Very comfortable. Bottle holder handles several different size bottles. BUT, the only way an S5 Iphone fits the compartment is if you take the protective covering off of the phone and wedge it in, thus putting a lot of strain on the zipper. You can put several other small items in around the wedged phone. The little elastic mesh pocket is all but useless.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RunsWithStuff Fine for shorter runs
I had hoped this pack would replace my current water bottle waist pack with an ample side compartment, which is getting quite old. The compartment on the LL Bean model is certainly larger than most, but doesn't easily hold my cellphone and the other junk I need on longer training runs. If you want a pack to hold just some GUs and other small items, this will fit your needs.
I would recommend with that caveat.

Exactly what I was looking for in design plus high quality materials. The yellow color ( I forget exactly what it was called) is actually the popular neon yellow which is great for visibility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Discgolfnut Great solution to hands free walking/hiking
I frequently walk or hike and was looking for a comfortable belt type water carrier just so I could keep my hands free. I researched the product on the LL Bean website and found the Multisport Hydration Pack. It is very comfortable. I decided to ditch the included water bottle and use a standard .5 Liter bottled water for my purposes. The storage pouch is convenient for keys and an iphone 5 size or smaller. I doubt that larger cell phones would fit in it.

This works excellent for my long walks. The only problem is the pocket is a little small, I hardly can put my phone but there is nos space for my keys.

I love it! I had the 2 water bottle holder which I used for the Chicago Marathon last year, but the 2 bottles were too heavy and not necessary with frequent water stops. This single one is great for walks, jogs, hikes and bike rides.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SeniorHikerSkier Good Product- wrong color
I like the size of the bottle and the storage pocket and the slant. But I was looking for a different Blue. The color was too aqua-like. I guess that what the "ocean" is... I was looking for more like "denim blue". My error

Rated 5 out of 5 by displacedAlaskan Great pack for a short day hike.
I bought two of these, one in the light blue and one in the hi-vis yellow. The yellow is definitely hi-vis. They feel very comfortable on and the water bottle is a perfect size for a shorter day hike. The compartment is plenty big to hold granola bars, trail mix, etc. The striped color on the bag portion is actually lifted so you can attach a carabiner to hook your jacket on or whatnot.
The only negative, per my husband because he is a lefty, is that there isn't an option to have the water bottle slanted to the left instead. However, the bottle easily slips back in so it wasn't really an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by onthetrail padded hipbelt water carrier
Very pleased w/ this item as I'm using it for jogging & i wanted something as minimalist as possible while still be large enough to carry a sufficient amount of water. Initially was going to get the lime green color but chose the one w/ the hi-vis yellow color to help me been seen by vehicles. Nice small, zippered pouch was an attribute I liked as well because I can carry an small cell phone, keys, and an emergency contact card in case I fall ill or am injured while jogging. Belt is nice and pliable as opposed to being inflexible. This is an important feature to me because it allows for a full range of motion w/o binding up or chafing. Materials seem to be built to last on the product as well. Well thought out product IMO.
