In my experience it's been at least as many guys asking for water, I don't see a reason to call one group out specifically. I don't always like sharing my water and having to get back in line earlier but I definitely prefer a minor inconvenience to having someone else be uncomfortable or get hurt.

I'd guess the problem is more about people just not knowing how useful it can be and not knowing where to get one / how much / etc. Even if it really is about "looking super dope and stylish" I think the solution is the same: educate them. Show them where you or your friend got yours and how much it was and how many cool options are available.

I don't know anything about the quality but these look super cool and certainly seem small enough to still show off your assets if that's what you're worried about. - $38-$45

This is the pack I use. I love it and tell people about it whenever it comes up. It's just a little bit bigger than a regular slim pack when it's all strapped down and has a pressurized side to the bladder that inflates with a small hand bulb so the water can shoot out. It's great to cool down with or to share water because they don't have to touch your mouth piece. Really easy to fill and wash. - $130

If cost is an issue here's a bunch on Amazon prime for under $20:

Next thing on the survival menu: make sure you have enough cash and convert it to Canadian before you leave. I normally suggest you bring about $150 - $200 depending on how early you plan on getting in. The cash machine can run out and I don't know how well it works with American bank accounts. ( $50/day early iirc ) Food also can get expensive.. Be ready for that


There are a few places you can get food along the way, Kelwona is good, Castlegar is great ( No frills sells cheap food.. vegis can be meh, but for dirt cheap thats where I hit up ) Nelson is out of the way but has a "membership free bulk store" called Wholesale club.. It works but might be too large for one person


Canadian tire will sell cheap coolers ( styrofoam etc ) so you can pick that up drop some ice in and go. Personally i hate suggesting styrofoam but you do what you need to.


To pack your bag to save the maximum space, ROLL your clothes then push them into ziplock freezer bags. you can easily fit 2 - 3x the amount into a bag, depending on the size of your backpack and how long you will be there it can make it much easier to fit everything. Also bring a bathing suit in a spare bag. Toss it into the bag before tossing it into your backpack as you leave so it won't stink up everything.


For clothing, shorts and tshirts work great, Lots of people love to dress up with costumes.. Now, it does get a bit chilly at night if you are not at the stages. A pair of pants and a hoodie is a good idea, ALSO KNOW, there is always a chance it could rain. so be ready for that. Normally it doesn't last long but you could get wet.


( I will link my basic hiking setup at the bottom, I've collected this stuff over years but I can make it about 5-7 days with this, obviously you don't need everything but thats what I take hiking )


Make sure to bring a GOOD pair of shoes for walking. When it gets dark, the paths become.. Sketchy. during the day sandals works but I always perfered my walking shoes. Water shoes are also AMAZING. The river is rockey.. Well.. only rocks.. So having something you can walk though it is super nice. You can do it bare foot and I have many times but its not always the most comfortable of things.


  1. Get a good backpack, On the cheaper side, get a Amazon Basics Note, 75lr could put you over the 50lb mark at the airport so be prepared for that -- SIDE NOTE. Ask the person at the flight desk for a bag to put your backpack into and tape it up. Makes flying 9000x better with a backpack because it won't get caught


  2. get a hiking sleeping bag aka, very light weight and compact.


  3. Camping Chair


  4. water pack




  6. Foamy ( foams are lighter than inflatables every lb counts )


  7. hiking pillow ( takes up 1/10th the space )


  8. hiking towels


  9. SUNSCREEN!!! Very important unless you enjoy being a lobster. The sun is VERY STRONG out in the valley the first year I went, I watched a guy go from well tanned construction worker to lobster to a walking talking blister. Not fun


  10. dollar store tarps and rope ( probably $10 combined so don't feel bad trashing them after )


  11. FLASHLIGHT, The roots are killer at night.. I swear, the trees are alive and will try and trip you


  12. eating utensils.. I got a kit from the dollar store for $10 then just eat out of my pots.


  13. TENT: I got a greer top hiking tent.. Its gone from amazon.. a 2man tent is your best bet get it as light as possible.
u/joeytmnd · 9 pointsr/okeechobeemusicfest

Thank you for posting, u/emilyokee This is very unfortunate as I’ve used the same bag at every festival I’ve gone too for 5 years and I really don’t want to buy another one just for Okeechobee. Here’s a link to my bag, can you please tell me if it will be allowed in the grove or not? It’s a 2L hydrationpack. Thank you!

u/zebano · 8 pointsr/running
u/benbarcomb · 6 pointsr/CampingandHiking

I drink way too much water all the time, thus the large amount of water I bring with me on trips. Also, haven't invested in a filtration device yet, but that is next!

So, from left to right:

u/sempersexi · 6 pointsr/Ultralight

I purchased:

u/CTSVERROR · 6 pointsr/running

Running with a pack takes a bit to get uses to but once you do you nearly forget it's there. The key is only load up with enough water for the run. When I first started running with one I would fill it up. This meant I always had extra water and weight I didn't need to carry.

I own this one and love it. It's minimal and easy to use. Just make sure to get the air out once you fill it to keep the water from sloshing around when you run.

u/double_a_ron · 5 pointsr/motorcycles

You really should consider a hydration pack

Something like this

I love mine and wear it whenever it's going to be hot and I will be out for more than an hour.

