I guess this would be good if I was running a course and playing. I don't know that I'd really want to play with it but to each their own..

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.
I live in Kansas and I said triple digits not the poster. I've lived in Arizona and Texas and I'll take those summer days over Kansas each year. The humidity just pulls water out of you. I think last summer was a record for most consecutive days over 100 degrees and I don't see it being any better this year. A bottle of water is just not going to cut it for a full round. Not unless I want to walk back to the car a few times for a refill.

also...who the hell cares what this guy wants to carry or how he will look doing it? This is an equipment forum and it's his second post....compared to most new posters he's a rockstar already and he's catching crap for making a good post that some might find useful. Give the guy some credit.

Get off of his dick everyone...if he wants to play with that on, let him - sorry he doesn't have a Simian or some other $200 bag.

I don't get the fuss about carrying tons of water with you. If you really want to stay hydrated, drink the water BEFORE your round. Carry a bottle to wet your whistle, but jeez you guys make it sound like you're going on a weekend trek across the Serengeti

This is partially true...if you start out dehydrated and you're still losing water through exertion and cooling, then you won't be able to catch up. However, if you're losing water fast and you're going to be out for awhile, it totally makes sense to keep hydrating if you want to feel and play your best - or at least feel a little fresher in the heat. I learned this in mountain bike races. Used to rely on bottles and hated the idea of camelbaks. In races, it's difficult to find a place to grab the bottle, let alone drink enough at race pace, and get it back in the cage...result is that your performance decreases *dramatically* and you finish the race feeling wiped out. When I finally caved and bought a camelbak, it was amazing how my race performance improved via constant hydration - and recovery after the race was fast n easy.

I've used a camelbak a couple times on putter rounds in the summer...it's a fun, light way to cruise the course. There are lots out there with a lower capacity and narrow profile. Camelbak, Fox, Deuter, Dakine, and Nalgene all make models like this. It take a little getting used to, but I didn't find that my reachback or rotation suffered at all from wearing the pack. But do what works for you, bag, bottle, or pack.

You obviously don't play much in hot weather. I easily go through one or two 32oz Gatorades per 18 holes on the hot muggy days.

When I know I'm going to be outside I drink plenty of water in the morning and for lunch, then bringa 32oz bottle of water with me

I just posted some photos of the Camelbak FlashFlo on another thread. Probably too small for most players here though. I had to give it a try though!
