Reviewed in the United States on January 2, 2020
This hydration pack was purchased to replace an identical unit that I retired after 18 long hard months of 60-70 miles run per week in anything from negative windchill, ice, snow, rain, thunderstorms and the opposite end past 100-degree heat waves. You will notice that I have made some modifications, those are not shortcomings of the hydration pack, it's things I have learned along the way, like adding the extra reflectors, the blinking LED lights, etc. The cell phone holster is a brand new addition, so far it works great and it means not having to take the pack down just to grab my phone (and it means not carrying the weight of my phone on my jacket, pants or a Flip belt). Also notice that I have taped all of the loose straps, it's something I learned back in my US Army days.

I usually fill the bladder to full capacity, and I carry a slim wallet and keys on one of the waist pockets, energy gels on the other waist pocket. The bladder did not have the usual nasty chemical smell/taste, but I still followed their advice and washed it with mild soap, so far I can't taste anything. So far I have put about 60 miles into it, 11-12 miles per run with zero discomfort. I also carry some basic first aid stuff and spare headphones and headlamp.

What I don't like about it: I wish I could move the straps so the pack sits lower on my back, but it's not a deal breaker, and at this price point I am not really worried about it.

Would I buy another one? Absolutely.

If you are curious:

Cell phone holster: https://amzn.to/2QFTa2V
Blinking LED lights: https://amzn.to/2Qy82QQ

Update: 6/14/2020 The bladder developed a leak, I contacted Mubasel directly thru Amazon and they immediately sent me a replacement BAG and bladder, instead of just the replacement bladder. Outstanding customer support.
