Default Hydration pack that doesn't interfere with throw

Wanted a hydration pack (camelbak-like) I could wear without being hindered while throwing. I usually play solo with a couple discs at a time and don't like to carry a bag, or have to reach for anything but discs. Searched here and elsewhere for a suggestion but didn't really find anything so tried a few and found one that has worked great.

http://nathansports.com/our-products...on/paks/x-ceed

Pros: throws not affected, full range of motion, not floppy during throw/rotation/walking or jogging, comfy, holds 2L of water, towel clipped to bag

Cons: byproduct of allowing for the full range of motion- comes together in center of chest at small pocket making a "he-man" look... not a fan of the bright yellow/ reflective grey. I have no real use for the small chest pocket.

Been throwing with the pack for about a year and couldn't be more satisfied with its performance. Perfect for a minimalist type disk golfer who's not worried about looking like the cool kids at the local course. Hope someone may find this useful.

No need to 'stay thirsty my friend'

This might work.

A bottle of water in your bag's cup holder?

Seriously though, do you just have too much money and look a bit too well adjusted? Why make drinking water into some sort of chore? "Oh man, I'm really thirsty, but it is waaaay to hard to reach all the way to my bag for my bottle."

I understand where he's coming from. In the summer months it's triple digits and very humid so a bottle of water will last me all of about 3 holes here. I'd rather carry a camelbak for 2L of water and my nutsac for discs than the giant Innova Discarrier and two 1L Nalgene bottles. I don't know if I could throw with it on my back and I don't want to spend eighty bucks. But I get where you are coming from. I played with a guy today who has one for biking and only owns six discs. It wouldn't make sense for him to buy a disc golf bag just to fit in to the stereotypical mold disc golfer.

Triple digits in Indiana? [/troll]

Seriously though, I'd actually go about solving this in a different method. Get a Nutsac bag to wear and lug your drink/drinks instead. In the summer when it's really hot in Ohio, I actually go with a Ching JamBag and just lug as much water as I can carry that I fit into the sides of the bag. Your load gets a lot lighter as you drink. It's basically a $12 solution to this puzzle for me. No large bag, I can carry 5 discs and 2 bottles.
