Camelbak?

Anyone using a camelbak? Cause dam... it was hot and dehydrating yesterday. Wondering if its worth the effort or if the harness is in the way.

I use a small Camelback most of the time I kite in salt water. Definitely worth the effort, especially if you're on salt water for more than a couple of hours.

Only time the harness seems to get in the way is when I'm coming in after riding and one of the shoulder straps gets a little loose. It's never interferred with riding though.

One thing I forgot to mention is that I throw the Camelback in the freezer the night before I go kiting. The next day the Camelback is a solid chunk of ice. As you ride, the ice melts and you have real cold refreshing water in the Camelback.
