|Steezy&Low||I have this one http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_PSkxCvH2u8...0/camelbak.jpg but the only minus about it is that the water freeze's any good techniques? i snowboard in 20 degree weather most of the time|

I've got a CamelBak Snoblast, a new model that came out this year. It's got some kind of thermal sleeve that goes over the tubing to prevent the water from freezing. Took it up on the slopes, and the water in my tubing froze. On another day, it didn't.
So yeah, I dunno. I like the pack anyway. Got it for 60 bucks at Dick's.

|C-dubbin||I have a camelback bladder in my Burton Pack and when it got below 15 or so out the tube would freeze which meant no water until I went inside at the end of the day. Luckily they make an insulated tube that has a big rubber cap over the bite valve. Since I bought that....no more frozen water.|

I think I'm gonna go with a platypus 1.8 or 2.0 litre. Now who has the best prices on them? I don't think ebay has them cheap.
So far looks like this site has the best price I've seen. Hoser by Platypus and other Bladders

They make an insulated bladder, but its probably not necessary for resort conditions. The water in the feed tube did start to freeze up on me one day, but a few minutes in a warm environment (lodge) fixed that right up.

|Magnum626||I have that Dakine Heli Pro pack. What size bladder do you guys recommend? And does it really matter what brand? Camelbak, Platypus or any other brands I should look into?|
