Posted:Has anyone ever thought about doing this before, tried it, or knows someone that tried it/uses it?
I'm putting together ideas for my new fire act and wanted a way of refuelling my mouth for fire breathing punctuations mid act, after the first mouthfull of fuel had been expelled.
It can take the tempo out of a performance; having to stop and take a mouthfull of fuel from a cup or a bottle, and I thought it would be pretty nifty to use a hydration bladder like the one below:
http://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/platypus-hoser-1-hydration-bladder-p126450 br> I use the Platypus bladders for snowboarding and festivals (for water, obviously ) and I totally trust them when they say that the seams are indestructible - so falls, drops and crushing the bladder doesn't cause leaks. Also the paraffin I use is safe to be stored in plastic.
The bite valve is ideal for making sure the fuel doesn't escape. Doubly so if the bladder is attached lower on the person than the bite valve ( like the small of your back).
So, any thoughts? Anyone have experience with this kind of gimmick in an act? Or even better, has anyone got an alternative solution?

Posted:We use the normal rucsack for it, modded to look good and with a good layer of denim-type stuff on the back. We've reinforced the connection of the tube to the camelback too (YAY for electrical tape!).
Works great in poi routines!
