Size
Size

Size

The UltrAspire Epic Hydration Pack is a unisex bag with an adjustable fit (it comes in only one size). It provides 25L of capacity with its main compartment totaling 11L of capacity. Compression straps around the bag keep stuff in place without bouncing. It's a pretty big pack, so not a good choice for runners wanting a lightweight option. It is, however, comfortable enough to be worn for running but be aware that this isn't an ultralight piece of gear.

Despite the fact that the bag is unisex, reviewers were happy with the number of adjustments, which allowed for a customized fit. Some reviewers did fit the chest strap a bit fiddly, but otherwise, getting the bag to fit right was a fairly simple task. For longer journeys, the bag provides plenty of space for water. In total it accommodates a little over 4L, but if you wanted you could definitely fit additional bottles inside.
