    Best Hydration Pack for Carrying Trail Tools?

    I'm looking for a new hydration pack. I'd prefer one where I can carry some trail tools so I can use it on trail work days where I must ride in some distance. Any suggestions? Not looking to carry big trail tools, only smaller tools, such as: folding pruning saw, loppers, pruning shears, maybe a small army issue type shovel. Thanks in advance.

    The Dakine builders pack is the best I have found but I'm not sure it's what you want if you're not carrying tools.

    Quite impressive. Love the fact that it can carry a chainsaw. Definitely something I'll consider.

    You may want to check out the Greenworks 40v cordless chainsaw. I purchased one so I could use it for trail work without having to carry in gas/oil. I was impressed at what this thing can cut through and battery life is impressive. I've cut through pine trees 18-24 in in diameter like butter. I wouldn't try to tackle hardwoods in excess of 12 inches, though; but then again manufacturer doesn't recommend for anything over 8 inches in diameter, I think.

    I'm a full time builder and use my Dakine Builder pack since almost 10 years, but my next pack is going to be the Evoc Trail Builder.
