Klim Hydrapak Reservoir
Does the job nicely.
I have been using it in my Klim Badlands jacket. It fits very nicely and works well. The bit is tough and has not deteriorated with my sharp teeth. The main thing is to remember to keep water in it and remember to keep sipping. It does its job.

Easily to fill and clean, with detachable drinking tube.
I really love the tube removal feature. I found it much easier to route the drink tube through my jacket once removed from the bladder. Especially once the bladder is filled. Then refills are a snap. Remove the bladder from the tube, take out only the bladder. Fill up then re-attach. Simple!

You need this on very hot days to keep hydrated if you do not want to stop for a water break. Actually I prefer stopping after an hour to hour and a half of riding in 90 plus heat.
However this item does what is was intended and appears to be very well made. Wide opening makes it easy to put in ice.

I purchased the backpack "fuel cell" (hydration bag) two years ago to keep me from getting dehydrated on long rides two years ago. The original bag got a little too "grungy" to get perfectly clean due to me not cleaning well enough last fall. Got a new bag kit to replace it. The KLIM hydration back pack is very good and easy to use. I would recommend it for anyone who wants to keep themselves properly hydrated while riding their motorcycle.

The hydration bladder while can hold upto 3liters it can be uncomfortable to wear unless you have a designated pack to put it in. I've been using my klim badlands jacket which is fine if your using about half of the capacity. The ease of filling and cleaning with the large opening along the back prove to be much better than the others brands.

One of the best hydration bladders on the market.
The best features about this bladder design, is that it is the easiest to fill and clean. I have a bunch of Camel-bak bladders, all of which are no longer in use. The Camel-bak bladders have a big and bulky cap that can be difficult to remove and install. The design of the Klim bladder has given me no hassles. The Camel-bak design is more difficult to clean. Camel-bak sells a big "bottle brush" to get inside and scrub out the bladder. The Klim can easily be turned inside-out and thoroughly washed.

Nice pack, but not for Badlands Pro Jacket
I bought this pack to go in my Badlands Pro Jacket. Filled it up and loaded it up, it was so uncomfortable i did not use it. It would most likely be okay with 1.5 liters or less. I will just use it as a back-up.

A good place to keep your water.
I had the pack from a Leatt H2 hydration system, but the bladder and hose were gone. This Klim unit slipped in and worked perfectly.
The material is rubbery and tough and resists punctures. The bladder itself is really easy to clean, because of the wide mouth opening at the top. Most bladders have to be cleaned with chemicals or fiddly brushes, but this one eliminates that worry. If you're the kind of person who "accidentally" forgets to empty and dry your bladder after using it, I'd recommend getting this one.
The valve is good, but not great. I've only used it twice, but I'm starting to get the hang of it. Once you figure out how to hold it between your teeth, it's easy to get good water flow.
