I have one, but don't ever use it. Maybe it would make me faster:)

UCI did not allow camelbacks in races. I heard before that Msrco pantani was testing the Camelback in the windtunnel before UCI made it illegal

Initially, the UCI ruled that it was effectively a fairing being used to effect airflow, and was thus illegal. But when people said: "uh, no, we actually are drinking from it" they o.k.'d it. However, it does need to contain some water (or other drink) at the start, and cannot be inflated with air to give it shape.
