You might also try GoLite.com. Backcountry.com also has a pretty good selection of trail running backpacks. Are you looking for a hydration pack in particular? If so you might try Camelbak.com. Plenty of options it seems.

I like the Kole Gear pressurised backpacks, their wastpacks are really good as well. Easy to use and very light which is important IMO.
Have never tried Camelbak but they have a really good name and share of the market, so I'm sure they're pretty good as well. J

Not sure how much you're trying to carry, but looking at hydration packs in general is a good place to start.

As far as I'm concerned here's some brands that make good packs for running:
GoLite - http://www.altrec.com/go-lite/backpacks/
Deuter - http://www.altrec.com/deuter/
The North Face - http://www.altrec.com/the-north-face/backpacks/
Inov-8 - http://www.inov-8.com/Products.asp?PG=PG2&L=27
Osprey - http://www.altrec.com/osprey-packs/talon-11-backpack and http://www.altrec.com/osprey-packs/talon-55

I recently bought the Deuter Race X Air for my husband and he loves it. He uses it for mt. biking but I've borrowed it for longer runs and it is great! Check out his review: http://robonza.blogspot.com/2009/09/review-deuter-race-x-air.html
I hope this helped, best of luck! :-)

For women, this is the pack I use. http://nathansports.com/hydration/race-vests/intensity I have found that for me, waist packs are constantly riding up. This pack has been really comfortable and stays in place.

Have any of you tried the pack with a bladder on the back and two bottles on the chest? Do the bottles get in the way of your arms? Have any women tried it? Do the bottles stick out too much with your chest?
