I've been struggling to find a decent pack that doesn't get on my nerves during long runs and I'm looking at lightweight race vest type ones and ideally I'd like something that allows me to carry two bottles on the front straps (not bothered about a bladder) and only really need space in a pack for a jacket and some food so a small pack would be fine.
Trouble I seem to have is that the couple of Salomon packs I've tried so far (XA10+3 and Agile 17) seem to ride quite high up my back when I do up the straps as I'm 6'1" and in the case of the Agile 17, it's basically impossible to reach the side pockets so I want something front mounted and really minimal as I now run with a handheld bottle as well.
I don't know if other taller runners have this problem with packs riding high or if it's just me but it's really annoying having to take off a pack just to access side pockets. The only way it's low enough is to loosen the straps but then it's too loose so I figure a pack that's more like a waistcoat/vest might be a better bet.
Any suggestions/recs would be appreciated.
