    great, wish it was easier to open and close to add water.. its a little difficult if youre trying to do it in a hurry or while walking. i took the bag to a music festival and it was a bit of a pain at the water filling stations. the pack itself is very tight and adjustable w/ movable chest strap. and you can fit quite a bit without it being bulky or heavy. i love the stretch pocket for shoving things you often need in. i also loved that the inside pocket for a camera or money was zipped. the valve was okay, my mouth was sore after 4 days due to how hard you have to bite down. camelbak's bite valve doesn't seem so difficult. maybe this is to prevent leaks, however usually if im doing something with a hydration pack on, i dont notice tiny drops out of the valve. camelback also has an easier opening as well as easier to hang to dry in my opinion... However, i like the design and streamline look. i also love the shape and how the weight is higher on the back, you can hardly feel it when its full as well as packed with cameras, phones, and food. i have lower back issues and my back didnt hurt AT ALL after walking around all day with this thing full. generally that is not the case. happy customer

    This is a great bottle that can easily fit into almost any pocket. The reviews about needing to use 2 hands when drinking from it are slightly misleading. I find that if you put mouth over the opening and suck you can use one hand to drink from it.

    Haven't used it yet but as long as it doesn't leak it will be great to travel with.
