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.

Gear Vest, 2L (1 liter bladder)

I love orange mud products

I have been using the single barrel for several years and have also gifted a few.

The are great for 5k, 10k, and half marathons (road and trail)

I am currently training for a marathon and needed something a bit bigger.

I have been training with the gear vest for a few weeks and love its functionality; front pockets for more waters, electrolytes or chews.... still extremely comfortable.
