    Osprey Bite Valve

    Anybody have a spare/backup osprey bite valve? Mine is damaged and I'm going on a bike trip on Thursday. Amazon doesn't sell the right version!

    Just email them, they'll send you out a new on right away. Last time they sent me out 2.

    FYI - they've also sent me 3 new packs when mine wore out. They're an awesome outfit.

    I will try that, but doubt it will happen in the next 3 days.... And when I contacted them last time about some broken zippers/etc, they told me to send the pack in and they would "evaluate" if it could be repaired. If not, I would pay shipping there and back and get back the broken pack...No thanks.

    Weird because the Cback ones I have use a smaller tube than osprey. Might work in reverse, but then again, most of my stuff is old, and they have probably upgraded since.

    They send the bite valve’s no issue, and in pairs. Probably wouldn’t get by Thursday though unless you offer to pay expedited deliver. Give them a call, they’re usually super helpful by phone.

    I’ve sent back packs multi times, they always fix them, they’d have to be pretty screwed for them not to I’d imagine. Had buckles replaced, a tear in one, and they upgraded my magnet while they had it. I’ll never own another brand pack. Hate the new bladders though.

    I may have an extra of the original Nalgene designed bladder’s bite valve.

    @Chongo Loco - I've got an Osprey laptop/regular backpack and the waterproofing treatment in it has gone all sticky, think they will actually warranty it?

    Call them or reach out via email. Osprey, in my experience, is out to make lifetime customers not disposable shit that falls apart a month after the warranty runs out. They literally sent me 2 packs in the mail after I sent in two of my old packs that I'd worn out. They were ripping from sun damage and they had 1000s of miles on them. No questions other than 'here is a link, what color do you want?'.

    The only advice I'd give is wash them before you send them in, if they get something that smells like Satan's butthole in a box they're going to feel way less charitable.

    Like @chongoloco, I'm only buying Osprey from now on.

    Good to know. I will send it back as now there is a buckle broken, broken zipper, bad bite valve, rusty magnet holder, etc. Will wash before sending. I'm the opposite - I love the conforming nature of the bladder.

    The zipper top 3rd gen bladder I hate. Gen1 by nalgene I like and the kid’s gen2 one is ok.

    Person told me they won’t handle dirty packs for health code reasons. So clean anything you send. All repairs were done in house in Cortez CO.

    Chuck first time I sent one I told them I hooked it on a tree and tore it not warranty stuff. They said send it. Fixed that and waist buckle no questions. 2nd time I broke chest buckle in tailgate. They replaced buckle, magnet, and re-did all the stitching on the arm straps. Plus they’ve sent me bite valves. Beyond what I’d consider customer support. Like mom support!
