Took my Swift out for its first real test this week but ran into a little issue when it came to water.I was using a Smart Water 1 L bottle in the side short mesh pocket (worked GREAT) but had some difficulty with my 2 L platypus hoser setup. I placed the bladder inside the main pack body on top of my other gear, but every time I stopped I found that the weight of the bladder had made it slip down between the pack liner bag and the pack body. Also, I just couldn't really find a good way to route the hose, though I may just need to trim it down a bit. It ended up working okay (water was easier to find than I expected) but the bladder just ended up being a nuisance. Also, I was lucky I didn't run into much snow, or the little openings of the bottles would have made things tricky. I was considering using a pair of 1L Nalgene cantenes instead, but they have the same problem as every other collapsible bottle I've seen: sharp corners on the bottom that look like they'd tear through the mesh pockets pretty easily.
So for those of you with the Swift, or similar experiences, how do you store your water? Right now I'm thinking I'll end up using a couple empty 1 Liter drink bottles with no bladders or hoses, but would like to know if anyone's come up with a better way.
