Editors' Choice Award
For a pack that has 12L of storage space, we are amazed at how accessible the pockets are
Top Pick Award
A comfortable fit and exceptional pockets make this among our favorite packs on the market
A great hydration pack with a simple and effective design, but the paired down design means fewer pockets and storage options
This vest has some limitations but it is a great versatile trail companion for most runners
Among the most capable packs we've tested but very difficult to insert soft flasks
Close to perfect pockets, fit, and adjustability, but this pack still misses the mark in regards to the hydration system
This vest fits large and loose, causing a lot of bouncing when running but it is a featherweight option for those looking to go fast and light
The features and awesome hydration system make this vest a joy to use
The lightest vest we've tested surprised us with three accessible pockets across the back that fit nearly everything we wanted
Complicated pockets and no included hydration system give us some reservations but there are some great features
Best Buy Award
An affordable and highly capable pack with user-friendly features
Great for distances upwards of a marathon and any running environment where visibility is key
An affordable running pack that won't break the bank or your back
