Hmmm, Patrick pointed out to me last night that we have got
the 90 oz Camelbaks, so my "half-way" is still 45 oz.

Yes, I have been known to do this too.

Yup. Same here. The Mule, I believe it is called. And the zipper
pocket has enough room for wallet, truck keys and cell phone.
Never leave home without them. 

(although I try not to think about what will happen if I fall 
off with those items strapped to my back. I like to hope that 
the 45 oz of water will cushion my fall. 

But I'd rather do that than watch pony + water + wallet + truck 
keys + cell phone gallop down the trail without me).
