All Set for Snowboard Season...

Picked up one of these SnoBlast packs. I use a CamelBak Mule for mountain biking, but the one I use doesn't have an insulator for the drinking tube. You simply activate one of those hand warmer packets and put it in the special pocket and it keeps the water from freezing in the drinking tube. That's happened to me several times last season.
With shipping, this SnoBlast was $41.
These guys want $70 for one. Not to be confused with the 100 oz version. Bought the 70 oz that was offered.
Arc'Teryx? Yes, I found a few that I liked -- but for $160 USD I could not justify this time.

The Therminator™ Harness is a fully insulated harness that has a pocket for a handwarmer next to the tube where it exits the harness to keep it from freezing. The bite valve and delivery tube are fully enclosed. Te delivey tube is insulated in neoprene and the reservoir is insulated with a closed-cell foam barrier.
