Great, with a small caveat.
I got this waist pack to carry my tools low and close to the body to minimize the weight felt while riding. Previously I was using an Ergon backpack which does an exceptional job loading the hips but it's on the bulky side and carries weight off away from the body which felt weird to me.
So now I'm carrying weight on a waist pack and this thing seems super solid, extremely well-built, and worth every penny of it's relatively hefty upfront cost.
Adjustment is straightforward and once set up should require minimal fussing with. Space is ample for tools and snacks etc. and the included tool roll is a nice inclusion.
Riding with it felt pretty good but with a lot of jostling the strap seemed to ride its way up and eventually I would feel it tugging across my abdomen, with the weight slung low over my lumbar area.
After cinching it up so the pack sat atop my hips more, this improved.
So what's my reservation? The pack seems awesome, but wearing weight across the hips takes some getting used to so make sure you're ok with it. Also I guess proper setup (sitting on top of the hips) is important.
Paired up with the Hydropack 3, the combination makes for a great setup.
