Hydration. CamelPak
 
Hey guys, Im just looking for advise on something. I am looking for a hydration pack to use when i ride so i always have water with me. i want something thats not too small but cant be too big. any suggestions.

I use the Camelbak Zoid. Its made for skiing/snowboarding use and its pretty small, but holds plenty of water, i think its 72 oz

I was thinking about getting something to keep my hydrated while riding because I never ever want to go in when I'm on the hill. The only thing is I like riding without anything on my back. How big is the camelbak and how intrusive is it when you are riding?

I dont notice mine at all when im wearing it.

Holds 1.5L and the bag has enough space to fit wallet/keys/camera/phone etc. Made by Kathmandu.

Camelbak Zoid, that is all you need. Its the perfect size and can carry other stuff as well if you want.

I have the Camelbak Scorpion. It is pretty decent but I wish I went with the Zoid because it is a bit smaller

What about something larger that distributes its weight around a larger area? I have a Dakine Helipack (http://www.dakine.com/snowboard/packs/snow/heli-pack/) with a 2 liter Platypus bladder (http://www.cascadedesigns.com/Platyp...Zip-SL/product) in it.

The left shoulder strap has a channel to hold the bladder tube & nozzle.
You can also rig the bag to hold your snowboard (vertically) in case you have to hike a ways back to the bus/car/condo

I go with these types of packs for backcountry. Hydration packs for the resort

I've got a camel pack about the size of the one in pic. It doesnt have a sheath for the tube though and i hear they tend to freexe. Has anyone tried any makeshift soulutions?
