The "doughnut" hand-held bottles are good. I forget I'm carrying mine.
For the longest runs and warmer weather I have a running belt with a couple of small bottles of water. I've found it more comfortable and accessible to wear back-to-front, with the bottles and gel pack under my spare tyre
Most often in the current weather, I come home with almost as much water as I left with - even after three hours running.
I have a couple of swiggies (http://www.swiggiesuk.com/) which I mainly use in races or faster runs. They are less annoying than carrying a bottle, but do hurt my wrist a bit if I use them every run.
For longer, slower runs I use one of these doughnit ones, and find it less annoying than I expected to.
I just bought one of these. backpack
I reckon that's cracking value and it's made by Asics so it must be pretty good for running. I'll have it delivered by the end of the week then Sunday's my next big run.
