Great value hydration system
You just cannot beat the value of this hydration system. I purchased this to throw on the back of my load bearing vest and plate carrier that I use for training classes so a 1.5L system is perfect. It comes with the bladder which I expected to be of low quality because many hydration carriers costing more don't come with one but it's not. No need to spend more for one. It also includes the straps to use when you're not attaching it via molle, although they are pretty basic. Again, at this price point they will do just fine.
ProsValue Quality of materials Includes bladder and straps
ConsOpens to the bottom (not a huge deal, but would prefer it opens to the top)

Price and Size is great
I was needing a hydration system to go on my plate carrier and had read / seen a few cases where people were complaining about the size of their rigs. I originally wanted a three liter camelbak but after realizing that would not be good for practical use I decided to downsize. I found this setup and decided to give it a try especially for the price. For my use it fits the bill great. I am no operator so this will not see extreme use. With moderate use this should last me a long time from what I can tell. My only complaints is I ordered black and the tube is green along with the insulation cover on the tube. It doesn't stand out a ton but I wish condor could at least have made a black cover for it. Not a reason not to buy at all. The thing I am slightly concerned with is the quality of the bladder and bladder holding straps. The bladder is a pretty thin rubber and it would not shock me if it busted from falling on it hard filled up or take much abuse without tearing. The two straps that hold the bladder up are not designed well at all in my opinion. If you use the straps as they made the bladder will sag too far down. I was able to rig it up in a way that fixed this problem by doing some handy sowing. Lastly there really needs to be much thinker reinforced cut out points where the bladder is strapped in because it gets pretty stretched out for my liking but it may hold up fine. Only time will tell but over all for the price and size it's great for me and looks good on my carrier too.

Just the right size
This size is better to minimize weight.

Like other reviewers, I put this on the back of my plate carrier. It fit perfectly and didn't add much bulk since I didn't like having things back there anyway. It also seems to be quality construction.

I bought this to attach to the back of my plate carrier and it does so perfectly. Just easily remove the shoulder straps and use the molle webbing and straps and off you go tight and secure. Can't beat the design and value

Great addition to your gear
I bought this in black and it's a great addition to my plate carrier. it blends in well and thanks to the velcro and molle on the back I can still add a patch and bang pouches, etc on the back., it doesn't increase the space too much and was fine when driving. you need to make sure the hose is really tight as I had come leakage the first day. The bladder has hang straps inside as well to stop movement.
Proslots of molle space on the back for additional stuff comes with a bladder, hose & themal cover for the hose has straps to be a standalone backpack as well as Alice/Pals/Molle webbing attachments.
ConsHose needs to be be very tight or you get leakage.

Excellent quality, smart size
Excellent quality, easy to attach to different plate carriers. As others noted, it does not hang down below bottom of the carrier, provides a liter and a half of water when needed. Molle on exterior allows attachment of anything you would have put on your plate carrier anyways. Hook & loop strip on top is only about an inch though, would like it a full three inches to put a full 3" by 8" POLICE patch on back for positive ID but can adapt. If you want to use with a simple chest harness or by itself etc just keep the shoulder straps attached
ProsQuality, size, insulated tube
ConsSmall (1") hook & loop strip along top

I ATTACHED IT TO THE BACK OF MY PLATE CARRIER. I EXPECTED CHEAP CONSTRUCTION AND WAS PLEASANTLY SURPRISED. IT FITS PERFECT ON MY PLATE CARRIER, DOESN’T HANG OVER THE EDGES AND THE HOSE HAS AN OD GREEN COVER OVER THE LENGTH OF IT.

will this carrier accomodate larger bladders, like a 3L?
No, it is shaped for the bladder that comes with it. (1.5L)
on November 27, 2015
No. This is constructed to only hold a 2L bladder.

from Parma, OH
It's made for 2L, so I wouldn't recommend it. When the 2L blatter is full it's fits snug in ther carrier, a 3L bladder would just cause problems.

It's pretty large, but I doubt it would quite fit a full 3l pack. I use the included one and it works pretty well, though maybe not as ideal for extended operation.
on November 27, 2015
No it will not accomodate a 3L bladder. I have only used the 1.5L that comes with the carrier but with that blatter it is almost an exact fit. you may be able to fit a 2L bladder but l have not tried because it's so close with the 1.5L.

Is the tan anything like a coyote brown? Or do they make a coyote brown version?
The Tan color is a little lighter than Coyote Brown, but it is the closest to Coyote that Condor produces.
