Great fit

These vest are the best I’ve found and don’t cause any discomfort to me as a trail runner. The bladder is easy to get to and easy to refill on the go for marathons etc.

Excellent

A well made vest made for any endurance event or race. Held all my gear to include rain jacket, headlamp, 5x energy goo, 3x sports bars, half liter water bottle, and plenty of front pockets for more. There are no large compartments with zippers or Velcro to secure items in aside from the 1 liter camelback pouch provided you remove the bladder. Main issue I had during my event was that the pack's straps would loosen resulting in it sagging to the rear of my back when running. After securing the excess slack into the retaining straps built in, the issue went away and I was able to get back into my normal rhythm. It's obvious the designers put a lot of thought of what endurance runners need into this pack. Great investment!

Most Comfy Vest I’ve Found

I have been using a waist belt up til now for half marathons and want to attempt my first full later this year, so wanted a hydration vest. I have tried three different brands within the week and found this to be my favorite. I am petite (5’3”, 125#) so I was worried a unisex vest would not work for me but I was shocked when it fit better than the women’s specific ones. My only complaint on this end is I am having to make shift something to tie up the extra side strap so it doesn’t hit me in the arm the whole time. Even with sticking part of the extra in the clip for that purpose I have at least six inches hanging down and it slides out if I try to double it up in the clip. But I am using a hair tie to tie it up for now! Short of cutting it off and finding someone with a heavy duty sewing machine to sew it up I don’t know there is anything else to do. BUT even with that this vest has everything I was looking for. The flasks are perfect in the front and I have plenty of space for all my fuel and my largish phone. And it doesn’t rub or hurt! Thank you, Orange Mud!

Glad you dig it Sadie! On the side straps, just fill it up, put on the heaviest base layer you think you'd use and test it running (or riding) and note the strap length you'd prefer and take a sharpie to mark it. Then make sure it's equal on both sides, and cut! It's best to burn it with a lighter on the ends so it won't unravel. Sewing over is an option, but not needed so an easy fix! Tks!

Great for a bigger frame

I have been running for a while now and have struggled to find a pack that fits my frame but isn't too large or bulky. This pack fits me with plenty of room to spare, the bladder stays put and I have tons of room for all of the snacks/hydration stuff I need.
