I was lucky (?) enough to get a free Olmo 5 this week, but cant quite figure out how to adjust it so the bottles aren't trying to rub my nipples out. Anyone got any tips, or am I just the wrong shape/size/whatever for it?

Tends to be a problem with raid light strap mount bottles (I'm assuming they are)

I used to secure the holders to the straps with duct tape to minimise bounce. Then I gave up on it and bought an OMM pack.

You should put it on your back. They're not meant to fit over your tits.

I must say I was somewhat confused, what with talk of tits and nipples.

Mine did that but I just have the shoulder straps so tight there's no movement, and then do up the chest strap. I also use smaller bottles than the ones provided and that helps. I love mine though, apart from it rubbing slightly on the back of my neck. How did you get a free one? Mine cost a bloody fortune!!!

Thanks for the responses, Ive been out enjoying the sunshine:)

Flanker, I already have the OMM last drop, but the chest strap water bottle for it are cack. I'm only trying the Raidlight 'cos it was free :)
SpeedyMel, Ive tried that and the bottles just end up in front of my arms :(, though maybe I'm taking it too far. I'm really happy with the size of it, esp. in the hot weather I need as little insulating me as possible. Got it from a guy on an RW forum who wasn't using it and offered it to a good home, aren't runners a friendly bunch? :)
