CamelBak Octane Dart Hydration Pack, 50oz
- Just close the valve, and you can toss your pack anywhere without worrying about drips or leaks.
- When a handheld just isn’t enough, but an ultrarunning vest feels like overkill, the Dart is your streamlined companion.
- The Dart has been a favorite among runners for years, thanks to its simple and intuitive features: a zippered essentials pocket in the back, and a stretchy pocket on the harness for gels or bars.
- Held up great, it didn’t bother me or rub at all when running.
- You will definitely want to buy that before using it for an OCR.
- It’s small and you don’t really notice it on your back.
- And about half the price of any other hydration pack I looked at buying.
- Sternum strap holds pack snuggly in place so it doesn’t bounce around – can’t even feel the strap.
- Like the mesh shoulder straps – cooler than other types of straps.
- The two storage pockets are nice – wish they were a little larger but not at the expense of the overall size of the pack.
- This is light and sleek, and has enough room for a phone a few gels.
- You can tighten the straps to prevent jostling as you drain the bladder, but I was already near the tightest setting when the bladder was full and I have a common body type for a female runner (5’8″ 120lbs).
- I think for petite women weighing less than this, the pak will not be snug against your body.
- You do feel the warmth and hear the sloshing, but I guess that’s unavoidable.
- If you don’t rinse out the bladder right away, the water will taste like plastic the next time.
- For comparison – the Octane is much sleeker than the cumbersome Marathoner’s Vest yet still has good storage; it’s as sleek as the Charm, but w much better storage.
- My 3L day pack was just too big for my afterwork runs and minitreks.
- This lets me keep all my essentials at bay while running down the trail.
- Bladder is a tad of a pain to put in and out, but otherwise I am in love.
- This Camelbak dart is perfect for my needs as I did not want a handheld bottle.
- You have to take the whole bladder out for refill, but after a while you will get used to it.
CamelBak 2016 Dart Hydration Pack
- When a handheld just isn’t enough, but an ultra running vest feels like overkill, the Dart is your streamlined companion.
- A favorite among runners, this lightweight and compact pack is redesigned with an improved harness and more compression for a snug, breathable fit on roads or trails.
- We’ve added a stretch mesh pocket on the harness for stashing gels, so you can hydrate and refuel without slowing down.
- Front and back reflectivity keeps you visible on morning and evening runs.
- I am 110 lbs and 5’1″ so i wanted something light and small.
- I considered the Nathan Moxy since it was made for women but it was a little bit expensive.
- I put the bladder in the freezer to get a clump of ice and added the water the next day.
- It did feel a little hot on my back but I ran in 70 degree weather so it was warm period.
- The little pocket in the front was perfect for my sunglasses.
- I had some money, a Samsung Note 4 , and a granola bar.
- I highly recommend it if you are considering a backpack.
- I have an armband and the Running Buddy plus but they are not good for a big phone.
- Also, hiding a water bottle in the bushes for hydration isn’t always the best option.
- What impresses me the most is that it rides nice and high on my back and stays tight with no sloshing up and down or side to side while I run.
- In fact, it is virtually unnoticeable, even two hours into the run.
- And when I get back I still have two thirds of the water left so in my opinion it holds plenty of fluid for the long distance athlete.
- For anything other than running, you may want something that offers more storage.
- But this one has plenty of room for a phone, wallet and keys.
- We bought them for the longer runs and the hotter days.
- Very comfortable fit for the longer runs (by longer runs, I mean our 7-13 mile runs).
- We had a few ice cubes to ours to keep it a bit cooler on hot days.
- It is so nice not to have to carry a water bottle, and we didn’t have to worry about running out of water.
- It also holds our gel packets in the front strap pocket for easy access.
- There is plenty of space in the pockets on the backside for other items.
- Note: I don’t know if we needed to wash it with vinegar and water as others recommended; but we did, and there was no plastic/rubber taste.
- I have one that I use for runs over 10K, sipping water every mile.
- This one was for my wife, who uses it for the same things.
- Great pack, sits light on the back and you hardly feel it there, plus it has a handy front pocket on the left strap that is perfect for a gel or sports beans (could fit two easily, but not much more).
- I don’t use the pack storage other than to stuff my keys right inside the zipper, but there is enough room to stuff a hat of gloves in there if needed.
- I can easily fit the essentials such as my wallet and keys in there with no problem.
- I could probably put a sandwich in there too if it isn’t too large, but I’d be afraid it would get squashed.
- My only complaint is that you have to pull the reservoir out most of the way to be able to fill it with water.
- The outer bags are good quality – functional without trying to be flashy.
- He would have stuck with the Mule, but wanted something smaller and lighter when he didn’t need to carry 3L of water.
- I like the pockets for stashing running snacks, and I like the way the weight is distributed.
- You barely notice it is on, and it doesn’t move around once properly adjusted, although as the water level declines, you may have to tug the straps a tad tighter mid way through the run.
- You have to like pull the reservoir halfway out to fill.
- Lightweight, holds a decent amount of water, and fits snugly.
- Great little pockets for phone, snacks, keys, whatever.
- I used this for a music 3 day music festival in vegas and it held up.
- This works great, sits high on the back and isn’t heavy.
