I expect Gregory products to be of certain quality. Alas, was a bit disappointed with the durability. Design wise what I like most is the twin bottles and the ease to assess the bottle.
- The twin bottle design
- Not durable
- The small opening to put the hydration bladder
Fit is comfortable for ladies. Weight wise is heavier than some hydration bag, given that it is a 8 litre bag with padding, but still ok.
Durability of my bag is poor. The interior laminate of the bag wears off too easily and the seam near the compression string is tearing apart. I bought it new and only used it twice for trail running, duration of 3 hours, about 1.5l water, but some parts of the interior are wearing off, the side seams are also tearing off. The opening to put the hydration bladder is a little too small to fit in my bladder.
I am only happy with the twin bottle system where i can easily assess the bottle without removing the bag, and put it back in as well by feel.
Overall, I'm disappointed with the quality, my previous Dipsea has no issue.
