I'm looking for a good hydration sack to use when lightweight hiking and running. I've been looking at something like this:<br><br><img alt="" src="http://www.thenorthface.com/media/gear/catalog/APJ9/APJ9-45X_mag.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
Ideally I could do with being able to carry about 2 litres of juice/water and a lightweight waterproof.<br><br>
Has anyone used anything like these before, which models would you recommend?

I have never used one, I just thought others have but I think they would be more familiar with what you're talking about if you call it a camelback or something in the topic. Maybe. Perhaps meri and altoids can answer. Also, SGH might have used something like that.

It looks a lot like my camel back - I think I have run 5,000 miles in it. The one thing to keep in mind is storage (Other than H20) capacity. Mine holds 70 ounces of water, but I only have room in the zipper compartment for a little baggy of Toilet paper, and a few gels. Hiking you may want to have a tad more room for other things.

We just bought a CamelBack yesterday for our friend's birthday. We bought him a small one for skiing -- it holds 1.5L and is small enough to fit under his jacket if he wants.<br><br>
At the shop, we also saw the Dakine brand and theirs looked good as well, but we liked it that the CamelBack comes with a lifetime guarantee for the bite valve.<br><br>
One of my running buddies has started wearing one that snaps around her waist, but it doesn't seem ideal. She has to stop and walk to drink from it.
