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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Klimberkat Return of the fanny pack!
I got this to hold water, keys and my iPhone when I go running, and it seems to be doing it's job. The water bottle isn't the easiest thing to get in and out while moving, but I usually welcome a 5 sec break for water.
I found it very useful when doing yard work and mowing the lawn in the hot weather.
I am petite, and it may look silly on me since when running I have to tighten it on my natural waist or it bounces around if I try to keep it low on the hips...but that's fine, I'm not trying to impress my neighbors or my dog.
All in all, it does what I wanted it to, I love the shade of blue, and I look forward to many, many uses.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LookingForGoodDeals Too Bulky
I was excited to get this pack since I need it to carry my keys, iphone, and water bottle when I jog with my dog. I was disappointed because this pack is so bulky and big. I have a petite frame so it's not very flattering on me. I returned it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BiggieLow OK but not for trail running
This is a sturdy, minimalist hydration pack that is a great for walkers and fair-climate hikers. It suffers from 2 flaws: first, it is very difficult to remove and replace the water bottle from its pouch while moving...and so I can't recommend this product to trail runners. Secondly, the insulated water bottle pouch has a gimmicky cut-away (as seen in the pic), which looks great, but I'd prefer the extra insulation to keep the bottle's contents cold (or unfrozen)...depending on the season. If you need a simple pack for hiking and don't mind fiddling with the bottle to drink, this is a decent value. Runners should probably look elsewhere.