Also...make sure you stay hydrated in general if you ride.

u/DA_MOSS · 5 pointsr/ElectricForest

Was going to tell you I've been having this one for a few years:

But I think its the exact same one that you posted! So yea, it's been through the ringer and has done me well

u/Malorajan · 4 pointsr/electricdaisycarnival

Hydration pack and these bracelets I've made. Not sure if I'll bring my GoPro since I don't think I used it that much last year. Might grab one of those cooling towels or just a bandana.

u/Tri0ptimum · 4 pointsr/vaporents

The EQ is great, but the bags have no mouthpiece (you have to pinch a tube shut and hold it shut, or use a clip or jame osmething in the tube like a pencil eraser), so get a camelback bite valve for them, it goes on the end of the tube and only releases vapor when bit on pinched. I think people pinch it lightly and bring it up to their lips. This is the one, AFAIK:

Use elbow pack method (google or search the sub) to increase vapor production, and for replacement bags use turkey oven food safe bags. Search the sub reddit for the vape name, for more tips :). It's not as easy to load or clean as the Volcano, but it's not tough; the parts you'll be cleaning are glass, so some brushes and isopropyl alcohol are all you need. Extra glass parts (bowls) are easily available and cheap.

Strictly speaking the volcano classic with easy valve will meet your needs best though; it has a great bag and mouthpiece system and is easy to keep clean. You can find them used for $2-400. Extra cartridges for the volcano have to be bought with the bags and are about $100 (easy or solid valve kits), unless you can find them used.

u/H1Javelin · 4 pointsr/WaltDisneyWorld

I use a camelbak MULE. Seen Here. Would highly recommend. Holds 3L of water (the largest bladder I could find) and has room for my poncho, deoderant, and phone brick.

u/DPDragon · 4 pointsr/UMF

Walmart has some in the camping/outdoors section, as I'm sure any sports authority or sports stores would have them as well. This is mine which has one pocket for the bladder (which I put the rest of my stuff in there in a gallon ziploc bag) and a tiny pocket useful for like keys or gum or unimportant stuff. Camelbaks are allowed and don't have to follow the one pocket rule, but they can't be backpacks like this.

u/Fuegopants · 4 pointsr/electricdaisycarnival
    • I have no idea. I use external batteries and my camelback instead.

      2)This is the one I use. It is amazing. Relatively cheap, well made, lots of storage, and a 2L bladder. 10/10
u/sabatoa · 4 pointsr/running

I few weeks ago I picked up a hydration pack for my long runs for super cheap on Amazon, and after a couple of runs I can say that it's my best non-shoe running purchase and it was under $20 when I bought it. I can't wear it for my goal HM race, but at least there will be aid stations on the course.

u/agiraffes · 4 pointsr/HangoutFest

I ended up getting this one.

u/thedean_801 · 3 pointsr/Harley

I use this hydration pack. The mouth piece fits under my chin guard so it's doable while riding. Doesn't interfere with my seat's back rest either. I just got back from my second trip using it. Worked great.

u/ThirdLap · 3 pointsr/running

I have a Nathan HPL #020 hydration vest. No complaints here, save for the additional weight.

u/yahooitsdrew · 3 pointsr/ElectricForest

can anyone recommend a nice hydration pack with a zippered compartment to hold a hoodie for the cold nights? this will be my first forest and all my friends are telling me i really should get a hydration pack--looking to spend around $50 if possible.

this seems like a solid option?

yes, i've already checked out this guide:

it wasn't very helpful on specific bags

u/RedKryptonite · 3 pointsr/running

Nathan Speeddraw. Honestly, I'm not a huge fan because I feel like it forces my hand into a weird claw to hold it. Aside from that, it's pretty solid.

u/cloudyskies41 · 3 pointsr/aves

Ah I see, you might consider investing in a Camelbak brand water pack. There's a lot of knockoffs out there that skimp out on materials to reduce the price, but you definately get what you pay for.

Couldn't be happier with mine.

EDIT: This is the one I've been using. 3 years and still going strong.

u/Strykedead · 3 pointsr/Drugs

Personally, I would try Acid once or twice just so you can get a feel for it before you jump right into it at a festival.

Also make sure you have TONS of water. I know at one day music festivals people get dehydrated a lot, so 4 days will be even worse. I'd recommend a camelbac (something similar here) so you don't have to worry about lugging around a water bottle. The one I linked also doubles as a backpack so you can also carry around your other goodies.

u/storiesfrom17th · 3 pointsr/Coachella

I just bought the rogue. It was on sale for $70 up here in Canada.

Whatever you do, don't fuck around with heatstroke. Shit will ruin your weekend really fast.

u/Lerigot · 3 pointsr/running

Picked up the Teton Trailrunner 2 as I wanted a cheap Hydration Pack for my marathon training. I've used it once and I like having it much better than the belts I've tried.

Does anybody have any recommendations for running shorts on a student's budget?

u/bigbadbyte · 3 pointsr/firstworldproblems

Off brand camelbak

KUYOU Hydration Pack Water Rucksack Backpack Bladder Bag Cycling Bicycle Bike/Hiking Climbing Pouch + 2L Hydration Bladder,(Black+Water Pouch)

u/morin22 · 3 pointsr/wayhome

Amazon has them for decent prices. I picked up this one and its a great size, you can pack a poncho in there also or other items.

u/LtCthulhu · 3 pointsr/MTB

For me its probably my bladder bag. I got this one on amazon: here. Pretty cheap and allows me to carry way more water for longer rides.

u/ClangClangBoom · 3 pointsr/electricdaisycarnival

I bought this one on Amazon: Miracol Hydration Backpack with 2L Water Bladder
I have used it once right after I got it. Took a hike around a local park, and I had no problems with it. It kept my water cool, and wasn't a burden to wear since it has two supportive straps across the chest. It should fall under the appropriate bag guidelines for EDC too.
> Hydration packs with no more than two main compartments and one smaller compartment—must be empty upon entry

u/1245789012457890 · 3 pointsr/Lollapalooza

I just bought this one but I have not received it yet:

u/Bigger_Than_Prince_ · 3 pointsr/Coachella

I have the Camelbak Mule. It works awesome for me. Has a small front pocket, a large backpack-like pocket chamber, a top pocket, and then an exposed pocket between the front two that I put my sweatshirt or t shirt in (you can tighten it so no one can nab your stuff).

