Bought this 5 years ago for cycling. Love the removable reservoir. Allows you to set in frige to keep your drink cold till needed. Only problem I have with it is that during storage/non-use, the valve will leak if set below the height of reservoir. Easily corrected by setting valve higher than reservoir. Not a problem during use because valve is clipped upright next to your mouth. Would recommend for anyone that leisurely bikes or rollerblade like myself.
This pack is small and fits well - but the drinking tube and valve are horrible! We only used it ONCE and the valve broke. Even before it broke it was dripping and leaking and could not be "snapped" shut.Very poor value!!We threw out the receipts and cannot even return it!!
Pro's: Pressure Gauge is nice, assuming it's accurate..overall the design would be awesome if it wasn't cheap and plastic.Cons: Cheap plastic, the lever that is supposed to lock onto the nipple broke w/in 2 months of use. The adapter for Presta valves never worked, ended up getting one of those metal ones...which is annoying to say the least. Never used the mount, but the tire repair kit that comes with it is always extremely cheap.Conclusion: You definitely get what you pay for with this thing. Everything is cheap, meant for an impulse buyer like I was at the time. Don't do what I did, get the [$] pump instead of the [$], cuz you'll just end up spending a total of [$] in the long run!
I bought this pump because it was portable and could travel with me. I pumped my tires with it maybe three times, and was a little disappointed because I could never quite get them super-full. Nevertheless I liked the portable size of the pump.
Later, while I was out on a bike trail I noticed that my front tire had deflated. I stopped and started pumping. However, the plastic tube on the pump pulled out and all the air escaped from my tire -- completely flat. I tried to fix the pump as best as I could, but was never able to do so -- or to inflate my tire well. I managed to make it to my destination, which fortunately was close by. I tried repairing the pump, but it's absolute junk.
I am upset because I threw away the receipt and UPC code and cannot return it. I feel like I threw 18 dollars in the garbage by buying this pump.
