    XC Racers - Which hydration pack (light/small) works best?

    I just can't seem to make myself drink from my bottle enough while racing, and am making the switch to a hydration pack. Need some suggestions.

    Does anyone know of a very small, light, non-cumbersome system. I don't want/need much capacity at all as the races aren't that long, <2hrs. Whistles and bells, pockets, etc. not needed. The "tinier" the better.

    Any suggestions welcomed.

    I use a Camelbak Rogue, Its a 70oz with 2 small pockets (good for tubes and mulitool) very small and thin. I ride here in TX and 70oz's work good for my 2 hours rides in the 90 degree heat.
    I got mine from here:

    Rogue or lobo. Rouge works for smaller water capacity and lobo for 100oz. I think there is even a 50oz Hydrobak model from camelbak. Each of these 90% water with little space for tools. I even have my old camelbak classic. That is simple 70 oz bladder in insulated sleeve with shoulder straps. No zippers and no pockets. They made these in late 90's.

    '18 Specialized Epic 29", Vassago Verhauen SS 29", '13 Santa Cruz Solo 27.5", XC, AM, blah blah blah.. I just ride.
