Outdoor Research's Hoist pack is a hydration pack with about 10 litres of storage - ideal for fast & light days with ultralight kit. Zip access to the main compartment leaves it gaping - easy to access your gear.
Outdoor Research says:
Full days on the trail necessitate hydration. That's why we built the Hoist Pack, a ten-liter, low-profile pack that holds a hydration bladder, a warm layer and enough energy bars for dawn-to-dusk high-exertion exploits.

Outdoor Research's Hoist Pack is pretty small at 9.5Litres capacity but its also quite neat. Inside there's a simple hook on which to locate the bladder and the drinking tube passes out through either side of the shoulder straps - your back is protected by a foam pad.
There's enough room inside to stash some ultralight gear and there's also an additional flat pocket on the front accessed by a zip. The main compartment access is also via a zip which snakes across the front of the pack leaving a gaping opening which is easy to fill and get to things.
The straps are lightly padded but the removable hip belt is webbing, designed for stability only, which is all you need with a pack of this size.
