    Hello, it's been a while and I hope everyone is doing well with everything going on.

    We've got 2 kids and when we go hiking I'm the designated "bartender" for carrying all the water bottles. I've got packs with 2 external pockets and then I put 2 bottles inside the pack but everyone wants a drink at different times, and they don't tip ;), so I'm looking for a pack with 4 pockets so they can just pull them off my back at their convenience. I could use a molle pack and get some water bottle attachments on the outside, but does anyone know of a pack with 4 external pockets? If you can't think of a pack with 4 pockets outside then please suggest your lightweight packs and external molle water bottle attachements.

    Make them carry their own water!
    Figuratively and literally.

    or you can opt to have a bag with two external pockets for 2 bottle, then remaining two, hang in the front strap d ring via carabiner, if it has. this way, two bottles will easily be on your reach.

    I thought about that but I don’t want anything swinging around on the front straps.

    Well the Rush 24 has Molle where you can stick 2 holders and then there are the super secret side pockets that can hold 2 more bottles!
    These are maybe my favorite feature of that pack too!

    And you can really do the same thing with any pack with the standard 2 pockets already and Molle outside to hang 2 more.
    I like the Camelbak Bottle pockets as they do not flop around much and can be sealed up too.
    But you can also hang a couple of roll up drop pouches and stick bottles in those,I carry a drop pouch just for this purpose in my main travel pack at all times.

    And it is never too early to teach Hydrate or Die!

    Totally agree mine has water bottle external ones that go flat either side on the water bottle side pouches works just fine

    Yes, I like the 24 which I have and I also have a 12 and All Hazards plus a Grey Ghost Assault Pack. What pack do you like for EDC and what is your main travel pack?

    I mainly EDC a Synapse 25 and travel with the 1st Tactical Tactix 1 Day,both are amazing bags.

    I also have many bags like you including 2-Rush24s and have tried more than I have kept,I also like the Evade,any flavor and the Camelbak Urban Dispatch which is the one with the hidden CCW pockets.
