THE WEARABLE WATER BOTTLE by ProQuest

BIKERS, HIKERS, AND WALKERS, CHECK OUT the Camelbak Racebak compression tank ($100; camelbak.com for stores), a sports top that has a built-in 70-ounce water reservoir with a drinking tube. I slipped it on and took a quick peek in the mirror: The hump it created on my back looked a little strange, but it was a small price to pay for not having to carry a water bottle. While walking around my neighborhood, I quickly forgot I was wearing the special tank top, and the weight of the water actually helped pull my shoulders back so I stood taller. When I started to run, though, the water bounced, which I think would have caused chafing after a few miles. My verdict: The Racebak is ideal for hiking and, thanks to an insulated water tube that prevents freezing, for winter sports like skiing and snowboarding too.
