I just slammed the nozzle of my Osprey pack in my car door. I kind of hated that bladder anyway. It was heavy and unnecessarily big.

What replacement bladder is good?

There's nothing better than an Orangina after cheating death with Digger.

as long as the opening is big enough that I can stick my hand in it i'm good. they usually cost a little more but are worth it imo.

I second this. Have used lots of different bladders and Camelbak is the only one that feels effortless and comfortable to suck on. They perfected the no drip, no leak, great flow and comfortable to use nozzle. Their bladders usually last longer as well. They never leak and usually outlive their bags. Or I neglect to empty/clean them for the winter and in the summer I am stuck buying a new one or having "Kombucha" for my hydration.

Second that. Best bite valve i have tried. Using them with Deuter (= Source) bladders, which i think are better than the camelbak ones. Easier to clean and the closure is simple and reliable.
