A camelbak that wont freeze.

Hey im looking for a CB that the water wont freeze in the tube, mouth piece when I got to the mountain like my current one, I was looking at the CB stealth because its well low profile and I don't really want bulk. What do you guys use or suggest. thanks.

If you find one, tell me about it.

Water freezes when it gets cold, so short of blowing the water back and draining the mouthpiece, you're going to need a heated cable to keep the tube warm.

Also, I found buying a 100ml bladder is the smartest.... It weighs nothing and if you don't want 100ml, don't fill it all the way.

My backpack has a sleeve in the left strap to accommodate the bladder bite and tube. It won't completely prevent freezing, but it does help because you can zip it closed to keep it out of the wind.

I'm also interested in your find...
Actually saw this one at the Miami Peter Glenn. The salesman assures me the insulated tube wont freeze. Looks slim, comfortable and will ride without notice. However, the $55 bucks out of pocket will be quite noticeable
Here it is: Camelbak Zoid | Peter Glenn

This will not keep water from freezing by itself. The rubber cap is practically useless, I feel it attracts the cold more than repel it.

You can insulate an object all you want, but if it doesn't have a heat source it will freeze - more insulation will just make it take longer. Honestly I think the best solution is to just blow through the line after use.

I just don't want to take a bad fall and land on my back and pop the bladder. At 215 pounds landing on it.

Got an older CB with just the bladder, sleeve and straps and wear it under my coat; has never froze. Just unzip a bit pull it out and have a drink on the lift. Its a 2 liter and only fill it about 1/3 or 1/2 so there's plenty of give when I've landed on my back...has never burst or leaked in 5 years.
