Anyone heard of this?

I have never heard of the brand before, but it's a 100 oz. pack selling for twenty bucks. Does anyone know if this is a reliable product/brand or does the cheap price signify cheap quality?

Thats pricepoints in house brand.

I have never purchased anything 'sette' so I won't comment on the quality/durability.

i've never heard of it.
i would buy it just because it is cheap and if you dont like it, you can just trash it since it only cost you 20bucks.

Too late for me, I just bought a Camelback. I'm sure I paid a premium for the name.

i myself have been tempted by some of their items simply because it seems so cheap...namely the headset tool and hardtail frame...though i'm sure they are of lesser quality then the name brands..still they might perform adequately. let's hear some more opinions!

I would tend to agree with that from my experience with Nashbar/performance branded items.
