However! I got a new hydro pack for long rides, and it is bad fuckin' ass. It's one of these:

And is HUUUGE. The small Camelbak (50oz) on the left is my short-ride pack, this one is 100oz, for longer rides and hot weather where my old ass sweats a lot.
It has pouches for everything, and tons of places to store and lose things. The mouthpiece is actually magnetic, and attaches to the opposite side shoulder strap so that it doesn't dangle* around when riding. (The orange strap on the Camelbak is actually a Groove Gear fretwrap to keep the hose in place)
File under: More stupidly expensive MTB shit.
How would you compare the overall quality of the Osprey stuff versus the CamelBak stuff? I've never used an Osprey but I have a CamelBak bladder that I use for hiking and paintball (my hiking backpack has a spot for it and my paintball vest has a spot for it as well)
