RE: [RC] camelbacks - Pam Bailie

Hydration packs work great - I use the ultimate pack.  They are designed for
runners so hold lots of water with no bulk and they have the bite-valve.
They have a clear plastic liner that rolls to make a seal (don't overfill)
and I have not noticed any aftertaste. Pam

I drink much better out of a camelback bite-valve.  It's so available, and 
for me it's easier to suck down   water.  With water bottles I tend to tip 
my head back and gulp, and that can get me coughing, and I just don't drink 
as much that way. I think I swallow funny.  I use both, bottles or bladders,

depending on the situation and they both have their advantages and 
disadvantages.  Bladders are harder to fill up, and you can't keep track of 
how much water you've used very easily.  Some bladders have kind of a bad 
taste.  Platypus bladders have no taste, but they've been known to crack and

leak.  They're pretty reliable, but I always worry it's going to decide to 
leak during a race.
