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.

Flexible, but needs options of tube length
I like the concept of this, but often choose other options because the tube length is weird. It always seems like I have too much hose with both hoses, and not enough with just the 6" section on the adapter.

It would get a lot more use if there was a cut to length hose kit, or at least some options for length, so I could have the right setup for whichever pack I'm using.
