The North Face Snowday
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.

You'll never have to worry about frozen liquid in your hydration pack with the Snowday from The North Face. Utilizing the HTR heated hydration system, it monitors the temperature of the bladder hose and actively heats it when the temperature drops close to freezing. Polarguard insulation around the hydration compartment and hose sleeve further protects precious fluids.

The North Face Snowday Hydration Pack's electric-heated hydration system keeps the water flowing when you head out for a sub-zero dawn-patrol ski tour. Its HTR heating system is powered by four AA batteries, and keeps your drinking tube and 100oz bladder from freezing when the temps are so low that your breathe freezes in front of you. The Snowday's stowable hip-belt and compression straps make it comfortable to carry your day-touring gear in its 730cu inches of storage space.
