    Well Ventilated Hydration Pack for Old Sweaty SSer

    What do you recommend that won't feel like a wet towel on my back all day?

    My 17 year old M.U.L.E is on it's last legs and I'd like something that has the same large amount of storage and 100oz bladder, but actually vents as well.

    Thanks!

    osprey or vaude are both brands that I've had good experiences with...the vaude has a nice steel spring type frame that holds the body of the pack away off your back so air can flow nicely. good deals here: Hit The Trail | Steep & Cheap

    I have no complaints at all about the ventilation of my Osprey Syncro 10. Looks like Steep and Cheap has nice deals on the Syncro 10 and Syncro 15. The 10 is a bit smaller and the 15 a bit larger than the MULE, I think.

    I ditched my Camelbaks years ago and went back to water bottles and a small triangle bag to hold tools and stuff. It feels so nice to not have anything on my back while riding, especially when the heat and humidity ramp up here in NY! The Camelbak insulated bottles work great when filled with ice water.

    Just one mans opinion...

    I have been using a Deuter EXP Air for about a year. The ventilation is great.

    I wound up getting an Osprey Zealot 10. I carry too much crap with me so I can fix my buddies bikes on the trails so the triangle bag is out. Plus I'm not a fan of the mud that always seems to accumulate on the nozzles of cage mounted bottles. And my greatest fear is running out of water! I did the Battenkill a few years back and went through my bottles with about 20 miles to go. I was so thirsty I was eyeballing the side of the road for lost bottles!

    I have the older version of the same and it's my go-to bag. As a sweaty guy myself, it's a godsend, as it doesn't feel like you're wearing any pack at all (free airflow over your back)
