I used this during two hikes in Hawaii. Each hike provided completely different conditions and this pack was great through both events. The first was Koko Head Railway, which is 1,100 increasingly steep steps up a mountainside, in the heat with no shade. There's some need for concentration, balance, and footing for each step, so having my hands free was important, as well as staying hydrated without having to stop and drink from a bottle.
This hydration pack is not only lightweight but also greatly ventilated, most notably in the straps. I kept my keys, phone, and snacks in the strap pouch and main zippered pouch. Empty shorts pockets meant no accidental dropping of items, meaning I could push the speed a bit as well. This product is great and I can see myself using it for all activities, including running, cycling, mountain biking, and snowboarding. Great product!
The only con I experienced was that I could still taste a little bit of plastic/rubber, albeit I had only washed it with soap and warm water once after unboxing it. I expect the taste to go away after a few uses/washes.
