    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Good bag
    Easy to put together (waterbag in bag, screwcap through bag etc.)
    Easy to clean
    Well adjustable
    Seems like it will survive a few marathons

    Cons:

    I expected the fabric to be somewhat water-repellant, but instead it get's wet as soon as water hits it.
    Same goes for the fabric around the waterpipe, it is drenched after 2 drops.
    The bag looks totally different than on the pictures! The camouflage patern has MUCH more greens and dark browns, and the binders and hooks are all beige/copper.
    The cap for the mouthpiece is NOT attached to the drinking line with a strap, mine came with a totally different (rubber) cap on the mouthpiece
    -No biggie tho, I'll drill a hole in it, tie it, done)
    And Finally: I payed 21 dollars for this??? yet the packaging said "value 7.16 USD", someone explain this.....

    OtherThoughts:

    All in all, it serves it's purpose;
    It doesn't leek
    It's comfy on the back and it keeps more than enough water for my hikes. (ran 7,5 miles as soon as I got it for testing)
    The extra "storage" pouch is not worth putting anything in since it's small and flat, unless it's paper/magazines a.o.

    Bottomline:

    Just buy it if you need a water bag
