Issue with waterbottles
Reviewed by Kayaker from Maryland on Monday, July 22, 2013
I bought this for hiking and wading in streams. I find it fits just fine. Right sized for me in the sense that I can put a small lunch, binoculars, and a field guide in it. I like the pocket designs as well. Has a snap for holding your keys in the small front pocket. Also has a number of straps to adjust the fit. Overall a very nice design with one glaring exception. The water bottle pockets are only 5 inches deep. So water bottles hang very loosely and may fall out. The one redeeming factor is that there is a bungee drawstring that allows tightening at the top of the water bottle pocket. In addition, there are a few loops on the pack that could be used to tie in the top of your bottle with a carabiner or something. Whoever designed those pockets at Mountainsmith needs to pay more attention. That said, the pack is roomy enough that I can carry a bottle in the pack as well.
