I would highly reccomend getting a backpack you can put a water bladder in like the camelback suggested. I have an Osprey version that was a bit cheaper that carries a 3 liter bladder. Before I used one I would carry a water bottle in my pack but found I would drink less frequently than I should because I didn't want to stop and haul it out. Having the mouthpiece right next to your face that you can sip on ensured I was staying hydrated. It also has the perfect amount of room for food and extra layers. Wouldn't hike without it.

as a hiker, i'd like to recommend cycle capri pants or running pants for longer hikes (4+ miles out and back). you want pants that are very tight with no loose fabric to rub you raw. when i hiked half dome for the first time, i wore regular workout capris and i got chafed like crazy between my legs and on my lower back where my day pack rubbed. the second time i hiked half dome, i wore very tight capris from REI that definitely kept the chafing away! and for just-in-case i brought bodyglide which can be applied anywhere to keep chafing away.
