iv got a bigger pack if im going back country to bring the things that are necessary for such adventures, otherwise I use a really low profile camelback. I like to stay hydrated and it is the most convenient way to carry water. Some days when we are more focused on having fun I will fill it with booze. But never on serious riding days.

I have a couple. A smaller one that I used to use at school and an Osprey Kode 38 that I was gifted.

Typically carry a GoPro (don't always want it on my helmet), tool, clif bars, jerky, gatorade, extra goggles/gloves (stuff happens, it's helped before), and that's about it. On a typical day. My friends don't like to stop so we just ride and ride and ride, eat/drink our snacks on the lift and ride again.

The Osprey I'll use on those days where I'm hiking a bit more. It's nice - a bit gnarly for me but it was a gift and I'll be damned if I don't get the proper use out of it.

It might be a bit cumbersome at times (it took me a few runs to get used to it) but on a full day of riding all over the place, I'd rather have it than not. I don't always know where I'll be riding / hiking / traversing with my friends, so I'd rather put up with a little discomfort and have what I need to keep myself fueled for the day.

As far as whether it affects my riding, I haven't noticed it.

I take a small camelbak with a power bar and a board tool, plus my phone n what-not. Maybe another layer if I think the weather looks sketch.

Cant be doing with a bottle bouncing around in my pockets.

Same for when I'm on the bike.

I'll ride with a camelbak that fits under my jacket to stay hydrated, when I am doing resort stuff and not always. It's more of a skin than a backpack though.

reasons TO carry a backpack:
- you have a DSLR in there and plan to use it
- you are doing a warmup run or two before head to lift accessible B/C
- that's about all I can think of... anything else should be able to stay in your car or the lodge

What about your pinhole camera and collection of nudie mags creeper?

And in addition to my other comment, I was very happy when my friend had a whole first aid kit with that cover that gives warmth or something(the gold kinda paper). When my GF got an accident by a skier who didn't know it's limits on a double black, I was happy to use it. (She did had to go to the hospital with the heli, but still). I don't think you could fit all that in you pocket.
