Amongst walkers and climbers they're known as 'water bladders' or 'platypuses' after a popular brand, and the ones that come in their own little harness are often seen as a gimmick xD But they're invaluable when walking and most rucksacks come with a suitable pouch and hole for the hose. I find that I drink way, way more when I can take small mouthfuls regularly than when I have to chug down half a litre at once.

This is a CamelBak bladder in its own little harness. Sounds like the kind of thing that would be good for you - you can slip your phone in there too.

This is a Platypus :) It's basically a bag, a house and a mouthpiece.

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

Umm.... I used to freeze bottles of water too... but now "they" are saying that freezing or heating ( like microwaveable bowls) plastic releases toxins that cause cancer. I dunno how true it is... but I have seen that 90% of the microwavable/frozen food bowls have been pulled over grocery shelves in the last year or so.

Yup, just go with a knapsack or fanny pack. Ask Santa for the English saddle trail pack.
