Waist and chest straps are just too shortReviewed by djLeeJ from Arizona on Wednesday, April 18, 2018Just got this. It appears, as most of the Platypus line, to be very well made. Unfortunately the chest strap just barely fits across my chest and the waist is at it's extreme length with only a T-shirt on. Wearing anything heavier it simply wouldn't work. I'm a man, 5'8" 157 lbs with a 42" chest and 32" waist. Just had to return it and look for something else.
leaks water through mouth pieceVerified Buyer Reviewed by Lee the mountain biker from Utah on Friday, April 7, 2017when the water Reservoir is filled i can not get my bike tools, spare tire air pump in the bag. there is no room for a 2nd layer even a long underwear top. the magnet on the water tube is to week and falls off.
its okVerified Buyer Reviewed by advrider from TN on Sunday, July 3, 2016overall this is a well made product. I like the sliding chest strap, the magnet on the hose works really well.
The waist strap is MUCH too short, but it is easy to hide inside the pack.
does the jobVerified Buyer Reviewed by sarah from maryland on Wednesday, June 22, 2016great, 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
Great features, but didn't fit meVerified Buyer Reviewed by Dirk of the Outdoors from Texas on Tuesday, March 29, 2016I received the bag and upon initial inspection I was impressed with the build quality and features of this bag. Unfortunately when I tried it on I quickly realized that this bag did not fit me. I'm 6'2" and 235# and the waist strap was not long enough to go around my waist (size 36). Also the strap was not removeable, so unfortunately I had to return the item. Great pack, but it just wasn't for me.
Awesome!Verified Buyer Reviewed by MJ from Seward, AK on Monday, July 28, 2014I have taken this pack on a 5 hour hike and a 60 mile bike ride. It holds the water tight and is very stable on my back. Next step is to take it out on a run. I'm loving it.
great small bagVerified Buyer Reviewed by Annb from COLORADO on Friday, July 25, 2014Just got this bag. Love the bladder, but love the bag more. There are so many pockets and pouches, I can get everting in for a long bike ride.
4 thumbs up!!
Well made -- I like it!Verified Buyer Reviewed by Eva from Arizona on Tuesday, July 15, 2014I'm storing water in the sidecar of my motorcycle (an all electric Zero S). The water acts as ballast, and if I run out of electrons in the desert, I won't die of thirst while awaiting rescue. I got this pack as one of several water storage containers for this task. The valve works great and the pack is comfy and easy to carry if I have to walk away from the bike. Of course around here in Tucson, everyone carries water in their vehicle in case they get stuck.
Safety tip: If you are stranded in the desert, stay with your vehicle if at all possible. If you must leave, walk at night, and carry as much water as you can.
Best hydration pack I've usedReviewed by Rod Wiggler from WNC on Friday, May 30, 2014Very comfortable and light weight pack that carries everything I need for a long day on the trail. The bladder system is the best - extremely easy to disconnect the tube from the valve on the bladder for a quick fill without having to remove the hose where it's routed on the straps. It rides securely regardless of the amount of water or gear and seems well ventilated - generally don't even notice it. The fully enclosed gear section has a mesh pocket on the flap, 2 small pouches for a multi-tool or tube and a pump tube - well organized and enough space for me to carry slightly more than the essentials for long rides in warm weather. The outer mesh pocket is large enough to carry a light-weight cycling jacket. It's much more comfortable than either my Osprey Raptor 14 (nice for winter or marathon expeditions but otherwise too large) or my Camelbak Lobo (not enough water or gear for longer rides). Wish STP carried the dark grey version, but the gold may help get spotted if I'm ever lost in the woods.
