    I just packed my camelbak yesterday full of ice, and it was warm in 45 min. (111 deg heat). Fantastic solution, thanks very much.
    I don't care what you ride or how you ride just as long as you ride.

    I handed out a half dozen of them at last nights ride, will be interesting to see the results. Packed my camelbak at 4pm and when I got home at 9pm the pack was still half full of cold water

    Awesome mod and recommendation. Now I think Yeti coolers is going to be upset with you! . Looks like the Double Reflective Insulation is about $25 for 4' of it, but if this works, well worth the price!!

    Thanks for sharing.

    You could always cut up one of those car shades you can buy at a dollar store. Looks very much like the same stuff.
