If you just need a bladder bag Sports Direct do them cheap from Karrimor. If its the back pack as well I hage a Regatta one which is fine and I have an Army issue Camelback but it only fits the bladdet.

You should also take a look at Dakine, they make brilliant bags with a great hydration system. I voted camelback as I really don't like the mouth piece on the Tesco one but I would of voted Dakine over both of your options. I have 1 from all 3 companies and the Dakine IMo is far better. Very Happy

Camelback are pretty cool and have a much better build qualty so for my type of aggressive regular use i benefit. But if your just tootling around then why waste your money.

I have just bought a lezyne svelte. Great quality.

Didn't want the tesco one as a mate had one and has so far ripped the bag and the bladder... he is pretty ham fisted though.

The lezyne beat the camel back mule ( the other one i was looking at) as it was a little cheaper, a bit bigger and another mate has the mule - can't have the same as him... lol.

Get a water bottle, ten quid with cage. Never worry again, can't lose them, no one likely to nick them.

My brother bought me a Camelbak Mule NV for my birthday, really like it. Well made, lots of pockets, 3 litre bladder - possibly the best accessory I have.

I started out with a tesco pack which for the money was great
only problem I had was once you had put the bladder in the main compartment it seriously reduced what you could fit in there
and the flo on the mouth peice was not the greatest but adequate
I now have a camelbak Mule which is awesome, the bladder fits in a seperate compartment of its own allowing me to fit in a jacket ,tools and spare inner tube etc
the camelbak bladder is great too I can get much more juice flow and also no annoying leakage from the mouthpiece whilst riding
in my opinion the camelbak is worth the extra penny's

I've got the tesco tiny one, with a bladder. It's ok, and for less than a tenner I was happy. Although I have a camelbak also, and the quality is definitely better.

So, that's an inconclusive answer, sorry!

I picked up the tesco 1.5l bladder 6l pack last weekend.

I've never had one before so can't really compare, but it seems fine for what I want it for.
