Cram it in your pack and forget it until you need it.

I was looking for a Vest to do biking and runing, this is a great Vest, very light you don`t feel like you are wearing it. I went cycling wearing it on a windy day, it kept the wind away, performed great with the sweat and dried very quick. While running is great, bright color so you can be seeing be passing by cars, not loud fabric, dries up the sweat very quick. It was a great purchase, i recommend it!!
Does this zip all the way down in front...
Does this zip all the way down in front or is it a pullover?
It zips all the way down the front. Its just kind of hard to see in the picture.
Great running vest!!
hen I saw this vest in person I was shocked how light and yet durable it is. But the price tag was the show stopper...until I noticed big "SALE" sign!
I've had a few vest and jacket with similar weight / grade shell, and this vest is by far the best I've tried on. They are very light, yet durable and does not trap much heat like other "gabage bag wind shirt".
I like the fact that the vest has reflective printing but they are so blend in I don't get confused as construction worker (I have grey one)
The only thing I'd change is the back - they are black wicking mesh material and I think they should use the same color as the body. Also the cut of black section is uneven and kinda look funny from behind.
All in all, I found a new fav gear for my daily run. I my even buy the jacket for much cooler day.
Getting Ready for Cast Creek Trail
Just got this vest, full review pending,...
Just got this vest, full review pending, but I will say the description is incorrect, there are no front pockets, only the chest pocket. You can even see that in the pictures.
Thanks for your note Andrew. I have sent your question/comment to the powers that be at Backcountry to correct this in the tech specs. Sorry for the confusion around the description. I hope you like your vest! Cheers and Thanks!
Hi Andrew--thanks for calling that to our attention. The tech specs now note: just one chest pocket. Thanks again and happy vest-ing.
Never leave home without it
This is an awesome vest. Packs down super small! highlight reflective. Blocks wind. And has DWR finish with Chitosan. What more do you want in a vest. I keep it in my jersey pocket when cycling in mediocre weather then completely forget that its there since its lightweight. I use it trail running as well. Way better than the other Nike vest I have. Its currently on sale. Dont know why but its a steal so get it!!
