    I suspect plastic flavoured water is unhealthy, so ive stopped using my camelbak and use a hard bottle. I would prefer a backpack if a non plastic flavoured version is available, anyone know of one?

    My Hydrapak bladder doesn’t seem to taste of anything. Cheap compared to buying a whole new pack too.

    I suspect you’re over thinking it.

    That said, the Source bladders are easily the best I’ve used for not flavouring the liquid.

    When new I think this is true but after a few uses and if kept in the freezer and never washed out with anything ‘tasty’ they loose that plaggy taste IME

    Mine does. How old is yours? Mine is about 5 years old. You only notice at the end of the bag. Then its unmissable.

    Clean it with Milton, you’ll soon miss the taste of plastic.

    Mines at least 5 years old, I think near 7.

    At that age I’d replace it with another camelbak to be honest.

    I might try the source brand, they claim to be taste free , cheers!

    I’ve taken to dropping a High5 tablet into my Hydrapak as it always tastes a bit plastic (not a problem with my Osprey bladder though).

    It’s fluid – gerrit downyer 😀

    You can always add some Robinson’s to it – wufters.

    Haha I like your style motozulu, but I try to minimise unnatural things entering by body. 😯
