Love it. My first time out with it I took it for a 13 mile jog. At first it was bouncing around a lot, but then I figured out how to work the compression straps. After that it was a smooth jog.

The water bottle pockets are small so you can forget about taking two standard sized Nalgene bottles. At first this bothered me, but I think 2 litters would be too much sloshing around for jogging. I'm using two 500ml disposable water bottles but have read that the 16 oz Nalgenes fit nicely.
