Do You Carry Water on Long Walks?

I have an eighties style fanny pack that could carry the water but it's too big for comfort. Anyone have something that works for them?

I have a water bottle carrier meant for walking with pets, but carry it on occasion without my dog present. It has a little pocket for the folding water bowl that works for credit cards, keys, etc. I'm pretty sure they sell them without the dog walking logo with a more conveniently sized pocket though.

I bought a camelback and I love having it. I have a bag that I can use when I hike, so I can stash a few things in it, too. They do have different sizes of bladders, including some smaller one with small backpack style bags.

It depends on how far I'm going and whether I want to carry anything else. If I'm walking (not hiking) and don't need any kind of backpack, I have a metal bottle with a carabiner. I loop a bandana through the carabiner so that it's easier to carry.

Water Bottle

I carry this Tervis Water Bottle. I like that it has a wide mouth so that I can load it up with ice. I also like that I can carry it by putting a finger through the hole on the lid. I should also say that I made a cross body water bottle carrier that this fits in perfectly so that I can have hands free. I bought mine at Bed, Bath and Beyond and used a coupon.

anna, this is my tiny backpack. Very comfortable straps and it comes in fun colors (of course I got boring black).

Ok I love the ideas here and have thought about each one. For the camelback and amiga13: is there a cleaning routine that is easy? For all suggestions: does the water stay cold? I did look at a hydroflask item that kept the water cold but the cost was astronomical!

My camelback has a wide hole that I fill with ice. I use as much ice or little as I feel I need. It stays cold pretty long, but it does depend on the temps outside. I just dump the water every time, and blow the tube out. Once in a while I might run hot water through it, but that is it. I used to bleach my dh once in a while, but now I make him do whatever he does or doesnít do to it..

I carry a lightweight backpack so I put in my wallet, keys, snack ,phone and water bottle. It works for walking, hiking or biking. Love to have hands free! Mine is similar to the one amiga posted.

anna, Iím not sure what youíre asking me. I just got this water bottle (like one recommended hereóI chose a smaller size than the one recommended because of weight when Iím walking). I only carry water when itís hot and havenít used it yet, but itís supposed to stay cold a long time. And lots of cute colors!
