    CamelBak FlashFlo LR Hydration Waistpack - 50 fl. oz. is rated 3.5455 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Pack for Running Hydration I used the pack for longer runs where carrying hydration is necessary. I have tried bottle belts and found them to bob too much and invariably the belt twists around. Carrying a bottle in hand also seems rather clumsy to me; I could not imagine doing that for 10, 15, 20+ miles, especially with the volume of fluid needed for those longer runs, one bottle in hand might not be enough (or would be too gigantic). I also tried hydration backpacks, but found it uncomfortable to have 50-100oz. fluid on my back and shoulders. This pack gives me exactly the kind of hydration carrying style I like, and is quite stable, without a lot of up and down bobbing. One does need to tighten the waist belt periodically, but this is easy enough to do: just pull the two belt straps apart. There are also smaller straps in the back to cinch down when the fluid compartment is emptied more and more. The complaint I read here about the tubing being too short: I did not find this to be short at all. I am 5'10-11". Plus, there is one more thing to try: the pack came from the store with the tubing coming out of the bag on the left side; the tubing actually comes out of the reservoir bladder on its right side, and there is an identical pack opening on the right for tubing to come out, so I just rerouted the tubing to come out of the pack on the right and that gave me even more slack. Opening the pockets during running is not that easy; but I found it possible to just turn the bag temporarily to the front to open for gels, etc. and then turn the pack to the back again. All in all, a nice hydration pack that avoids the "back to school" look and feel of a backpack, and keeps your hand free.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pak with a few upgrades. I really like Camelbak products, I was a little skeptical when I read the reviews for this product. I went to the store in ABQ and loaded this pack and essentially ran around the store and found what I did and didn't like about it. Yes it will roll on you with alot of gear and water in the pack. BUT, it took me 5 minutes to fix that problem. I had one of those flexable cutting boards that were very thin. I cut it to fit in the pack (I initially used cardboard to ensure that I got the right size). I know what your thinking is that why should I have to go through all of this, well it's all about how you want to wear it. I didn't mind going through this to ensure that I would use this for a long time running. But that is up to you, there was no actual product tampering, just some minor addon's. I also added a longer hose, I'm 6'2" and 250lbs so I needed a little more length on the hose so that I didn't fall over while running and trying to get a drink. Don't let the flopping over get you to not purchase this product. YOu can fix this extremely cheap if you really wanted.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not so much for runners I attempted to run with it, then wondered why am I running with 50oz of h2o? Not really necessary. It is bulky for a run doesn't stay in place other mentions it coming loose and that is fact. I use it cycling and it was great large enough to hold my hand pump and a few snacks. It will be best used for me hiking and biking. Definitely would not recommend it for running.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent Easy to use, don't have to stop to take drink, plenty of water for 1/2 marathon. Stays cool for almost 2 1/2 hours if I put ice in with drink/

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for some activities I bought this for running. Used it for hiking, biking, and running. The pack has to be positioned down low over your hips. Some people have complained that the tube is not long enough. I found it sufficient, especially since you can route it left or right to get different lengths. The clip took me a while to figure out how to open (for attaching the bite valve to your clothing). Lots of storage without bulk/weight. Water proof. It's unfortunate that the tube cannot be disconnected; that's a major flaw in my opinion. For hiking - this is a great pack. Very comfortable. Would recommend to a friend for this purpose. For biking - (casual street riding): I was surprised at how extremely comfortable the pack was. Easy to use. Holds lots of water without being heavy/hot on your back. Would recommend to a friend for this purpose. It doesn't offer the protection that over-the-back packs offer in terms of trail riding. For running - useless. I couldn't get it to stop moving around. The waist clip broke on my first run.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than a bottle! Easy to fill - easy to clean! Do it up tight and there is no "bounce" at all, very comfortable!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good pack, but expect to modify the belt I can't stand the noise of water flopping around in half-empty bottles, so a bladder-based pack is the way to go. The pack works great, except for the fact the belt won't stay tight. As another reviewer noted, having to pull it tight every 30 seconds is amazingly annoying. Hoever, the belt slippage issue was easily rectified by adding a tri-glide to the strap on each side. Why Camelbak didn't do this in the first place is beyond me. I haven't experienced the flopping problem that others have found so distressing. I found it very stable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product with slight improvement I bought this to use on my motorcycle. The only negative is that the tube is about a foot too short for using on a motorcycle. It requires you to take your eyes completely off the road in order to drink from it. So I went to a hardware store and bought a length of 3/8" clear flexible plastic tubing and replaced the blue tubing on the waistpack with tubing about a foot longer. Now it is perfect. Cost about $4.
