personally, I wouldn't buy anything but a high quality hydration pack (camelbak, dakine, etc). The cheap ones probably will pop...and freeze...and make the water taste like plastic/chemicals. The cheap ones also have small fill holes that make it difficult to fill at a water fountain and their screw tops are flimsy/leaky. Not recommended.
Good points, but the way im looking at it, ill buy the cheap one in toronto before i leave for utah and if it breaks ill get a nice one for cheaper in utah then i would in toronto. Its crazy the difference in price, some things made in canada are cheaper in the US.

If you can winter mountain bike you can snowboard with one. When biking the only issue has been the frozen valve, the water never freezes with the body heat.

Try Amazon? That's where I bought mine and it was way cheaper than the retail price.

For anyone curious, I have an MEC hydration pack; very competitive price point versus camelback, haven't had any problems with it yet, other than, a plastic taste when I first got it.
