100oz Hydration Bladder

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MI Written on August 23, 2013
Initially, the public should note that some Blackhawk products are not made in the US. For instance, this bladder was made in Vietnam. Also, it supposedly is "antimicrobial, however, I haven't even used it yet - just filled it 2 times and then hung it out to dry and there is something yellow (growing?) in the bladder. Blackhawk does not currently make a dryer for this bladder and the opening is too small to get your hand in to wipe/dry it out. I would recommend a Camelbak, it is made is the US, the opening is wider and that product has a lifetime warranty.
Cons: Made in Vietnam...
Would recommend: No

Deputy

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on September 6, 2012
I got this as a replacement for a bladder that leaked the first time I used it. This one does not leak but the water tastes so bad that I cant drink it. It gets worse the longer it stays in the bladder. Despite the good features, The bad taste makes it unusable so there is not much point in the rest.
Pros: Solid bladder, no leaks, qhick detach hose
Cons: horrible taste leeches into water making it undrinkable...
Would recommend: No

Water 2 Go

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, AZ Written on March 22, 2012
I purchased this water bladder to place in my survival bag that I keep in my car for emergencies. It works great, doesn't spill and easy to carry in my 5.11 Rush MOAB 10 bag.

The only complaint i have is the tube itself will make the water taste horrible. I thought it was the bag at first but realized it was the tube since it was only first drink that had a weird taste then the water would taste good again. I can live with that.
Pros: Easy to carry
Cons: Bad taste in the Tube...
Would recommend: Yes

Blackhawk Hydrastorm 100oz OEM replacement reservoir

Pros: Easy to clean with detachable mouthpiece and hose
Cons: Takes a bit of effort to draw from reservoir...
Would recommend: Yes

I like the previous Hydrastorm bladder better

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on May 2, 2011
Overall I really like this replacement to the one I've been using for almost 10yrs now, but the QD hose fittings are both good and bad. At first glance they are really nice for removing the hose, but the spring loaded stoppers make it REALLY hard to clean the hose fully and letting it dry is now a pain. The new style bite valve is really nice, but the shutoff could be easier to operate with one hand. And there is no dirt/dust cover for the bite valve...so once again you put your mouth on the dirtiest possible point to get water...this makes NO sense. That OTHER brand has this part right, but sadly their covers will not work here and I cannot seem to find a cover suitable for the Hydrastorm bite valve.

On the other hand the antimocrobial material is tough as nails and I like the anti-germ factor. Makes cleaning up easier and more reliable. Believe me when I say I've had some nasty reservoirs in the past! Sadly the new larger mouth won't fit through the hole in my original carrier, but I can figure a way to live with that. That being said, the new larger mouth is nice.
Pros: Anti-germ material, tough, larger mouth, QD fittings, bite valve style
Cons: QD fittings, no dust/dirt cover for bite valve...
Would recommend: Yes

Good Product

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on March 13, 2011
This water bladder is good. It is tough and functions just fine. The valve is nice so your tube doesn't leak all over you when moving. My only complaint is that the water always tastes funny. I am pretty sure that this is typical for these things. ...

Good hydration bladder

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on January 22, 2011
This 100oz hydration bladder from Blackhawk is highly dependable and I own a few of them. The bite valve on the tube is great as there are no knobs to twist to get the water flowing. The bite valve is thicker than other brands which prevents accidental dischage and it lasts longer. Much better than other big brands I have used.
Pros: Simple and effective...
