How many hydration bladders have you killed putting something other than water in it (sports drink, Kool Aid, Jack and Coke)? If only you could fit your big fat hand in it to clean it...no offense. With the 3L top fill  hydro tanker from 3V Gear your woes are over! Open up the tanker by rotating the two red tabs on the top and separating the sides. It is like big a zip lock bag on steroids. Now you can easily fill and clean your tanker any time. The bite valve rotates to seal off your liquids from dripping when you are not using it. What are you waiting for? If the 3L is too big check out the 2L version HERE

Our Top Fill Hydro Tankers features an easy to use clip on the top of the bladder that allows  you to fill and seal the bladder quickly. The top clip also allows you to easily clean and maintain the hydro tanker. The bullet "Bite Me" valve delivers water when you want it and seals close when you don't. A quick twist of the bite valve seals water off so you don't leak any of your H2O. Also includes patented Anti-microbial bladder interior and drink tube to prevent bacteria and mold.

    Fits perfectly in my Paratus. Love the no-leak bite valve, SUPER easy to clean out the gin and juice after a roudy rucking session.

    3V Gear 3L Tanker, 2nd Paratus Pack, & 3rd Tech Pouch

    Five Stars times 5! Upgraded to a 3L Tanker for my Paratus Pack. Love it. Easy fill, easy clean. Moved my 2L to my EDC 3V Posse and it fits perfect. Will be purchasing another 3L for my 2nd Paratus Pack. I now have three 3V Tech Pouches on all my 3V bags. They are home for my HF HAM Radios and Smartphones. Quality and Durability for all 3V Gear.
    Loyal Customer forever. Best investment in gesr that you can make. Enjoy your adventures.

    Love the size and easy opening of this bladder. Easy to clean and dry. Like the lock on the bite valve to stop the occasional drips. The wide size makes it feel better against my back unlike the regular skinnier bladders. Bought a 2L for my wife and she really enjoys hers as well.

    Way better than the Camelbak that I've gotten from the Army! Easy to clean and a must have. Looking forward to getting a couple more for the family.
