Perfect fit!
I replaced the original twist &pull valve, it would get jammed in the closed position. the bite valve fits great & works reliably, especially in the cold. this is a quality piece from Source!

Hi Anthony, happy you found the Helix Valve works well for you. The choice of drinking valve is a matter of personal preference we learned from experience. If you feel your Storm wasn't functioning properly you can always get in touch with Customer Service to get assistance. Thanks for your feedback!

This is the Best Hydration Pack & Bladder You will ever purchase!
I purchased the Tactical 3L Hydration pack in 2014 after recommendations from soldier friends returning from Afghanistan and Iraq. The pack is first class and fits on many backpacks as well as plate carriers. The bladder, tubing, bite valve are all top notch. I have had zero issues with mold, slime, etc. growing in or on the bladder or tubing. I have used the pack for 3+ years on all different types of outdoor activities and couldn't be happier. The UTA adapter is well worth the money and gives me all types of options for refilling the bladder. I have gotten rid of all of my CamelBak, Platypus and Osprey water bladder packs. Source is all I will ever buy...

Great Product
I got this to update an older source bladder. It works great and is the fastest way to fill your hydration system

practical
this item is very practical, especially if you bladder is hard to get in and out of your pack. Not an absolute must have but worth to have to speed things up.

Almost the best
I have several hydrators from Source and they are better than others I had, but in this hydrator I do not like Storm Push-Pull, I would like to have Helix Bite Valve, like a conventional hydrator, I'm much more used to it. Apparently I will buy separately. Otherwise, this is the best thing on the market!

Hi Vladimir, thanks for your feedback, we're happy to hear you appreciate our products! There's a lot to be said about Storm vs Helix Drinking Valve, in the end it's very much a personal choice and dependent on the type of mission/adventure you're on.

The best hydration system I,ve had
Source hydration system repalced all my previous systems.
Actually I have three WPX 3L, one Kangaroo 1L and one WLPS Low Profile 3L, that I use for MTB, hiking and Softair.
Source are only hydration system that don't release taste.
I have also an Assault 20L Hydration Cargo Pack that is perfect to one day tours.
Very good materials.

Superb hydration solution
I have two of these bladders, one in each of my packs. They are incredibly durable and easy to refill, even with the bladder still inside a hydration pouch. The mouthpiece and cap are easy to use one handed and there is no strange flavor from the bladder. About to buy a third 3L low profile for another pack of mine A+ product.

Great hydration setup for plate carrier cummerbund
I was looking for a hydration carrier that would not clutter up the back of my PC. This works perfect on the cummerbund under the arm. the bite valve and filling attachment is great. I really like this setup but one issue I have had is with leakage from the cap on the bladder, other than that the quality is great.

Hi James please get in touch with our Customer Service if you feel your product was not 100% ok on delivery! Leakage should definitely not be an issue with any SOURCE Hydration System. Thanks for your feedback!

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.

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.

An excellent hydration system
I have been using this for about a year without issue and in fact, have purchased 3 more for rest of my family. This bladder is industrial strength and easy to clean. Works great in the summer and fall in the northeastern US. I use the Tube Insulator from Source Outdoor in the winter as the tube/ bite valve freezes in very cold winter conditions here. Recently purchased the Universal Tube Adapter (UTA) that I plan to pare with a Katadyn BeFree water filter hydrapak to conveniently refill the bladder without having to remove it from my pack.

The best valve
The higher flow is worth the minor hassle of a push/pull. The locking mechanism isn't my favorite since it's easy to spin the mouthpiece without locking or unlocking it, but you only need to lock it for shipping or transport. Typically, closing the valve and putting the dust cap on is more than secure enough.

Have it, tried it, never use it.
The magnet isn't strong enough to hold stiff source tactical hoses snug to the curve of my shoulder strap.

Just use a grimlock, carabiner, or bungee tie and accept that the rest of the hose will stick out a bit. The stiff hoses generally stay out of the way anyhow.

Hi James, thanks for your feedback, just one remark from our developers: the Magnetic Clip is designed to hold the drinking valve in place, to provide easy one-hand access whenever you want a sip, no dealing with clips and hooks and stuff. It's not designed for the routing of the drinking tube itself from the pack forward. 
By Jean-Francois V. | 03/23/2017
Tres utile !!
Très utile pour garder le tuyau toujours à portée de main sans qu'il ne soit gênant dans les mouvements, dans la marche. Part contre attention de ne pas perdre le clip .. déjà perdu une fois ...

Better than CamelBak and Pig
Received mine from Israel promptly and wow can I say that this is by far the best low-pro pouch out here. Perhaps you may fine smaller ones out there but the size, quality, and fact that this thing carries 3L of water is absolutely perfect for guys with minimalistic plate carriers as well as guys running a ruck or large pack on top of it. Quick removal tabs are a nice touch as well, buy now and save your money from making a mistake elsewhere.

Very convenient tool
This little device let's you keep your bladder in your pack when refilling, which is not only convenient but also very expedient. I use this attached to my personal water filter to fill the bladder directly with clean water without ever taking my pack off. Awesome!

High quality
Very impressed with this valve. I have been searching for a no bite valve for some time and this one meets all my needs. I also appreciate that it is a color that blends well with my camouflage.

Source Replacement Tube
I really like that the plastic tube does not have the plastic taste that so often happens from inferior quality products. The insulation around the tube also works great for late season hunts in the mountains in Montana where I live and also any winter activities that I do.
