Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oh no! What happened??? I purchased several of these a few years ago when they were lined with food grade silicone and they quickly became my absolute go-to favorite piece of gear. But I recently bought another to add to the collection and to my horror they are lined with polyurethane!!!!???? The taste is horrific, and I can only imagine what these chemicals leaching into the water will do to a person. They claim it's food grade, well I'm sorry MSR, that's not good enough. You had a perfect product, why on earth would you change it? I feel totally blindsided and betrayed by one of my most trusted and favorite outdoor gear manufacturers. Not happy, not at all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Why is the cap different? Dromlite bag is great except the cap is different from the other drom caps and the hydration kit doesn't fit. This is annoying especially because the hydration kit says it will work with any drom bag. thankfully I had another dromedary and just switched the caps to be able to use the hydration kit with my new dromlite bag. But this is kinda lame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough and don't leak I have several of these of all three sizes which I use for kayak-packing water into the Everglades. They're easy to use, don't leak; and don't impart flavor to the water. They're very tough, though I think a raccoon could bite through the fabric, so they stay in the secured hatch. Though they don't afford that kind of protection, I have not had a problem with leaks if the caps are screwed on tightly. I have recommended these many times. Being soft, they conform to the inner hull, so take up less room than a plastic water bottle. Packing 10 days worth of water, you need all the storage space you can get.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So bummed! I purchased this bag a few weeks ago and was so excited to have it back in my life. Years ago I traveled with a similar red one (made of different, thicker material) on the back of my bicycle for a year through the US, Mexico and Central America. It was indispensable for transporting clean water around. I had someone borrow it from me last year and they loved it too, so I let them keep it and decided to purchase another one. Ordered this new one made of polyurethane, used it ONE time and before it made it home safely to be cleaned.. two days later... MOLD!!! I tried everything to get rid of it, contacted MSR, got their ideas to use different soaps and bleach and still nothing. I understand the material is cheaper, but seriously?? They were even out of ideas of how to remove the mold, MSR employee Daven Lazalere eventually replying, "From what it looks like, there isn't much direction I have left for this unfortunately. Sorry that happened". I am beside myself with how this is acceptable for a product that used to be so amazing. Based on the other reviews I read, I see I am not the only one. Will not be purchasing any MSR products if I don't have to in the future. This is unacceptable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for climbers Simple, bomber - this can take a surprising amount of abuse, anything short of purposefully attacking it with a crampon. I toss it around with the same abandon I would a Nalgene, I certainly don't treat it as nice as other hydration bladders. It's a lot nicer to carry up a multi-pitch climb in a small pack than a bottle which sits awkwardly and digs into your back. Not to mention it's lighter and more space efficient than a bottle. I have the hose kit that I use sometimes for hikes or trail runs but most often I just use this on its own and sip from it at breaks. It's very versatile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indispensable for group backpacking I have two of the 6L DromLite bags and they fantastic for group backpacking trips. We fill both of them when we get to camp and we're set for water for a while. They don't weight much and take very little space when empty and rolled up. The eyelet makes them easy to hang up. I put a small loop of cord in the eyelet so they're easy to hang on a tree branch or clip to something with a carabiner. I recommend getting the spigot cap to go with them to make them a little easier to dispense water from.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from On again off again I bought two of these bags at the same time. One day into a bikepacking trip in some of the most remote desert in the US, I found that one had developed a leak around one of the seals. I had to under-fill it for the remainder of the trip, which was a bit scary. Tried to warranty it, and MSR has been excellent, but I haven't had a chance to send it in yet. So, at least they'll back it up if anything happens. The other bag, on the other hand, survived and thrived, and because of it, I was able to top off my comrades as they ran dry. So there's good and bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and Durable I bought my DromLite Bags (a small and medium) at the beginning of the summer. I work with young adults and often either carry extra water or prefer to have my personal water just in a DromLite for ease of packing and accessibility. I personally prefer not to have water bottles on the outside of my pack. I love my DromLite Bags! They seem to last forever and MSR has always helped me if parts have broken.

Questions & Answers

If I order this now, what is it lined with? How big is the opening? Is the opening a screwed on piece such that it could be exchanged for a lid if necessary? Does it open at the top like a dry sack?

Asked by: clos
This bag is made from a polyurethane film. The lid screws on and measures approximately 2.8 inches in width. It does not open at the top like a dry sack.
