Camelbak alternatives?

Recommended Posts

Wondering if anyone has any good suggestions for alternatives to Camelbak?

 

(I want a flatwater kayaking drinking solution along the lines of camelbak, but never been that impressed by camelbak itself - bit too 'drinking through a narrow straw', and never convinced they're truly cleanable - also think they're a bit overpriced)

I've had a camelbak for years, they can cleaned really well with the right tools. They sell a brush for the drinking tube and you can get your hand inside with a brush for the main compartment

 

Good piece of kit in my experience

Have both camelbak and Geigerrig. Haven't used camelbak since using the Geigerrig. The optional in line filter on the Geigerrig is great for long trips filling on the go.

Geigerrig for me easy to use goes in the dishwasher to clean and the pressurized system is good and very useful and makes fitting a filter for when you load with Dirty water easy to get out no waiting hrs for gravity or sitting on teh bladder

Iv had camel back the original one is good but found it hard to clean, now I use a bulldog equivalent from ukmc-pro they come in different colours and size bladders and they have molle type attachment to attach anything else you may want to lug around ! Hope some of this helps...