It's a bit pricey (got it on sale), but it holds a lot of stuff and a lot of water (without being too bulky).

u/whydontya · 2 pointsr/drunk

All I'm sayin is Camelback.

u/Pazour · 2 pointsr/MTB

My bike isn't entirely black so I don't know if it counts still....

I can also neither confirm nor deny that I own the following....

Its not how well you bike, but how good you look doing it right?

u/Saxmuffin · 2 pointsr/spartanrace

Works for me, 1 beast 2 supers and 2 sprints and no sign of tears. The bladder it came with was pretty bad, but i had other bladders.

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/vaporents

If you do most of your vaping at home, I suggest the Extreme Q. Not only can you often find it cheaper on eBay by almost $100, but it conserves bud like none other. My buddy has a Pax, and while I do like it I don't like how you need to pack a full oven to get the full effect (he and I are aware of the screen method, but we often get less vapor from this method).

My go-to for the extreme q is to elbow pack the screen (not in the actual "bowl" of the vape) and set the temperature to around 370 while letting it preheat for about 15 minutes. Long slow draws produce TONS of vapor and I can usually get pretty spaced off even a .1! When I'm vaping with friends and everyone contributes bud, we use the bags and it's really a great time. My suggestion for the bags is buying a CamelBak Bite Valve that is very cheap and is a good way to not let vapor escape. My friends and I can pretty much throw the bag of vapor like a football across the room and it doesn't come off (although I don't suggest that ;))

u/FNG_WolfKnight · 2 pointsr/aves

Camelbak Rogue is a decent option to have for a couple of pockets and hydration. they are allowed at Paradiso.

u/mrsjksnowwis · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I would take this to help keep you hydrated. And if you don't have any trail/hiking shoes, I'd invest in those, too

u/tabinsur · 2 pointsr/longboarding

Of course!

Selecting a hydration pack can vary based on what you want to do with it.

The pack I have on in the picture is one that is designed for ultra running and can carry a 3-liter water bladder(I only had a 2 liter one in yesterday) plus 2 water bottles for quick access and its still a full backpack in the back for food med kit etc. Honestly, it's more space than I use but I had it leftover from my days of ultra running so I figured I'd use it.

First, decide how much water you need to carry and how much other stuff. This will help you decide on the bag. The nice thing about Longboarding is you don't have to worry about the constant bounce your body makes from running when it comes to bag fit.

If you want super nice and expensive running bags that fit great google the brands Ultraspire, Ultimate direction, and Nathan Sports. I've used and owned various running packs from these companies and they were all great.

That being said most people don't want to spend $60-150 on a hydration vest or pack. I totally get that. The good news is the knock off market has caught up in the last 7 years so you can get good fitting bags that are similar to those brands but way cheaper.

If I had to buy a new bag right now this is one I would consider:

Bag 2:
Here are some other ones that look good as well:

Bag 3:

I personally would avoid bags like this one:

The reason why is that it has no waist strap so It will flop around a lot more. That and the straps are very skinny and can dig into the skin over a long period.

Use the search term Hydration Vest to find nice fitting ones like the ones I've recommended. And the things I look for with fit are

  1. wide shoulder straps
  2. Pockets in the front shoulder and waist straps
  3. A chest strap and a waist strap or 2 chest straps on certain vest models.

    I hope this helps. If you have questions or need any more help feel free to reach out to me!
    I am happy to share my hands-on experience with hydration packs.
u/Tidus77 · 2 pointsr/askgaybros

I usually use a mini-water backpack, like this but only for longer runs. Alternatively, you could get a hydration vest, which I know a lot of runners prefer.

u/korgothwashere · 2 pointsr/EDC

Check out a good Kelty Bag or an Osprey bag.

Are you looking for a backpack style or a messenger style, or a sling backpack? Are you carrying a lot of stuff...or a lot of stuff? Do you have a color preference?

The Kelty Redtail is a good options that I've seen for as low as $60 I think on Amazon. Currently retailing for a bit higher, but certainly under $100.

For a smaller lightweight bag, I was looking at a Teton Sports Oasis once upon a time. My SO carrys around a cheapy Outdoor Sports bag of similar size for her EDC and it seems to fit everything she needs pretty well.

u/asyrin25 · 2 pointsr/EliteDangerous

Maybe I can attach a Camel Backpack to my chair and hydrate Stillsuit style.

u/Hoosiergirl29 · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

I use this Nathan bottle. I like it, it doesn't get very heavy even when full. Downside is it can dribble a bit but meh, I'm already sweaty so who cares.

u/vaposlocos · 2 pointsr/vaporents

If you feel like it or see one, you can also use a bite valve, like they use for waterpacks, usually can find them in an outdoors/camping shop.


