Stunning hydration pack, especially at Merlins price. Had a Camelback Blowfish for years but was always an off balance menace at the top of my back when the 3 litre bladder was full. Wanted something smaller for racing but still with a 3 litre bladder - and to sit lower. The pack itself is almost weightless - then loosen the straps so it sits low, right on the top of your bum, and you won't know its there, even with 3 litres on board. Not much extra storage- but enough for the essentials - the upright bladder leaves the 'hip wings' free for some stuff and a jacket will fit under the stretch cords. Seems well made and looks the business. This is one product I would unreservedly recommend.

Splendid splendid splendid.
Hill and distance runner here upgrading from Camelbak Classic to this to go higher and further.
Had it for a couple of weeks now and can't fault it. In fact I am fast becoming a terrible bore over it.
I won't bore you just get one. You will be so happy.
Great price and service from Merlin, as always,
I purchased this great Hydration pack for trail running, and its absolutely brilliant. Lightweight and with a host of adjustable straps, I was able to get a perfect fit. No movement at all when running, and no rubbing or restriction. Well recommended for those longer runs :)
Excellent product does a good job
Light weight and perfect fitting you forget your wearing it.
There's room in the small pocket for some basic tools & spares and enough room in the bladder compartment to store a pump. The side mesh pockets offer extra storage with one containing a key hook. Bladder works perfect as you'd expect from Camelbak.
Ideal pack for those two to three hour rides.
Merlin again provided a first class service with next day delivery.
bought this for an alpine mountain bike holiday, the 2 litre water capacity was enough and there was plenty of storage for the usual stuff wallet, spare tube, mini pump tyre levers multi tool chocolate bars.
the compact nature was good for riding didnt feel it swinging around at all.
i even used the bungie strings to hold a wrapped up water proof jacket and they held it in place well.
my only minor gripe was that there was no means of strapping body armour to it so that had to be carried seperately but as this is described as a runners pack
its not the equipments fault just something to consider.
overall a good piece of kit even survived 3 crashes!
Fantastic piece of kit and you won't get it anywhere else cheaper, minimalist but full of features, totally satisfied!
Spot on. Does a great job not only for cycling but also using it when I'm out jogging.
I will be using this when I run the Brighton marathon next year.
Nicely designed and comfortable.
