I've owned several camel backs before this one and personally like the brand, so I was rather biased to purchase another. I recently undertook a trip over spring break from Missouri to Utah and back. Enjoy my results.
This bladder has now been through 2985.13 miles, a blown clutch on the way back in Kansas, hikes in Arches, Zion and the Grand Canyon. Road days where it was full of water in my pack and jammed in the back of my car to Ship Rock, Four Corners, Mesa Verde, through Vail Pass (14,000 elevation difference from Missouri and snow covered roads at Vail Pass--which we got stuck at for 6 hours due to weather--the roads were closed and chain laws were enforced. In a rwd 5 speed 4 cylinder SUV with highway tread tires... that's bad news).
Look, before I get carried away at how awesome the trip was. Just buy this. It's quality made, backed by a warranty, insulates regardless of the weather gradient, seams stayed together in the pack, not ONE leak happened. And most of all, my water was cold. And after all that's it's entire purpose right? To hold water for you and keep it cold (or hot?). And it did that very well.
Bottom line: Yes I would buy it again, yes I would recommend it to a friend, and yes it held up to some beatings.
They aren't fantastic, but they haven't broken yet either.
I wear them every day and they fit my big ol' head perfectly fine. Typically I bend sunglasses because of my big head but these fit good. Again, they aren't Raybans, but if you're looking for disposable sunglasses that you'll get good use out of for a year or so look no further.
