First product review of my project of the Salomon Trail 20 Hydration Backpack. The version I purchased came bundled with a 2L Hydrapak hydration bladder. The pack is very light, tough and capable. I've used it through 15 marathons to date without fail. Normally I'm carrying a 3L Hydrapak bladder plus two bottles, food, and safety gear.
