Routing of bladder tube
I take mine out the gap just above the waist pockets, then feed it through the elasticated straps up to just below shoulder level.
I don't take it over my shoulder though, and prefer to pull the mouthpiece up to my mouth to take a drink, and then push it back down once I'm done.....
I feed the tube through both of the elastic straps, and rest the mouthpiece just above the top strap. This means the tubing sits between my arm and my body, and I typically stuff the bottom half of the tube behind the waist strap, to stop it flapping around and brushing against my arm......
I haven't tried to refill the bladder whilst it's in the pack, and not sure I'm ever likely to need to...... my longest runs to date have been around 16-17miles, and I only got through between half-3/4s of a full bladder....
Good luck with it all
