This isn't a do I take a bottle or bladder thread!
Assuming I'm taking a bladder, do I take my 2l or would a 3l be safer for September?
One obviously weighs less than the other, but I don't want to run out.

Nearly every year since 2006, often walking more than one route. 2018 will be Camino #14.

In my opinion 2L is plenty. But you know, everybody is different. I'm not a big water drinker when I walk. I usually just carry an 8 oz bottle.

An empty 3 liter bladder is not significantly heavier than a 2 liter. Plus you do not have to fill it up to use it... you can be flexible in choosing just how much you want to carry or not carry. :)

I imagine September temps would be somehow similar to May/June whe I walked Madrid. And I sweat and drink a lot!!! I never carried more than 1,5l (3x0,5l plastic flasks) and never drank all three of them.
Hope that helps!

I went last Sept, I took a 2L and it was fine. There was some long hot days, and if I go in that time of year again I would probably take my 3L, but I like to drink lots of water. I agree with @davebugg.
