Camelbak's hydration packs are great for those who want to keep themselves hydrated at high altitudes. In a similar vein to their cycling hydration packs, both of these offerings are designed to help you keep everything under control while you ski.

The two packs difference in terms of the accessories and extra features they allow. You'll find way more extra features on the Zoid than the Bootlegger, but the Bootlegger is much easier on you going downhill.

Skiers looking for a lighter pack will prefer the Bootlegger while those who want something heavier but packed with features will want the Zoid.
