I just bought the crux 2. I have gone on two rides and everything seams to work great.The thing I don't understand is the baffle inside all it does is get in the way when trying to clean or dry the reservoir, is it really necessary?
I had an old reservoir that I loved, but these new ones are AWFUL! Whatever they're adding to the plastic tastes so bad that I don't even want to drink my water when I'm out. The Dakine ones are much better, super disappointed in this product.
firFirst time use a hydration backpak, cant get the water out, try the on/off switch without help. no instruction booklet with the package, also no instruction info on website or Q&A. very dissapoint for the first try.
I might otherwise have given this a 5 star rating except that my wife and I found these reservoirs not quite what we wanted: we have 2 favorite day sacs and wanted to add reservoirs to them. Except there’s nothing to hold them upright in their place. They flop to the base of the day sacs! I can see now that a high level hook is needed in each sac, but in their absence a nylon frame to keep them in place would be preferred. Otherwise they would be perfect!
I have a 2 year old Rogue pack that uses an Antidote reservoir. I needed a second reservoir and purchased a Crux only to find it doesn’t fit in my Rogue pack: neck is too big and handle is too long. I don’t want to buy another pack, but if I do I will strongly consider another brand.
I bought the 2L reservoir about 1 month ago. I have used it over a dozen times mountain biking, and it is great. Easy to fill and clean, Easy to get water through tube, and best part is no plastic taste!
I bought the 2 litre Crux predecessor for my F-Stop Ajna backpack. Have been using it in many countries, on many mountains, and never ever experienced a leak, not even when it got "squeezed" hard in narrow passages. I'm certain this applies to the Crux model as well , since only the overall shape is different!
The new design for this reservoir is awesome. For so long I have struggled getting the closure in exactly the right spot so I can seal my water without a leak. Now it is so simply and easy. Thank you Camelback!
