Closeouts. The Velobak Hydration shirt from CamelBak is a great workout companion with its quick-drying, moisture-wicking compression fabric and an integrated HydroPouch reservoir compartment with an OMEGA HydroTanium reservoir included.

I returned this because I wanted it for running and there was too much movement to be comfortable during that activity. If I were a biker, I think I would love it and it's probably great for hiking, but I have a CamelBak backback that I use for that. Great idea and I wish it would have worked for running!

I have a lean build and typically wear a small and occasionally a medium shirt. I ordered the medium after reading other reviews saying that it ran small. The medium was snug, so I returned it for the large!!! Beware, if you are typically a medium or a large in other shirts, you may have trouble with this fit. I haven't used it yet, but I'm anxious to try it for long runs, biking, and kayaking. It's a great idea, I sure hope it works!

I bought this in a large and I'm usually a very solid medium. Even the large is very tight. I will be keeping it however because I got it for cheaper than I could get a bladder for and I love the size/shape of this bladder as it will fit in my running pack. I wanted to be able to layer this shirt/bladder with my pack to carry more water so I think I will be cutting the shirt and adding some ties to just use it as a "shirt style pack". If you wanted to fill the shirt/bladder mid-race or workout it would be challenging/annoying to do it alone. Great idea just needs to more thought out.

I used this product during a mountain bike weekend. It works very well!
Because it has no straps, there is no chafing on your (under)arms. The water (container) does not move around as much and there is less pull/weight on the shoulders (compared to conventional packs). The 2 zippers (1 down-up and 1 up-down) are very practical (putting it on + wearing).
It is a bit tight around the chest though and it would be nice if it could hold a little more water.
Best Uses: Cycling, Hiking, Running
Cons: Tight around chest
Describe Yourself: Avid Athlete
