Yeah, I trusted that Camelbak wouldn't make something that bad. Certainly looks very dramatic when it happens and should really have been designed better so that such a basic user error doesn't happen. I can see why people would jump to the conclusion that it's faulty.
I thought it may be user errors because reviews on some sites are fine
Got this delivered yesterday. Found that hole for filling up is easily misaligned when securing the lid, if it happens you get the dramatic leaking you see in some review videos. Just give it a test before you put it in your bag, if it leaks, try securing it again.
OOS, don’t know why someone reactivated the deal...
Thanks OP. Looking forward to it arriving (y) :)
