Rated 5 out of 5áby Malamutelover Great for hiking
I take a lot of long walks with my dog and this is a great way to be hands-free and stay hydrated. Easy to wear and easy to use. Good capacity and not too heavy. For the summer I am putting ice cubes in with the water. I like the extra compartments. I can even pour off water for my dog. Highly recommended, no complaints at all.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Birdie1219 Too small
This backpack was too small, pockets could not hold much. Also, the straps did not sit correctly on my shoulders and cross strap sat on top of my breast. The price was great but I had to return it and look for a larger size.

Rated 5 out of 5áby jte521 Perfect for running, too!
This pack was made for cycling, but I bought it for distance running and it works great! After a few adjustments during my first run I got it to fit perfectly. It doesn't bounce around or chafe and the extra weight didn't bother me. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5áby jasrun262 love it but not for single digit temps
I am a runner and need something to help hydrate me on long runs...I have tried old packs of my husband but they bounce around too much on my back and straps at shoulders bothered me forcing me to carry water bottles which in cold weather makes hands exposed and cold. I got this one as was a women's fit and I liked the extra storage pocket big enough for cell phone since long runs take me far from home. I wore it and loved the fit. The only "negative" which is my doing, is that is was only 9 degrees out and I forgot to blow the water back out of the line after taking a sip at home to test nozzle. By mile 2.5 the line was frozen. My bad

Rated 5 out of 5áby AnnMS Comfortable and Handy
I bought this back at the end of December 2014. I've used it this winter for cross-country skiing, and its worked great. It holds enough (for me) for around 2 hours of skiing (with a break at the car or county park building eating area for hot chocolate). The storage is great. Just today, I put in:
-A thin, mini cutting board
-Larger Swiss Army Knife
-Zip-lock bag with a hunk of cheese and sausage
-Zip-lock bag with crackers and a paper towel
-Thin package of tissues
-In the expandable pocket, an extra pair of mittens
The straps are easy to adjust; I like how you adjust the bottom of the straps by pulling out.
I'm still learning to fill the reservoir without making a mess.
Just a note, the Aurora I ordered did not come with the Quick Link system; I had to order a conversion kit (easy to install).

Rated 5 out of 5áby SupeRoast Lightweight Pack for Day Trips
Picked this up for my wife for our long days of biking, canoeing, hiking, skiing, etc etc. lightweight and easy to clean, 2L capacity is plenty of Hydration-2-O for day tripping for 1-2 people if you don't mind sharing. Might have to get myself one!

I bought it for my daughter, she loves it. Wore it for a whole day and drank about a gallon of water. She can't wait to take it on a bike ride. Has pockets for small items like a cellphone etc. good quality.

Rated 5 out of 5áby WhiteRaven01 Lightweight, Comfy, & Cool
This pack fits my petite figure well with easily adjustable straps, is very lightweight yet holds numerous items, and keeps fluid quite cool for long periods of time (i.e. still pleasant to drink after being in a hot car for 4hrs). I like the two pockets - the top one is just big enough to hold my checkbook and phone and the bottom one is wide enough to hold my wallet, bike tool and a small bottle of sunscreen with room to spare. There is an expandable mid portion that I was actually able to cram a light shirt into between the bottom pocket and the main body with a full reservoir inside. Overall really enjoyable for short (~5mi) hikes and bike rides, will be testing on longer hikes soon. My partner doesn't like the plastic-y taste from the reservoir, but I don't notice it as much and having easy access to water means I actually stay hydrated!
