Brother from another mother!+1 on the collapsible water bottle for hydration. My friends are always trying to bum a sip of water off of me.
Sounds like I'm spoiled riding in the Rockies. 15K is more than enough out here, and Gore Tex gets sweaty fast. I can't even imagine riding in the rain. It snows here in the summer. Definitely match your outerwear to the conditions you'll see.
