Um, what about a fake bottle?  Take the larger bottle (like a clear sports bottle) and glue a smaller clear bottle inside of it. 

The LED light would illuminate both bottles exposing that there's a 2nd bottle, imo appearing tacky

Just build a small square plastic container for the backpack, maybe 4 inches x 4 inches (or just over window size) x 1 inch. You get all the liquid looks without much weight.

The only problem with liquid is even if you caulk up the boxes/bottles/containers, with heat and cold the liquid inside (and the air inside) wants to expand and contract.  It WILL leak at some point.  I would avoid liquids altogether and look at alternate means.

See kids, this is why u pay attention in school.
I once had the very same issue out in Denver, CO where the ground would expand and compact the internet cable, which mind u, they never layed in pvc, just a loose wire running to the complex.

That sucked, when our internet kept screwing up...

SO how about a holoprojector to make it look like water?
HEH.
No, really, get some stuff that mimics water, slip it into your "bottles", then build around it.

Acrylic water or floral setting resin... Light weight, moderate price, dries solid, can be dyed with food coloring or model paint. And no sweating/evap issues.

And if you wait until it's juuuust about fully hardened but barely on the liquid side of a jello consistency, i'm told you can blow bubbles into it and they should stay like that!

To the OP: You should submit this to the Medic Bridgades WIP collection so we can monitor it!

I used two-part liquid epoxy from loc-tite, I mixed it really fast to get the bubbles then used a green led to illuminate it from inside. This was a syringe though, not as large as a bottle.

I need my back plate first so i can figure out how to mount it to that.  instead of running with additional straps, I'm gonna try it with a mount system first.  I'm order some of Vod K'raam's metal armor, so i think the back plate will hold up to the light stress if i connect it to the plate itself. 

Now just gotta figure how to keep the back plate on in such a way the weight of the light backpack won't pull it down.

Just an idea to add into the bacta pack thing, you could also go smaller with a bacta canister. The bounty hunter concepts from TOR have a canister on the lower back like how the TKs have the thermal detonators. They are easy as pie to make.
