No leaks, satisfied with the bladder. However, I'd like to suggest to the R&D team to include a cap for the bite valve, covering it against sweat and dust. Also, would be good to see a detachable (screw/clip-on mechanism) hose, makes the cleaning/drying process easier.
I needed two of these; one for my son and one for me for our MTB outings. This would have cost me an arm and a leg if I'd bought one of the better known brands. These do exactly what we need at a fraction of the cost. Easy to use and well made too.
Excellent value and for me important that very easy to clean
After years of using bladders with a fill cap on the front, I can't believe how much better designed this product is. Easy to fill/re-fill and NO MORE LEAKS!
Valve seems to need a lot of sucking to draw the water through, but once flowing it is fine.
Easy slide top opening
Valve seems to need lots of suck to draw water
it is an amazing bladder that was perfect but the part where the black part where the hose attaches to bladder has came away causing all the water to leak out all over me mid ride
every thing about it
it broke after 5 ish months of use
Easy simple system - no gimmicks
Doesn't drip or spill
Hard to open drinking tube initially
Really good bit of kit at a fraction of the price of some other well known brands!
Price and functionality

Packing was very good. Initial feel was very good however the head (from where u suck water) started leaking post 2-3 rides and soon i found i lost the cap above head was lost. What a waste!
Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. Apologies for the bad experience. If you have lost just the blue end of the nozzle its the bite piece and you can buy a replacement because the bite has to be replaced at regular intervals. If you have lost the entire nozzle the whole bladder has to be replaced. I remain available for more questions.
Bought the product 2 weeks ago. The bite valve is not working and water is not flowing through the pipe.
Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. The blue bit on the nozzle is called the bite. You will have to bite the valve for the water to flow. If even this does not work you can visit the closest Decathlon store and ask for a replacement I remain available for more questions.
