The higher end Camelbacks have a valve that shuts off the flow to the bite valve to prevent this. Or you cna buy the cheapest one and get the valve as an add-on.

If you've ever seen me dress (or ski) you'll know that I don't give a crap what I look like : .

Check out the "STASH" packs. Great hydration system. Insulated hose that zips into the insulated shoulder strap.
