    Default New Osprey LT Hydration System coming

    2.5 LITER HYDRAULICS™ LT RESERVOIRCOMING SPRING 2016 - HYDRATION

    Osprey’s Hydraulics™ LT 2.5L Reservoir by Hydrapak® is made for light and fast activities where weight and balance are critical. Twin-welded chevron baffles stabilize the water and maintain a flat profile. The streamlined design allows for easy loading into internal hydration sleeves. Thoughtful design makes filling, cleaning and most importantly staying hydrated on the trail easier than ever.

    Looks like a new manufacturer and a slide lock system instead of the leaky screw cap.

    Hydrapak is not a new bladder manufacturer. They've been around for several years at least, and make hydro systems for themselves, and sell to gear manufacturers for OEM use. I bought a Dakine pack with one of their 100oz bladders several years ago. It is lighter than a Camelbak 100oz bladder by 2oz. The slide top is nice for easy cleaning and filling. However, after a few months of use, the stock bite valve developed a steady drip. Not sure how this bladder is different than the one I have....aside from the twin chevron baffles, it looks very similar.

    These folks have been around a while. I can see a use for this it in some activities, though not for me personally. As an aside, I have not had a problem with an Osprey bladder cap leaking. I have seen people not pay attention to putting the screw cap on, allowing it to cross thread and not completely seat against the seal, however thats a user issue, not a maker issue.

    My nathan bladder has the slide top it's great for cleaning and drying. You can turn the thing inside out to clean it thoroughly and dry it. Makes for fast convenient filling too.

    I have the older version with the solid back, 3l. Used for GCNP treks, never had a leak at the cap, but weighted 11 oz, so it usually lays in the gear closet.

    Using an aquarium air pump to dry out bladders, bottles, etc is pretty effective
