Water you waiting for?
You never want to lose water on the road or during an expedition, which is why it helps to have the MSR In-Line Shut-Off Valve. With a low-profile design and tough HDPE material, this valve is easy to use and extremely convenient from long treks in the backcountry to cycling races in town. It fits most hydration systems and packs thanks to its in-line style, and it has a sleek and lightweight construction so it resists snagging and dripping.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought 4 to use with my Platypus Hoser bladders. I wanted to use them before the quick connect fitting coming from the bladder, but these valves are made to go into the MSR hose and then the MSR bite valve. The Platypus bite valve slips on the end, but the fit is rather loose in my opinion. I think I would end up losing the bite valve at some point. I think I will still be able to use them, but I will have to do a little hose modification.
