Hydration packs are certainly popular, but don't overlook the cheapskate option: 2-liter soda bottles. Lightweight, can't get much cheaper, recycleable after your hike.
I usually use the tailgate on my truck. Knew somewone who had one of these and liked it a lot; looks a little pricey to me.http://www.campmor.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?productId=7587&storeId=226&catalogId=40000000226&langId=-12 gallons is a lot to carry; most people cache water if possible. I suppose you colud just buy another 3 liter bladder and find some way to stuff it in the pack or hang it somewhere.
Quote from: "RichardM"Hydration packs are certainly popular, but don't overlook the cheapskate option: 2-liter soda bottles. Lightweight, can't get much cheaper, recycleable after your hike.I'm having a flashback from a South Rim dayhike years ago. We came across a solo backpacker who was carrying a gallon jug of water in each hand. I probably would've at least lashed them to my pack. :? No reason one couldn't be put inside a pack.
