    I just packed my camelbak yesterday full of ice, and it was warm in 45 min. (111 deg heat). Fantastic solution, thanks very much.
    We don't ride to add days to our life, we ride to add life to the days we have left here.

    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.

    Great idea.
    A cairn is a man-made pile (or stack) of stones.
    Cairns are used as trail-markers in many parts of the world.:thumbsup:

    The car shades work well as reflectix, I use some in my hammock when backpacking to keep my feet warm. I've used both reflectix brand and a cheap car shade. The reflectlix works a tad better when temps start getting down in to the 30's and below, but other than that it's pretty much the same stuff. I'm gonna cut down some and see how it goes. I've got some reflectix pieces laying around and some old car shade, I may do a comparison to see how it holds up.
