I have one of the updated CamelBak reservoir and they are so much better than the old ones. I highly recommend them.

CamelBak® - Antidote Reservoir 100 oz

my line always tends to freeze when using camel packs. Any suggestions?

Yeah, make sure you blow the liquid back through the line into the camelbak after you're done taking a sip. Should prevent freezing.

I really like my KLIM hydration reservoir, its easier to clean than the camelbak ones.

Amazon.com: Klim Hydrapak Reservoir - Clear: Automotive

Second the Dakine products, ive had my heli for 10 years. Used it for school and snowboarding and mtn biking

This does work, but just remember that if you blow too much that you will end up with air in your bladder which will then allow the water to 'slosh' around int he pack which is annoying.

I have never used a KLIM pack, so what makes it easier to clean than camelbaks?

If you do any backcountry mixed in with your resort riding I would seriously consider the Black Diamond Bandit pack with Avalung.

There seem to be multiple complaints about leakage from the quarter-turn cap, thoughts?
