Thoughts on the Performance Monsoon Max 2000slbenz

Wanted to ask you all on your experience with the Performance Monsoon Max 2000 hydration pack. Is it comfortable? How well does the valve work? I am considering this vs. the Camelbak Lobo. The Performance pack is $50.00 vs. the Camelbak is $60.00. The Performance pack carries more and has a 100 oz. reservoir while the Camelbak has a 70 oz. reservoir. Do I go with the Performance or should I go with the Camelbak. I currently am replacing an original Camelbak 70 oz. from 1993. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Most of my rides are 1-4 hours in length.
Just my opinion...MrCelloBoy

of course. I looked at the Performance hydration packs a few times when I was upgrading from a smaller pack. I ended up getting a Camelbak. The bladder quality seems far superior and I just felt it would last longer. Also the design and features of Camelbak's products seem more thought out. Performance's approach looks more like "how inexpensively can we do it"...There are plenty of other item's I'd get through Performance though. Our family of 3 owns 1-Camelbak original, 1-kidbak, 2-Blowfish, 1-Lobo and 1-Mule.
