I use a hydration pack for runs longer than 2 hours, preferring the Nathan HPL #020 for its capacity and comfort. I also use more than one pack, so that I can swap them at aid stations without having to get in and out of the pack or bladder. Osprey’s quick disconnect reservoir makes multiple packs unnecessary, and there’s a whole lot more about the new REV 1.5 to talk about.
I was told the new REV series trail running hydration packs from Osprey “fit like a shirt”, moving with your torso as you run. Osprey has long been an innovator in pack suspension systems, and I was eager to put the claim to the test. The REV is Osprey’s first backpack designed for trail running.
Key features include:
- A 1.5 liter reservoir
- A magnetic bite valve keeper
- Digiflip” media pocket provides weather-resistant access to your smart phone
