Great idea, subpar implementationThe 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.

Buy another insulatorHad 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.

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!
