Throw it away, and get another brand of hydration pack. CamelBak supports the greenies who don't want to let us use our trails.

Every little bit helps our cause.

Dude that was SO LAST WEEK they pulled the SC adds and how they have adds in CycleNews...

I use a little bit of bleach and alot of hot water and then use some lemon when I'm rinsing it out .
There is a plastic thingie that you should buy that you stick inside of it to hold it open so it dries out better.... and there is also a long pipe cleaner that you can use to clean the tube.

Kyron..got any info or links to show they pulled the adds? I hadn't heard that yet...Thanks


I've also heard that after you clean your resivoir out you should put a couple teaspoons of H2O in it and keep it in the freezer...any thoughts....

I read somewhere online a letter from the presdient (?) of camelbak explaining how it was their ad agency who was putting the ads into the SC's mag and how I think they got rid of that agency(?)..... I do read their mag at work and the adds have been gone for a long time...

They now support the BRC and have adds in that mag


I thought YOU would know more about this than me

That's a compliment! I'm usually more than a week behind!

Good to hear that they have made efforts to be more proactive with their ad campaign.

When I'm not using my camel back, or other bladder system, I just thought it in a Tupperware container, and throw it in the freezer.

No more mold for me! Works like a charm.

clean it w/ a teaspoon of bleach and plenty of water....then many many times you much wach it w/ salt water. Salt water also kills the rubber taste wash it w/ salt water before and after each use too.

That a lot of work
If you just let it dry out it will not mold. bend a hanger so it fits inside the bladder so it gets air inside to dry.
I've used the same bladder for almost 3 years...
