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
Good buy for the money, however you can't put anymore in it than the bladder really as I found the extra weight meant the chest strap kept slipping up to my neck as there's no waist strap so it does bounce a bit.
Bought this pack for an OCR ( Spartan Beast) very light and not bulky at all. I use it every time I go for a run. Awesome!!!
I got this a I was running a Spartan Beast and after a race of 5 hours last year I thought I'd go into this years race a little more prepared. I have to say I was so impressed. I hardly knew I was wearing the pack once adjusted and its big enough to store the bladder and a few gels. You could even put in a light top too but I needed to keep the volume down. I wasn't just running but climbing over walls and crawling under barbed wire and it didn't get in the way one bit. Bladder worked well and even has a little pouch to pop the mouth piece in so it didn't get too muddy. For the money this hydration pack is amazing value and I cannot fault it!!
Although this product is advertised as a running hydration pack we actually purchased it for our 2 & 1/2 year old daughter to wear during a holiday in the Lakes. It was fantastic, a brilliant way to make sure she was hydrated and she loved wearing the back pack, asking for it every day. Brilliant price too
Great for carrying more water and very comfoywith 1litre. Not sure how you'd fit in 5 litres though.
I bought this on recommendation through RMR. I haven't been disappointed. No leaks, good quality and great price. Handy pocket for phone, gels etc. The icing on the cake would be a phone pocket which is accessible but overall no grumbles.
I've had two of these now, I'm sure if I'm doing something wrong but the bladder is very weak, cracks easily and leaks. The bag itself isn't bad for the money, but I'd spend extra for a hydration pack that is far more reliable than this.
I bought this product to try it out. I didn't want to spend a fourtune on something that turns out I don't like it or wouldn't use. I got on so well with this and no need to buy a more expensive one.
