Very tough and packable
January 03, 2012
Great alternative to other bulky water containers! I plan to use on my 2 week sup expedition. I'm doing a trip up the St.johns river in Fl where there are a few spots where drinkable water is scarce so this will come in handy! Nice webbing for lashing secure.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
best storage bag for rugged use
April 06, 2011
I use it for kayak camping. I also use 3 liter platypus bottles. Both work but the MSR unit is more rugged and beatable. I was worried about bad water taste from the unit but from what I read it happens to older well used bags or ones that just were not cleaned out. So far no bad taste.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use
No more plastic containers

Want to carry water you're used to the taste of? Well if you were me the answer is a definitely yes, if possible. These are easy to carry and easy to drain. They are highly packable, especially good for the kayak, and they look cool. thank you for listening....Pros: Ease of use
Durable and Functional
May 18, 2011
Bought three 6L bags in 2007, they've been through many National Parks and not a single problem so far. Even after a raven attack in the Grand Canyon seemingly destroyed the cap on one, the product still performed flawlessly for the remaining six days of the trip. Common water bottle threads not only made replacing the cap easy once we hit civilization again, but attaches quickly and easily to the Katadyn Vario water filter for fast filling in the field. Provides the necessary water storage when dry camping is required. Cleaning is made easier when a nylon brush is used, just make sure to dry thoroughly before storing. Overall a great product.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value

Solid water bag
September 22, 2012
These have a great solid feel to them, great attachment points and they look like they will last 20 years. I have dropped them fully loaded with water and they shrug that off. They also function as a shower unit. A little pricey but probably worth it in the long run.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Cons: Cost
Best Dromedary I've Found
May 16, 2009
I have this in 3 sizes and couldn't ask for more. It is completely bulletproof and I am not afraid to just throw it on top of my gear in my pack. Adds some taste, but no more that any other hydration pouch I've used. I wouldn't switch if I already had a pouch, but if you need one this is definitely the way to go.
Useful camping tool

I bought the 6 liter bag, and brought it along backpacking with only one Nalgene water bottle. I can purify about 4 bottles worth of water at once when I get to camp and then I don't have to mess around with the water filter any more after that. Also, with this bag I can fill it up with water then camp somewhere that's not nearby a water source.
Works great with my MSR pump

Screws right into my pump - makes getting water easy. Have used it for a year and seems to be holding up well, no leaks or significant wear No complaints with the Dromedary.Pros: Build quality, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
Useful and durable
August 05, 2010
I have had an MSR dromedary bag for years and recently bought another for versatility. Great for hanging in camp for general use, especially with the optional spigot attachment. Can also be used as a hydration bag while hiking with the drinking tube attachment, but needs a little extra room in the pack compared to standard hydration bladders. My only complaint is that my water filter doesn't fit into the mouth, which is just slightly too narrow. (I've only tried it on my older model, so possibly its mouth is slightly damaged after years of use, or perhaps the newer model may fit.) Your friends will thank you for toting this.
MSR Dromedary Bag

I purchased the 4 liter and 6 liter bags to use on canoe trips. They work very well and appear to be indestructible. They take little space when empty and are easy to use when full. Altogether, they are well worth the money.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

I took this backpacking and it was such a great accessory. The cord that runs along the edge of the bladder allowed me to hang it from branches for easy dispensing and the multiple spout options allowed me to regulate the flow. Once empty it rolled up and tucked nicely in a small pocket in my pack- much better than hauling empty Nalgenes or plastic bottles. I only wished that it had a cap tether similar to the Camelback reservoir so I would not be able to lose the cap in the future.
