I have an idea for the water issue. I was thinking you could add full length side pockets to your pack in order to carry a 3 litre camel pack on each side. For the drought that's going on in many areas I would think this would work quite well to let you carry 6litres of water. If you don't need that much then don't fill them up completely. If you really want to carry more you could still add the traditional center back camel back too! You could carry 9 Litres in with you. I had another thought to just make them attachable with side release buckles wich would make filling them easier.
