Rebecca I.wrote a review of Nathan HPL #008 Race Vest on May 14, 2011
I have gone thru a number of hip hugging hydration systems for my marathon and half marathon training. I was somewhat skeptical with the backpack as I am prone to chaffing everywhere it seems. I have worn this backpack with shirts and with nothing but my running bra and have yet to chaff. Also the pockets for cell phones, and GU are something I have always needed. this is the best hydration system I have found and I love it. The only thing that would improve it is something along the straps to tie down the extra flappage.
