Pros Magnetic hose clip, easy fit adjustmentComfortable, great fit, tons of easily reachable pockets, very versatileComfortable, lots of storage, great pocketsTons of storage, comfortable, expandableExcellent hydration system, great storage and pockets
Cons Heavy, pockets, reservoir, bouncyExpensive, must buy hydration bladder separatelyNo trekking pole attachment, expensiveBulkyItchy material, tight fit
Bottom Line An affordable running pack that has the necessary basics to get you out on the trailA comfortable fit and exceptional pockets make this model our favorite pack on the marketNo matter what the mission entails, the large, comfortable VaporHowe has you coveredLightweight enough to use on an afternoon run and expandable enough for ultralight fastpacking missionsOur favorite hydration system with tons of storage, but lacking in comfort
