I love these types of solutions. One bottle does for most of my rides and tube, pump and tools are on the bike always ready and never forgotten. Longer rides or where I might need extra clothes and the butt back comes out with an MSR filter for water fill ups. No shortage of streams and ponds here.  Mountain bikers and packs are kind of like the frog in boiling water in that packs got larger and larger until we didn’t notice we were carrying way more than we needed because we could. The first Camelbak I owned was a simple foam sleeve with teeny straps. Then there were covers with small pockets for a few things. Before you know it we were carrying extra derailleurs and batteries and winter jackets, because you had room. There will be times when a pack is the smart thing to carry. I avoid those times now.
