Rather than dragging a bulky backpack on the lift, zip up the CamelBak PowderBack Hydration Pack, and keep your H20 thawed and close at hand. This vest-style hydration pack has a padded pouch just below the top of your shoulders that holds an integrated hydration reservoir. This feeds an insulated drinking tube that snakes over your shoulder. Lightweight breathable mesh gives this low-profile, tight-fitting vest a stretchy construction so that you can easily fit it over a baselayer or mid-layer and enjoy the snow without feeling overheated or dragged down by your needs for water.

Sizing issues

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

I'm 5'10" 170 lbs and wear medium shirts, jackets, etc. and using their sizing chart, it recommended medium but when it arrived, the vest is a straightjacket at the upper chest, so I'm going to goto large. I read a similar complaint about this product, but after I ordered it. Have to return it = hassle.

And I wore the cb vest wearing a t-shirt, not a fleece or heavier full sleeve.

One of my best new gear additions!!

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Love this and it is so simple and easy to use. It is one of my most used snow activity items to have here in Vail! fits perfect and helps keep me hydrated here in the mountains. Highly recomend looking into this one. Lou

Would this be good to wear under a snow...

Would this be good to wear under a snow jacket? Or is it too bulky? I can't really tell what the back looks like from the picture...

As long as your jacket is sized appropriately, the PowderBak was designed for exactly what you're describing. Fill it up with 72 ounces of water (or your beverage of choice) and throw your shell on it--your water will stay warmer on a cold ski day, and you'll be grateful to not have an extra pack on.

Hope that helps!
