As a followup to the Winter Hydration thread.

People at Backpackinglight.com use Reflectix for many insulation needs. You can find it at Home Depot.

So, if someone wants to try it, they could use Reflectrix to insulate their backpack bladder compartment. That along with an insulated tube and blowing the water back into the bladder might work.
