Osprey Hydraulics 3L Reservoir BlueThe Osprey Hydraulics 3L Reservoir allows you to remain hydrated without compromising fit, comfort or stability.The Osprey Hydraulics 3L Reservoir is manufactured using new MPE film, which provides the taste-free quality of PE (polyethylene) with the added benefit of extra strength over typical PE films. The “M” in MPE stands for metallocene, a special catalyst used in the manufacture of the PE resin. It forms a PE that is more consistent and even in structure, resulting in greater strength and resistance, making it ideal for reservoirs, and allows it to handle hot water. It is BPA and PVC free, of course, and is developed with a new HydroStatic™ backer plate, thus creating a wider and lower profile. A traditional reservoir barrels out and forms a straight tube when filled, interfering with a pack’s ability to fit the body, but the HydroStatic™ plate shapes the reservoir to ensure pack fit is preserved for optimal stability and comfort.FeaturesShipped from Australian warehouseNew Metallocene PE high strength and taste free film (BPA and PVC free)Anti-microbial formula to prevent bacteria and mould build-upNew 3/4 turn cap quick with secure open/close; Built in 180 degree pivot shut-off valve; New flexible 6.35mm hose for faster water flowWide mouth opening provides easy fill and cleaning accessNew lightweight, low profile handle for easy fill and pack insertion with dual sided hose exitNew direct welded HydroStatic™ plate maintains low and wide reservoir profileAnatomical shape keeps water weight steady and close to the bodyMagnetic bite valve with included sternum strap magnetCapacity: 3 litres; Dimensions: 44 x 29 x 9cmBuy Osprey Hydration from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World’s Largest Online Bike Store.
