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.

Trail running

Overall I really like this pack. It’s secure on the back, and does not bounce up and down. The weight of the water is distributed evenly, and it feels balanced. The bottles and bladder are well made, and easy to clean. The bottles do however give the water a yucky taste, which probably means I’m drinking plastic chemicals. The bladder water tastes fine. My only other complaint is that the 2 chest straps are made out of a really slippery material, causing them to slip through the buckles and constantly loosen when I run. I remedied this by holding them in place with some rubber elastics.

Absolutely Perfect!!

This pack is exactly what I needed! Not too big but enough to carry enough water for a long run. The elastic chest straps wonderful. They allow you to get the pack tight enough so its not bouncing around and doesn't restrict chest when breathing heavily.
