    Will be starting on a new job soon that's 10 mi. (16 km) away from home, so I'll probably be ride my
    road bike at least 2x a week. For that, I got a new Camelbak Blowfish so I can fit all my clothes
    for the day in it. This thing is awesome with lots of room. I like the new Omega mouth too.

    You say "2 times a week, why not everyday?" I'll be riding the mountain bike the rest of the days
    that's why! :)

    I've had the (old) Mule, which is good enough for the trails for me.

    An additional tip for those Omega reservoirs: They make great ice packs for reducing injury-
    related swelling.

    I'm recovering from surgery on both knees and have been icing them regularly to keep down on the
    inflammation. I was getting tired of dealing with leaky zip lock bags, frozen peas and re-useable
    icepacks that don't last very long. I was thinking of looking for a sturdy easy-to-refill ice bag at
    the local pharmacy when I realized I had something that fit the bill sitting right inside my
    Camelback.

    I have a MULE that is 3 years old and going strong. I've actually flipped and landed on it; 215lbs
    and a nice drop and no damage (to the pack!!).

    Schweeeet! Bill The mind serves properly as a window glass rather than as a reflector, that is, the
    mind should give an immediate view instead of an interpretation of the world.
