Great products, as all Orange Mud things are!

This is my third OM hydration pack. I have the Hydraquiver single and double. Decided to try a bladder type. This is a very sturdy, well constructed vest. The 1Lt bladder is perfect for shorter runs in the heat. The small footprint sits snug between your shoulders and doesn't bounce or slosh. If you're a smaller person, you will have a bit of extra strapping once you tighten the straps under your arms. There are clips to hold the extra strap in place, but they do tend to rub and could probably be cut or covered with moleskin tape. The two straps across the front can be adjusted to different heights, so for women with boobs, it works well, as you can move them over or underneath the girls. More than enough storage for fuel and phone. The mouth piece doesn't leak at all, yet is easy to drink from and you can get a mouthful of water quickly.

My only regret was not purchasing this sooner

After doing long distance running for 5 years, I could no longer stand my hydration belt. It moved as a ran, & I hated were it sat on my body. Plus, it made running bibs logistically more difficult. After trying on this hydration pack at the Las Vegas Rock ‘n’ Roll Expo, I promptly added it to my Christmas wish list. I was so pleased to receive it from my family, & I have been loving it ever since. I no longer dread my long runs. This pack makes it easy to carry with me everything I need (or might need). You can tell it was thoughtfully designed. I have zero complaints & have been singing its praises to fellow runners.

Exactly what I needed

Wanted something that holds about 32oz of water and 16oz of sport drink (w/ bottle add on), along with some snacks and my phone. This nailed it. Super easy to clean too.

Great pack!

I love this pack! The 1 liter bladder on the back is just the right size for me. My favorite features are the large front strap pockets that can hold my large iPhone 11 Pro Max in OtterBox case which until now I could only carry in my pocket shorts or in the back of my previous pack (and thus inaccessible). I can also place an extra water bottle or two in those same pockets if going out for longer runs where I want more than the 1 liter bladder. The higher ride pack also makes it much more comfortable to wear than my replaced mid-back pack. The bladder tube was a bit longer than I needed and resulting in tube flopping during runs, so I easily trimmed off about 2.5 inches. Works perfect now. Finally, my rain jacket fits nicely on the exterior holding straps so I no longer have to worry about trying to stuff it in my pack beside the bladder (like my old pack).

Like a second skin

I love this pack. It holds so much. And doesn’t jar around. I live how high it sits.

The only thing I don’t like is that there is no zipper closure at all for a key or money.
