I've been hauling my bikes around on scads of different racks, and the SproketRocket has been the best by far. My bikes don't sway on this rack, even while hauling down the interstate at 80 mph. The adjustable cams allow for quick fitting and uber-easy loading and unloading, and a monkey could figure out how to install it. The lock cores are super easy to use, and keep creeps from swiping your steed. If you're questioning whether to buy this or go for a cheaper rack, compare a Camelbak vs. a hydration pack from Walmart. You won't be sorry you got this rack.

This thing is perfect for a day of skiing at the resorts. The 2L reservoir is enough to keep my hydrated for a day and there's enough room in the pack to keep an extra layer or two. At the end of the day, it expands to contain my helmet, goggles, and gloves and extra crap on the way home. As with all winter Camelbaks, the Therminator harness (zip up shoulder strap) and insulated tube work well to keep your water from freezing, a long, cold day will require you to shove a hand warmer by the tube to keep things moving.

I've been a Nalgene die hard for my water bottles for years, but after a friend gave me a 'Better Bottle' a couple of years ago I'm fully converted to Camelbak for all my hydration packs + bottles. They never leak, they don't break, and it's easy to access. For those that are environmentally-conscious, the Better Bottle is transitioning to be 'BPA-free.' Camelbak hopes this rolling transition will be completed before July '08. Personal favourite colours: ocean, fire, and green.

The Zoid is a fantastic pack. For this year's model, CamelBak made it a little bit bigger for your gear while still keeping the low profile. I'm able to keep it under my shell or outside, and it doesn't feel like I'm getting shoved off the lift.

The insulated tube and Therminator (yes, that's what they call it) Harness keep the pack from freezing the majority of the time, but on extra cold days be sure to throw a chemical hand warmer into the harness! There's a spot to handily stash the hand warmer, and you'll stay happy and very well hydrated.
