    200 ounce bladder

    I am looking for a much wider, bladder for backpacking. Not really to carry 200 ounces of water, but with the idea that it would be much thinner in my pack. Any suggestions where I could locate one would be appreciated. Thanks. Danrum

    I don't think its going to work the way you intend unless you go out of your way to compress the bladder. If you add 1 liter of water, its just going to pool at the bottom rather than give you a thin wide layer of water.

    It may.

    Yep, I thought about that. I had the idea of a very thin bladder, that was wider and therefore less than an inch thick. That way it would lay all the way across the pack instead of down the center and be 4 or 5 inches thick. I will keep thinking of a way........... Thanks to all for your suggestions. Danrum
