Hydration Packs 28-Mar-2014 At 10:41:17 AM Sabu
In my experience I've found the quality of the bag itself to be hardly worth any consideration compared to the quality of the hydration bladder. Look for a good quality bladder first and foremost - many of them come with a backpack of varying sizes that will do the job. Consider things like how it opens for refilling - sounds simple but some of them can be a real bitch to get sealed. Others have crappy material that will weaken with flexing and eventually fail. Being able to easily dry it out is also good as that will avoid any build up of gunk.

My current one is a 2L Source bladder from MD's which has an easy sealing system and the bag fully opens up from the top which is great for refills/airing/drying. I would definitely recommend the brand/style.
