Camelbak has a good number of hydration carriers, but the Armorbak is the first optimized with the design intent to go on tactical vests. The majority is made of 500D cordura and is generally low profile with no additional pouches or compartments. To mount the Armorbak, 4 repair SRBs are used to attach to PALS webbing. Once connected the straps can be tightened to create pressure if desired which is great for spraying.
If you need a low profile hydration unit that can be mounted on or off armor, then the Thermobak AB is definately worth checking out. The design appears to be a mix of older Thermobak designs and the Armorbak to result in something along the lines of an Armorbak with shoulder straps.

Camelbak teamed up Mystery Ranch on this one offering their unique trizip zipper opening layout. The attention to detail on the small features really makes this pack stand out as a quality pack. Starting off I'll note the Futura Harness is extra heavy duty offering loads of padding and support. Feel free to put whatever the hell you want in this pack since the harness strap system is built tough enough to hold loads usually applied to much larger packs.
My crew and I happily picked up some of these at shotshow 2008. The concept appears to be a clear response to Nalgene's monopoly on the durable / re-usable bottle market. While I'm here I'd like to share my feelings on typical disposable container bottled water. This is the dumbest shit I have seen in a while. People are willing to pay $1+ for 16 FL oz. when you could get a whole 2 liter of soda for the same amount. I can understand bottled water for emergency preparation packages and similar needs, but masses of people guzzle it down in their cozy offices daily. Not only are you getting reamed price wise, but typically the water is less clean bacteria / poison wise, and then you are making a bunch of trash with the throw-away bottle. If you drink a lot of water and don't like the taste of your area tap water, for god sakes find a filter solution, because that is all bottle water is.
