Quench your thirst for the outdoors with the CamelBak Antiodote Reservoir. This bladder holds all the water you need for a rigorous hike or day ride, and its low-profile fit minimizes awkward bulk. Its Quick Link system makes hose cleaning a snap, and the Quick-snap cap tightens in just a quarter turn so your precious fluids don't slosh out during a hot day on the trail.
This reservoir is 10x better than the old camelbak bladders. The screw lid is much more simple, making sealing the bladder with 3L of water in it an easier task. The quick link system makes threading the hose through various h2o ports of backpacks much easier that trying to shove the mouth piece through. Also, it allows you to have one bladder, but multiple hoses for different purposes. So, you can have an insulated one for winter sports, and a non insulated one for summer sports. the integrated drying system makes the bladder stay open to get airflow after washing. Point of advice, if you're not going to use your bladder for a while, empty out as much water as you can, roll it up into a gallon ziploc, and put it in the freezer. This prevents mold from growing in it. Flows nice, I always get the 3 L, even though it is heavier because i drink a lot. Definitely makes me drink more than a standard water bottle. I will always have one of these.
My wife and I each have one of these and have been using them heavily for over a year. We haven't had any issues with either reservoir - no leaks, no trouble with the cap, etc. The quick link is a nice feature, and I haven't had any issues with it jamming or leaking. The hose size fits perfectly with the outlet on our water filter (MSR) so you can refill the reservoir without having to pull it out of your pack. No issues with plastic taste or residual taste (although we usually only put water in them). The large cap makes cleaning and drying a snap
I have two 100oz, or 3L reservoirs, and I love them. I have both the antiodote pictured above and the mil spec one for my thermobak. I can't say it enough, I love this product. I drink a lot when I'm out, so its nice to have 3L ready to go when I need it. I haven't had a leak yet, and afterwards they're easy to clean. The angled mouth piece works great and the shut off makes sure I don't spill any when the going get rough. I highly recommend this product.
This is my 5th CamelBak reservoir and this is by far the best! I have used it for the past month for hiking. The latest rendition to the reservoir is the best thus far. I like being able to disconnect the tube to clean it and the lid closure is by far a vast improvement over the previous ones. Looking forward to using it for cycling and hiking!
I love my camelbak, I hear others have had problems with leaks, which on a hiking trip can be a serious problem in many ways but i've never had that problem. after several years of use i did have to replace the nozzle with one of their new(ish) ones with the yellow valve, but other than I still use it every chance I get
It holds a good amount of water, and works perfectly. I have taken it with me for hikes as well as ski runs. Water flows easily through it without too much effort, and seems to be quite sturdy in terms of holding up the water. Overall something handy to have for hydration purposes in the outdoors.
This is a great reservoir with an easy to use design. Works great in my Black Diamond Nitro backpack. Flows great, is easy to maintain and clean with the removable tube, and it never got any plastic taste after sitting in there for a long period time in the heat like I expected it might.
I've used this on countless backcountry adventures and I have never had a problem. I used to have an older CamelBak than was a pain in the butt to dry, but I really like the way this one has arms that keep the bladder wide open.
You can't go wrong with this.
The Antiodote reservoir is NOT the elongated shape show in photos- it is shorter/wider and will not fit into older Camelpak packs that are more elongated than many of the newer models.A challenge to find a way to identify which reservoir fits into which pack.
It is a great system. I have had zero problems with the bladder or hose with many seasons of abuse, although I seem to go through loads of bite valves. So much so that on long trips I usually take a spare.
Leaks under pressure. Heading out for weekend trip right now. I had my wife put her pack on to adjust the fit, and she says her back is getting wet. Pull out the bladder to check the lid, it's snug and there's droplets around the hose quick connect.
I had heard of other people having issues with the antidote leaking once pressure was applied, so I placed the bladder in the pack the night before to see if there was leakage. It didn't happen till the pack was being worn. So now I'm sitting here waiting for my wife's down sleeping bag to dry.
I've always been a fan of camelbak. But I have no faith in the new bladder.
I've owned two of these and under less than a year after buying them the Quick Link system broke while in my skiing backpack so all of my extra clothes/ down jacket got soaking wet. Yes, this happened twice! Just purchased the Osprey Packs Hydraulics, hope this will last me longer than the Camelbaks.
I would prefer to give this 2.5 stars...
My wife has used this bladder a couple years ago & it seemed to do the trick. It worked like it was made to do. One day though we filled it up and put it in her pack & later down the trail we noticed it was leaking. It seemed that the 'quick connect' attachment at the bottom was not attaching fully... we messed with it until we just gave up & ever since we have been bringing our trust Nalgene's...
This came in my Camelbak Mule last year. It has never leaked, but the seals are getting very work, so that it is becoming very difficult to connect and disconnect the hose and the fill port seal binds up sometimes. Mineral oil lubes them enough to work, but definitely a huge pain. I'm going to have to get a new one from Camelbak, but I don't want to be without it for too long. Other than that, I love it.
Camelbak has eliminated any innovation in bladder design by court crushing the competition. The twist top works well but what ever gimmick they tell you about design keeps this bladder in "narrow" shape and distributes the water evenly really doesn't hold up. The arms around the cap/opening are suppose to help keep the bladder "propt" open to help dry out the bladder have never really worked well for me. No leak though. No mold or discoloration.
This is a great reservoir. I love the arms for drying to hold the reservoir open. The quick snap system is great for switching out the hose. This bladder has been on 20+ miles of trail so far and I'm not disappointed. Great investment.
