Old-School Sacks: The Tsataan use oversized burlap bags for transport. They carry everything from household items to freshly killed game. This is a most basic method of carry, but it works.

My Modern Backpack: I brought my Osprey Manta pack to haul my gear around. It conforms to fit my body shape and comes equipped with a rain tarp, helmet tag, tie-down bungee cords and a hydration unit with a magnetic chest capture.

The hydration hose technology is seamlessly incorporated into the bag, while the magnetic capture keeps the hose more accessible with less fuss. It allowed me to drink freely while keeping my hands on the reins of the horse and reindeer.

Staying hydrated on the slopes is critical and having a place to stash a snack, tools and extra layers doesn’t hurt either. The Osprey Manta backpack ($140) comes with a custom-fitted Nalgene water holder. A mesh suspension back does its job to make you never feel like you’re carrying around a sack of water. Adding a magnet to the on-off pivoting bite valve lets it snap to the sternum strap, keeping the tube from flying around while you’re flying around.

I’ve been using the Manta on day hikes and more recently while paddling my kayak.  I am so impressed with the fit and function of this pack.  I have been consciously trying to drink more water, and the Manta has been a great help while active.  The ease of use is the biggest factor.  I can easily fill it before heading out.   I have used it numerous times, and have not noticed any ‘plastic’ or off taste.  The reservoir is made by Nalgene, and is BPA and PVC free. The the AquaGuard anti-microbial formula is designed to prevent bacteria and mold from developing.  This appears to be working because the reservoir has not developed any mold, and the water still tastes fine.  Keeping the water clean and tasting good is the easiest way to keep me drinking it.
