April 11, 2016
Model/Year: 2015

Pros: Great came with spare hooks and the brushes and a hanger clip in and the tablets

Recommendation: i would highly recommend for any one who owns the camelbak antidote reservoir

December 23, 2014
Model/Year: 2009

Pros: Works well

Cons: $$

Recommendation: If you own a pack you gotta own one of these. You are cleaning your bladder aren't you??? I should probably clean it more often.

December 21, 2012
Pros: Long reach on the tube cleaner.

Cons: The brush for the main body of the camelback is poorly shaped and less useful than a simple sponge. Tablets leave an odd chemical taste behind no matter how much I rinse.

Recommendation: I would actually skip out on this cleaning kit even. The tube brush is usefull but still isn't stiff enough to really scrub the inside. The Main reservoir brush is pootly shaped and hard to use and the tablets make the water taste awful for weeks afterward.

Pros: -Keeps gunk from growing in your reservoir
-Cheap and effective

Cons: -None

Recommendation: I use these brushes with really hot water and mint flavored denture cleaner to clean my bladders once ever month or so. Ever since I aquired this brush kit, I haven't had any issues with mold growing in my bladders.

December 15, 2012
Pros: Inexpensive, works well, right parts to get the job done.

Cons: Only 1 cleaning tablet

Recommendation: I usually don't have an issue with camelbak bladders getting gross, but I have received multiple free cleaning kits. Every once in a while I like to give the bladders I'm using a good scrubbing. These kits get the job done with very little effort. These are a great value and big help especially if you use any sugary drinks in your bladders. Get one today you won't be disappointed.

December 15, 2012
Pros: Easy way to make sure all the tubes get a good scrubbing

Cons: Doesn't do the work all by itself

Recommendation: Forgot about my camelbak 2L basic pack and found it growing something green and gross inside. Tossed some bleach in and used the scrubbing brushes to make sure I got every last bit of that mold out. Worked like a charm.

Obviously, the best option is making sure the mold NEVER grows, but if/when it does, or you decide to just give your hydration packs a good once over, these brushes really help.

Pros: Fits like a glove, like it should.
Makes cleaning quick and easy

Cons: Nothing

Recommendation: Why waste dollars and time dreaming up ways to clean your camelbak? Spend $10 and get one - stop wasting time.

December 1, 2010
Pros: Designed to fit Camelbak parts.
Decent price.
Does a really good job of getting mold out of the tubing.

Cons: None

Recommendation: I tried several methods for cleaning my camelbaks (4 of them) and finally spent the $10 and got this.

It's quick, it's easy, it leaves the camelbak stuff cleaned perfectly and it's easy to rinse off and store.

Bottom line, spend the $$ and get the kit, it's well worth it.

December 1, 2010
Pros: Makes cleaning the tube easy like it should be. Speeds up the process.

Cons: None

Recommendation: Go Buy one.

December 1, 2010
Pros: does what its intended to do

Cons: additional $

Recommendation: Honestly, get the sterilazation spray for $5 and rinse your bladder out after every ride with Hot water and the spray. You will never have a problem. no need for additional tools to keep around the house.
