First, let me start by saying that I'm a pretty big runner by any standard, 6 foot 3, 300 lbs, and finding a hydration pack can be quite a task for us big guys.
I can also say that I did quite a bit of research, including blog readings, tryouts in stores, and research to find a pack that would fit me. Most other brands that say XL are way too small. It's like I'm trying to put on a kid's jacket. I even had a spreadsheet with the dimensions of about 20 packs, and the Adventure Pack was the one that seemed the most comfortable and had dimensions that would fit.
Once I got it, I was not disappointed, it fits quite well, is so comfortable, and is well built. I use it all the time while running or hiking. It has all the nice features, so much space, plenty of water storage.
To end this review, let me say that finding running gear for a big runner is somewhat difficult, and thanks to Drankful for making a pack that fits everyone!
The pack is sturdy and comfortable. I have never experienced a better, more comfortable pack for hiking (I have significant back issues). The hydration bladder was perfect from the first fill. NO plastic taste, just refreshing, delicious water! Great job drankful!!
My husband has been looking for a vest that fits him well for quite some time. He's very barrel-chested so most haven't worked for him. Stumbled across a video on YouTube of the adventure pack XL and got it for him as a surprise. IT FIT! Comfortably as well. I'm so happy that we can go on longer runs together now. After seeing how nice it is, I'm planning on getting one for myself when my current one starts to go. The shipping was extremely fast as well. I think it took like 3 days. All around a great pack and experience. Thank you!
After trying five different packs from various brands I finally came across this Drankful pack. Honestly I am impressed! Every thing that I could possibly think I would want in a pack, pocket or feature has been thought of here.
Main highlights: Its quiet with no water sloshing noise!! It fits comfortable. There is no rubbing, chaffing or bouncing. It's extremely well made. Pockets are easy to access.
I'm so happy with it I bought two! LOL. I originally ordered a medium which I will keep and use for hiking (more clothes). Then ordered a small for running (less clothes). I'm going to put this pack to the test over the next 24 weeks of training!!
Thank you!!!!!!!!!! Absolutely love it!!
The Drankful Adventure Pack eliminates the bounce, clunk, and slosh from traditional hydration packs and replaces it with a smooth, gliding experience in motion with your water.
The stealth-like design positions the reservoir to rest like a pillow on your back, lowering your center of gravity and increasing stability when in motion.
Quick access storage pockets and hydration at the swivel of your head prioritizes speed and organization over clutter and mess.
