Here's what other sites are saying:
The CamelBak PowderBak is a hydration system that's actually integrated into a full-zip mid-layer. Core body temperature enhances freeze resistance.
The CamelBak PowderbakTM Hydration vest integrates wearable hydration into a full-zip mid layer.
Rather than dragging a bulky backpack on the lift, zip up the CamelBak PowderBack Hydration Pack, and keep your H20 thawed and close at hand. This vest-style hydration pack has a padded pouch just below the top of your shoulders that holds an integrated hydration reservoir. This feeds an insulated drinking tube that snakes over your shoulder. Lightweight breathable mesh gives this low-profile, tight-fitting vest a stretchy construction so that you can easily fit it over a baselayer or mid-layer and enjoy the snow without feeling overheated or dragged down by your needs for water.

Reservoir Cleaning: The best way to care for your reservoir is to clean and dry it after every use, especially if you fill the reservoir with anything other than water. However, theoretically, if someone didn't clean it after every single use, and mold or discoloration happens to develop... Use hot water and a CamelBak Cleaning Tablet. (Or Use 2 tablespoons of baking soda or bleach instead of CamelBak Cleaning Tab.) Mix the solution inside your reservoir and hold it up above your head while you pinch the bite valve, allowing the bleached water to run through the tube. Let the reservoir and cleaning solution sit for about 30 minutes. Wash the reservoir with hot water and mild soap. Be sure to completely rinse away any bleach or cleaning solution before using again. You can also use CamelBak brushes from our Cleaning Kit to scrub your reservoir and tube. Brushes are the best way to ensure you are scrubbing all of the areas of the reservoir clean. Once the reservoir is clean, be sure to air dry the reservoir so no moisture is trapped inside, which can cause mold to grow. Allow to air dry overnight if possible. These steps will make your reservoir safe for use. If you have spots left from the mold, they will never come all the way out because the reservoir is permanently stained, but still safe and usable.
