I bought these mostly for the price - fantastic for my husband and I to bike with. I actually used it the other day to hold keys and a cell phone and didn't use the hydration feature. The bladder is another reason I purchased it - the opening is large enough for my husband to get his hand in (for cleaning). I really like the two strap feature so it doesn't slip around during climbs or heavy rides.
Used this hiking, running, and cycling and it works as expected. Does not dig into shoulders and the weight is distributed nicely. The loops to hold the hose are a little difficult to work on the run so I'm knocking 1 star off for that.
Great pack but it's extremely plain. It doesn't have any extra storage like side or strap pockets. It would also be nice if there was a chest strap as when the water bag is full, it's quite heavy! Like I said, it's successful in its designated function but I could of got a better bag for the price.
