Comments: This pack is great and so was the customer service/shipping. I ordered the S/M pack on a Wednesday, took it out for a quick mile and realized it just didn't fit right (I'm 5'8"/160, athletic male). I immediately sent it back that day and received the M/L on Friday. It fit incredibly and is more suitable for multiple layers of clothes and therefore different running climates. I took it out for my long run in about 95 degree weather and I was thankful to have the pack. It had the perfect amount of water with just the 20oz bottles included for 12 miles on a hot day. The front pockets held my cell phone and GPS, the side pockets held IDs/cards, I was able to stash a small med kit in the front zip, and an extra button up and clean shirt for after the run in the middle zip (the whole kit only added about 6 seconds to my overall pace per mile but I'm not used to running with a pack). I took it out for a 8 mile hike the next day with similar gear. All in all, it's a lightweight pack, great for all day use (as a commuter pack), for long runs in a variety of climates, and anyone who wants to have access to enough gear while running and can't get back home immediately (the pack-rat runners among us).
