2.0 out of 5 stars Leaky, 13 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After 3/4 use I noticed a puddle around the base. Water leaked from between the machine and water bottle. Got a replacement and exact same problem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellant for price, 13 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the price this bag can easily compete with more expensive brands.
The main compartment holds the bladder, this is suspended by two clips.
Both arms have access for bladder tube or headphones from the main compartment.
After reading reviews about this being unsuitable for women due to the chest straps being across the breasts I understand why as although thus adjusts 6 inches it would be high allowing the bag to move about or across the bust causing discomfort but this is the same for 99% of hydration bags.
I use this for cross country MTB and it's perfect, holds a tool pack, bladder and lightweight jacket. Does not bounce around as expected on the downhill.
Only slight issue is on other packs the arm has a loop to secure the tube and stop it waving around, this does not however I used a carabiner to sort this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good. Simple. Does the job., 17 April 2014

Does what it says on the tin. Good quality. The fasteners possibly be better with a full length of cord and a toggle rather then three lengths of cord.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good but I'm sure for the money there is better., 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good product which I'm sure will last. Only gripes are that the welding / casting on the chimney is very rough and looks like its possibly been repaired by an apprentice welder who couldn't be bothered to grind the welds down flat. The instructions state to use two lengths of screws during assembly. Only supplied with one size but it kept the kids puzzled looking at them for a few minutes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok. Make sure it's the size your after. A4 not foolscap., 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ad states the item does not have anti tilt so I expected the drawers to slide open and as it'll be locked unless having items removed didn't think this would be an issue. The locking mechanism is cheap at best. When locked the drawers can move about a good 10-15 mm so it's not going to be the securist item. Make sure you buy the right insert hangers. This is A4 not foolscap!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellant., 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for our 1 year old who has two older brothers so she ain't exactly gentle, It's done plenty of miles and now she is 2 it still great. She's even climbed into it a fair few times and its managed to remain damage free. Impressed with this and can't find any faults with it. Easy to assemble out the box.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent value, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I expected this to be cheap and very plastic. Surprised its full metal. Very strong and sturdy. Well worth the money and I'm sure will last a while. Have one for camping and one for in the car when snowed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for light stuff, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Postage faster than stated on ad. Good for light jobs such as holding tarps to paracord in good weather and light items to bags.
