Seems like an hydration pack would be the solution. Some folks seem to use them consistently-inline filters and 3 liter capacity suggest that it might be the most time-efficient water management technique. That said, I can't warm up to them. Is it a generational thing? Sort of the way older warriors tend to be fans of .45 acp/30 caliber and the younger crowd prefer 9mm/.223?
Dance like you have never been hurt, work like no one is watching,love like you don't need the money.

I use a hydration pack and a canteen (metal Nalgene).If my water bladder should rupture I have the canteen as a back up.For water sanitation it's a Sawyer Mini and clorine dioxide tabs. If that should fail I can boil in my canteen and cup. I have never had to go to those extremes. It's nice to know I can. A wide mouth metal canteen is easier to scoop snow into in winter. Place it between layers of clothes to melt with body heat. For in my neck of the woods it's solid kit.....
