Our reservoirs are equipped with a high protective neoprene sleeve around the tube to prevent the cold from freezing the water inside the tube, while we work tirelessly to make our reservoirs as reliable as possible, in extremely cold temperatures your water might freeze anyway.
So here are a few tips:
– Fill your hydration bladder with warm water (max 60° C / 140° F), which will take longer to freeze.
– Hold the hose upward with the bite valve open after drinking. This allows all the water to flow back into the bladder, minimizing the amount of water able to actually freeze in the hose.
– Blow back into the drink tube after you take a sip.
– Drink frequently (a sip every five minutes) to keep your water circulating.
– If your hose does freeze stick the hose down your back, between your body and backpack. Be sure the bite valve is in the ‘OFF’ position.
