- Hive mind-recommend me a hydration bladder that tastes ok..
I know exactly the horrid taste you describe but not everyone seem to be able to taste it. I bought every hydration bladder available and the only ones that haven’t got that taste is the ones from Nalgene that comes with Osprey bags (or buy just the bladders separately).Posted 4 years ago
I hate the taste of plastic so much that I have taken to using stainless steel bottles, which I love, but with Spain imminent I am thinking I need to consider weight and maybe should use a hydration bladder.Posted 4 years ago
I need 3 litre reservoir to fit my new wingnut adventure, any recommendations for a reservoir and hose system that tastes ok??
Thanks for the advice. I have had a camelback, and it did not taste nice. And someone did suggest the brand I bought. I don’t get what you are driving at. I’m just offering feedback on the bladder I bought, I also recognise that perhaps I have a sensitive set of taste buds. What exactly is your issue with any of this?Posted 4 years ago
It is not the black mould thing that other people do not like, so no I did not sterilise it(also hate the taste of milton). But I did rinse it, a lot, before use. The evoc one is defo hydrapak, has the hydrapak logo and:Posted 4 years ago

The only one I’ve ever noticed was a cheep one from Trespass.
Camelback seems fine and so was my old Lezyne one (no idea who made it, wasn’t a ziplock closing, similar, but no ‘zip’). Lezyne went mouldy quite quickly though, partialy my fault, but it did seem unusualy quick.
Camelback + freezer and dilute orange squash if it does taste of anything.Posted 4 years ago
There’s your issue – sterilising it will help remove any manufacturing residue – have to remember it’s plastic after all so is going to have “that taste” until you neutralise it.

Perhaps we could all line up for you with our full bladders and you could walk down the line, have a quick suck and tell us who tastes best.
I’m up for that as long as it’s Cinnamongirl, Adjustablewench, Emz, et al doing the tasting……….Posted 4 years ago
