah, but I did not hit the deputy.
