Let’s get right in to the deets:

The Orange Mud Endurance Pack:

Cost $134.95
Use Mountain biking, Running, Hiking
Weight 9.5oz.
Bladder Hydra-pack 2L
Dimensions 10″ wide x 13″tall
Volume 6L (storage space)
Storage 3 compartments + shoulder storage + front storage, both sides
Material Abrasion resistant, tough stretch fabric
Other Male and Female friendly (straps adjust to fit curves)

Comes in three colors – Orange, Grey, and Green

So, I’ve been testing the Orange Mud endurance pack for about a month now and it continues to impress me. I’ve tested it while running (long runs up to 10 miles so far) and while hiking (up to 4-5 hour hikes). It’s incredibly easy to use – easy to strap on, cinch up, clean, fill, and use. The tube is long so that it can also be used while biking. If you’re like me and won’t be using it for biking, you can cut the tube to make it shorter/personalize the length. I have not done so yet as I feel as though I shan’t be trusted with scissors around a $100+ dollar item.

The Orange Mud Endurance Pack is lightweight and easy to run with, yet does have plenty of storage for hiking or long runs. The chest straps have two cinch-up front pockets (each side) and two velcro closure pockets (each side). The pockets are perfect for gels and EVEN (as I just discovered) phones. Any phone. I have an iPhone 6S Plus and it fits perfectly in the cinch-up front pocket. I love putting it there on runs and hikes because its secure, won’t fall out, yet I can easily grab it if I need to change the music or snap a photo.

There is also a good amount of storage in the back – the material is stretchy, so it’s not bulky but you can fit almost anything in there! I easily stored a full-size sunscreen spray bottle in the back zip compartment while on a hike (with room to spare). You could easily fit a wallet, cell phone, sun screen, sunglasses, and probably even a pair of flip flops or something larger in the back zipper. It holds 6L of storage space.

As I continue to use the Orange Mud Endurance pack, I will think of any updates, tips, and/or tricks and add them here! For now, that’s all I have and I hope I’ve helped someone in their search for a hydration pack! I think that Orange Mud is a very genuine company and has very thoughtful designs. Bottom line, I would definitely recommend this product.

    LOL. Ok new slogan with the Ms Jenna patent.”What happens in CO stays in CO”.Just remember, they drug test the top women finishers in major marathons. Ah, who are we kidding like that will be an issue for you HA HA :). And NO they don’t keep the top 101’s pretty busy, it just takes us longer to complete an assignment :). Hmm did I just insult myself. Done in by that 101 again LOL. On a serious note – closing in on that PhD.Don’t worry I wont forget the little people when it becomes official. Work is going well,however, being in the administrative aspect of things is not so fun.You really don’t have the power to make the changes you thought you would. I actually have been thinking about moving into the training aspect of the position. Anyway,thanks for the well wishes on my injuries.I run my 60 miles a week- every week. I do my 15 to 17 miles on Sunday run, and that one hard 10 miler. I keep the additional 33 miles pretty tame. It is my hope that it will be sufficient to bring me a sub 3 hr time for my last one. Ok Ms Texas, keep up your GREAT training,you really are killing it!!!!!. I will touch base with you in September when I will hopefully be finished with school. BTW – Sweating as you walk to the mail box.Slacker, you should be running :).
