Nice Waist Option in a camelBACK world.

I have been a runner for 11 years, needless to say hydration and energy are always on my mind. I am currently training for my first ultra marathon (50 miles) in the back-woods of New Mexico and I have sorted through countless packs and water delivery systems until finding the Montara. It fits like a dream, but more over it feels comfortable and dare I say supportive for the lumbar. I was out running some of the roughest trails I could find as soon as I signed for it. It hung tough, straps slipped a bit, but I think user error might be a cause of that. Over-all it was great. The downside is that there is only a little over a liter of water held inside, If your going over an hour to two hours with no resupply stations that may be a problem. It does boast an expandable zippered and netted storage interior in the main pouch and a cell phone/mp3 pocket with a "coin purse" on the front. The tube is adequate for me (5'8") and I think it could be fine up to around 6'. I am glad I bought it and would suggest it to a friend.
