Rated5out of5byoutdoorgirl14fromLove love this!I used this to train for a marathon and just completed a marathon using it. I loved that I didn't have to carry anything in my hands and it wasn't to bulky but it was big enough to carry enough fluid, energy gels, phone, etc.. I would totally recommend this!!

Rated5out of5byBronx BikerfromComfortable and not cumbersomeI've never had a hydration pack before. I chose Camelback because of the name and reviews that I read. The pack is comfortable and secure. It has enough storage for my bike tube, tire pump, and camera. The only thing is it doesn't come with instructions on how to fill and clean. That information is available on their website.

Rated5out of5bywendykroyfromworks well for long runsI used to have a camelbak 15 years ago when i was an avid runner. now that i have taken it up again and am doing long runs, i needed some mobile hydration and remembered my camelbak of years ago. this new one is SO much better than that old one. it is a snap to fill. if you turn it upside down and suck out the air after filling; there won't be any sloshing around when you run. I didn't adjust it well on my first run and it was very bouncy but it was much better after adjustments. I am very busty so I don't think i will ever get a perfect fit (tried on others at the store too) but this one is light, small and has two zippered pockets and two external mesh pockets and i wanted something functional yet unobtrusive. i have no interest in carrying water bottles or stashing water on the hops that one one sees me and makes off with it. It fits my hydration needs and makes my long runs so much more bearable.

Rated5out of5byIrene SLCfromLove This PackI purchased this for mountain biking, and it's been a great hydration pack for that. I started using it on runs both on and off the trail and it's done well for those activities too. I really love the pockets for stashing food, phone, and bike items. Also between the body of the pack and the lower pocket, there's room to stuff a light cycling jacket or shirt, perfect for runs/rides that start on the cooler side. So far I've only used it for rides/runs that have lasted up to two hours and it carries more than enough water. When I run, the pack doesn't bounce on my back. I thought it would be a pain to run with, but I hardly ever notice it. All in all, it's been a great purchase for me.

Rated5out of5byHorsey1fromLifesaver in S TXI work for an equine veterinarian in S TX - mostly outdoor active work with summer temps around 100. Running in and out of the clinic for drinks of water would seriously interfere with job duties. Asked my mountain biking brother for advice on staying hydrated and he discussed what to consider on which style of Camelbak to buy. I have added a hip-level stabilizing strap, which I also found at REI, but otherwise it has simply been a lifesaver!
