There are some great hydration pack options available for people around five feet tall. The packs with substantial hip belts are often meant to haul a fair amount of gear in addition to a water reservoir. There are also packs designed mostly to carry water with room for only a few other small items and their hip belts tend to be much thinner.
There are a ton of options for you out there I personally carry a three liter hydration pack and I am good with that on most trips, recently I have started only using smart water bottles and I carry a water purifier with me the swayer brand but there are lots of packs that are great from rei as well as amazon just really depends on your use and how much you want to spend.
