What size/make hydration system are those with a recon harness using? 

I'm looking to add the harness to my snubby kb for carrying more water when mountain biking. 

Thanks!

I'm using a Source Hydration 3 liter.  Most of the time I don't fill it up all the way....maybe 2/3 or 3/4 full.  Seems to work pretty good for me and the models from The Source Hydration are about the only ones that I haven't had leakage problems from.  Here's the model I am running in mine:  https://sourcetacticalgear.com/tactic...torm-valve.html

I also have one of these, which allows me to fill the bladder from a tap or small opening bottle without having to remove it from the slot on my Recon Harness:  https://sourcetacticalgear.com/hydrat...on-adapter.html

I also use a Source Tactical bladder as well; most of my outings are in water rich environs, so the 1 liter gets the call most often

I like the 1 liter as it gives me room for some shelter bits underneath the bladder

I am using a Platapus 3L Hoser bladder. I rarely fill it with more than 1.5 liters for mountain biking, as I live in the mountains, there's water everywhere, and I carry a filter. I am happy with the functionality of the whole set up.

I owe this thread an update and apologize for no pics. I heeded the recommendation and tried the Source bladders. I have a 50oz that came in an Eagle insulated sleeve and fits perfectly in the recon harness. I also bought a couple of the 3 liters but haven't used them in the recon harness yet. It had been very hot & humid here until the last week or two so I've just been using a 3 liter Source in a small Eagle hydration pack. All of this is when riding mountain/gravel bikes.

I also really like the ability to fill the Source with the adaptor. Thanks for the advice and I'll post some pics soon.
