    Does anyone know where you can get those backpack drink containers? You put the insulated drink container on your back and a straw is attached to it to sip from. I've seen the military use them when directing traffic for long periods. I know they get them at the PX. I think It'd be great to have one if trimming, mowing, etc. Wouldn't have to go back to the ice chest.

    The Camel Bak at is just what I was looking for. That 70 oz. size would be great in July.

    they work great for party beverages too... just dont expect to get the flavor out every....nothing like beer flavored water ;)

    On a serious note, i have a few for cycling and they work great.

    You could try an army / navy surplus store. I got issued two of them when I went to Bahrain.
