Can I get a few opinions on carrying plain old water bottles or using a water bladder. I tried putting a water bottle in each side mesh pocket, but I can't quite reach to put the bottle back. I would have to take off pack to get a drink and put bottle back. I guess that can be a good thing to do every hour or so anyway. It seems like a pain to refill the water bladder. I have a Platypus Big Zip. At least it opens from the top with a zip lock type closing.
