    Ultralight Camelbak

    Not sure where to post this, but I've been wanting a tiny little camelbak type product.

    * 10-16 oz of water
    * Smaller tube than a camelbak would be good
    * Shirt pocket would be good

    This would be nice for a race where I'm going to make a lap that is around 2 hours. I have a 70oz Camelbak now I used for short rides and races, but it really is too big. I use a water bottle for epic long rides, but I don't like reaching for one during a race.

    Anyone seen anything like that?

    Take one of these and put it in your jersey pocket upside down so the hose enters at the bottom

    All the people that post worthwhile things I can't give Rep to until I spread some around. So, thanks again Rocky. I don't know if I'd use one of those but thanks for showing me it exists.

    Re: Ultralight Camelbak

    Why not just use a water bottle? And on a 2 hour ride I go through 70oz out of my 100oz bladder. Lol

    Cause he doesn't want to reach for it.

    and yes, most people drink a bottle every hour.

    Ultralight Camelbak

    Camelback makes smaller packs for running. They have a 50 oz fanny pack style. They used to have a 32 oz model that you may be able to find.

    I assume yours is still to big when you only put 16 oz of water in it? What camelback do you have now?
