Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Teton Sports Trail runner hydration backpack makes a robust backpack when you want to run long haul marathons. Teton water bladders can fit into almost any of their backpacks, subject to size. So you have the option to regulate your water intake and weight. That kind of versatility lands it a spot in our best hydration packs list.
Stands out for the user-friendly, minimalist design that's lightweight and easy to adjust to provide an excellent fit for most users.
This hydration pack is great and one of the lightest units I’ve used. It works great for cyclists, camping, hiking, or long distance running. I like the simplicity of the bag and the wide-ranging features. Overall, this bag is great.

What reviewers didn't like

Some customers reported leakage and water flow issues
Some leaks have been reported. Lacks space and lots of pockets.
The rear mesh pocket has elastic compression straps which have been acceptable at keeping things inside, but I don’t feel it is 100% secure so I avoid putting anything of value in there. A better option would have been Velcro or snaps. A more reliable system would make me more comfortable about using it for the keys or my phone. A minor issue relates to the need to fully remove the bladder from the pack before being in a position to refill. I believe a better design could have been achieved which would leave the bladder in place throughout the refill process.
