I am looking for a pack that will perform well on fell runs and ultra marathons. I will need to carry the usual, waterproofs, warm top, GPS, food and a hydration bladder. I have looked at the salomon advanced skin S-LAB 12 set . Any other suggestions out there ?? Many thanks, Matt

Feels good having the main weight (water) around the hips not on my back.

In reply to Steve Perry: thanks. Does this help to stop the bag from bouncing around?

I'd get a couple if you can stretch to it. A little OMM bumbag does me for most fell and ultras with well-stocked stops. I also have a 15L OMM that I haven't used that much but is really stable and good for running - waist and chest straps and cinches down nicely. Overnight folk tend to use something between 20 and 30L depending how comfy they want to be :)

Would be worried about the suction required to get the water in to my mouth esp. If I'd been working hard.
