reservoirs / bladders

Which company makes the best bladders / reservoirs, looking to get a 1L. I'm thinking either dakine or camelbak. From my research it seems like people have problem with the small opening of the platypus when cleaning it.

Does any of these have the plastic taste, I know it used to be a problem but don't think it is anymore with any of the companies anymore. Please confirm.

Any recommendations / reviews if you have one of these is much appreciated.

Camelbak is really tried and tested and bla bla bla

I'm not a small guy and I've fallen on my camelbak more than a couple times and it's held up

Several times I thought for sure I was going to get up with a pack full of water, but never have.

My vote is for camelbak. Love mine

Camelbak as long it is one of the new Antidote bladders. I have one and they are awesome and have many accessories for them as well.

osprey makes nice packs, with plenty of small hydration options.

I put a Platypus Big Zip bladder in my pack (aftermarket). I have been extremely satisfied with the purchase. I would buy it again.

I bought the Omega Camelbak to use while deployed and it was amazing and the hose has detachable parts which make it simple to use for cleaning purposes.

I have 3 CamelBak bladders for 2 packs. 2 - 100ml "Antidote" /w quick release hoses, & 1 older 70 ml bladder. No plastic taste that I have noticed, and I definitely would have noticed if they did. I HATE THAT TASTE!!!

The Antidote model is a LOT easier to open and close. (Sometimes with my arthritis, the old model is a little tough to unscrew!)

I just purchased the 100 ml insulated bag. Hasn't been cold enough to give it a real test, but I can tell u if u use an "Un-Insulated" bladder & hose, the hose will freeze SOLID the first time you drink from it in sub freezing temps. And then the hose takes forever to thaw!

@newnew I bought my Camelbak at REI. It's a Seattle based company but I think they have stores all around the country. @buttertime93 Like chomps I have the 100oz antidote. It's a really good one that's held up after some giant falls directly on my back. No plastic taste and easy as hell to clean and dry out. But if you buy one, completely fill it and test it by applying some pressure to the full reservoir. A couple friends of mine had to exchange theirs for new ones because the quarter-turn cap leaked under pressure. Mine was fine though haha.
