If you are forced to use one in such temps with no insulation remember to blow back the water from the tube into the bladder.

But if you buy one, completely fill it and test it by applying some pressure to the full reservoir. A couple friends of mine had to exchange theirs for new ones because the quarter-turn cap leaked under pressure. Mine was fine though haha.

i'm actually from canada but i'm going to lake tahoe next weekend. i'm staying overnight in seattle so i can fuck around the city and see what i can find. but can you guys give me a jist of this product as i'm on the website right now and i can't really see the inside of the bag or anything:

- is the bag strictly for thermal sustainability and padding? are there pockets or anything inside so i can put food or whatever else in? - plus my video card at work is fucked up so i can view youtube videos, which may/may not cover the interior of the bag

@newnew Yea the flagship REI store is right in downtown Seattle so hit that up if you can it's a pretty cool, huge store. There are a bunch of different CamelBak backpacks that you can find at REI or online that are various sizes and come with a reservoir. The one I have is called the Mule and it has a lot of different pockets and compartments to put all sorts of stuff. There is usually a main padded compartment specially made for the reservoir that has a slit for the tube to go through. It fits a surprising amount of random items for its size even while holding a 3L reservoir. So yea the pack is for holding/insulating the reservoir and also for holding whatever else you want. Hope that helps, good luck buying man.

the compartment where the reservoir goes into, i know it depends on the model, but for the most part, if that part is padded, i don't have to worry about the rest of the bag do i? like when i go boarding i fall on my back and random other falls when doing dumb shit. will it uphold? i was on the website and i clicked on the "winter" section, i'd like to avoid carrying around a full blown backpack if possible and just have something on the smaller side
