Hawg's a pretty big one, good from what I hear.

In fact. there's a lot of good ones out there, and not just Camelback. Folks all have their favorites. I have a Mule and am very happy with it for my own needs.

I would suggest that you take a first hand look at a few- you'll be able to make a decision at lot easier.

Decide what you are willing to spend and get an idea of how much water/stuff that you will want to carry.

If you like getting some air/moving around on the bike, packs that include sternum and waist straps help to keep the pack planted firmly on your back.

I don't know where you are or how cold you're interested in using it, but even with an insulated hose it can be hard to keep the tube free of ice.
IMO screw top bottles are the best way to go if it's below -5C (23F).

I've had good luck with the HAWG, also have a 70 ounce/about the same storage called a Cloud walker, more of a hiking pack but suites MTB just fine.
