I do have a small fanny pack that I got on clearance from REI last year. It has 2 16oz bottles that flank a very small, triangular shaped pocket. It carries: altoid tin PSK, heat sheet, AMK 0.3 FAK, and usually a LM on the belt. There's just enough room to cram in my digital camera and a power bar if I really over load it.

In other words, just the bare essentials, and tops out at what... 5 lbs max?

Otherwise, it's a daypack, which is usually too big for a little extra gear.

There's a special pack for hurting students?
I always have to improvise with any lab equipment lying around.

The problem with carrying any reasonable sized water bottles in a lumber pack is that they either hang to far off the back or swing around too much - that looks like the ideal solution.

LOL, yeah... that should have read "a hurting student's pack

Are you using the "strapettes"? I am, but haven't really tried them out yet.

I have the Strapettes but currently not using for daily use. Just using the shoulder strap. I will be using the Strappettes this weekend on the pack when I go hiking and the weekend after when I will be spectating at the Ironman race in town.
