A high-capacity hydration vest pack, the Nathan Elevation includes a 2L hydration system and features numerous storage options to ensure that you’re able to carry and conveniently access everything you need on your next running adventure.
With unisex styling, the Elevation’s 3-way Propulsion Harness System ensures a comfortable fit while allowing the pack to move with you as you react to varying terrain over ultra-long distances. An elasticized sternum strep slides up-and-down to adjust for your preferred fit. A broad, ventilated harness cuts down on rubs and hot spots while helping to keep you cool. A padded, perforated backpanel cushions the weight of the Elevation against your back. Soft, breathable, wicking fabrics provide next-to-skin comfort and keep you from chafing.
A 2L hydration system is included and fits securely in a dedicated, insulated compartment. The compartment has a zipper closure that provides quick and easy access. The drinking tube runs over the right shoulder and secures to an integrated clip on the sternum strap. The bite valve provides a steady drink-flow while maintaining a leak-proof design. In addition to the hydration pocket, there are multiple zippered compartments and stretch mesh stash pockets for organization and increased capacity on the back of the Elevation. A shock cord at the base of the pack enables you to lash a windshirt or rain shell to the exterior, and trekking pole clips allow you to attach your poles to the back of the vest, as well. Adjustable compression pulls cinch down excess space when the Elevation is below full capacity.
The front of the Elevation features several conveniently-located pockets, including dual front bottle pockets that hold up to 2 22-oz Nathan Tru-Flex bottles (sold separately), as well as a front zip smart phone-compatible pocket and a stash pocket over the left front bottle pocket to hold energy gels. A removable safety whistle and reflective accents are also incorporated.

Likes: Still looking for the perfect hydration bag, but this one comes close. I've been using a smaller Nathan bag and like the way it fits and rides, but I was always trying to stuff more into it, deciding what possibly important things to leave behind. This bag has enough space to take everything I need for a long day on the trail, even in challenging weather, and it fits and rides just as well as my small Nathan.
Dislikes: What would make this closer to perfect is a 100-ounce bladder. I run long and I sweat heavily, and 70 ounces just doesn't cut it. What saves this bag is that it has room to stick an extra bladder or some bottles in it, so I can get by.
I also wish it was available in less flamboyant colors, like a nice black or brown...
