Got it a week or so ago, have used it twice and I too am in lurve (cannot do that heart thingy!!). Only thing I am thinking is I might need a wee chest strap as it slightly slips on one shoulder ... despite my pilates teacher training I am obviously still lopsided!!! But I think it's absolutely brilliant - love not having anything round my waist and you barely know it's there and it's surprisingly creative for storage

Daytrekker: Oh, that's funny. And leads to a whole load of other YouTube stuff on untrarunning - lectures, even!

cragc its a good fit for us Liliput people isnt it?

the shoulder width is much better on me and its much shorter overall on th backpack which is good. it nearly reaches my waist (have a very short bod and the rest of me v long -odd shape) but is far better than the other i had. i agree in that its lovely not to have clips and belts around your waist now  will be trying it out more tomorrow with kit in

p,s loveheart thingy is this : twice  with and ' l ' lowercase in the middle

A post about ultra running!

Tim , thats a really great and honest report! that picture of you in the dark heading towards the sea is amazing-looks a beautiful place and a good photo! as you say , best to learnt he hard way on a shorter ultra rather than a 100miler. we live and learn, a very well done to you, looked like a very scenic course.

Tiago, are you trying to say that normally on here we just talk twaddle

Nice report and great photos. I've been up visiting that area this week and vowed to go back next year to run the Cleveland way.
