Default Thirst while Riding

Did a search but didn't find much. How do you guys and gals deal with thirst while boarding. I've seen some people ride with open beer/energy cans and it can be pretty funny when they fall.

I'm considering developing a flexible bottle that you can store your liquids in. Just curious on what your input would be. Would you purchase such a bottle to bring some liquor, water, Gatorade, etc. on the slopes?

Something like:

i got the same platypus. it is awesome. easy to stuff in your jacket and holds a fuckton of water. super strong and won't break -- have fallen strait on it multiple times. also there's an extension that turns it into a camelback if you want that

I got this too but don't carry it. Maybe I should...

Gum seems to work OK for short term and I also carry water / gatorade in my pack, when I have a pack. And a flask

I don't like the extra weight at all. Proper hydration the night before makes a huge difference. I usually drink water/oj/a beer on the way to the mountain and parking lot, then riding hard and going till lunch is no problem. I get thirsty but its not unbearable and its better than ridiing weighed down.

If you ride with a bunch of shit anyway, then the bottle you showed in the pic works great, I have several of those for my dog's summer hiking pack as well as a couple extra I carry in my own for her on longer hikes.

I would be down for something like this. At the moment i get Aquarius - an sports drink sold here in Japan, in a 200ml or so plastic pouch thing like that Platypus.

Would be great to have a reusable solution - as long as it is tested for direct falls on it etc
