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 4 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. This pack is all you need when you don't need much. I like to run with a car key, cell phone and some cash/card. For anything long enough to need more stuff, I carry a different pack. The Mirage is wonderfully expandable and will hold odd shaped items and much larger things than you might imagine. It weighs nearly nothing and dries out very quickly. It has a built-in… 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

Mountainsmith Day

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Super solid design, with plenty of space for my frisbee, books, and bike tools. I added the extra padded waist belt to make it more stable and comfortable, which I highly recommend. I've had mine for years — totally bombproof design, and a great warranty, just in case! I bought this bigger bag so I could fit a frisbee, which it does comfortably. They have only continued to improve on the design over the years. Full review

Salomon Active Insulated Belt

rated 4 of 5 stars A great hydration option for a light trip in the backcountry. The Salomon Active Insulated Belt is my go-to for hydration on short winter excursions. I bought it for nordic  skiing, but have found that I also use it backcountry skiing and snowshoeing. I love having a belt in the winter, as opposed to a small pack, as it keeps my shoulders free from fatigue. They become tired enough from poling as it is. It was a new purchase for me this winter season, and I am looking forward to giving it a try… Full review

Mountainsmith Tour

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Perfect for day hikes. Great size. I was debating between this and the larger Day model. I am glad I went with the Tour. It can store plenty of gear for day hikes and is still compact enough. Everything I was looking for. I place the shoulder strap pad on my neck and wrap the strap around the front of my shoulders, kind of like a backpack. With it just barely snugged it takes some weight off the hips with heavy loads.  Full review
