KÖPPEN 70 oz Hydration Pack
Just what I was looking for.
I was looking for a hydropack online; I found some with a few features I wanted but couldn't find any for my price range that had all the features I wanted. I needed it now and couldn't wait for shipping so I went to Dick's and I found this.
It is comfortable, has chest and waist straps, small pockets for a knife/keys, large pockets for food, footwear, camera, hat, shirt, etc.., and it holds two liters of water.
Everything I was looking for, in one affordable package. I have had no leaks. The pouch can be tricky to fill, but it isn't anything to cry about.
I use it all the time for long runs, day hikes, music festivals, etc...

Not so good
I was excited for this backpack for hiking, biking or maybe a long run. Great pockets.
Went to fill it. Almost impossible with the fill hole. And forget about cleaning. I finally go some water in and it immediately started coming out of the bottom. Needless to say, I returned it.

Good product but the gasket in the cap must be missing since it leaks out. No spare parts that I can find.

Great backpack, not a great hydration pack
I bought this today, loaded it up and went mountain biking for a couple hours. The storage pockets are suitable to hold tools, spare tubes, wallets, a first aid kit, etc. It was very comfortable, and the pack looks very good. My biggest problem with this pack is the bladder's small fill opening. Of course not only is it small, it's hard to get to. They should have designed it to zip further down the sides so you could get to the bladder well. The opening it's self is so small it's very hard to stuff ice into, and I guess if you don't want to get your bag (And gear, if it's loaded up) wet you better use a funnel or something to direct water into the bladder. I used a water bottle and that worked well enough, but it was much more of a fight than it should have been. I can envision removing the bladder and using this purely as a slim back pack at some point.

Great for day trips
Bought this for a cruise to the Caribbean I was tired of lugging around a full backpack. It was the perfect size for everything I needed. Extra shirt, sports towel, camera, sunscreen and 2L of water. I was impressed by how cold the pack kept the water. I spent 12 hours in the hot hot sun and the water stayed cold all day and was even cold when returning to the ship. Overall great small pack for the light hiker or sightseer.

This was a spur of the moment purchase. Was getting ready to head back to Indiana from Arizona. Backpacker email told about a place called Lost Maples in Texas about an hour off of I10. I knew I wanted more than just a water bottle. This little pack has pockets to seperate items, it has two larger areas that you can even fit a shirt into! Two liters of water, energy bars, emergency stuff all fit great! Pack felt good on my back! Great VALUE!!!

I purchased this product and the first day I used it it leaked all over me. I took it back and paid the extra money to get the Camelback one, and I'm glad I did. You get what you pay for.

Just what I was looking for. Not too big, not too small, not too expensive. I can fit all my belongings for when I ride my road bike and everything is comfortable.

Leaked the very first time I used it. The pack itself is nice but the bladder is useless. Spend the money on a good quality pack
