Re: RC: Re: Water Question.

I buy 32 oz bottles of Poland Spring water and replace the waterbottles in 
my Sportpack.  They fit fine and at a water stop, my crew can take the empty 
bottles and hand me two more to replace.

I'm trying to interest Camelback in doing something about a
water carrier designed explicitly for horses.  It wouldn't
need to be accessible from a hose the way the people packs
are, just a maximum capacity bladder in saddlebag form with
enough tiedowns to keep it in place over a long ride.
(Though it would raise interesting questions about weight
limits in competition.)

I think dual Camelback wither packs would be great for
people, too.  Barring that, it would help if Sportack
made a 1 qt version of their water bottle/water holder.
I find the 1 pints way too small when one is out on one's
own for hours at a time.

I don't think I'll get anywhere, but what the heck.  Squeaky
wheels and all that.  It would help if I had some dim idea of
the size of the population of recreational trail riders.
