Rated4out of5bymemoDINOloriafromlight and to the point hydrationI use this pack while SUPing and love it. It is the right size where it doesnt throw me off balance or feel like its in the way of my strokes. I forgot it was there during a couple of long paddles! I do wish the one pocket was slightly bigger. It is almost too small to really use for anything.

Rated5out of5bycamil1mjfromGreat for long runs!Bought this for marathon training. Used it for my 20 mile run. Works great. I wish it had a bigger pocket, but I guess that is why they have the next step up from the classic for more money.

Rated4out of5bynevada4fromnice hydration packUsed this for the first time during a Tough Mudder event. Worked great. My only complaint was that I wished the storage pocket on the front to be a little larger. The pack kept tight to my body, was easy to adjust (even when my fingers were muddy), easy to drink from, and easy to take apart to clean out the mud.

Rated5out of5byLC Standup PaddlerfromPerfect minimalist hydration pack!I needed a very minimal hydration pack that would not interfere with a standup paddling race. This pack is perfect! It carries plenty of water, is comfortable and lightweight. The straps do not interfere with my ability to paddle, nor do they interfere with my waistband PFD. I love that it is very minimal; I did not need a pack with many pockets or capacity for storage. I will also use this for SUP touring (day trips). As a 5'-6" tall woman, the length of the pack is perfect for me, not too long. I love it!

Rated4out of5byRene the RunnerfromGreat Running PackI use this pack on long runs in the 20-30 mile range and during race day too. I too was a bit nervous that it would bounce around too much, but it has worked like a champ. Even on the very uneven terrain on the trails in the Texas Hill Country, this pack has held up extremely well.
I bought this pack in the summer of 2011 and still use it as my go to pack on my running adventures. On race day it's easy to get help refilling the pack and the wide opening makes for a quick re-fill of ice and liquid (common camelbak trait). Only time it's ever leaked was when I didn't tighten the cap all the way.
I've only filled it with a sports drink 1 time and it didn't take to long to clean out.
I sometimes wear this without a shirt and it'll chafe my lower back a bit if I don't put vaseline on there. I've also started throwing a few gels behind the bladder in the main compartment and that's worked well too. It really only has a pocket for a couple of gels or keys/ID. The bungee cord across the lower half has worked well to hold a tshirt or a hat. One time I even took the bladder out completely and just used it to carry gels, bars, and a couple of sandwiches.

Rated5out of5bydrberylfromDoes exactly what I want it to doI got it for long distance motorcycling so I don't have to stop to get a sip of water. I like this particular one because of it's small size but it still has more than enough water to last me all day in the saddle. And it doesn't go so far down my back that it bumps into the stuff I have strapped on to the back seat. The tube has just enough rigidity that I can slide it up under my full face helmet to get a sip easily.
