For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure I would be dead if my camelbak had been banned on my mission. Tracting in 130 degree weather without one sounds like a deathwish to me. People loved asking me what it was; it was a great conversation starter. It was even a dark, missionary-esque color. I hope the mission presidents in hot areas see fit to make Camelbaks an exception.

From personal experience, I expect swapping backpacks for shoulder bags to result in several truly epic bike wipeouts.

Sudden weight shifts will do that.
