Just used Hydrapak as my main water bottle for a two week trip. No leakage but you do have to make sure you’re not packing something hard on the bite valve. I bought this one and will be purchasing more. Cool that it comes with two caps.
I did break the extended straw from the cap on the way home but I foolishly packed it between a shovel and axe. Operator error.
I’ve seen that you along with several other experienced alpinists are turning to the soft flask/water bottles. Many of the ones I’ve seen used are designed for trail runnin and have quick use nossle/valves/flip lids to dispense the water quickly. Have you heard of any bad experiences with water leakage inside the pack?
