Familiarity: I've used it several times
I used this for the Wasatch Back Ragnar this summer, this pack was fantastic! It's highly adjustable and doesn't bounce around a lot when you're running. But be mindful of weight, 2L of water, plus a jacket could make this bag weigh about 4-5 lbs, which can eventually feel like a lot on hard trails. This pack really came in handy when I had a 9 mile uphill leg in 90 degree heat. I was really lucky to have this pack during that leg of the Ragnar. If you're a runner, cycler, or day hiker, look no further, this is a great pack. Your search is over.