I got this at a local shop, works quite nicely!

u/IHateTomatoes · 2 pointsr/Coachella

For Camelbak I'd recommend like 1.5L-2L for your bf and/or 1L-1.5L for you. [This]( 2016 Rogue Hydration Pack, Black, 70-Ounce is what I have.

u/Stifler_33 · 2 pointsr/lifeisbeautifulLV

KUYOU Hydration Pack Water Rucksack Backpack Bladder Bag Cycling Bicycle Bike/Hiking Climbing Pouch + 2L Hydration Bladder,(Black+Water Pouch)

Would this hydration backpack be acceptable?

u/madsbrain · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Good hiking boots are definitely worth the investment if you're going to be going in more wooded areas. Also, Camelbak-style water backpacks are great and keep your water cool when you get into the warmer months, but just be wary of the prices. I have one that I got from Eastern Mountain Sports out of their bargain area because someone returned it before using it, so definitely keep your eye out on camping supply stores.

u/warox · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

They seem cool, and I would consider one at $75 to $80, $100 is unlikely, and $150 is a no, sorry. This product sells for $65, and is ubiquitous at festivals, and kind of gives you an idea of price point people would support.

Suggestions, make a few prototypes, start an etsy store, get yourself a paypal account, and take some decent modelling photos. As a matter of personal preference, I would prefer earth tone colors rather than paisley or shiny, but to each his own.

u/sunburnt · 2 pointsr/running

I like Nathan HPL 020 hydration vest. I've worn it on 6-hour hike/running tours without any issues: no chafing, no discomfort of any sort. My only wish is that it had more webbing on the outside to allow for stuffing more gear into it, but, as it is, it keeps me from packing too much stuff on day hikes.

u/code_monkey_001 · 2 pointsr/CaminoDeSantiago

It was a tight fit (augmented by waist bag and leg bag), but well worth it as I was flying from the US and it was small enough to qualify as an airline carry-on even with my sleeping bag attached. I can't imagine what people carry in those giant packs, or what their backs must have felt like at the end of each day.

u/cussingsh4d0w · 2 pointsr/Coachella

I use this one:

Got it for my first Coachella in 2014 and have used it at every festival since. Holds 2L so you don't have to constantly refill. Also has a bunch of pockets for whatever you need to get in, including a secret compartment for stuff you need to sneak in (haven't been found out yet).

u/jiffwaterhaus · 2 pointsr/Fitness

This and this would work well too. The first one's great for long distances where you need like 10 canteens. The second is better if you don't want to look silly.

u/ZeppelinDT · 2 pointsr/geocaching

Oh. Lol, sorry, totally misread the title. I use a Camelbak M.U.L.E. It's got a few compartments with lots of room, holds up pretty well to the elements, and can fit a 3 liter hydration pack, which I sometimes fill and sometimes don't, depending on how long the hike will be and what the weather is like. I've had it for a few years and don't remember the exact model, but it's similar to this one:

u/sokrmom · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

I have this hydration pack. I have used the same one twice at hangout fest. My son’s has made it through two hangout festivals and slossfest. For the price we have gotten out money’s worth

Amazon Hydration Backpack


This is the backpack like half of my group last year had and we were all fine! We put all of our things in a gallon ziploc inside the backpack so when they search we just whip that out and the rest of the bag is empty in case they give us any problems! Nobody got turned away last year.

u/n0ia · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

If you're doing it right and looking after yourself, you should be going through SEVERAL bladders of water per day.

You will run out of a bottle of water in 30 minutes on the coolest of days. If you miscalculate how soon you need water, you may find yourself waiting in line to fill up that tiny little bottle for 10 - 15 minutes. I have personally seen people pass out from heat exhaustion while waiting in line for water.

You don't have to by a camel bak brand. There are plenty of other companies producing them now, such as Coleman.

They can be had for ~$20 (such as this one:

Do not underestimate the heat.

And no, it doesn't get annoying. It also allows your to bring other essential items into the main venue area (toilet paper, wipes, sunscreen, etc.)

u/xNyxx · 2 pointsr/running

I bought this one and it's great. Does not move at all. Cheap. You'll need a different one if you're top heavy. I'm broad in my back, average chest and I'm at the limits of the straps running across my chest.

u/joewheeler06 · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

I've upgraded my water backpack this year. The one I had last year was decent but small. This year I'm buying a Teton pack. In this pack I will have probably just the basics plus a few things I couldn't fit this past year. I will have my Canon A2500 with an extra battery in a case. Ziplock bag with my phone and my wallet inside. My keys to the truck usually get attached directly to the front of the strap so I know where they are at all times. My worst fear is losing my keys. I usually bring a spare and make another responsible person carry it as well. I will also be bringing along a cloth tapestry to use as a blanket to sit on at the shows. I didn't have room for that last year. I usually have a bandana in my pack as well, along with some granola bars. I may also be bringing an external battery pack to recharge my phone if need be.

u/creepymanchildren · 2 pointsr/running

Thanks! No desire to do a full. That's just too much of a time commitment. But I am doing another half this weekend. :) This is my hydration backpack:

u/pickleless · 2 pointsr/aves

I was in this position last month before Escape and ended up getting help from other redditors! In my thread, it was brought up that I should get a generic pack, but an actual bladder. In the end, I saved probably 20-30 bucks since Camelbaks are hella expensive.

I actually bought this pack:

and placed a 100 oz camelbak bladder in it. It wasn't a perfect fit, so some of the bladder was hanging over the top, but it was pretty secure that it wasn't even a big deal. Was able to jump and groove to trance all night because of the waiststrap! I would suggest the 100 oz because you would already be carrying 70 oz to begin with. Those 30 oz (around 2ish pounds) would probably be gone within the hour! Less fill ups right? Dunno if it was just me, but I didn't even really feel the water weight on my back. Ended up forgetting about it until I needed water. Only had to refill the bladder once a night, and that's so we have water for the walk and ride back home. All in all, best investment for festivals!

