When we go on SMRs, I fill it up with ice and water the night before and put the entire bag (including straps and all) into the fridge. In the early morning hours, I just pull it out and swing it over my back. It stays nice and cool for an extended period of time and before I had my hard CE-backprotector in, I could feel it and it also kept my back cool for a while.

yeah but could you imagine riding in the 100 degree weather and feeling like it's only 70 or 80 degrees? If I had the change laying around, I'd pick one up just to see how well it works. Too bad it weighs 10lbs fully loaded, though I'm guessing that is for the hydration model. I wonder how much the cooling only model weighs?

How come you all use bleach to clean the water bags? I just use a little dish soap and hot water. Never fill it with anything other than ice and water though.

i guess cuz i have also let mine sit in my truck all week after a mt bike race and it grew nasty lifeforms. the bleach got rid of it all. plus bleach is easier to rinse out than soap...when i used soap i couldn't get all the soap out.

If it gets 'gunky', bleach will kill the bacteria and fungus that has grown in it. Mine hasn't gotten that bad either but I've seen them nasty before and then it was a case for Bleach for sure. :laughing6
