It's very light weight, don't remember the exact weight, but definitely lighter than my Hiker pro. Plus it eliminates the need for a regular water bottle. Just wondering if anyone has any info on them.
They are pretty cool for day hikes but not really practical for backpacking. As you can only get 22oz or so at a time. Also the one I had you had to squeeze pretty hard to get the water to come out which was a pain.
