I have rode these things hard for two years, the black pant my be mostly wore off, but that's about all that is wrong with these. They slam into rocks and keep on rolling. They feel much sturdier than the candies, and have a lower possible setting for release if you want that.

I just love this, if you don't have one, get it! Nothing worse than bending down to fiddle with a ski boot and winter and getting drenched by your camelbak, NOTHING!

As for issues with freezing, I always open my bit valve up with my hand after I am down, and raise it above my head, this gets most of the water out f the lock area, the bite valve, and out of the tube, the places it is most likely to freeze in. Alternative to that, I make sure and take a sip on every chairlift, or every few hundred yards skinning, keeping things from freezing up.

High in caffeine, which is good, but also a ton of just straight sugars. The gels Powerbar makes have a much better content of carbs, but these are like 35g of carbs, 34 g. of sugars. Not the best mix.

They taste good, (I got the cola)but watch out for the crash if these alone are used for extended activates, like things lasting 3 plus hours, couple them with some good long carbs!
