I purchased the North Face "Snowday" hydration pack…
Price Paid: $150
I purchased the North Face "Snowday" hydration pack two years ago. When I first used it in Colorado it worked very well. The temps were between 5F-10F, and it kept my water ice free as advertised.
Then during a back country ski day, my back became soaked with water, due to the "quick disconnect" on the water reservoir breaking. I removed the QD and installed tubing for a working fix.
Now the power supply has quit. I opened it up to ring out the switch and found corrosion on the switch. Hopefully I can purchase a switch and radio shack and be good to go.
