RESERVOIR & TUBE CLEANING
The best way to care for your reservoir is to clean and dry it after every use, especially if you fill the reservoir with anything other than water. However, if a reservoir has not been cleaned after every use, and mold or discoloration develops:

  1. Use hot water and a CamelBak Cleaning Tablet. (Or use 2 tablespoons of baking soda or bleach instead of CamelBak Cleaning Tab.) Mix the solution inside your reservoir and elevate the reservoir above the tube and Big Bite Valve. Pinch the bite valve, allowing the solution to flow into the drink tube and fill the bite valve.
  2. Let the reservoir and cleaning solution sit in the reservoir and drink tube for about 30 minutes.
  3. Wash the reservoir with hot water and mild soap. Be sure to completely rinse away the cleaning solution in the reservoir and drink tube before using again. You can also use CamelBak brushes from our Cleaning Kit to scrub your reservoir and drink tube. Brushes are the best way to ensure you are scrubbing all of the areas of the reservoir clean.
  4. Once the reservoir is clean, be sure to air dry overnight so no moisture is trapped inside, which can cause mold to grow.

These steps will make your reservoir safe for use. If there are still spots left behind, these are permanent mold stains that may not be removable. However, your reservoir is still safe and usable after you’ve cleaned it.

        I bought the thermo insulated tube for hiking and kayaking. I hike all seasons.First day out it was 18° and about half way through the hike I noticed the tube and bite valve were frozen. I haven't used it in warm weather yet which is why I gave this product 3 star's. Camelbak has alot of great stuff but this ain't one of them. At least not in freezing conditions. Either way, it's still useful(summer and spring) but I wouldnt recommend buying it.

            Drink often if just a sip and blow the fluid back into the reservoir bag to keep the tube clear - helps to prevent freezing. I have used the zoid for many years and have removed the reservoir and insulated tube with the black cover in other packs for hut trips. Works well. I think they need to redesign the insulated tube as wind probably penetrates the insulation on the tube. Better then other products out there for sure

                My wife and I have just returned from Kilimanjaro. This product was bought due to the low temperatures experienced on 'summit night'. Unfortunately, despite using the insulating cap, no water was available above 5,000m. Obviously we had other water sources, but was very disappointing. Cannot recommend for sub-zero expeditions.

                Doesn't work if it is cold

                      I need water when I ski backcountry and unfortunately this product doesn't work even at 32 degrees. It appears there are a couple spots where the line freezes up - at the bite valve (even with cover on it) and possibly where the line exits the pack. Not sure of the fix but maybe a wider diameter tube would slow the freezing process to longer than the time between drinks. Frequent consumption delays tube freezing but at some point its just not practical. I would echo the other reviewers question: What was low temp rating for this product? I am convinced that if Cambelbak thought this was important they could easily improve this product. I am a huge fan of their hydration systems. There is nothing better.

                      I trialled my Camelbak Antidote Thermal Control Kit on a 24k run in February (-10 degrees Celsius), and by the time I reached 4k my insulated tube was frozen, along with its contents. I love the quick connect feature, but the reason for purchase was to eliminate or at the very least, minimize the occurrence of my hydration line freezing. What is the temperature rating for this equipment? What could I do differently to get the proposed benefits of this product?
