Amphipod PURErun Trail Stainless 16oz

rated 4 of 5 stars A great running pack with space for a snack and a bottle. Also has space for a shirt removal. I was able to fit a full size men's bi-fold wallet into the pocket, although it is not really designed for that much. Pack is very comfortable, sits surprisingly well during constant activity. This is a good pack that is comfortable to wear even during the most intense activities. I wore it for work during 95-degree weather, stacking heavy objects and furniture onto pallets in the direct sunlight for three… Full review

GoMotion Orion

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Perfect companion to early morning runs! Disclosure: The author of this review is a brand ambassador for GoMotion. I have had the opportunity to use the Orion light belt for about 6 months now and I am super impressed with its performance. I run primarily in the early morning hours—and I like to be seen while crossing roads! I normally run with at least one doggie running companion, so I feel an extra responsibility to make sure we are all safe and visible.  The light has three brightness settings… Full review

Fuel Belt Crush

rated 4 of 5 stars Good hip solution to carry water. I picked this up to use for trail running. It is lightweight and fits well. It has a nice closure that doesn't use a buckle. I like that it can use a variety of bottles. The pockets are small and can't hold a phone well. It does hold pocket size nutrition snacks, but not much more. On a trail run the bottle stayed secured and didn't bounce either full or half full. If you looking for a good hip based solution I'd give it a thumbs-up. It would be higher if it had… Full review

Inov-8 Race Pro 4

rated 5 of 5 stars My go-to short distance, sub 2 hour, trail runner pack. This has been a great purchase. I have a variety of running packs I use dependent on where and how long I intend to run. This pack is great for sub 2 hour runs.  The fit is superb. It cinches tight and does not jiggle nor loosen during my runs. It is very comfortable to wear. The capacity is as advertised. Internally the bag fits my first aid kit, spare socks, tissues, and waterproof jacket.  The external bungee straps I put my ultralight… Full review

Mountainsmith Kinetic II

rated 4.5 of 5 stars My go-to hip pack. Napolean Dynamite would be proud. For bumming around outside of town, I love this pack. Big enough to hold snacks, camera, and drinks. It's comfortable, easy to work with and holds up. Overall it's great. Fit: Snug and ergonomic Comfort: Padded, good Capacity: Just enough for what you need for a day Organization and accessibility: I wish the drink pockets were just a tad deeper so it could hold store bought water bottles a bit more secure. If I transfer my drinks into the classic… Full review

Nathan Mirage Pak

rated 3 of 5 stars This pack is perfect for the minimalist at heart, but beware of bounce with a smartphone. I'd buy it again even with its shortcomings. UPDATE 7/9/15: Taped seams have separated all over the pack. My local running store replaced the first one for free and the 2nd one has just completely fallen apart as well. I spoke with Nathan Hydration and they have offered to send a replacement free of charge. GREAT customer service...this pack...we'll see. UPDATE 7/9/15: Taped seams have separated all over the… Full review

Mountainsmith Tour TLS

rated 5 of 5 stars Some people might think a fanny pack will make you look like a nerd. But its durability and comfort make the Mountainsmith Tour TLS pack a great choice for day hikes, cross country skiing, and using as a man-purse (or lady purse) around town. Fit: This fanny lumbar pack will fit most adults. The heavier you are, the less coverage you'll get from the light padding on the hipbelt. I have a 32 inch waist, and I might get nervous if I was skinnier than a 30 inch waist. Mountainsmith says it will work… Full review

Salomon XT Twin Belt

rated 2.5 of 5 stars in my opinion, this pack is more suitable for hiking than running. The first time I ran with the Salomon XT Twin belt on I had to alter my arm swing because my elbows kept hitting off the pack due to the bottles being placed on an angle. I am not sure if my short stature (I am 5'4") and small hip width had anything to do with it. My fiancé tried it on and didn't experience the same problem, so I would imagine the design of the pack is geared toward men. I even think I could get used to the sloshing… Full review

Mountainsmith Day TLS

rated 4 of 5 stars My top choice day pack. This is my go-to pack unless I need to bring extra clothing. It is the largest MS fanny pack I believe and can hold rain gear, lunch, and two quart size water bottles. The elastic will hold a shedded jacket or sweatshirt on the outside.  Useful interior and outside pockets.  More comfortable to wear with the optional Strapettes, but still very little weight on shoulders. I am 6'4" and the strapettes will hit their stops if I relax them and then you have to take the pack… Full review
