Will this fit in the Gregory Optic 48 and Octal 45 hydration pouches? I just purchased the backpacks for our family.

In my experience with the outside exception of the largest reservoirs, all reservoirs fit all backpacks. This is my experience with six or seven backpacks and five or six hydration bladders
Will the 3-liter version be available any time soon?
Couole questions, hopefully you guys can answer! Does the pump have to be attached? Or can it be taken off and just use the mouthpiece and hose? How do people find it when it's sitting by your shoulder too. Is the pump too big and clunky? And third, when completely full do you find it makes a large backpack bulge vs one with an inline seam?
Thanks in advance!
Does anyone else have a problem with the mouth piece cap always popping off?
It is very difficult to place it without it popping right back off for some reason.. or am I doing something not right?

The mouthpiece fits when the pump is empty but as soon as its full of water the mouthpiece will not stay on. Maybe it's a pressure thing?
I'm getting an all-in price of $39.47 for the 3 liter on Amazon (and Honey tells me there is another vendor selling for $34.12) - which is less than the all in price on Massdrop. The high Massdrop shipping charges seem to kill the deal way too often. Bummer. Anyone else observed this?

I didn't see a price like that on Amazon.ca but that's ok, I'm comfortable with my price.

Price difference might be due to the .ca vs. .com? Hope you enjoy it and it serves your purpose!
Any reason besides $3 to get the 2L over the 3L? couldn't you just put less water in the 3L if you wanted to?

ah gotcha, thanks!
Funny enough I just ran into this same issue with a PFD that has a reservoir hook, my 3L camelbak peeks out like 5 inches, thought back to your comment and realized I need to get a 2L one for my PFD haha, thanks again.

I am very much a fan of this design. The handle allowed me to fill up my dog's bowl when hiking or clean my cup when camping. However the seal just below bite valve failed half way up Mt. Whitney. Duct-tape didn't fix it, but glue would have. Fortunately I always carry collapsible backup water bottles.
Update: within 48 hours of filling out the warranty information on their website, they mailed me a new hydration hose. It is impressive to see a company so responsive in honoring their warranty.

You may have convinced me to purchase my third bag. I have two 2liter bags I use for my Katadyn BeFree filter; one dirty w/filter & one clean potable. A 3L may be nice for longer trips.
Why is a bag to store water in so expensive? Or are they all priced around this range? :(

This is a fairly reasonable price for a very good quality hydration system. Most name-brand systems cost around $30, but this also includes the squeeze pump and an insulated hose. Darn good deal if this is what you're looking for.
I had a Camelbak and it always left a weird plastic taste to the water. Does water in this thing have a taste as well?

vinegar and baking soda are your friends.

I read some reviews and it left the plastic taste
Compared to well-known brands such as Camelbak, is this one better? It seems to have nice features that were not in the products of the mentioned brand, but the last time I purchased from Camelbak was many years ago...

Hydrapak is the best, imho, but other brands have upped their game a little in the last couple years. They started out with Dakine and Geigerrig, always been the same high quality material. Never had a leak or a burst out of the four I own & use...did have to get one replaced after I abused it with too much bleach (better to use non-bleach sterilizing tabs or other methods). The brand new 2017 MSR Dromlite bags are worth a look too if your needs are more for storage or gravity filtering rather than a straight up drinking bladder. Much prefer these slide-zip closures instead of screw lids. Easy, quick, and effective.

Great, thanks! You are the second person mentioning the MSR D. will check them :)
Will this product be availible once again?
$40.74 (post $7.75 shipping) on Massdrop vs. $41.47 on Amazon. I hate being that guy but I'd rather buy it through Amazon for that price difference. :\

Yeah, not everything is a win. That's how it goes sometimes. Caveat emptor.
TheNicNet
Agreed, unfortunately the shipping kills this one for me.
I currently use a Geigerrig system and love it (my dog actually prefers drinking hose-sprayed water than water from a bowl on the ground while camping/hiking), but I have been wishing for something that could function the same without the two separate hoses (one for water/one for air). This looks to be the answer. Excited to find out.

Follow-up: I'm really happy with this. Compatible with my Geigerrig filter. The hand pump produces a nice, fast stream of water. Different from the Geigerrig in that this only produces a stream when pumped, as opposed to the Geigerrig's system, where you first pump air into the reservoir to pressurize and then squeeze the mouthpiece for a constant stream of water. Overall, though, I think the Hydrapak Full Force will actually be more beneficial for my particular use, and the elimination of the second hose (that the Geigerrig method employs) is worth it to me.
Has anyone used one of these before? Does it actually push a high flow of water?
Would this be compatible with an inline water filter?

Hydrapack makes geigerrig bladders and the connections look the same, it should work.

I actually sent an email to customer service and they confirmed that this can in fact be used with an inline filter.