Funny story: The person who filled my bag was like "damn this bitch drinks!" lol.

I'm a person with average build, definitely not buff or cut. Fairly bulky/chubs. Lemme know if you need more help!

u/SynyzaL · 2 pointsr/MusicMidtown

I'm curious about this too. I have a CamelBak that I brought to Shaky Knees last year and had no issue bringing it in but I see Music Midtown says no multi-pocket bags and technically this one has at least 2 zippered compartments... I'm just going to take it and hope for the best. Having that constant source of water is a life saver at these things.

u/vh1classicvapor · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

This one. Quality seems questionable but it’s cheap enough to roll the dice on

u/xfilesarereal · 2 pointsr/HangoutFest
u/Pybr0 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I like skateboarding distances, cycling, and the occasional hike, this water pack would be pretty useful for all of those.

u/CARDINAL- · 2 pointsr/Coachella

Agreed! I think the best camelbak for music festivals is the Rogue. Like they said it's small and holds enough water. The refilling is easy because you just flip the top and the bladder opening is already exposed so you don't have to actually take out the bladder.

I have another camelbak and it is a pain to take the bladder out of the bag in those packed lines at the refill stations.

u/fappinatwork · 1 pointr/drunk

Just get a CamelbaK,

u/LandlockedPirate · 1 pointr/sailing

>15kt wind drinking

Not saying I recommend it. I've done it, but.... yeah.

u/greyblueeyedgrl · 1 pointr/disney

It's basically a backpack that holds water so you don't have to carry around water bottles. I was looking at them for when I go running but I'm sure it will definitely come in handy when visiting the parks also.

u/THE1Tariant · 1 pointr/electricdaisycarnival

Next year will be my first one as well in LV I did EDC UK a couple years back and loved it.

But to answer some of your questions.

  1. The tickets and boxes should be held at will call for you and you can pick them up from there, the pick up at will call starts on the Thursday around midday I believe. From what I have been told is best to go later on the Thursday evening as it should be less busy, also the will call will be held at a hotel on the strip so you could probably visit that hotel have some drinks etc two birds and all that. Also if you order more than one ticket on the same order you only get one box so if you and another want one each do separate orders I am gonna.

  2. I have already booked my flights and hotel for me and my missus trough virgin holidays we fly out on the 11th and leave on the 21st so we are there 11 nights at the flamingo which is right in the centre of the strip as for the dates of festival and Being safe on them I'm 99% the dates will be 16th-18th next year, if not worse case I can pay 25 pound PP to change dates etc. I would recommend as you are going to pay for flights Etc like me to not spend so much on the hotel I looked at places like the MGM grand, Cosmo and aria Originally and thought this is too much for a room I'm not gonna really be in. So go somewhere mid range, also the flamingo is better suited for adults on EDC week. So you could book now or closer to the day for prices to get cheaper as you may find last Minute type stuff but I got mine for like 3200 pounds for both of us.

  3. In terms of transport anything better than the link below then take that but from what I hVe seen its the best one other than the EDC official ones. They had a number of pickup locations I am booking with Them for next year as one of the pick ups is like a 5 minute walk from my hotel prices will be cheape than EDC one as well.

  4. Get yourself a camelbak like the one in the link as there are free water refill spots dotted around the grounds and you will need this 😅😅 also this one has a few pockets which is the maximum they allow and gives you space to separate and store stuff.

    A few other things I would suggest is gum has to be a fresh sealed pack, a bandana or face vale is it is so dusty there from what I have seen and doubles up as a sweat rag, maybe a fan I used my fan I got from a festival in Spain like all night as it was so dam hot comes it handy.

    Other than that any extras you like maybe get some kandi that stuff is mega at EDC people love to swap that stuff and you meet people trough it

    I hope this helps.

I have the same back pack, at first I filled it and now it is too big. It is heavy, but I like it because it is easy to get everything in there, even winter stuff.
I use the teton 1500 with a water bladder as a day pack. I've used it in mild weather for a weekend with a hammock and tarp. But listen. If you aren't going to occasionally use it like that for an overnighter, you don't need a 1500, get something like the 1100, I think that is what JohnShaft is pretty much describing -
I know you are in cub scouts but you asked about backpacking so I think you are looking ahead, but for now I'd probably go with that smaller day pack. You really don't need much. Instead of thinking about "what you can take" think about "what you don't need to take."

For first aid, don't take stuff like the ice packs. Just the stuff John Shaft says. Don't take something like a splint. Just keep the basics. One of those small, small size after bites helps with the kids sometimes. Mine has one or two bubble packs of things like tylonal and pepto.

I want to ditto the paracord below. Use it to hang tarps, flys etc.

I usually have a sawyer water filter even in daypack. I take two nalgene bottles and maybe an extra bottle depending on weather. There are always granola bars and stuff like that in a pocket. Honestly, your day pack shouldn't weigh hardly anything. There's small versions of everything in the ten essentials.

I have one of the little short mora eldris knives and I absolutely love that thing. Look, if I was dying to get one thing, that would be it.

You said camping or hiking, so for backpacking this is what I take, depending on weather.

