Me likey  ;D  I was thinking about doing something similar with the gun idea, but i was thinking about using a simple bacta cartridge insert instead of the tank.  But the design you have looks awesome ner'vod!!!  Can't wait to see how it turns out!

For the bacta, I have thought that the best stuff to use would be hand sanitizer.  It is gel and does not look like water.  It sloshes and bubbles nicely in it if you add a battery powered fish tank air thingy.  It is a thick medium and would take a couple of blue LEDs nicely.  Finally, it won't grow algae or mold or anything else.

But it is alcohol based and will evaporate VERY quickly if exposed to air.

Dish soap.  Additional benefit is that it's usually already colored.

I was thinking corn syrup... I used corn syrup and red dye for my first pack. Just need water proof the container and window, if you had one.

....it would be sticky lol

Orikad's idea of dish soap would be better because it is inert.

Try tonic water, if you put a uv led under it the liquid will glow,  and it is drinkable so you could have something to drink too.

were slowly degenerating to more liquild based and not gel based.  I'm just waiting for the next person to say "No! use water!!"
lol

I thought of hair gel because it actually has bubbles suspended in it, giving the illuminated fluid more contrast, but not so much to overpower the whole idea.  I'll give a few of the ideas a try before I pick my product.

You need to also note that liquid is going to be really heavy.  I know one of our old medics Cerjo Aclos uses a colored liquid in his bacta backpack and it weighs like 15lbs.

How about just blue acrylic plastic lit from behind?  Doesn't give the effect of liquid, but doesn't leak and doesn't weigh the pack down like liquid/gel would.

Good Points both.  AA and myself have both done some extensive backpacking in the past.  I'm planning on keeping the bottles small, however the only real issue besides leaking is having that kind of weight centered on your shoulders, not your hip where it should rest.  When we go backpacking we always store our water at the bottom of our packs and keep it balanced around our hip.

Um, what about a fake bottle?  Take the larger bottle (like a clear sports bottle) and glue a smaller clear bottle inside of it.  Then, when you fill the larger bottle, it will look full with just a fraction of the weight.

And, as for the hand-sanitizer evaporating, just keep it sealed and the stuff won't evaporate.
