    External iPhone holder to play music (that attaches on hydrationpack strap)

    That's a mouthful..but do you guys know of a good brand that will securely attach my iPhone (5S) to the front strap of a hydration pack that has openings so I can hear the music while I ride (I don't want to use earbuds)..I like it too that way so people can hear me coming as I approach..

    I've seen some Maxpedition ones, but not sure how it will attach on the hydration pack front strap.

    Ideally, I'm looking for it to attach left front strap, above the left/right pocket area..hope this makes sense.

    This might fit the bill..I don't want it to be completely covered as I want opening so the music will come through..

    The last thing I want to hear on the trail is other peoples music, just my opinion. Get a bell if you want to alert other trail users as you approach them.

    I truley despise hearing other people's music when I'm out enjoying nature. That said I ordered a Timbuk2 3 way for my phone. Easier to access the camera.

    I don't think that you will be able to hear anything while riding. iPhone speakers are not too loud. Maybe you should consider getting a small external speaker like this one: Amazon.com: Kinivo ZX100 Mini Portable Speaker with Rechargeable Battery and Enhanced Bass Resonator: MP3 Players & Accessories

    Please don't play music on external speakers on the trail. Many people use that time to escape into nature. If you want people to hear you get a small bell.

    People appreciate a single announcement of our approach, not our playlist coming all the way down the ridge. Attention needs to be on the trail, not on a Taylor Swift cover of a Bozz Scaggs hit from that album he did with the guys that became Toto. Music on the trail is a leading cause of Controlled Flight into Terrain and Other Users. Protect yourself.

    Use earbuds, nobody wants to hear what your listening to. Sorry. A "Good morning"or "Good afternoon" is enough to let people your coming up on them or " simple "Rider up" around blind corners. I don't much like hearing those Bear dinner bells either.
