The PERFECT pack for trail running adventures. You will forget you are wearing it until you need it.


  • Woman-specific fit
  • ZERO bounce
  • Flask holder


  • Back pockets not really accessible while running
  • Lack of large item storage up front (fixed with add on pouches)

This pack rides BEAUTIFULLY!!! ZERO bounce (when set up correctly by removing all air from bladder prior to putting inside pack). It can hold up to 2L of water, but I rarely need that much so I am typically filling it with 1 to 1.5L, but I like having the option to fill if I need more.

I have worn it on ALL of my multi-hour trail runs (including marathons and 50K's) and it has NEVER let me down. I LOVE the gel flask pocket as it fits my hammer flask perfectly.

My only complaint is that the back pockets are not really accessible while running unless you are a contortionist. However, I rarely put anything in them that I need ready access to anyway (like gloves or hat that I have taken off due to it being too warm).

One other thing, which I cannot really fault the pack for, is that I like taking my phone with me on my runs (both for safety and for access to the camera). This pack with its minimal front pocketing does not really have a place large enough to hold my phone so I actually bought a couple of add on pouches (one by Timbuk2 and the other by Amphipod) and added them to the strap below my arms. They don't get in the way at all and it adds more ready access storage.

I absolutely LOVE this pack and highly recommend it.
