Rated 4 out of 5 by Rcurz from Yays and knots I have used my dart where I live in the tropics of far North Australia for around 2 years for my longer runs. Yups - could not imagine a more comfortable way to carry 1+ litre of water. The mesh on the shoulder straps could be a little less rough for singlet wearers. Good storage for flat items. Nups and improvements - I have had to tie knots in the webbing ( chest and shoulders) to stop it working lose, I believe this is a common complaint on the Ultra vest? The outer material is not stretchy, limiting storage. A mesh outer pocket would be great for a cap or lightweight jacket. Another small pocket front right strap would also be handy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Projecttoyota from Best i’ve had ! I’ve had an assortment of Camel Bak products and packs for running and cycling, and this one is by far my favorite so far! Light weight, extremely comfortable, stays in place 100%, the reservoir is easily removable for fill up, and the tubing easily comes around the shoulder, no need for the hassle of feeding it through an opening in the pack. The compartments are also a decent size and easily accessable. Would recommend this pack!

Rated 4 out of 5 by seaturle from Octane Dart for running I like the product except for the nasty plastic chemical taste when drinking thru the tube. Is this BPA free, does it go away?????

Rated 5 out of 5 by RogerG from Perfect for marathon training I use this hydration back pack for my long training runs. It is the perfect size for marathon training. It is very light weight even when full of water. The water hose stays out of the way with the easy clip on the front strap. On the left front strap there is a pocket for my gels, and a zippered pocket in the back for my keys and miscellaneous. ...the perfect product for long distance training sessions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NinaS from A fantastic purchase! I bought this pack almost two months ago and I am so glad that I did. It is so comfortable! The straps easily adjust and tighten down and it is so easy to access the water tube and place it back in the holder. It is lightweight and yet I was surprised by how many storage compartments it has. I do sweat heavily on my back with the pack on due to the padded fabric but I'm running in 80-90 degree weather. When the bladder is completely full I get a chafe mark where the bottom of the pack rubs my back. Small price to pay! I have several packs and this is the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bryantmj from Great for running! I’m marathon training right now and needed a pack that was going to be able to hold more than just water. So many little pockets for things like keys, energy snacks, etc. It’s small and has lots of adjustable areas to make it fit your body exactly. So glad I made the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GER1 from Comfortable and light I bought the Dart for long training runs in preparation for a 50 mile ultramarathon. After sevral uses I am very happy with the comfort.There is very little bounce aven with a phone in the pack. I like that the height of the chest strap slides to any position, and not just a few positions as with some other packs. The quality seems great. A few minor changes would make this perfect. First, I would like a pocket on the right sholuder strap (like the left side). Second, I would reverse the orientation of the side straps. As is, sometimes I feel the buckle rub on my arm. Attaching the buckle to the pack instead of the front straps would eliminate this problem. Third, use a water resevoir that can be filled without removing it from the pack. If you don't plan on wearing this during races, the current resevior is fine (and the big opening makes it easy to clean). Overall, this is a great pack for running.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Catie from Good minimalist pack! I've had my Dart since 2013 and it's probably saved my life a time or two. I'm a trail runner and marathoner and the 1.5L bladder holds enough water for when your run gets unexpectedly long. The straps get loose, but if you knot them, the pack stays in place. My only complaint is that the front pocket is too small for a smartphone and that the whole pack chafes. The material on the back is *very* rough and I've had pretty bad scrapes on my mid to lower back after 15-20 mile training runs.
