Hydration Vest

Does anyone use a hydration vest on long trips in the summer? Especially in those areas that get over 100F on average. I'm looking for a runners vest since its low profile and mesh straps. Any recommendations? Have been looking at Camelbak, Nathan & Osprey.

Try merino wool (icebreaker)
It takes the moisture of your body and keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
After riding / sweating you don't even smell it for a few days.
Perfect but not cheap !

My solution. Coleman jug on the pax footpeg and a camelbak tube/bite valve routed to where I need it. Cold water all day, if I fill with ice in the morning.
