Question Searching for nice Hydration Backpack

Hey guys !
I'm looking for a nice hydration backpack that would fit a few of my basic needs.
I need it to be pretty small yet big enough to hold some basic stuff like goggles, gloves and even a hoodie, I need it to hold a snowboard, I need it to have a nice hydration bag built in with shoulder strap cover for the tube.

So far I have only found 1 nice bag to fit those needs which is the Camelbak Tycoon but I am looking for more options before I purchase it.

Any suggestions would be extremely appreciated, thanks !

I suspect the only packs I ever buy again will be Osprey, I have a Manta 30 for dayhiking, and I love it.

Check out their snow packs: Vertical Endeavors / Snowplay - Osprey Packs, Inc :2014: Official Site

The Reverb sports vertical and horizontal board carry, insulated hydration and looks like exactly what you're looking for. Lifetime guarantee, if you fuck it up, you send it to them and they repair it by hand for free.

Let me start out by saying that I HATE huge backpacks for athletic activities. I use a camelback MULE when I mountain bike (perfect size) and also when I ride alone in the mid atlantic, and I have a Dakine Heli-PRO DLX bag I use when I ride with friends or out west or elsewhere.

If you're looking for a bag to hold an extra layer, goggles and some small tools, the Dakine Heli-PRO DLX is just right for you. I routinely carry a small point and shoot camera, multi-tool, goggles, and lightweight extra layer, dry socks, and sometimes my lunch PLUS a 100oz hydration bladder (never fill it, that's way too much h20) and I never feel like it's too large and it cinches down when you don't need it. It is about 5 inches off of your back, has AWESOME wide padded waist staps, a breast strap, and an insulated hydration line sleeve inside the left shoulder strap. HIGHLY recommended. Love this thing so much I use it as my commuter bag to and from work. (and cos I got the sweet gray/lime green 2013 model and I Love to rep my snowboarding gear wherever possible)

Camelbak is guaranteed for life, nearly indestructible, and has a great policy on replacing broken buckles, zippers, etc.

I use the Dakine Heli Pro DLX as well and love it. Didn't think I would be comfortable with a pack, but I don't really notice it is there most of the time.

Never have a need for hydration packs or backpacks unless I ride side/back country. I just don't get it. just grab a cup of water from the tap. There are water faucets all over the place. I hate having extra shit hanging on my back...

100% agreed. I feel like people think it makes them look more committed or something to the sport. But in reality if you're resort riding it makes no sense to me to even have one. Instead, these people often come across to me as trying to use them as style or image. In reality there's no need to constantly drink water all day, you're just gonna need to take more bathroom breaks which is slower than stopping for a drink every few hours. I'd love to hear from people who constantly wear them as to why because to me it just doesn't make sense.

Its a physiological thing. I ride better by staying hydrated. Nothing to do with style, I wear mine I side my jacket anyway.
