I bought this as I had no choice in the store at that point of time for next day's run. It has design problem and becomes a burden during runnin . There is no waist strap and the upper strap is too close to neck. It further moves up with weight of water.. Have to run again on 17th July - I don't think that I will be using this.
Poor design with no waist strap
Thanks for taking the time to write to us,
We are really sorry that hydration bag didn't meet your expectation. As you have mentioned in your review regarding the design and strap so it might be because the strap was not tightened properly, if it is tightened properly it will be within the dorsal area of the back and there you don't need a waist strap (image link mentioned below for your reference). I will like to request you to tighten it properly to check if it is okay or not.

Its a good bag obviously,it will be better if it has a extra pockets and waterproof pocket for a mobile
Lighter ,stylish ,compact hydration pack
Must have a waterproof case for mobile inside
This bag is very good value for money and far passed my expectations. I have large phone (iPhone 6+) and just drop it in the main part of the bag with the pouch. No shaking, noise & very comfy. Bargain!!!
Great value hydration bag, performed to my expectations on a gruelling 17 mile coast run in Cornwall. Would recommend this product .
No complaints at all about the pack - it's light, doesn't chafe once it's adjusted properly, very stretchy so you can fit a suprising amount in but the bladder is really fiddly, I've swapped it with my old one.
There is a zip pocket inside however I have to squash my phone into it and the pocket is too small to zip shut with phone in. Bag is comfy. If you dont want the pipe to flap up and down make sure you have tightened the bag to your back to help this I found. Was fiddly setting up first few uses but now I got hang of it is well made actually.
Minimalistic, Lightweight, Zip pocket inside
Abit fidly to setup I found but fine gotten used 2
I bought this vest for the Brighton Marathon as my two little Karrimor bottles were not enough.
The bladder pipe is so long that when you put it into the bag it gets a kink in it so the water does not flow out. I ended up having to pull the pipe right out, drink and then try to push it back in or else it flapped about on my chest
It used up a lot if my energy fighting with this vest.
It is also a shame that there is nowhere to store your phone or gels, There Is a pocket there but too small to fit anything in it.
Small and Lightweight
The pipe is too long and there is no pocket
Started marathon training really didn't like carrying a water bottle in my hand this product was ideal it is lightweight and after a short time you hardly notice you are carrying a bagback.
Compy easy to use helps to keep me hydrated
No negatives a good useful product
This is my first hydration pack and for the price I thought I would buy it just to get used running with a pack with a view to buying something more fancy in the near future. No need - this fits the bill. 1 litre bladder included is nice and easy to clean and I store it in the freezer. 1 litre bladder has been perfect size for run of 13 miles in hot weather.
very light. comfortable to wear. easy to clean
