Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for mountain adventures Just got this and took it out on the grand. It was pretty full but carried very well!! Was great running and scrambling. 10/10 would recommend
Date published: 2022-08-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Quality to weight ration For commute and for trail running this bag is amazing. It doesn't have the structure and rigidity of a true commute bag like a fastpack 20 from Ultimate Direction, but that makes it lighter and for me it is a good tradeoff. Usually I don't even need to pack consciously and every fits and feels comfortable. I even once had a hoodie, a pair of shoes, extra clothing (shorts and T-shirts) and my lunch and it went smoothly. I only wish it came with bottles as the distance 4 does.
Date published: 2022-08-03
Rated 3 out of 5 by from in theory, the perfect pack... I bought this 15L pack after needing something slightly smaller than the Ultimate Direction Fastpack 20. I do a lot of unsupported 100 mile runs on remote trails, so needed something that could get me from end to end without sagging when the food weight diminishes. I ran semi-long (20ish miles) on trails with the BD Distance 15. With minimal weight, it fits great on my back. It takes more adjustment than usual to get 750 or 500 ml bottles standing straight up rather than tilting toward to the center of my chest at 45 deg angles. But once I figured out how to pre-adjust the sternum straps and shoulder tension, the bottle position was great. Also, the size of the pockets accepted the bottles well, even after I was very tired (this is sometimes a problem, I've noticed, on other packs; everything's smooth at mile 50, but then things get shaky and unstable at 70, and the slight issues amplify into major problems). Similarly, the hook closure on the pack worked great when I was lucid and trotting along early in a run; later, as I was trying to get stuff out of the pack by slinging it over a shoulder and trying to get more food/clothing in motion, it became VERY difficult to unhook and rehook. The same happened to the drawstring closure. If you're sitting down, taking a break, it's not so difficult to mess with these little hooks and closures. But if you're running and trying to keep pace, they really cause problems in motion. This surprised me, because I think of BD as the kind of company that would vet these kinds of issues. I would much rather have a (replaceable) basic clip/buckle, with a very replaceable and basic toggle. I do a lot of winter routes, as well, and messing with these clips in the winter, even with light gloves on, would cause similar problems. Finally, I tested the pack with a full, maxxed out load. The back padding tends to crown under full load, causing the pads to contact my back under pressure. Once I made the mistake of running with no shirt on for several miles, and the welts that the padding left in my back were really significant (I still have little scars). Ultimately, this is a great pack for a run under little stress (small load, minimal exhaustion). But when I took the pack deep into the journey, the little issues really became significant. Some minor fixes could send this pack into the next level of performance, akin to a UD Fastpack but more nimble and minimal. The size, at 15L, is PERFECT for a multi-day unsupported run (20L is too baggy). But the poorly designed details, as I said, start causing problems when things get more serious. (I won't add a photo of the cuts on my back at max load, but I still have the scars to prove it.) I so wish I could sit down with a BD tailor and make those adjustments so that I could set off with this pack with full confidence in its long-term performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight Backpack Vest It's light and comfortable to wear. It's a good product to use in hot weather. It has a good color and excellent storage capacity. You can use it comfortably for short-distance hiking.
Date published: 2022-07-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super lightweight and can pack in all the goodies for most lightweight days out. I've worn this running, biking, hiking, scrambling and expect to use it for much more. Lots of pockets on the shoulders for handy stowing of food, water, bear spray, phone, etc. The zipper pocket fits my second gen iPhone SE with a case just fine. The main pocket has handy side pockets for keys, wallet, inReach, and one for a bladder. The side compression straps work great if you're only packing a little bit and keep the load nice and secure. The pole pockets are also great - ideal for a 'Z' type pole, but also work with 3 part, telescoping poles. The body of the pack seems super durable. Downsides? I have some 500 ml soft flasks from Hydrapak that work in the front pockets, but they seem a little long... not sure if the BD ones would work better or if a little flopping is just a matter of life with soft flasks (this is my first time working with them). The ice axe system is cool, but I have been able to jiggle my CAMP Corsa out a few times. It didn't fall out, just didn't seem fully secured - not sure if that's an issue yet, or better with other ice ax brands. Overall I'm really happy and this has replaced two packs that I used for different amounts of gear on various activities. THAT is a WIN in my book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome pack and really in a category of its own! Only complaint is that the vest water bottle pockets could be larger, it is a chore to squeeze water bottles in them. Other than that, this pack is awesome!
Date published: 2022-07-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is extremely comfortable and runs well. I've used it running and for MTB, and will start using it for run commuting when I'm back in person. Hanging the hydration pouch on the inside is a little finicky, since it's a little plastic tab instead of a velcro strap or something. I also wish there was a good place to put my inReach mini outside the bag without it bouncing around (I guess the mesh pockets work okay for that though).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used on Grand Traverse skimo race Used this pack during the 38mi Elk Mountain Grand Traverse (ski mountaineering race) as my primary storage device. The pack was super comfortable and accommodated the entire packing list (just barely). The front pockets accommodated sufficient snacks to keep my fueled throughout the race.

What is the largest size hydration reservoir that would be appropriate for this pack?

Asked by: A Dog
I fit my Osprey 3 liter. The listed hydration size of under 50oz is for the front pockets that hold up to two 500ml soft flasks.

Could you tell me if it's suitable for thin girls' backs?

Asked by: bird
Hey bird, thanks for the question! This pack is not gender specific, this small available is appropriate for torsos ranging from 26.8-33.5". Unfortunately, you can't really shorten the length of the shoulder straps though. I'll make sure we get that corrected as soon as possible, I hope this helps!
