    Hydration pack friendly jacket, does it exist?

    Just like the title says.

    I know I can't be the only one who gets annoyed during cooler weather because their back is sweating because of all the insulation on their back. Arm warmers come close, but not quite.

    Nope, but check out Deuter packs.

    I've been packing the tools into my jacket, and hydrating heavily just before the ride so I'm not carrying water anymore. The cooler temps are making it easier to go without water. My bar light battery sits in the bottle cage...

    Keeps the ventilation working better without the Camelbak on...

    There are lightish jackets for biking (and running) with windproof material in front and thin fabric in back. Saw one at Marshalls by Asics this week for $32. The Syncro hydro packs by Osprey have a suspension system that keeps the pack off the surface of your back.

    Supposedly the Mavic jackets are designed for to fit over a pack

    I am using the Osprey Manta pack with the suspension system and I also have a Mavic Stratos jacket.
    It has been great, as it has zippered articulation that allow a pack to be worn underneath. With the Osprey and the Mavic, the muddy rides this past season were tolerable.
