Ultimate Source M.C. 3L Hydration
Outstanding bladder! Easy to fill, and fits in the the FILBE hydration pack with no issues. I use it when I do my through hikes and it has served me well so far. Connects easily to the aquamira frontier pro, when needed.

As far as the accessories go, I do like the rapid refill adapter when using water bottles, faucets, or a garden hose to refill the bladder. It is an option for refilling the bladder without having to remove it from a carrier, or pack. I do not use the magnetic clip, I use the ITW web dominators for drinking tube retention. My son does like the magnetic clip for his bladder though.

I would like to see a drinking tube cover that has more insulation similar to the tube covers that camelback uses. what I did with mine was I removed the tube cover from an old camelback and pulled it over the source drinking tube. But that is more of a personal preference than anything else.

You really can't go wrong with this bladder, water tastes great. Easy to clean out, easy to dry out. It can handle normal abuse, with in means of course. What I mean by that is if you take a sledge hammer to it its going to pop. But why would you do that? But you can feel safe that if your 75 lb ruck is thrown, falls, or is dropped from 5 feet , the bladder will not burst.

Worth the money
I've been using source for a few years now. I am really happy with them. I have them in all my packs and even on my body armor. I had water in one for 3 months. That water tasted about the same as it did the day it went in. Paired with a sawyer filter. I won't use anything else.

Source hands down!
I somehow discovered Source tactical 3 years ago and have been a happy customer since. I tell everyone about how superior they are to what is in the market so much that some people think I am paid. Well i'm not, but when you find something that is so much better than what you have had you just want to crow about it. I'm starting to see some brands are copying the features that Source has but I'm sticking with the brand I can trust to deliver all. In addition to the hydration systems, I own 3 of their packs and they are of the same high quality.

Best bladder on the market
This is the best bladder on the market. The nalgene-compatible opening works perfectly with filters, and the main opening makes it easy to clean and dry out, or scoop up water if you're using chemical purification. And no, bladder material doesn't impart a flavor like that of camelbaks.

Honestly, I'm lukewarm on the accessories, since the magnet isn't strong enough to hold the hose snug to the curve of my shoulder strap, and the UTA only helps if you fill your bladder from a tap, rather than wild water.

Thanks for your in-depth feedback, James! One detail: The UTA works also super fast and convenient with bottles, that is, refilling the hydration system from a bottled drink/water. I.e. picking one up at a rest-stop / aid-station in a competition and being able to re-fuel your hydration system without taking your pack off.
