never knew it could be so good

After using a black diamond hydration pack with the usual waist and chest strap, this bag was a revelation. I realized I wouldn't be happy in the black diamond for very long distances after hauling water for 6+hrs while running. Used the nathan for a 45k mountain race and I love it. It is true that the front pocket protrudes a little and I think would be annoying in a faster race. However the pockets are well thought out and designed. Also, the water bladder is far inferior to camelbak and source, but I figured it would be and like other reviewers just swapped in a superior brand. Oh! and it was so gross after the race that I had to wash it, I put the whole bag in a "delicates" mesh washing bag, put it in the machine on "hand wash" setting, and it was like new! I thought I hated carrying a pack while running, but it turns out I just had the wrong pack.

Great mittens for cold hands, most days. I feel the size runs a little small. Normally I would be a size 7, definitely a "medium" women's hand for most gloves and mittens, and I had to exchange my 7s for 8s, which are still snug (but right for not being overly bulky, I think). For the coldest days I still need something warmer.

I love the fit, I am 5'7", 145lbs(?), athletic build and the M is good, not tight but close to the body, fits low on the waist but not super low. They are incredibly soft, even softer than icebreaker. My only reservations are that I wish the elastic top was covered with fabric...it's softer than a normal elastic, still I wonder if it would be more durable over time covered. Also, the contrast stitching is cute, but makes these bottoms look more like underwear. I plan to wear these for running and hiking, they will be perfect for me for these functions, so I wish they looked a little more "outerwear".
