Thought it better to start a new thread for discussions on this one;

Looking at getting some recommendations, along with suggested retailers and prices.
What do you use?

Recommendations on the following:
- Capacity - what's a good size to go for? 2,5l seems good
- Brand - I only know Camelback, but they are pricey. Getting what you pay for, or are there cheaper options?
- Extra storage - do you buy one with storage for tools and things, or suggest a bumbag for that?

Any other suggestions surrounding this topic would be appreciated.

Mr price sports. R300 for tripper and bladder. extra bladders are R99. Never had an issue with any of their products. lasts about 2 years ridding almost every weekend.

This seems more like my kind of price, I'll check it out tomorrow. Camelbak ones start around R800.
Thanks!

check ther bladders out as they have 2 types. the one with the pull open mouthpiece is to be avoided. it tends to leak after some time, the one that is a copy of the hydrapak, the twist open one is bullet proof.

just dont EVER forget clean vodka in it on race day.
