    I use the Podium Chill in the winter to keep my water from freezing. Through it in the frame bag and it will keep water in liquid form for hours, even at below zero temps.

    Podium Chill is no match for winter (and longer rides). The water will eventually turn into slushy and – worse – the valve will freeze rendering the content inaccessible. I may try this new option next winter season. Also, this may help to keep the valve clean in muddy conditions when – again – the content of the bottle mounted on the frame is virtually inaccessible.
