While it’s designed for running, CamelBak’s Delaney DC bumbag works really well for riding. This model holds two water bottles (supplied), two gel flasks (supplied) and has a pocket big enough for a phone, keys and a small tool. It also has a bungee cord that will hold a jacket.
You don’t have to do the waist strap up really tight, because the wide band and large padded rear supports the weight well. We found it a nice alternative to a riding pack when it’s warm out – you stay a lot cooler when you don’t have to wear a pack. You can also use the bottle holders for inner tubes, jackets and other handy items.
