CamelBak PowderBak for Running - Brief Review

I bought a CamelBak PowderBak hydration system for my long distance winter runs outside. I reviewed the CamelBak products and this one seemed like it would be the best fit for me, even though it was probably not originally intended for running. I wanted something to go over a base layer, but under my outer shell, and so of course something that wasn’t too bulky when wearing. This fits nicely under my running jacket so that it is not too tight. The “vest” midlayer of the PowderBak does fit snug over my base layer (I got a Large size for my 41-42” chest), but I would rather have that than too loose when carrying a few pounds of water on your back, moving around, etc.
