I bought a Salomon XT Wings 5 Hydration Backpack for this year’s Stanley’s Mountain Run to ensure that I would be able to comfortably carry all the required equipment.
- wet-weather gear,
- medical kit,
- space blanket.
I use a Nalgene CXC Reservoir 3L Rapid Fill bladder if the two water bottles are not going to be enough. The pack has an adjustable sternum strap and waist-belt.
It is also quite useful as a light daypack for hiking. You can carry your liquids in the two 600ml water bottles, and use the main storage area for snacks and gear instead of a bladder.
