Does the Job
I had this connected to a standard 1L Nalgene bottle for a series of recent field exercises recently. No leaks!

PROs:
* It completely breaks down for cleaning. Being able to take the valve apart is a great feature.
* Adaptability. While I've only connected the device to a 1L Nalgene, having the option to connect to multiple bottle sizes and types (particularly standard disposable bottles) is a huge selling point.

CONs
* No instructions in the package. I had to seek out a 3rd party YouTube video to figure out how to operate the valve. It's not difficult, but for someone used to the CamelBak bite valve, there is an extra step involved that was not intuitive to me.
* Limited choice of hose length. This was not a significant barrier of use for me, but it could cause issues depending on your set up.

OVERALL:
Great product vaIue. I would highly recommend this product to anyone seeking an alternative to a water bladder.

NEXT GENERATION IMPROVEMENTS
Include an adapter for US standard issue canteens.

Perfection!
I got this for my paintball rig but can see that this will go good on anything. Plate carrier, molle vest, battle belt, you name it. It’ll fit wherever you want. Top notch, as always, from Source, the only bladder system I will use! Keep up the good work!

3 Day Assault, Mystery Ranch
Fits great into a 3 Day Assault Mystery Ranch pack! Tough exterior design and material choice allowed for the Source 3L Hydration to take on miles of dismounted maneuver through heavily vegetated and rocky terrain without issue. The Water source maintained its low-profile configuration and doesn't seem to show any signs of failure or potential in the future.

Spot on
I only needed a small bladder for short distance runs and no where else (that I can find) sells a good canteen.

This bladder is really well made, from the material to the locking mechanism.

I will definitely recommend these to my friends and be buying more in the future.

Please make a smaller version
I would love to see this as a smaller 1.5 to 2L 8x10 pack that I can slip right into where my hard armor plates are supposed to go.

Thank you for your feedback, we suggest to take a look also at our standalone hydration systems that come in different sizes and shapes. In any case our developers take all feedback in consideration going forward.

Fantastic backpack!
I've used this pack extensively since I purchased it 2 years ago and I must say it is an excellent backpack. I've carried 35 kg for 5 days without any issues at all, the weight distribution is great and feels really solid.

I will be heading out on 27-day trip in a few weeks and this pack will be there to see me through.

My only issue is that there are no pockets on the belt and the adjustment straps make it hard to fit your own pouches, but it is still without a doubt the best backpack I've owned.

The Newly Coverted
I used to be a camelback user until source tactical was recommended to me. I gave their products a try and now I have converted over 100%. I love their products And will continue to recommend them to all my friends

handy and portable
clean and nice cut and tailorwork makes it very easy to attach any accessory of molle. the specialized canteen cap is compatible to most flasks and bottles. and for a low capacity canteen, it comes handy for most cases scenarios

Tactical 3L Hydration Pack
Very well designed and everything works great with lots of clever features. I have several Source bladders, both 2L and 3L. The only thing I would like included with this pack is the ability to change an empty bladder for a full one. Because you have to unscrew the lid it is impossible to put a full replacement bladder in this pack. If you are vehicle mounted and drinking from this pack it is likely that you would have several full spare bladders to exchange for the empty bladders. Great product, bullet proof!

Hi and thanks for your feedback, our developers will take it into consideration! For the time being, for rapid refills on the move we suggest you take a look at our UTA Rapid Refill Adapter. No need to remove the bladder, as you can easily refill through the drinking tube. 
Very good product
A very good product for the price, the UTA Rapid Refill Adapter is very usefull when your pack is stuck in your backpack to fill it up. It don't take much space and you can last 1 or 2 day of hiking with sun easily.

Excellent piece of kit
This is a thoroughly excellent product, and excellent for low profile usage. The Tap-Adapter is really well designed and made, and the overall layout of the bladder makes it great for use with a plate or armor carrier.

The 3L size provides long-term hydration and the UTA allows you to refill from bottles or taps, without having to access the bladder itself. This is great, since you can refill without removing your armor or needing a buddy.

I would definitely recommend this, or a similar bladder in an appropriate form factor.

High Quality, Reasonable Price
This 2L bladder is a very good option for those who enjoy CCE or US Woodland patterns. It blends nicely with both, and is low profile and well insulated.

There are some cons, such as not being able to effectively fill the entire bladder due to the design of the opening, there's always an air bubble at the top, but it's not the end of the world. You just have to remember to get the air out so it doesn't slosh.

Overall a great addition to any CCE or Woodland setups, and a solid piece of kit. I would prefer one of the quick-change heads on it, but that's not a necessity.

Thank you for your feedback, good to hear you appreciate SOURCE. With any bladder, we recommend turning it upside down after filling and sucking any remaining air out. That way sloshing is avoided, as stated in your review.

End User Based
I bought this to use as the female end of another water system so I could use my Source hose from my 2L Storm and extend the existing hose by another 2 feet. Enabled me to put the big bladder in my ruck and easily switch between the two when I drop the ruck and maintain my armor.

Source is the way to go for standard size water carriers. Makes camelback look like walmart special.

Mieux que la poche classique
Mieux que la poche 3 L normale mais encore trop "gonflée". Il faudrait supprimer le remplissage par le bouchon à vis et ne laisser que la possibilité par le zip ou le tuyau. 
--
Better than the normal 3 L pocket but still too "bulky". Would be better to remove the screw cap and leave only the possibility by zip or tube.

Merci pour votre avis! Si vous n'avez pas besoin du bouchon, il y a toujours les réservoirs WLPS ou ILPS!

Thank you for your feedback: if you don't need the screw cap there is always our WLPS or ILPS bladders with Wideslide opening only.

Pratico e leggero
Ho ricevuto questo articolo come regalo da parte di Source (GRAZIE!) e lo utilizzo spesso durante le escursioni, specialmente in quelle estive dove l'acqua non deve mai mancare.
Lo trovo molto pratico e perfettamente configurabile in altezza; utilissimo anche il gancio in basso, io lo utilizzo per agganciare un marsupio fotografico.
