NATHAN HPL 020 HYDRATION PACK :: You can trust that any product that passes Nathan Human Propulsion Laboratories (HPL) is one tough customer. In this case, the HPL 020 Hydration Pack, which is so lightweight that it more like a vest, is designed for only the toughest of runners. It holds 2 liters of water and has a filter compatible, screw top for your more remote runs. Stash essentials in the two zippered rear compartments and zippered front pocket. Twin front holsters hold nutrition or navigation devices.
I was at first reticent to buy this product being a 15 year user of Camelback. I work for a Law Enforcement agency that does a lot of rural, long distance outdoor work. I have used and worn out many camelbacks and one Blackhawk hydration platform.
For recreational running I have used a running camelback flashflow for several years. I grew tired of having to constantly adjust it on my waist after my last marathon. I was shopping for a back pack hydration platform. THIS IS THE BEST FOR RUNNING it does not slide around, it has enough water for my long runs and it is infinity adjustable. There is enough storage for gels, cell phone and other essentials, I can even lash a fleece vest to the shock cord back.
I will still use camelback for law enforcement work, long distance hiking, backpacking and hunting, but this is the new gold standard for running.asics gel kayano 18

Comments about Nathan HPL 020 Backpack Hydration:
I am a marathon runner, and the routes I currently run have no water stops, so I purcahsed this pack as a way to carry water, and gels, and whatever else I need, and go hands free. I found that this pack is great, it stays put, and I forget that it is there. I prefer this to carrying hand held bottles (I have done lots of both). The adjustments make it so that I can make it snug with light clothes or with layers in winter. It is highly reflective, a bonus for early morning or evening runs. Definitely pleased with this purchase, but then again all the Nathan products I have purchased have delivered.Comments about Nathan HPL 020 Backpack Hydration:
I know better than to ever use any gear during a race without testing it out first, but I admit I didn't test this out before using it in the Baltimore Marathon. It was absolutely AWESOME! It turned out to be a cold, windy day so I pulled the reservoir for fluid out just used it as a backpack. I carried a windbreaker, keys, cell phone, garmin (for car), GU, GU Chomps, tissues, feminine hygiene products, snacks for after the race, etc in this pack. I barely noticed it was on my back. SO incredibly lightweight, no bouncing around, no straps cutting into my shoulders, etc.asics women shoes What an awesome piece fo gear! Love it! HIGHLY recommend!!Comments about Nathan HPL 020 Backpack Hydration: Took it out for a 17 mile run on a summer day. I had been running with a hydration belt and found this to be lighter and easier to use on a run even though it holds twice what my belt used to hold.