  • my hammock and straps, warm weather a "jungle blanket," cold weather I have an under quilt and I use a lightweight 20 degree mummy bag for overquilt and a tarp.
    -OR- a tent. But I usually don't take a tent, only if I know there is some reason I can't hang a hammock
    Some paracord.
    That mora knife.
    Two flashlights. Little cree flashlights are cheap enough that it isn't a big deal if you lose one. Refresh those batteries.
    A cheap little backpack stove and a small gas can.
    I take two titanium cups that nest together and a folding titanium spork. That's all the cookware I take. With that, I can cook a mountain house pack if I'm feeling rich, or grits and spam or tuna and noodles or chicken and tortillas if I'm not.
    some sort of gorp/trail mix/snack
    A sawyer filter.
    My first aid kit. I got a soft side kit that was a give away and I've just restocked it over time. Only take stuff you will really use.
    extra socks, OK, I said the mora knife is the one thing I would buy first but actually it is good wool socks. Bring extra socks.
    If it is cold, I bring a warm long underwear sort of shirt I have
    my toothbrush and a little thing of toothpaste
    some tp wrapped around a pencil
    Food I'm eating and water, and maybe one of those little squirt things of water flavor or a couple of tea bags if I'm feeling luxurious.
    I have some of those soap flakes.
    I have a small bic lighter and a few storm proof matches live in the first aid kit.
    I have a little duct tape wrapped around my straps. I have a caribiner to hang my pack with the paracord, and two tent stakes for the tarp.
    MEDICAL FORMS in a gallon size zip lock with a map in there

    There's a couple other things that are nice to have, but not everybody needs to have their own, so if one person in the group brings a small hatchet, a folding saw, and a cat hole spade then everybody can share.

    Hiking I take my cell phone. I use an app called back country pro. I am not saying to rely on that instead of a map and compass, but I like to watch the little dot move and make a line. I don't take my cell phone back packing though. Just lock it in the car and you won't have to worry about battery life.

    Nothing has to be a big name or expensive.

    tl/dr look at this

Happy Early Birthday!

Thanks for the contest! This is the only thing I had on my wishlist related to drinking. It's a hydration backpack for hikes!

Really, on a Monday?

Have a nice dinner!

Here's one

TETON Sports Trailrunner 2.0 Hydration Backpack w/ Bladder (16.5"x 10.5"x .7", Black) by Teton Sports

u/parasiteartist · 1 pointr/triathlon

I usually stand out as I use mine whenever I run and sometimes when I bike. A lot of people don't like them since it traps heat on your back.

I ran a marathon with it strapped on me as I don't like belts. I now have the Nathan HPL 020 for long runs. Haven't used it for long bikes yet but I'm also not opposed to the idea. I would only be worried about it running out of water and not being easy to refill.

u/mesohungry · 1 pointr/running

I've been running for years and just started running with the Nathan HPL 020. I just ran 16 miles with it. It's incredibly lightweight and stable. There's enough room in it to carry a rain jacket, cell phone, keys and ID. You might be able to get your shoes in there. Definitely your shin guards.

u/poipyroo · 1 pointr/flyfishing

I have a small llbean chest pack and a day pack backpack with a hydration bladder. It works rather well. The chest pack doesn't hold quite enough for me so the backpack is good for backup supplies.

Chest pack:
TETON Sports Oasis 1100 Hydration Backpack, Green

u/Arve · 1 pointr/running

Running with a backpack is always a compromise of some sort. For instance: Do you need to carry water in addition to your clothing? If so, the backpack is going to be bigger, and is inevitably going to bounce around, regardless of any chest straps.

If you don't need to carry water, how many items of clothing will you need to bring, and what is the smallest backpack that will accomodate it?

Myself, I've solved it the following way: I leave my laptop and clothes in the office, and come in the next day in a fresh set of clothes, and bring the change and shoes from the day before back home the next day in a regular backpack, which I left in the office the day before. My run home from work is 15.5 km, and during summer, I need to have extra hydration, which I carry in a hydration pack/race vest.

Hydration packs are a bit of pot luck, though. I've tried on many of them before buying, and I've never liked the Camelbak's I've tried - they have either felt too small, too large, too constricting or too bouncy for me, and I've had similar experience with many other brands. What I eventually settled on was a Nathan HPL #020 (Amazon affiliate link, in case you don't want to click any of those). It's a trail/ultra vest that has a removable 2 litre (67 oz) hydration bladder. It also has three additional pockets - 2 on the front, 1 on the back that are big enough to carry all the small items I need to bring (keys, wallet, phone), and one of Nathan's own small water bottles. The nice thing about that pack is that as long as I have fastened the chest strap, and adjusted it properly, it doesn't bounce at all (in any direction). If you take out the bladder, it may accomodate a lighter pair of pants and a t-shirt, and a light jacket fits externally in a shock cord.

u/djmistral · 1 pointr/electricdaisycarnival

I use this one

Everyone just has to remember that this isn't a TSA-type search, they arent going to be out there measuring bags. As long as it doesn't appear to be over their requirements, it should be fine. That said, just remember EDC hasn't published a change in their security requirements yet, so take everything going around with a grain of salt for now.

u/oneofyourFrenchgrrls · 1 pointr/bali

anti-itch (cortisone) cream & antibiotics!

antibiotics: i was just in ubud on a yoga retreat, and 10 out of 25 in the group got sick.

anti-itch cream: i did bring mosquito repellant, and douse myself in it daily, but there is no way you won't get bit.

the best thing i brought was this bad boy right here.

safe travels!

