Default Hydration Bladders

I'm testing out three...

1) Osprey 3L
2) Camelback Antidote 3L
3) Camelback Omega 3L

With a Kelty Redwing 50, I'd like to also find a smaller day pack that will accommodate a 100oz. 3L bladder.

What hydration bladder do you use and what pack do you have it paired with?

Geigerrig with a condor pack, I got tired of leaks and bad seals, plus the geigerrig can be pressurized so you can clean hands or wounds and give my dog a drink

I still have an old 2L Platypus similar to this:

http://www.amazon.com/Platypus-Platy...r+water+bottle

Before my backpacking trip this summer, I may have to get another, but this has lasted years and many miles.

I have an old REI daypack with padded hipbelt (can't find a name, sorry) with the bladder pocket vertically down the middle of the pack. OK for an easy to moderate day hike.

I've got a couple of Geigerrig bladders I use. They are pretty hard to destroy. The ability to pressurize them is a great Idea. I hooked up Sawyer mini filters in line to mine.

The Platypus bladders are bullet proof. Also, if you are still looking for a smaller day pack that accommodates a 3l you should take a look at the Kuiu Icon 1850 or the ultra 1800.

and a Kifaru duplex timberline 2

Its better to have the ability to have more water than not enough.

I use Geigerrig hydration bladder. It's pressurized so it's very easy to drink water when you need it.

I use a 3L Osprey bladder with a Osprey Stratos 24L day pack. A pretty good combo for the day hikes I've been on (up to 20 miles).
