Halthane - Thats a good idea! I've rode with a couple that did that. It seemed to work for them great.

Lil Brown bat - I've seen bikers with them but not a bulky one like that picture above was a smaller lower back pouch.. looked pretty nice and non intrusive.

The one pictured above seems like a good hiking pack.

They are not all huge like that. That one is trying to be a "backpack" as well. I have one, but don't use it to hold anything more than a few tiny things.

Here is one (same capacity => 100 oz) I have, the M.U.L.E. Note that this pic shows it stuffed to the gills....actually quite small and thin unless you pack it with a bunch of stuff (other than just the water reservoir).

I think this is the one I have (also a 100 oz. pack).

Now I haven't lived here in Seattle area long (just moved here), but back in Florida where I just moved from, I'd guess about 1/3 of riders had camelbak/hyrdation packs while riding bikes.
