Great value hydration pack.

Quick heads up for anyone in the market for a great value hydration pack. Nevica trail running hydration pack for £29.99 (claimed rrp £60) at Sports Direct:

1.5 litre easy fill bladder with quick release hose, good bite valve (with cover) and foil insulated pouch. 10 litre bag capacity (main pocket, plus a smaller outer pocket). Waterproof cover (folds out from small zipped pocket at the base, covers the whole bag and fastens to shoulder straps with two plastic clip buckles). Outer side pockets each side with elastic straps. Vented back, good straps (shoulders, chest and waist - secure, comfy fit), quality weather resistant zips, carrying handles, just pretty damn good all round for much cheaper than a Camelback (and definitely on a par for quality). Only one colour option, but you can't have everything, lol. If you're looking for a hydration pack then go look at one of these, you won't be disappointed

That Nevica one looks a bit weird - the largest part is at the top, putting the weight high up, whereas normally the main bulge and therefore most of the weight is low down...