Camelbak brand is the best but if you want to save your money and still have great quality .... here you go fam TETON Sports Trailrunner 2 Liter Hydration Backpack Perfect for Biking, Running, Hiking, Climbing, and Hunting; Black

u/Unbeknown · 1 pointr/spartanrace

Bought this one for a race last year and it was great. Got it snagged on the barbwire crawl, but it didn't rip apart or fray. Cleaned up great and kept me hydrated. The mouthpiece was kinda a pain, but there are replacements for those.

u/amg78 · 1 pointr/runninglifestyle

We usually use some type of waist belt, arm band, of if you are a girl, tucked in the sports bra (no link needed). For bigger items, like if you are carrying a wallet or water/ snacks as well, larger belts work, there are running back packs.

u/Going_Hamm · 1 pointr/Coachella

I've been using the classic 2016 hydration pack for 4 years now.
Not the biggest but light enough where you can jump and dance with a full pack of water. I suggest buying extra mouth pieces as well, just in case. (
Last year my mouth piece randomly fell off when I was dancing.

u/laextranjera · 1 pointr/argentina

Yo tengo una Teton de 18 L para todos los días. Lo más genial es que tiene una bolsa de hidratación de 2L que en verano mantiene el agua bastante fresca sin ocupar más espacio. Tiene cubre mochila por si llueve y es increíblemente cómoda. Medio forzado cabe una notebook de 13,5.

Y para nadar o si tengo que llevar algo muy grande tengo una Arena Spiky que tiene un compartimento separado para la ropa húmeda.

Pero algo menos sport, están éstas.

  1. if it's above 10C and I'm going long; aonijie racing vest - the two bottle option is important because the front pouches are rather minimal. The soft bottles are the perfect fit... infact a bit too perfect - to drink, I leave them in the pocket and lean forward and bite down and squeeze with a hand. When I'm refilling them during a race or run, I take the top off and leave the bottle in the pocket. I wouldn't trust other bottles to fit, and hard bottles would be too hard to get in or out. I use water in the front pouches and a 2L bladder in the back that I'll do a slight variation of fellrnr's Go Juice. Yes, my bladder is horribly stained.

    Sometimes I'll go with just a 500ml hand bottle, but there aren't a lot of public fountains in my area, so that kind of limits me to 10-15k loops.

  2. I tried the Osprey Talon belt - perhaps my butt is too small, but even cranking it super tight against my hips it would either fall down over my butt, or raise up off of my hips. And I'm not running with belt against my stomach. I think it would be ok for hiking, but running it failed hard.

  3. I have a vest and a pack (pack is cheap teton pack ), and I use them both for different things. However my pack has nothing that can be reached while wearing it, so I only use it if I'm carrying stuff (run-commuting to work). The vest is best for running, I can carry a lot that's still reachable while wearing it, and there's still more space at the back for less likely to be used/needed items but might be nice to have.

u/westfieldstory · 1 pointr/running

1) What is YOUR favorite gear to carry nutrition? Link us to it!

For runs out to 2 hours when the weather is kind I'll usually use one or two Nathan SpeedDraw Plus Flask. I prefer to carry two handhelds and alternate which side I drink from to keep things balanced. It also gives the option to carry water and something else, say Overstims Hydrixir.

2) Not into running bottle belts like me? What have you tried in the past and have stopped using?

I used to run with a NorthFace bottle belt but could never stop it bouncing. These days I use a Naked Running Band which is quite nice as it doesn't bounce and can fit quite a lot of gear. It also takes a bib which is handy for races that don't allow pins. It does have pole loops but even with the lightest poles you're going to have some bounce. I use the belt when I need my hands on technical terrain (it fits a couple of soft flasks), or need extra carrying capacity in addition to the handhelds.

I have a few pairs of shorts that incorporate storage into the band of the shorts. These Altras are my favourite.

3) I’m curious: If you’ve used a vest and a pack, which do you prefer?

I've had a few vests over the years but currently run with the Ultimate Direction SJ Ultra 3.0 or the Nathan VaporKrar 12L. The SJ Ultra is light and breathable with a heap of storage up front but is a bit small for races with lots of mandatory gear. The VaporKrar doesn't fit as much gear up front and runs a little hotter, but the back of the vest is brilliant and you could easily load it up with way more gear than you'll ever need. They're both pretty good options for lightweight vests, but if you need a bladder get the VaporKrar as it's considerably more comfortable with a bladder.

u/dubies · 1 pointr/paradisofestival

I read that camelbaks are allowed but I just want to make sure this specific model is ok. It's the Camelbak M.U.L.E hydration pack 100 oz.

CamelBak 1115001000 M.U.L.E. Crux Reservoir Hydration Pack, Black, 3 L/100 oz

Any chance you can verify? Thanks for all you do!

u/lunarsoul17 · 1 pointr/FireflyFestival

This is the one I got. It didn’t show the inner pockets in the listing photos, though. Even this one doesn’t show the little zipper pocket, but it does show the elastic one. I hope they don’t give me a hard time over it, but I’m bringing a clear cinch sack as backup, just in case. 🤞

u/fearednerd · 1 pointr/electricdaisycarnival
Small enough not to be a bother to carry all day, large enough to still store your little items like chapstick and gum or whatever. Remember to bring chapstick.

u/JohnLeivas · 1 pointr/Coachella
u/RandomAccessMemoriez · 1 pointr/Coachella

This is the one time im going with. It's extremely lightweight. Gonna pair it with a fanny pack because I'm uncomfortable with my stuff zipped up behind me, with all the pickpockets at festivals

u/sunkim622 · 1 pointr/Coachella

This is my first Coachella but from what everyone has told me: YES. I got this: It's only barely bigger than a regular camelbak but has many more compartments. I also have bag locks to keep things safe. I wonder if it'll be too bulky (thinking about putting light jackets in case it gets too cold)

u/nimr0d · 1 pointr/snowboarding

If you're just looking for water + small storage(like 1 pocket). Look into a camelbak.

