Fits 5.11 Rush 12
20 people found this helpful.
I am using this in my 5.11 Rush 12 pack. The pack lists bladders up to 70 oz, but this 100oz one fits fairly well. The coyote color of the tube sheath matches the coyote webbing on my sandstone pack perfectly. I am using the pack as an urban commute pack and I am using the bladder as a disposable plastic water bottle replacement – a “green” solution you might say. I fill it with filtered water at home and have left it in the bladder for days with no note of fouling or other problems unlike carrying a water bottle. I think this is the military version of Sources bladder, but I find it to be very useful for my civilian needs as well and would recommend to anyone to replace their daily bottle of Evian or Fiji with one of these. It should pay for itself in no time.
Near perfect 3L hydration system

When I received this bag, I was pleasantly surprised at the little details I hadn’t given much thought to, but was always annoyed/wary of with other systems. The system can be broken down in to three portions, so I’ll cover those individually.
No lie, these things are tough as nails.

I purchased this as a requirement for a 10 hour athletic event. Part of the event (go ruck.com, if you are curious) was to carry a bundle of bricks in a ruck sack. The very same ruck sack that this water bladder would be in. After all was said and done, being tossed about with 40lbs of brick, laid on, dropped without care, and otherwise abused, this water bladder survived where others (looking at you, camel pack) did not. Playful ribbing aside, this is an absolute beast of a bladder, and easy to fill/clean to boot.
This thing feels bomb-proof!

What an amazing bladder! Just got this today in the 3L model and I love it. I’ve owned and used many other bladders over the past years (namely the “Camelbak” stuff) and I’ve really had no complaints with them… But this product by “Source” is a step-up IMHO. The material that the bladder is constructed of feels extremely heavy duty and durable. The wide opening at the top is perfect for cleaning, drying and adding ice (I’ve already had it filled up and drained out a few times to check for leaks.) Also, the clasp/handle that secures the top opening is solid and easy to manipulate. The small spout is just right for filling up on the go, while the bladder is in it’s carrier. I don’t particularly care for the bite-valve, but I wasn’t planning on using it anyways… which leads me to the best part about this bladder. The QMT (Quick Mate Technology) that “Source” utilizes is the SAME SIZE as the “Camelbak” QLT (Quick Link Technology) Therefore, I was able to disconnect the stock “Source” drinking tube from it’s bladder and then connect my “Camelbak” drinking tubes (which I have customized for my specific uses.) This way I can still use the “Camelbak” mouth-piece/bite-valve that I prefer. Again, this thing feels super tough, like it could take some serious punishment. I expect that it will last me for quite some time, as long as it is maintained properly. I actually plan on purchasing a second one, just to have as a spare… (Yea, that’s how bad-ass this thing is!!) I don’t think there’s too much more to say, other than I highly recommend this system! Thanks again to “Source” for a quality product!

Used this for a GoRuck Challange in September. The bladder, tube and bite valve all stood up to the 14 hours of punishment. Easy to fill and refill on the go.
Beats camelbak hands down

This bladder, so far, has been amazingly durable, and the liner leaves no flavor in the water. No problems whatsoever. I landed on it while taking an unplanned and relatively short flight over the handlebars of my mountain bike. No damage. The valve works great too.

…It was a bit awkward for me to use the mouthpiece…it seemed big. I wish there were more options for mouth pieces. But it is very sturdy, not one complaint about that! I’m going to keep it for a spare, and I ordered one that you can pressurize, which means you don’t have to suck anymore 🙂 In fact, because no one touches it with their mouth, you can fill a water bottle, or cup, or replenish your friends water bottle!
