Question Camel pack

Hey all, I'm not use to riding in Texas heat yet and thought I should get a camel pack before it is too late and I get heat stroke while riding. Anyone know of a good place to get one?

Ive always wondered if any leathers have a camelpack built into a speedhump, or a speed hump that you can use as a backpack or somthing..

cycle gear usually has some also. check out the website for camelpak. they make dozens of versions. my advice is get either the smallest one or a big one like the h.a.w.g.

i have a m.u.l.e. that i take on trips to corpus. the 3 liter pack is wayyyyyyy more than i need for a 4 hour ride. if i actually drank all that i would spend more time stopping for breaks than i would just to have a soda while getting gas. the bigger ones are nice just fo rthe cargo factor.

otherwise get a tiny one with a 1.5 or 2 liter capacity like the skeeter or whatever, the classic one is really good too. it sounds like thats all you need if you just want it for daily city riding.

on my last ride to corpus i had my pack (which i also got at cycle gear) filled with ice and water, under my jacket, and it actually kept me cooler....but i use my pack all the time...curing a hangover, mtb races, sitting on the couch, but the better half won't let me use it at dinner.

Filling the pack with mostly ice and a little water on summer rides is great - sipping water throughout the day is much better for you than downing a bottle at a stop.

Keeping the water cold helps regulate your body temp, too. I've gone through a 70oz pack two or three times on a 200-mile ride.
