      by fromnot a fit for me I was hopeful this would work ok for me. I took on a test run. I found out quickly this device bounced a lot. If worn on my mid-rif it did not bounce as much, but affected my breathing. I'm tall and thin, with not much of a behind, so maybe that's why it felt uncomfortable. As always REI handled the return in their normal hassle free, no problem way.

      by fromHardly know you're carying it Great for running. Does not bounce around and is secure. It can leak, but only if the valve is not seated completely. I can hardly tell I'm carrying it.

      by fromI love it! First, let me say I tried two other hydration waist packs before this one. I used a Camelbak Delaney Plus and thought it was an instrument of torture. Only made it 1/2 mile before thinking of flinging it into the bushes. Tried another REI pack, same result. I tried the Amphipod Velocity and I LOVE IT for the following reasons: 1. Once I had the belt adjusted, I barely knew it was there. I wore it just below my belly button, with the bottle nested against my back. I love the elastic belt! (That is what was missing from the other two belts I tried). I had the water bottle and the pocket full. 2. I did not have any issues with the water bottle being secure. It hardly bounced/moved except slightly on a long downhill part of my run and that was minimal. (I ran 11 miles of mountain roads with it, and no problem). The only thing I can say about the other guy who lost the bottle is maybe you didn't put the bungee over the bottle. You reinsert the bottle into the slot and push it slightly into the bungee to secure it. It worked just fine. 3. The pocket appears small, but I fit my cell phone, a package of tissues, and a gel and could have fit more. It stretches like crazy! 4. I love the flat water bottle. Very comfortable! My only complaint is the water bottle lid. I love the camelbak podium lid. I was able to switch it out...problem solved! I recommend this pack!

      by fromLOVE it! Bought this pack after being unhappy with a 2-bottle CamelBak system. I don't like having things around my waist, but this product works amazingly well. A problem I had with the prior pack was the waistband constantly needing adjusting, and then it riding up. I like to wear a pack across my hipbones, and once I got this one adjusted correctly it did not move. The elastic waistband is much more comfortable and the gear pocket is very roomy. No sloshing sound from the bottle either, which makes me crazy!!

      by fromNice and stable I bought this to carry water on my daily runs, and it fits the bill well. I had been using an Amphipod 20-oz handheld that works well, but this is more comfortable and I like having my hands free. I added a pair of 10.1-oz Snap Pods for use during my longer runs. The zippered pouch has enough room for ID, a key, and perhaps a couple of food bars - maybe more. With the belt reasonably snug, there's no bouncing. The 20-oz bottle stays securely in its sleeve, thanks to a small bungee that loops over the nozzle. The SnapPods I added installed on the belt easily, and the bottles snap securely into place with a reassuring click.

      by fromFinally!! No more bouncing or handhelds! I have been training for a half and I was getting really frustrated with other packs and just sick of carrying a handheld for miles and miles. This did bounce a slight bit initially but decreased as I drank. The bounce was very slight and not too annoying. Bottle was big enough to keep me hydrated on my 8 mile run and I still had some when I got home. I haven't tried out the pouch but it does seem like enough for a gel, key, maybe a smaller phone. I 'think' you can buy additional pockets that go on the belt if you need more storage. The stretchy belt made all the difference in less bouncing and comfort. I could wear the pack on my lower waist just below my naval, still higher than I would like but much lower than 4 other waist packs I have tried.

      by fromFunctional and stable I've used this belt on many runs of 10K and up and it has worked out very well. My only complaint is that the buckles loosen easily so it's important to re-tighten the belt before each run. If the belt is tight enough, with the bottle positioned over the small of my back there is almost no bounce and after the first few runs I was completely comfortable with it. I have had no issues with the bottle falling out, I can only speculate that the reviewers who have had that problem did not secure it with the bungee keeper. I've added Amphipod's pouch for my large cellphone and that works well also. I give this waist pack only four stars because of the slipping buckle issue, but that's a minor problem and overall this is a very good product.

      by fromGood hydration pack I purchased two of these, one for me and one for my wife. The pack itself is great and doesn't move when running. It also has a handy storage pocket for keys, ID, cash etc. I prefer using this for races as opposed to my small Camelback as it doesn't cover my back and hold heat in like the Camelback. I'm taking off one star for the water bottle that is included. Both of the ones I purchased will drip from the spout from time to time, slowly leaking water. It doesn't leak around the lid at all just at the spout. Some times it doesn't leak at all. I've tried making sure the spout is closed as tightly as possible but it still drips from time to time. I would still recommend the pack to others, the amount of water that dripped out on me during a recent 5k could have been more than a few milliliters and was barely noticeable.
