Best Backpack for parkour?
« on: October 01, 2014, 04:45:41 PM »
Just looking for a backpack that fits snugly to the body without swaying or moving around. Heard about the FastBreak Aerial packs being really good. Price isn't a huge deal hear; mainly looking for something that will carry keys, phone, water bottle, clothes, wallet, etc. and is possible to roll on.

something sporty, not bulky, and MUST have a chest strap.

My friend just brought a fast break bag, its awesome perfect for parkour, it fits all you wallet/keys/phone in, they are quite small but they are great you can roll with them and they don't move around.

The APK store does have a Hydration Backpack available. I personally own one and tested to see how it works. I was able to run, roll, flip, and do everything parkour and freerunning without issue. It is also tight and lightweight, giving it a seemingly weightless feeling to it.

Did your tests include rolls? I am curious if one can roll in that thing with out busting the bladder.

I think there is a post about this backpack and I remember that rolls did not affect it at all

I have. I was able to roll without any issues with the bladder.
