Does anyone know of a good hydration bladder that would fit the Spot and Stalk pack? I'm looking for one that isn't too expensive and holds around 2L to 100 oz.

You can get a 100oz Camelback for under $20. That's what I've used the last five years.

I use a 100oz Hydrastorm from Blackhawk. Works like a charm.

Around here they sell 1L and 2L hyrdration bladders for $10 and $18 respectively at Wal-mart in the camping section.

Pretty much any hydration bladder will fit in a pack. It's water so you can manuever the bag to fit in the pack. Of course you may be limited by the amount of water you can fit into it.

The generic reservoirs (bladders) that you get at WalMart & the big box stores are junk! The valves leak, often the tubes are kinked & their seams fail with astounding regularity. The 3 reservoirs to look at are CamelBak, Source or Blackhawk. If you're buying CamelBak, get the replacement reservoir from their military/government line-up. They're heavier, have the Hydro-link quick disconnect & they aren't blue! I would also suggest getting the Hydro-link bite valve cover...keeps the bite valve clean. Nothing worse than getting' dirt & stuff with your water!

Yes, these reservoirs are more expensive, but they are worth it.

You can order CamelBak direct from:

http://www.camelbak.com/en/government-military/accessories.aspx

Source is available here:

And, Blackhawk is available direct from:

Hope this helps,

Nathan

Yep, I would wholeheartily agree with this statement. I have used my black 100oz Camelback for the last 4-5 years and it hasn't leaked or caused a single problem yet.

This year, my buddy had all his stuff sitting on the seat behind me in my truck. My spare boots were sitting on the floor of the truck. His cheap bladder leaked all over the place soaking the back seat and emptying into my boots.:mad:
