I recently had surgery for a broken collar bone and finally I got the green light to start biking again. I used a Camelbak Mule for hydration and emergency gear in the past, but due to me being skinny, I can't wear back packs until the hardware comes out in a year. The back pack straps really bother me, as they sit right on the collar bone (even the car seatbelt puts too much pressure).
I installed a water bottle cage and tried that route, but I ran out of water halfway through my ride, so this route did not work for me. I addition, I had to leave most of my emergency gear (this was a biggie), since I can't wear a back pack.
I used to carry a back pack at work, so I switched from a back pack to a sling bag and it worked great, so I figured a sling bag with a hydration bladder was an option if they even made one. As luck would have it, I found a sling hydration pack, but I don't know if it will be snug enought to stay in the back while mountain biking. Has anyone else tried a sling bag while mountain biking? Any feedback? I would like to hear some opinions before I buy it in case it doesn't work.
Are there any other options for hydration other than a back pack or water bottles in a frame cage?
I will appreciate your help.
