I use bells during hunting season. Lot of really stupid hunters in the area and if I were to tell you about some of those encounters you'd cringe. Pheasant season mostly. I would have never imagined...

My daughter carries a camelback skiing. I'm rarely out long enough where a bottle of water stuffed into a fanny pack won't do. Plus most of the running water here is clean enough to drink. Just have to stay away from areas with a beaver dam.

I've got fishing gear in my fanny back. = ]

Yeh I would say the bells make sense for areas with predators or during shooting/hunting season.

I'm stuck between these two Camelbaks:
1) CamelBak | OCTANE LR 2L Lumbar Hydration Pack for Multisport

2) CamelBak | BAJA LR 3L Lumbar Hydration System for Stand Up Paddle

I've found them elsewhere for about $20 cheaper than listed above.

I forgot to take the bell out the other day and we came up on a coyote... Kix wasn't too thrilled about that. After lots of snorting and stomping and refusal to move an inch further in that direction, we continued on lol. I did remember to take it the next day though, and it really came in handy with the cows! They heard us much sooner and didn't get all bunched up and nervous since they saw us coming.
Ah the water issue. It's a constant training moment anytime we're near water which becomes interesting since we have 500 acres that lines the beach/bay. This normally would be a great opportunity to get his feet wet (literally) lol, but we have deep slick mud between the hard packed sand and the water :(. Much too dangerous to try.
I'm working on a first aid kit so I'll let y'all know how that goes

2L has always been enough for me out mustering as I don't drink much, however a friend would go through 3L easily as she gets bored and drinks constantly!

I am short and I have a 1.5 or 2L camelpak, I love it for hiking or biking, but it irritates the crap out of me riding. The bottom of it is just low enough (because I am short and it is long) that it hits the back of my saddle and the sloshing when I post is just aggravating. I keep trying it, then throwing it back in the pickup in disgust when we get back to the barn...