Something like this:

It's even small enough to wear under your jacket. Stays close to your body so you don't feel like anything is really sticking out and throwing you off balance.

u/darkeningsoul · 1 pointr/electricdaisycarnival

Ok guys, I've been looking around online and think I've narrowed it down to either the CamelBak Rogue or the CamelBak Dart. Both for their small profile, but still having small storage pockets and a chest strap. Any opinions on either of these?


u/VBeauregarde · 1 pointr/santashelpers

I'm not sure what budget you're working with, but with the fitness/snowboarding interest, maybe a camelbak would be a good gift! I think it'd be fun to throw in a gift or two for their dog, too. You could get a hide-a-squirrel or a tricky treat ball.

u/GotMunchies · 1 pointr/running

Nathan HPL 020 Hydration Pack

Comfortable, convenient pockets for Gu/Snacks and my phone, great for hot days, hiking, biking, and of course running. The only downside is a finnicky bladder, most users end up replacing it with a camelbak bladder.

As other have said, your shoes will work fine. I'd recommend a day pack for water and snacks. This is what I have, its been perfect. And cheap!

u/leashapeesha · 1 pointr/ElectricForest
u/Sachz · 1 pointr/backpacks

My daily pack is Teton Oasis 1100. I removed the hydration bladder and it fits my 13" Emoji Fartbook Pro perfectly. It also has two spots externally for bottles, two pouches (one large, one small) with the larger one being able to fold down all the way to hold jackets and various larger items - difficult to explain in text.

They're around $40 on Amazon and have yet to find anything to come close for minimalist needs.

u/RaverKev · 1 pointr/electricdaisycarnival

I found one on Amazon, but I see it has a lot of pockets. So I'm kind of put off and curious if it'll be allowed in with all those pockets.


Edit: It's this one...

u/klp08 · 1 pointr/arizer

u/Cararacs · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This racing vest. It can be a pain to carry a water bottle and my phone on runs that take hours.

u/livintheshleem · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

"2 pockets" is really misleading when they're counting the one that the bladder goes in. I have this which I guess won't be allowed because there are technically 3 pockets, if we're counting the bladder. I think (hope) that they'll be flexible with that if you're really transparent about what you're carrying - have all the zippers open, bladder empty, and make it super easy to search.

I have an even smaller one with just the bladder and the tiny front zipper, so I guess I'll bring that as backup.

u/MrChipKelly · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

I have nothing but good things to say about the [CamelBak Rogue pack] ( I had for two years. It's 2.5L but definitely still compact -- I never once had an issue with bumping into people while moving through a crowd or dancing. If I was the only one drinking from it I usually only refilled it once, occasionally twice, per full day at a festival, and I drink way more water than most people I know (I'm that guy that drinks a gallon a day at home).

Last year I gave my Rogue to a friend and replaced it with the 3L Lobo I currently use, but only because a) I wanted more storage space for my Polaroid and lawn blanket and b) I finally came to terms with the fact that if I go to fest with my friends, they'll all inevitably forget to fill up their packs and end up sharing mine no matter how many times I remind them. I think the Rogue would be perfect for you.

u/NooBnation101 · 1 pointr/electriczoo

Seconded, once you start to factor in all the water you buy they are very economical also you have a nice place to hold things if needed. I just bought this one not too long ago

u/Goodsweet · 1 pointr/vaporents

Get a bite valve from a camelbak so you don't have to hold your finger over the mouthpiece.

u/day1patch · 1 pointr/bikecommuting

I have this Camelbak Mule NV, but it is also a bit on the small side. However I can get rain jacket / pants, lunch, wallet and stuff, my sunglasses in a big case, tools and a variety of odd things inside. I believe there are bigger versions of the Mule, but I think they would become a bit uncomfortable for cycling.

u/CityOfChamps09 · 1 pointr/electricdaisycarnival

They honestly do not care as long as it isn't a huge hiking camelbak, and even then, as long as everything is out of it, the bladder is empty, and all the zippers are opened, they are usually cool about it. is the one I bought for last year. I don't recommend a bladder any less than 2L or you'll be going back to the water stand every hour or so especially if you are sharing, and that sucks, cause the line is hotter than hell to wait in.

Let me know if you have any more questions!

u/leadtpt74 · 1 pointr/spartanrace

I'm currently using this one.

I like having the slightly larger 2L bladder and the space for food. As for keeping the liquids cool, this one does have some insulation in the bladder compartment but if I'm worried about that I just put ice cubes into the bladder.

u/meow203 · 1 pointr/running

Thanks for the tip! My backpack is more of a hiking backpack, it's this one. Though I think the width is a bit large for my shoulders, which might be causing it to be less tight than I would like.

u/Cojoru16 · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

My favorite festival must have is my hydration pack! Specifically the CamelBak M.U.L.E. I always stay hydrated and it gives me enough room to store my stuff without being too bulky. :)

I'll be attending weekend 2.

u/oppan_ganja_style · 1 pointr/electricdaisycarnival

I got a Teton Sports Oasis 1100 for very cheap from Amazon for Escape last year and it's served me well at every show I've gone to since then. It has hella extra pockets, which I love because security generally doesn't care, and it's nice to have storage space for phones, waterbottles, etc. Plus, it has an excellent hidden pocket which security never even notices.

u/carltondanks · 1 pointr/Coachella

I bought this. It looks great and it can hold other stuff too (sweater, battery pack, etc.)

u/incster · 0 pointsr/running

I use a small CamelBak for runs over 18 miles if there is no convenient way to get water along the route. Otherwise I use a SpiBelt.
