/ Repearing a hydration reservoir
This is the one: http://www.globetrekker.com.au/product_images/uploaded_images/8.81052_e.jpg
I've tried contacting Osprey but they've been of no help as it's out of warranty and would rather I just bought a new one (thanks guys!), if I liberally dab on some seam grip is it going to be safe for use or is the residue likely to send me slowly mad in "Apocalypse Now" style?
Hurm, shame with ospreys is you can turn them inside out; I had a similar problem on my camelback and turned it inside out, put a puncture repair kit from a bike on the hole area, then taped it down with gorilla tape them turned it back again.
Could try a bit of artful arm-into-the-bagging with a puncture repair kit?
For what its worth, I regularly take frontflip over the handlebar tumbles off my mountain bike onto my camelbak and it's never popped even with a hole being covered in the patch.
I have an osprey hydration resivoir which started leaking in the same way as you suggest - seems like the seam has gone. Real shame as i was really impressed with it up until that point. Was thinking about replacing it with the same but not if its a common problem!

Interesting, I wonder if this has happened to anyone else as well?
Tell me if seamgrip sends you 'willard style'.
Then i might try a dab meself.
Also, I just noticed that I catastrophically typo'ed "repairing" in the title, awesome.
That's a rubber bag is it?
