Final Look at the Cotopaxi Veloz Hydration Pack

Overlooking the beach in Grand Isle Louisiana

Even though I have been slowed with an Achilles issue, I have been able to use the Cotopaxi Veloz for an additional 80 miles of running and hiking putting my total miles on the pack over 200.  The pack continues to show excellent durability except for the front chest strap connection point which has continued to fray, but has not failed.  The pack has continued to work well for all of my hiking and running adventures, and I have remained chafe free.  Click HERE for to read my final thoughts on the Cotopaxi Veloz Hydration Pack.
