Default Anyone board with a backpack?

I did it for the first time this weekend when the place I went to ran out of locker space and I was surprised that I didn't even notice it for most of the day. The only time it became annoying was getting on lifts. Anyone else ride with a backpack and if so what kind?

I was using a north face jester not really a riding backpack.

Depending on what your carrying, I recommend a camelbak zoid or some other camelbak.

It gives you easy access to water, which honestly for the first year or two i never realized how dehydrated i was after 4 hours out there...i just took my zoid out for the first time last week and drank all 72 oz in 3 hours.

The Zoid atleast comes with a decent area to put some stuff, mostly food..i stuffed some granola bars, etc in it. You couldnt fit an entire shirt or fleece or anything in it though, probably some food, maybe extra goggles thats about it.

The Zoid is nice because its a low profile, so you dont have to worry about it as much on the lift and you can easily fit it under your jacket/shell.

Yea not sure if you buy just the bladders if they come with the insulated sheathing on the tube or not, the Zoid does and its practically impossibly for it to freeze.

As a beer brewer, I am an expert on the topic. I assure you that beer is mostly water and makes you smarter.
