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.
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.
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.
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.
The best bladder in the market
A friend gave me his USMC Tactical 3L Hydration System made by SOURCE Vagabond Systems Ltd., but without a bladder. So I had to promptly buy the Source Tactical WXP 3-Liter bladder in Coyote along with the Source Tactical Helix bite valve.
Love this thing, definitely get this over a more expensive brand
This thing has been all across the US and parts of Canada with me on camping trips and has held up great. It’s easy to clean, easy to fill, and carries enough water for me and my dog to stay hydrated on long hikes even on dry, hot days. I think I’ve only run out of water once, and it was on a 6 hour hike up a mountain in the desert in the summer.
Good, with a warning on procedure!
This seems to be a really quality product. It functions very well, doesn’t have much taste, and is pretty easy to clean. Just one warning though, learned through experience… there are TWO threaded pieces on the circular opening: one is the actual cap, and the second is a ring underneath it that locks down the hanging loop. Don’t worry about understanding that, the point is that IF the ring under the cap isn’t screwed down, when you tighten the cap IT WON’T ACTUALLY BE SEALING THE OPENING! I couldn’t figure out WHY the bottom of my pack was so wet, until I realized the thing had been leaking all day. So FIRST you tighten the ring under the cap, THEN you tighten the cap. The sliding seal at the top works just fine.
better than Camelbak
It does what they say it does. I have owned Camelbak bladders for 20 years and I have watched the evolution of design. But I now prefer source bags over Camelbak. The wide open top and anti-fungal coating are a pleasure. My kids have the blue sport version of the Source bag so I have experienced them as well.
