Trust me, When you replace that black bladder (butyl rubber) With one of Titles latex orange replacement bladders you'll like the bag much better, BTW the bladder is sewn into the bag at the nipple of the bladder, you'll have to pull the threads holding the bladder on, But be very careful not to cut the leather, You can use a dental pick to pull up on and break each thread... Good Luck and happy baggin...Ralph

Thanks Ralph. I thought the black bladder was just glued in place so was a bit rough with it when taking it out but I think it's okay. I've actually got one of those orange bladders, I just need to get some rubber cement now.

Hi !! I have never used glue , all i do is put the bladder in the bag and line up the hole and valve by inserting an inflation needle, then pump a little air in to straighten things up! then lace up and fully inflated!...I did one today in an addidas bag ....Took all of five minutes!!.....Hope this is of some use.

I will try your method on the next bladder replacement. Thinking about it, the bladder can't escape, it doesn't roll around, as the psi rises, the bladder is planted in place.. yep, this sounds like the ticket

Most bags are easy. Some bags are tougher than others. One large vintage Everlast had me cursing.

from what fingers was saying, I understand it as; it is not necessary to have the bladder air valve tip coming thru the hole. Just have the bladder lined up to the hole in order get the needle in. Whether or not the valve is inside or outside the bag. Sounds comparable to a plumbing trick you would learn from an "Old Plumber" to make it easy and work. ( not saying that fingers is old )
