I purchased this product after about a month and a half of research to find the perfect pack for my needs. I ran, hiked, and walked A LOT with this thing and i can safely say that it met my demands quite well and exceeded my expectations.When i first bought this pack i was afraid that it wouldnt be the best pack for running but it actually turned out to be awesome for running activities. The straps can be adjusted to ensure that it does not bounce or "slap" your back during running or any other activity. The extra storage is great for holding your food and other items if you are going to be spending the day outdoors. Its been used very heavily for a month and a half and its stitching is still in pristine condition. Nothing has frayed, snapped, ripped or separated. The MOLLE webbing that it comes with lets you attach a variety of pouches and other accesories so you can hold more items or attach reflectors etc... I would recommend this item to anyone who likes to go on 1 to 15 hour adventures and to runners who like to carry extra items with them while they run.
I gotta say this is by far the best hydration system I have ever come across. I bought it in 2007 and beat the shit out of it all over Canada, and other allies training areas. recently got back from the canadian mission in kandahar and i gotta say it went through some tough stuff and is STILL in perfect shape. It really is a cut above the rest
I agree with what everyone said plus the back of the carrier has a pocket for your water filter.The zippered side of the carrier lets you hook up your water filter to go directly into the bladder.Best set up!
I love my source hydration, but these docking stations are weak. I've gone through 2 already (they break pretty easily) and am trying to figure out if I should get the magnet clip or just use a carabiner on my rucks shoulder strap.
This is one of the greatest hydration systems that I have come across. The ease of taking down to clean and dry are phenomenal. The fact that the pack has to zippers for ease of access is unprecedented. The attachment points are a great idea. A lot of time and energy went into creating this system. The best part is that it is made in the USA. I cannot write everything that I love about this system. Thank you Source.
Keeps my water cold all day, even in 34 degrees Celsius, very comfortable and holds a lot of gear for such a small pack. The bladder system is easy to disassemble and clean, no leaks. I use mine for flyfishing and bowhunting. Brilliant product.
