Great for Spartans
I bought this for a Spartan race and it worked very well. The velcro fasteners worked well for keeping it high on my back and not bouncing around. The dust cover is key for not getting a muddy mouthpiece to drink from. Plus the holes in the back drain out all the water and mud.
This hydration pack is light and comfortable. I used it for an 8 mile Spartan
This hydration pack is light and comfortable. I used it for an 8 mile Spartan run and it did a fine job. Lately, I have taken out the reservoir and relied on the water at the water stations. Instead I have used it to carry gels and goos as well as any items (layers) I remove while running. Comfortable and versatile.
These guys are great. Great product would highly recommend
These guys are great. Great product would highly recommend. I've run 2 Spartan races (Super and Beast) with this pack. With it being made from the lightweight material hardly knew it was on. Also was able to get some energy packs stuffed in with no problem.
Wore this for my first spartan beast and it was ...
Wore this for my first spartan beast and it was so light I sometimes thought I had low water. Filled it once on the 14 mile course and could even fit my Gu packs and nuun tablets inside the pouch!
Cute pack. Small just what I wanted
In Lake Tahoe 10/1/16 in this and was extremely satisfied, light weight
Ran the Spartan Beast in Lake Tahoe 10/1/16 in this and was extremely satisfied, light weight, low profile and durable. The Velcro worked well and never came loose, only knock is if you use the dust cap the holder doesn't work, I brought my own Velcro strip to hold it in place while I ran. Overall great buy and will use it in all of the longer Spartan runs and in training. Also since there are no pockets I filled 3/4 full and there was plenty of room to put a Ziploc bag with my energy beans, salt tabs and beef jerky.
Perfect for OCR Sprints
Bought this for an OCR race after reading a number of reviews. It’s the perfect pack for hot recess. I soaked the neoprene pre-race and it helped my back stay cool during the race. While there isn’t a dedicated pocket, I was able to stuff my gloves, a small rag and some energy gems in the main compartment where the reservoir goes.
It comes with a 1.5l reservoir. I was able to fit a 2l reservoir in it but it was a wider/not longer reservoir.
Perfect for skiing or snowboarding
I use this pack for skiing and it fits perfect - high enough on my back that I don't even feel it on the chair lift. It feels too tight with layers of clothing underneath but I usually just leave the straps loose. I am 6'1" and 180 pounds.
Customer service is PHENOMENAL!
I purchased my DolfinPack mainly for Spartan OCRs and for my long runs. I researched several different brands and found this one to be a great fit for my needs. I have had it for about 7 months and I absolutely love how lightweight this product is, the material is breathable (need that in a Florida!) and it does the job. I did have to request a replacement after 6 months when I noticed that the seams started coming apart on one side and the strap began ripping. However, I still give this product 5 stars because the customer service is PHENOMENAL because within 24 hours of putting in my initial request (on a Sunday, no less) my replacement was already on its way to me. One thing I do wish it did have was an exterior pocket for fuel and/or keys so I don't have to put in the main pocket with my hydration pack.
On the suggestion of a friend, I ordered this for the Spartan Super. I am small (5'3", 118 lbs.) and many other hydration packs are too bulky, take on too much water (during obstacles), or chafe. This pack is awesome! Extremely low profile with soft straps. It velcros across the front just under the breasts.
Note that there is no zipper pocket for fuel, but in the large pouch which contains the bladder, I put chews, gel, and a protein bar no problem. My Spartan teammate had that in hers plus compression sleeves and gloves.
This pack is great on long runs
This pack is great on long runs. Stays in place, doesn't bounce around and keeps me hydrated. It is great because it allows me to stay ahead of my hydration, in the past I'd just deal with the side effects- which is not a good option
Perfect hydration back pack
This is my original go to OCR hydration pack and typically the one I use for anything over 12-13 miles it small and out of the way so it doesn’t snag up and very durable! It’s also the only piece of gear not stained from the South Carolina Spartan Beast in 2017
is easy to fill and nice looking
This has saved me during the heat wave we've had in the Northeast - it's light, is easy to fill and nice looking. Great product
Great Spartan Race water pack!
Used this for a Spartan Super and it went great! Definitely much slimmer compared to traditional water backpacks and kept out the mud that I was rolling around it. Also, there is plenty of room to store energy gels in the large compartment for during race energy. This is already cleaned and ready for the upcoming Beast!
I absolutely love my DolfinPack
I absolutely love my DolfinPack! It's comfortable to wear and does the job I need. I mostly use it for Spartan Races, but have taken it on canoe and kayak outings, as well as runs around the neighborhood or on trails. The water bladder holds enough to get me through all my evens. It is easy to clean and doesn't hold smells (like from preworkout or BCAA powder). The neoprene pack washes clean after each race! I can throw my keys, snacks, or anything inside and am not concerned about losing them! I highly recommend this pack!
