fantastic service as always. The staff in your Witney store are outstanding, helpful friendly and made shopping in the store great.
We have the choice of many outdoor shops but choose Witney due to the staff and the prices.
Both my husband and I are competing in Marathon Des sables in 2014 so we will be regulars over the next 18 months.
This is my first hydration system bought to fit a cycling backpack I bought from another company. It fits well, and has worked fine so far once I worked out the best way to fill it. The tap is stiff at first but is easing off with use. Rinsed it out well with hot water before use to get rid of plastic taste which has worked.
This product was a very good and useful concept and was much easier to hydrate with going up a mountain however I found it a lot of effort to suck the water out and only a little came out at a time, so in that sense it was probably easier to stop and pull out a bottle.
I am climbing Kilimanjaro for charity this summer and need one of these. When i did a previous walk, I failed to drink enough water and felt very ill and dehydrated. I am yet to use this product, but I know it will make a huge difference.
I found it difficult to screw the cap on without it leaking until i found there was a definite knack to it and now it is fine. i would also like something to attach the tube to the rucsack so it doesn't trail down
This is the perfect sack for a short hike around or i also use it in my backpack so i always have a little water with me. Make sure you wash it a couple of times before use to get rid of the plastic taste.
make sure you give a good clean before actual use as the taste can be a bit rubbery. But the 2L lasted me foe a 4 hour bike ride. No leakage from this product.
I havent used one of these before but cant wait to try it out just hope the taste of plastic doesnt last long I been told to put squash in it at first!
got two for the price of one so excellent price however water tastes a bit plastic hopefully this will go after a few uses.
the open/close valve is incredibly fiddly and difficult to use, especially if you hands are cold in extreme conditions.
This system has a really long hose so can fit some of the larger backpacks and still have access without a struggle.
Valve tastes funny, and often leaks. When you fill it fully, it is difficult to use the valve or "nipple"
Just what I need to provide fluid on the go during long walks without delays 'unpacking' the backpack.
Does everything it needs to do. Easy to fill, easy to use and easy to clean, great for everyday trips.
Makes the water taste horrible.
On Off control difficult to operate and leakes air into the pipe.
Works perfectly, no leaks - would recommend to anyone who has a Hydration System 'ready' backpack.
I wouldn't have survived without this, this product is excellent and definitely worth the money.
The product looks good and fits my rucksack very well but I have not yet had a chance to use it.
Taps a little stiff - but that may be an advantage in the end!
Generally very good.
Leaked straighte away and had to be retured. not bonded together properly.
