Very familiar, like the original ones that were in the two Everlast 4207's I have. When they failed I wound up using TufWear #3's. Good bladders, valves failed before the body did. Of course they are no longer available as that incarnation of TufWear is no longer with us. So I'm going to be ordering some more Title XL bladders.

Do you order Title bladders from Title directly? I have been ordering from Amazon and getting various Enkay numbered sizes with a Title instruction sheet thrown in.

A general question about vintage bags, and vintage kangaroo bags in general... This bag has a warning on the bottom not to inflate over 3lbs. Is this limit inherent in the bag, the bladder, both?

Properly tanned 'roo leather is very, very strong , but it's also thinner than what the cowhide they were using at the time. Whether or not they decided in the beginning that they were going to limit the air pressure, or if they had issues with the initial production, I've not heard or seen one way or another. It's very light weight, and with the right bladder very responsive. As far as air pressure use the "rule of thumb" and you should be alright.
