My brother is looking to replace his Tesco hydration pack as the bladder has had it after 3 years. The Tesco one is £7.99 so it's not worth replacing the 1.5L bladder. Looking around I found this b'Twin bag for £14.99 http://www.decathlon.co.uk/EN/hydration ... 175229264/ , 8L storage and a 2L Bladder, so question is has anyone got or used the b'Twin and if so what's it like?

    I have a b twin hydration pack, it was £35 but it's been fine and it's built very well, the only issue I had was where the carry handle snagged on my helmet adjustment (another Btwin one), but I just cut it off as it's hardly essential.
    The 2l bladder has also given me no cause for complaint never leaked apart from where grit gets into the mouthpiece and causes a bit of dribble but nothing much really.

    I have this exact model - it works perfect, no leaks. Though it is smaller than stated, the volume according to the sticker says 5l. If you just want to take a couple of tubes and a bit of food, works absolutely fine, is light and well made.
