Either the drink tube is so short you have to strain to sip or they're dragging in the dirt. The tubes also add quirkiness to taking the pack on and off, which is something I do 3-4 times per hole.

Packs need 2 drink holders. In 100 degree heat I carry 2 of the 40oz Hydroflasks for a 3 hour tournament round.

Holy crap!?! how many times do you pee in 3 hours?!

Not to mention the weight. That's gotta be terrible taking on and off 3-4 times a hole. I carry one 32oz hydroflask and 20 discs and it's heavy enough. Forget a bag.. you really should be scoping out a cart.

In heavy heat I might pee once in 3 hours after drinking 80oz of water, it's all sweat. I have no issue taking the pack on 3-4 times a hole regardless of weight, doesn't seem to affect me. I stay in good shape and that water intake is right on target with my experience playing soccer and football.

It's a really big deal when playing multiple rounds in a day too, that second round will be awful if you get dehydrated.

On a 70 degree day, I'm good with 40 oz in the same amount of time.

Regardless of all that, water bladders are nasty and high maintenance. Either it's a dirty drink tube or a funky/moldy bladder (or one that has the lovely taste of bleach from cleaning the funk-mold out).

In an Arizona summer, that still wouldn't be enough water to last a tournament round.

I prefer to super hydrate before and after rounds. All that extra weight, no matter how it's distributed, is not necessary. IMO

And about the price, this comes up every thread. I agree its pricey, but players are willing to splurge. And if it's comfortable and lasts you years, it's probably worth it.

While I can appreciate the ingenuity of an integrated water bladder, I think it's more hassle, bulk, and maintenance than it's worth on a bag that is constantly being picked up and set down on the ground.

I agree with pickle hater. All backpack bags should have two water bottle holders to at LEAST give you the option. Years of hiking has fueled my hatred of bladders. They are a pia to deal with in every way, cleaning, filling, and the damn drink tubes suck. If I'm hiking for a week ill deal with the hassle but for even all day golf it's just not worth it. Bottles are easy. Just my opinion.

I also agree with davidrboy that a top loader is so much nicer. I carry a c14 and go back to my fade crunch whenever I can because bending over to cram discs in and out gets annoying. I will say the Shift is a nice alternative but again it can only carry one bottle

The bag itself does look sweet though and ill look forward to them maybe making a smaller option.

Did you miss the fact that it'll carry a full bladder type system plus a 1 litre bottle?
