Product Description

If there's one thing we know best, it's water. Our athletes, customers and colleagues told us they wanted a reservoir that delivered more water per sip, with a foolproof design that made it easy to fill up and hit the trail. The brand new Crux delivers 20% more water per sip, with an ergonomic handle for easier refilling, and an on/off lever that makes it easy to prevent leaks. Like all of our gear, we put the Crux through exhaustive stress tests to make sure that it won't fail you on the trail. 100% free of BPA, BPS and BPF. Features: Offers 20% more water per sip
Leak-proof cap is easier to open and close
On/off lever lets you seal your drinking tube shut with one hand
Hydroguard™ technology inhibits the growth of bacteria in the reservoir and tube
Big bite valve self-seals after each drink, eliminating annoying drips Specifications: CAPACITY:

No Spills!
I've been using Camelbak reservoirs for years in the military and had a number of spills and leaks over that time. Since this new model came out a few years ago, I've yet to have a single leak despite the abuse I put it through!

I also work for an organization that puts veterans on long distance hikes. Each year about 16 veterans (6 PCT, 4 CDT, 2 AZT, and 4 cyclists) use them for their 3-6 month long adventure and we've yet to have bad feedback!

Impressed with updated design
Purchased this to replace my old reservoir - this style has been out for a while, but I finally broke down and purchased it to replace my original reservoir. I love the quick disconnect of the hose for cleaning and swapping between normal tube and insulated tube. I've seen comments regarding this version leaking from time to time around the lid. I have not used it yet so that is to be determined for me. So far I'm impressed and look forward to using it.

Bought the Rogue with Crux bladder. LEAKS. Nothing worse that getting to trail head with an empty pack OR, you fo everything you can to keep from leaking in the car to have it leak on your back when it's 39 degrees outside and have no water 10 min into a 2 hour ride. True P. O. S.

Solid, reliable water reservoir
I get this 3L Crux reservoir to replace an older 2.5L bladder. And this 3L Crux works just fine. Others have mentioned of leaks. This reservoir doesn't leak.
Have used this on 2 separate day hikes and it does everything that it should.

Leaks - Nothing more to say!
I bought on the name and reputation of Camelbak and could not be more disappointed. the plastic gasket which is meant to be the O-ring for the twist cap does not fit at all. It is too big, and slips off the threads when you tighten the cap. A quality driven company would issue a product recall, or send out repair gaskets to all who own this defective product. I hiked a 31 mile same day hike and needed to find sources of water and refill regular in the mountains because this product from Camelbak is either defective, or poorly designed. I'll never purchase another camelbak product unless this is resolved. I'll be sure to tell all of my friends.

It's great
Yeah it's great until you drop it, when that happens it's going to start pouring out of the bag. Mine doesn't just leak a little bit, it pours out of my bag with the lid on about as fast as I can pour a bottle of water in.

Seal broke in no time...
I thought they had fixed the problem, but in barely a week of use, the plastic ring (seal) came loose. Very disappointed...

Cap leaks
Bought for my wife for her birthday. The cap is totally hopeless. It leaks really bad. Pretty much pours out. The gasket is fine, nothing in the way if tightening it down. Now I have to battle with the LBC shop to return it. This is the last camelbak product I will buy. .....junk

New Cap Prone To Leaking
The persons responsible for engineering these new crux reservoirs should be fired and banished from working in industrial design forever. The cap is a pain to screw on without cross threading, which leads to leaks.
