A versatile vest for bikers, speed hikers, and ultra-runners.
Whether you're running a multi-day ultra or putting in a 50-mile mountain-bike day, rely on the UltrAspire Titan Hydration Vest to keep you well-hydrated and fueled. A large main compartment holds your spare tubes, rain gear, multitool, and other mountain biking essentials or running layers, while a separate compartment holds the 2L water reservoir and multiple chest pockets house your salt tabs or energy goo. There's a sleeve to hold your bike pump, straps for trekking poles or an ice axe, and two small bottle holsters or stash pockets on the shoulder straps. Small details matter, too, like the reflective design, safety whistle, elastic sternum strap, and compression strap that cinches down your load for stable, bounce-free carrying.

Love this Pack!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I purchased this item to have a hydration pack that I felt I could use for everything...and I have not been disappointed! I use it for hiking, running, long days on multi-pitch climbs, and cycling to the crag. As long as my climbing partner has the rope and draws I have no problem fitting my harness and shoes with room to spare in the pack. Occasionally i use it for all day suffer fests on the bike if i'm not sure what the weather is going to have in store for me and I need to carry some warmer gear. I love the fact that the straps that go across my chest expand with my lungs when i'm really sucking air. Other packs I've had i have loosen when i'm going up hill and then re-tighten them on the descent. My only issue with the pack is it does seem to get a little bouncy on the decent if I'm running. That being said I did not purchase this pack for stickily running, otherwise i would have gone with something else. Also worth noting I've taken this pack with me on some 20-30 mile runs through Zions and the bouncing was not enough to really bother me, but it was noticeable. So if your looking for a Hydration pack that can do everything with plenty of room for storage yet not feel bulky, this is the pack for you.
Running in Black Forest. Aviemore.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I would prefer it for fast hiking and sky running distances.
Roomy and well-built, but bouncy
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I tested the Titan 2.0 as a pack to use for all-day solo unsupported backcountry runs in the Spring and Fall, when the cold and potential for inclement weather mean I need to bring some extra layers. The Titan 2.0 was plenty roomy enough to hold everything I wanted to bring with ease and had plenty of pockets to organize everything and reach it on the fly without having to take off the pack or even stop moving. Plenty of space for an all-day outing plus emergency gear if it turns into an overnighter. The tough-but-lightweight construction kept if feeling breathable and relatively barely-there even under a full load.
I was less happy with the pack's stability and carry when running downhill with a full load. The bladder and load tended to sit in the lower/middle part of my back and there wasn't any packing or strapping configuration I could find to keep the load up high where I like it when I'm running fast. Plus, the sternum straps required frequent tightening when I was running downhill. I think all the bouncing kept working them loose. The final nail in this bag's coffin for me was that the top pouch kept on flopping around as I ran and I wasn't able to tighten it down to keep it from doing so. The bouncing around of that top pouch exacerbated the overall stability issues I had with the pack.
Now, I am probably the shortest, dwarfiest, highest-BMI long distance runner I know and this may have something to do with the fit issues I was having. Since this is a one-size pack, somebody taller and elfier may stretch the pack out more vertically and have an easier time getting the pack to sit highervand bounce less. Plenty of other reviewers seem to have had no problem keeping the pack from bouncing.
As it was, the loaded pack was too floppy and bouncy to be a comfortable running pack and not rigid enough to be a comfortable all-day day hiking pack. But this might be more of a body fit issue, so I recommend giving this pack a try.
I ultimately chose the UltrAspire Omega which was, slightly smaller but was much more stable when running.
