    Nathan VaporWrap Hydration Vest is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Small size too big This pack looks to be designed based on the very good Salomon S-Lab pack which I also have and really like (it's a significantly better pack that does not bounce). I bought this because it has a .5 liter larger resevior for longer unsupported runs. Unfortunately, the small size nathan pack is still just a bit big for my small (tech running shirt size) torso and it is impossible to adjust so that the resevior/bladder does not bounce around unacceptably. Also, the first time I filled the bladder and took a sip, the water had the most horrendous plastic taste. Not sure what is required, or how many rinsings/washings may be necessary to fix that. Other than that, the pack seems well made and has good storage capacity. One thing I did notice, though is that some of the pockets seem a little more crowded than I'd like which, in use, might make them hard to access. Also, I found adjusting the chest straps a little aggrivating but that was partly because the pack sized too big. It's probably a good pack for a larger person. For me, I'm still not sure whether to keep this pack and, maybe, modify it to fit better or return it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes running much easier. I bought this for trail running and for runs longer than 12 miles. It provides great peace of mind that I can carry all the water and nutrition that I need with room to spare for protective clothing, cell phone, etc. Once I put the vest on I barely know that it's there. Staying hydrated is so important for maximizing performance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a design for runners For long runs, this product is exceptional. Absolutely no movement, with no sloshing of the water, it holds temperature well in the reservoir and has easy access to storage. If you are not used to running with a vest/pack, the straps may seem bulky at first, but it is as comfortable as wearing a shirt and it does not interfere with my movement at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pack keeps water snug and goodies handy Had this out twice now for extended runs (3hrs), so I can speak about the construction/function, but not about its durability yet. Pros - very stable and able to cinch the water closer as it is emptied. Lots of good pockets for grabbing food and aids as you run. Enough room for essentials and not enough to let you over pack :) Bungees work well for poles. Lots of reflective areas. Cons - Bite valve doesn't allow much flow (I replaced it with an old camel back valve) Wash it first the thing tastes terrible and smelled like plastic even after the first wash. Very glad I got this pack and not a smaller one because it is light enough to go for medium runs and big enough for full adventures.
