Update Cotopaxi Veloz Hydration Pack

Cotopaxi Veloz Hydration Pack

I have put over 100 miles on the Cotopaxi Veloz Hydration Pack running and hiking since my initial review.  The pack has delivered with plenty of space to hold everything I need for all day adventures and has been more comfortable than I expected.  Durability has been good with the exception of a tear beginning to grow where the front hook connects the shoulder straps.  Click HERE for my full update.
