Would receive five stars if it were not for the leaky lids on the bottles...
This thing is great for someone who's looking to carry more water but doesn't want to go to a bladder. I get hot easily and this was a nice compromise since it only covers your upper back. The front pockets hold a lot of gels and junk and the strap pockets above them are also very versatile. I put my old flip phone and electrolyte caps in there (in a change fob). The feature to carry the third bottle in between the two bottles sort of works, but I need to dial in the tightness since the bottle was initially falling out. I think it will work eventually. I had two concerns early: 1.) I was worried about chafing under the armpits but the advice they gave in their online video tells you how to avoid any. 2.) The bottles leaked around the lids and I contacted customer service and they sent me two more. Of the four, only two leak (and it's not really much but they did get my pack wet once) so it's not the end of the world. They also just hold more water. I decided to order the Pure 26 oz bottles which supposedly fit, so there's that. I wore it on a recent half trail on a hot day with no issues. I was not overheating from it as I have with other pack products.
