Kriega 3 Liter Hydrapak + Tube
Standard Kriega....always excellent
I'll admit it, I am a Kriega fanboy. It's a $50 hydration bladder but I don't mind paying for quality and ease of use. It integrates into my R20 seamlessly (w/Kriega back protector), construction is solid and maintenance is easy (reversible). Also, water stayed cool surprisingly long for being South FL.
It comes with everything you need so it's basic plug and play. I rinsed it out upon opening, started using it and had no funny taste.

I bought this to slide into my Kriega R-20 backpack. I'm glad I did. Part of the reason for buying the pack was to have a small hydration pack to wear while I explore on my Multistrada. This is it.
I find it to be much easier to use than my CamelBak bladder and have a beefier hose. My Osprey bladder is easier to fill as it is rigid, but it is not as flexible.
it's a simple, beefy system that works pretty well. The mouth piece cap isn't the easiest to use one handed with a glove, but it does stay closed. I do worry that the cap will come off if not properly secured.

Another great Kriega product that integrates with my R35 Backpack!
Great for long highway cruises! You will most likely use the bathroom more than you have to refill this thing! Anyways a great hydrapak to keep you hydrated on those long road trips! Works great in my Kriega R35 Backpack!

Does what it's supposed to do and fits well in the backpack

Used in a Kreiga r25 backpack. works well.
I used this in my Kreiga r25 pack during a week-long tour. Functioned great. The only issue is finding a place to secure the tube near your neck so it isn't flopping around like some alien appendage. I fashioned a little hook out of stiff wire and attached it to my backpack strap, you want one-hand operation obviously.

Great product, not quite perfect for my application
I purchased the Hydrapak to fit my Kriega R30 backpack. It fits easily and routing the hose is simple, but the velcro loop that is provided to secure the hose to the backpack strap is not wide enough for the R30's strap. I believe it was meant to fit one of the smaller Kriega packs. For now I just tuck the end of the hose under the chest clips, but I plan on making my own velcro loop to fix this shortfall. I do really like the Hydrapak design compared to a Camelbak. It has a much wider opening for filling and can be turned inside-out for cleaning. The bite valve works great, and I found that the hose is just the right length for me. The on-off valve isn't quite as user friendly as a Camelbak but I never turn it off, as it doesn't leak.

Works every time and takes abuse
I use the hydro liner on Dirt Bike, Mountain Bike and street bike rides. The liner goes in the freezer the night before a hot desert ride and it works every time. I have hit cactus, trees and untold bushes without any visible damage to the unit. No regrets purchasing this item. Thanks Revzilla.

No more screwing around -- with closures that is!
I've been using Hydra-paks for years. They stack up so much better against the C*baks which I've used, but for the most sit un-used in my closet. The design of the Hydra-pak puts the emphasis on ease of use not only from the operational aspects such as a free-flowing easy bite valve but also to it's administrative functions such as a quick disconnect on the drink hose and an easy fill slide closure that allows filling from an ice machine. Overall, very well thought out. It is also bombproof as well. Watch the videos out there of these being run over by forklift trucks. You can't do that with a C*-bak.
