Hydration packs?

Who uses them? What's good? What's not? I'm currently looking to replace: http://www.tripleblaze.com/blog/wp-c...iking-gift.jpg that bag after I had a slight misfortune with pavement. I've currently found this bag: http://www.rei.com/zoom/xx/afc3067c-...3fffbc.jpg/440 which has similar spec's to the old Day Star I had, but also found this rig: http://www.heartmonitors.com/media/c...-black-web.jpg. I'm luke warm on the last bag because I need to be able to stuff knee pads and a rain coat into that bag, but I'm also having a helluva hard time finding that Aventura at the moment. Which brings me to this question, what are everyone's thoughts on hydration pack's similar to that?

do you have a separate backpack? or snowboard pack?

I just picked up a 70oz camel back reservoir for like $25, stuffed it in my dakine board pack and it works great, although if you don't have a hydration sleeve built in, it could be a hassle.

don't the cheap camelbak's for like $40 have enough room for a coat and pads? maybe pick up a $.99 carabiner so you can hang your pads.

I always loved my Camelback. It came with enough room for a small lunch and some energy bars. I don't know about how much padding you're carrying, but I used carabiners to strap my helmet, gloves, and some other junk to it when I was hiking.

I've got a separate pack I use for snowboarding, but I want to find a smaller pack for summer biking use and such.

CamelBak® - Packs

You can sort by activity on the left. I picked up a small one for my trip to Breck and loved it.

I use my Camelbak Mule for boarding, hiking & biking. It's got the 100oz Omega bladder with Hydraguard (antimicrobial coating). I have an extra bladder & big bite valve just in case of a puncture or something nasty grows in there (easy treated with a bleach wash, thanks to Camlebak customer service for explaining the bleach wash process to me). It doesn't have a whole lot of storage space, but it's easily enough to store an extra thermal or sweatshirt, energy/protein bars, a flask & keys. Plus it's bright orange with silver reflective stripes, helping visibility a little more, both on & off the mountain.
