When shooting "Down Range" in the 112 degree NM summer for days on end, we 
used to keep all of our 220 film for the day and one small cold bottle of 
water in those little insulated bags made for day trips with baby bottles. 
Never had much of a problem with colour shift and always had water that 
wasn't too hot to drink by the end of the day when away from the truck. One 
bag for unexposed and one bag for exposed film, kept everything tidy too. 
Not as convenient as having it all in a clear ziplock for hand inspection 
at an airport carry on, but you can prepack the rolls you will need each day.

Have fun, stay safe take lots of good photos.
