Reservoirs are typically available in 0.5 liter, 1.5 liter, 2 liter and 3 liter capacities. In choosing which volume reservoir you want to select, remember that water has a weight factor that must be considered. Each liter of water weights about 2 pounds, so you will need to consider that fact, in light of the distance you plan to hike and whether or not you will be able to refill the reservoir along the way. If you anticipate a journey where you will need two liters of water and you have a three liter reservoir in your theseBackpacks, you can choose to fill it with two liters, reducing the weight while insuring adequate water is available. This insures you still have a 3 liter capacity for longer journeys.
