Hydration Reservoar?

What are these and how they used? http://www.nashbar.com/results.cfm?c...tion%20Systems


For my back pack or need something special? What's better, a camelback system under my back pack, or convert my back pack to hydro pack?


Just a though. Is enema bag of any use?

Bladders for Camelbaks.

Nothing prevents you from simply sticking the bladder in you backpack. Lots of backpacks / daypacks have the capability to carry a bladder, usually in a separate compartment or sleeve. These provide protection and keep the bladder from flopping around.

You could always just purchase a cheap Camelbak clone, cut that straps off and stick the bladder and sleeve in you pack. Or get the "Un-Bottle" (http://www.nashbar.com/profile.cfm?c...tion%20Systems)

you could have someone sew a sleeve into your pack to hold the bladder and then add a clip to your shoulder strap

i wouldn't recommend doing this with a cheapie book bag or a messenger bag that sits low on your back

...only works in conjunction with an ergonomic saddle so you don't impede flow through the tube when you sit. Although I doubt it's the most effective way to hydrate.

As stated above, the Camelbak Unibottle is the way to go. The additional stiffness provided by the insulated cover is better than the plain bladder and it stays cooler longer.
