    Looking for a hip pack...

    Hip pack, lumbar pack, fanny pack... whatever they are called, I am looking for something specific. I would like something a bit smaller with a bottle holder built in. The catch is that the bottle holder needs to be accessible without turning the pack around or any tomfoolery like that. I would really like a way to carry a few food items and 3rd bottle for endurance racing, so the bottle needs to be able to be used on the go. I see a lot of packs with a spot for a bottle, but the reviews all say that you can't really get the bottle back into the pack without stopping and turning the bag around.

    Does anything like this exist? I absolutely hate throwing my 3rd bottle in my rear jersey pocket because it tugs on the jersey and gets super uncomfortable.

    Dakine hotlaps 2L is what I use and it may work for you. Itís unobtrusive and the right size for when you just want to carry the essentials. With a little practice I have no problem accessing and returning the water bottle on the left hip holder. Hated the bladder hip packs cause the noticeable weight. The 2L is light even with a bottle and if you drink that one first it gets back to being Stealthy in no time. Basically stopped wearing a camelback after purchasing my first one two years ago.
