Reservoir started leaking through the zip after 2 days. It had not been punctured, or mistreated, and I still cannot find the problem. I will return it. Picture yourself at the second pitch belay with your backpack soaking wet and no water left. Platypus is just the cheap brand for reservoirs, go with Camelback.

I have several Platypus products and like them all. The original bite valve was a little restrictive, but that has been remedied. Best for putting in the floating top pocket of a large pack or in a special hydration pocket of a pack. Don't have a Camelbak, so I don't know how the two compare.

Great water resevoir. Very durable. I have a lowe alpine pack with water bladder pocket for a 2 liter resevoir. The big zip 3 however is the same shape as a 2 liter bladder except taller. So it just sticks out the top of the pocket by a couple inches and i have 3 liters of water instead of 2. At first i was weaty about the zip lock opening but after a couple of months of climbing and trhowing my pack around it has yet to open when i didn't want it to.
