Rated4out of5byRKolbifromGreat pack, slow flow bite valve.This is a very comfortable pack, just pushed out 11 miles with no chaffing or aggravation from it. The only down side that I experienced was a lack of sufficient water flow through the bite valve. I simply replaced the bite valve with one from my camel backs and now all is right with this product. The only product recommendation I have is perhaps a larger bladder.

Rated5out of5byjoel the runnerfrompack is awesomeThe pack is expensive, but only if you have never bought every other option that never worked for some reason. The pack fits like a glove and stays put which is hard to do on extended runs. I was using a Nathan pack and occasionally had a water bottle hand holder as well. This pack comes with a great bladder and the bite valve sits just within reach of your mouth without ever rubbing against your face. The pack fits snugly and I never felt like it was bouncing around. I was carrying a wallet, cell phone, keys, full blabber and snacks. It kind of feels like a flack jacket, but is light and airy, and again fits great. I will load it up with other gear next time to see what it can handle.
