BPA and PVC free, the BlackWolf Tank 3L delivers taste free, refreshing water right to your lips from an anti-microbial reservoir. The pivoting bite valve has a one handed on/off action, and an integrated magnetic clip to keep it secure on the sternum strap of your pack. Made in the USA, the Metallocene material produces a soft, flexible yet durable reservoir.
I was looking forward to have a BPA free & taste free Hydration Bladder, but unfortunately even after many times of changing water the bladder taste like plastic/rubber which is disgusting. I ended up using just the hose in glass bottles.
Firstly let me reassure you Agnes that the bladder is BPA free, Black Wolf don't want to mislead choices people make regarding their health. As for taste, it seems everyone is affected by a plastic/rubber taste differently, we sell tons of these and only get complaints now and then. This being said, Black Wolf have updated the Tank recently, so we are on the lookout for any increase in complaints, of which we feed back to the manufacturer. Let us know if there is more we can do for you. ~ Ben
One of the best bladders i have used. With the magetic clip and its smart mouth piece design it can be used completely hands free also.
Didn't actually use it on our trip as it was too bulky to carry with all the other equipment. Also, even though I soaked and washed tank prior to use, it still has strong plastic flavour - any suggestions on how to remove??
Hi Cheryl, it is common to have a bit of plastic taste in water bladders, usually this goes away after a few uses. Different people are bothered on different levels with the taste, with some people finding it never goes away. You can try to soak the bladder with a bicarbonate of soda and water or lemon and water mixture overnight, this usually fixes the problem.
Fits my pack perfectly and holds more than enough for a good hike. Easy to fit and use and good price. Very happy with this product
I purchased this 3l water bladder to go on a 3 day trip with my son. We both carried on bladder each and the unit was sufficient for one person daily requirements. The pack fits snug in the sack compartment and the valve is very easy to operate with your mouth.
Have used this hiking a few times now. It's meant to be 'taste free' but it still has a plastic 'flavour' to it. I washed it out with bi carb of soda but it still has the flavour. However, this bladder is very tough and practical. Recommended!
Hi Guys, I recently purchased this bladder and find the hose to be very stiff, making it a little annoying when clipped onto my bag. Does the hose become more flexible over time, or do you sell an alternative product that can be fitted to this bladder? Many thanks :)
G’day Waylon, I’ve had a look for you and Black Wolf don’t make or sell replacement hoses for their hydration bladders. Black Wolf and Camelbak make the leading hydration products, and both their hoses have the same flexibility. The density of the plastic is likely for durability purposes, so perhaps yours will just need to be used a little more to soften it up.
