I have a camelbak bladder I keep in my tank bag. It works really well. The only thing I'd advise is don't put anything except water in there..

I have one that I got from Cycle Gear, it was the smallest one I could find but holds 70ozs. It proved itself useful on the 100+ degree days and after a few long rides.

I never really cared for them but bought one for a trip to Austin. Worked very well and wasn't uncomfortable like I thought it would be - didn't even know it was there. Just be careful and don't drink too much water as I did or you will flush out minerals/salts and get really bad cramps. I only filled mine with ice and a little water...provided cold water til the very end of the 70oz in 100+ degree weather

If you can wait, CG has sales/specials from time to time. I got mine for $15 lol

lol, you'd have to drink a couple gallons before you'd flush out electrolytes. REALLY bad advise. you started cramping cause you sweated out your electrolytes. on top of that, if you sweated that bad that day, it is a real good thing you had water on your back cause you prolly would have gotten dehydrated.

Don't forget to "push" the water from the tube back into the bladder when you drink or your next drink will be a blast of hot water. Especially on really hot days. FYI.

i have one. used it almost everyday and keeps the water pretty cold considering that the sun hits it almost all the way home. add couple pieces of ice. good to go for a couple of hours. i think it was like 15$ holds half gallon
