Upgrade your CamelBak hydration reservoir (sold separately) to handle extreme winter and summer weather with the Antidote™ Thermal Control kit™.
The Camelbak Thermal Control Kit is an excellent way to maintain the temperature of the liquids in your pack even when the weather is extreme. In especially cold conditions the insulation on the tube helps keep the contents from freezing, and in hot conditions it helps to keep the liquid cooler. A bite valve makes it easy to grab a sip, and a cover lets you protect the valve when not in use.

Just got back from a week in Montana skiing and snowmobiling and this kept my water drinkable in all conditions. Even on the coldest mornings (low teens) water stayed liquid perfectly. End cap is nice and big so it's really easy to use with even the heaviest mittens or gloves. I have already recommended to a few friends. Get one, you won't be disappointed.
Love this thing. I was wondering if there was a way to keep my normal CamelBak from freezing up on the mountain. This definitely did the trick. And it's only $20! Worth every penny IMO.
I used it on 2 late season hunting trips. One was 14 days in -20 C northern canada. Other was -5 to -10 also northern canada.
It would freeze almost instantly in the line. I tried blowing the water back into the reservoir after sips and that helped.. but it still froze.. It did help if i filled the reservoir with warm water off the stove. But eventually it would still freeze in the line.
I would say this product is probably rated around 0'Celcius.. But any colder than that and you might as well just bring a water bottle. Which is what i had to do on both trips.
