Strength:

none

Weakness:

freezes in mild weather

Product is a POS. Freezes in 30 degree weather. Have to blow out the supply line, but it will still freeze if not used within about 15 minutes or so. Bite valve then tears when trying to un-freeze it, rendering it leaky. Camelbak made a worthless product that does not work as advertised. Plus they do not respond when contacted on their website.

Strength:

Integrates easily with existing hydration packs
Keeps the bitev valve clean

Weakness:

Resistance to Freezing

I bought it more for winter use when snowboarding out West. Attached to my existing Camelbak Cloudwalker I use for summer riding.

I thought it would totally prevent freezing in the line, but sadly it didn't. The only way to avoid freezing was to either lift the tube up and let it drain back into the reservoir or remember to use it every 15 minutes or so, that way it won't have a chance to freeze in the valve.

Oh I also destroyed a bite valve trying to break up the ice inside it with my teeth. Probably not a good idea in retrospect.

With all this said I still think its worth the purcahse. It makes more of a difference in the summer by keeping the water cool.

Strength:

Does a good job of keeping the water cool.
Keeps the drinking end clean.
Pretty basic and easy.

Weakness:

Hmmm. Maybe a little heavier insulation

This thing rocks. I highly, highly recommend it. I used it on a couple cyclotours and what a difference! First, the water in the tube stayed cooler - no more gulps of pee warm watter. Second, it kept the bite valve clean. I was living and working abroad, but even back home in the states it's such a good idea. Remember this product next time your bite valve is dragging on the ground of some nasty bathroom.

Outstanding.
