Some things they have in common are: 100 oz bladder, very light mesh construction, pockets on the shoulders and hips, chest strap, and not too large compartment in back.

If anyone has any experience with things like this I would certainly appreciate some input. Here are a couple of the ones Iíve looked at:

What some other alternatives?

Thanks in advance.

I hate running with a camelback. I tried the camelback flash flow and did not really like that either. In the end I went witth the Amphipod and 4 bottles. It was the least offensive while running, plus it had a pouch for gels and an ID. Fuel belt would work as well. I resisted the belt style hydration systems at first because I did not want to refill a bunch of little bottles, but in the end it was the most comfortable solution. What I like about the Amphipod is that it is scaleable.
