Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lumbar pack for running The first time I ran with the Talon 6, and without my backpack, it felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. Literally. I felt light and moved free and fast. The pack fits well, doesn't bounce, and can easily be adjusted while on the move. I did replace the water bottles with my own in order to carry an extra 4 ounces on each side. One of my concerns was that the bottles wouldn't hold tight, but the bungee cord worked great. It took a little time to acclimate myself to loosening and tightening the cord while running, but it's very easy. The other thing I really like are the large side pockets, in which I keep snacks and an energy gel flask. You can't really get to the larger pockets on the back while on the move, but I don't foresee this being an issue, as I keep my keys, phone, and a maybe a lightweight rain jacket in the back. There is ample space for the essentials. I am really looking forward to using this pack for long distance trail races and day hikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome multi use fanny pack. I've had this pack for almost a year now and can say its by far my favorite small pack for shorter day trips. Like the other reviewer, I replaced the bottles with 25oz Camelbak insulated bottles, and they fit great. This is my main pack for trail rides and downhill, and I couldn't be happier with how stable this pack is, even when bottles are completely filled or when I'm on a jump trail (or when when bottles are full on a jump trail). My only small complaint with this pack is having a small spot above my left hip that the strap digs into in certain positions ( I only notice this if I'm standing around - never while biking or hiking/running). Get it. Let your jersey flutter in the breeze. Let your back be free of sweat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Holds a lot I bought this for my son who is an expert hiker. He is thrilled with it. He sent a video showing how much he could stuff in it so he can scale Mount Gorgonio without his Osprey backpack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight pack with just enough room Wanted a lightweight pack to use for the last few miles at half dome. camp overnite and take something lightweight to the top. This worked perfectly. Enough room for snacks, small water purification system, first aid etc. Bottles way too small for long hikes but bigger bottles fit so plan on adding bigger bottles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lightweight,fits well I bought this to wear while Mountain biking - works well. very lightweight. The only odd thing is the shape of the water bottles - they are tapered, so they can't stand up but they do fit against your hips well.

Will this fit the 3L Camelbak lumbar reservoir (or something similar)?

Asked by: Trevor
This pack is not designed for carrying a hydration bladder, and we cannot guarantee a 3L lumbar reservoir will fit inside.

Are the adjustable hipbelt straps removable? I'd like to be able to swap which side the buckels are on so I can mate it to my backpack hipbelt to use as a belly pack for camera gear.

Asked by: Lauren
Yes, the waist belt straps are removable from the tri-glide buckles to reverse the direction of the side release buckle.
