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?

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?
