Awesome vest for all body types

This vest is awesome! Very well thought out - water placement, fuel pouches, etc.

Love that it’s adjustable on the sides and across the chest which makes the fit customizable and comfy no matter what your size. Purchased the additional 20oz water bottle for the front to have variety in drinks I’m carrying and it fits perfect!

Good but...

Great pack, fits well and doesn't bounce. Minimal chafing, except on the nipples. I have a muscular chest and there is no food way to place the cross bands to avoid chafing. It is manageable for the first 20 miles, but it starts to wear on you.

I'd suggest criss-crossing the straps!

Love this vest! Changed my running life!

I’ve worn this vest for short 3 miler and just finished my first Half marathon.

I couldn’t be happier with it. I have the 1L and it’s perfect.

Stays in place and the pockets are perfect.

Would def recommend 100x over

Love the pack....not suitable for layers

Love how the pack rides and fits close to the body. Extra pockets are perfect for phone and food. Bungee in the back is perfect for storage of a light jacket if you get too hot. I have only worn this pack so far in the winter and tends to move around and come loose with a light jacket on. Straps are long on my torso so I will need to consider cutting them down. Elastic straps on the front are very stretchy and seems flimsy. I am not sure how long they will last. Overall, nice pack though and totally worth the $$!

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.
