Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great idea, subpar implementation The insulation material itself works great. However, if you've got the right-angle bite end the cover (where freezing is most likely to happen) doesn't work. It's also very difficult to install on the tube, requiring that you remove one end connector. It's a bit easier to do so with some heat, but I found it was still pretty tough. It works, but I'd probably just get some cheap insulation material instead depending on which bite end version you have.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy another insulator Had this product for about a year. It does a great job keeping your water from freezing overnight. The coldest I've encountered using this product is a 20F degree low overnight.,,It keeps the water a little cooler during the day.,,,,So what's the problem you ask. Durability and abrasion resistance. I'd only recommend if you'll be using it for biking or casual walks. If your out backpacking etc. plan on it lasting no more than a couple outings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tube insulator worthwhile The drink tube insulator works great. The bite valve cover is a bit of a disappointment since it won't stay closed, generally popping open after just a few minutes of hiking. This results in freezing at the bite valve despite blowing air back into the tube, plus prevents the secondary usage of keeping the bite valve clean. Worthwhile purchase for the tube insulator, but I'll be looking for a better bite valve cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've seen some reviews that state that the hose does not I've seen some reviews that state that the hose does not insulate, apparently they dont know that you have to pour warm water for it not to freeze, I used it on 5,250 meters above sea level at - 18 ºC and it worked just fine, only the water in the bite valve froze but as soon as it was in contact with the warm water ther was no problem at all I used it for 7 hours and it never froze, it only got cold

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get's the job done. Not much can be said about this insulator. It helps to prevent your hydration tube from freezing and helps a bit with keeping your water cool. However, the black color isn't the best in the summer. ,,,,The Bite Valve cover is very useful. No more grit after setting your pack down.,,,,It must be a decent product, I just ordered my second one for my other hydration system. Thanks Moosejaw & Platypus!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from useless Tried in -23 Celsius degrees (-9 Farenheit) and -17 (1 Farenheit), hydration pack line froze both times after about 40 min. Insulator also becomes rock-hard and very hard to bend. To be fair no other system I've tried has worked so far in that kind of cold.
