Got camelbacks?

just curious to see if anyone else on here has a camelback waterpack and uses it on rides.

I picked up one today. A dark grey original 70oz one so it's pretty thing and fits under my jacket. Has a bottle holder in the bottom middle of the back and small pocket I can fit my iPod in. Not a bad little pack.

Anyone else use them?

yes, cameltoes are good.

camelbacks are less sexually pleasing, but probably have some sort of fanbase.
its a backpack that has a bag of water and a looooong straw... basically

sweet. but I wouldn't want to be drinking a lot on a bike. it would just make me have to pee, and the vibrations from the bike would just make that excruciatingly painful. omgfullbladderzfail

I use one for trail riding, but I've never done that while riding the streets. We had posin' to do at all those gas stations on our 250 mile routes.

my mom got me one like 6 months ago for my bike. i can't find a practical time/place to use it though. Not only do I stop frequently enough on the street to never get thirsty, but I don't really see how I'd get that straw up under my full face helmet without losing a lot of focus and concentration on the road I'm riding.

i love mine, its great for riding way out in the sand dunes, having something to drink while tearing up the sand is great. beats having to ride back to the truck for water everytime you get thirsty. i am in the market for a new one tho. mine is 3 years old and it started leaking a few weeks before christmas, the last time i rode.

i have on i use in the summer. At stops i ask the gas station if i can fill it with ice from their soft drink machine, never been turned down i then buy a bottle of water to keep filled. they work great. a tip tho. after u take a drink. blow back thru the nozzle/hose back into the camelback so that there is no water in the hoze that gets hot.

I love mine. I usually use it on long rides though. It is really easy to drink and ride too. The bite down mouthpiece is really easy to put under your helmet and just take a drink.

what he said. My gf got me one a while ago and although I don't use it a lot, it is nice if you go on long rides.
