Low-profile, lightweight vest loaded with ergonomically-designed chest pockets.
Stash everything you need for a fifty-mile mountain bike in the UltrAspire Solace Hydration Vest. Intuitively-designed, the Solace features Plexus mesh chest pockets that provide one-handed access and automatic closure to your energy goo, bars, or other essentials while you ride. Plus the comfortable vest design provides load stabilization and compression for a comfortable ride or run on the trail, and the design leaves plenty of room for your arms to move.
- Vest design uses perforated foam for reduced weight while still maintaining structure and on-the-trail support
- Dual-side adjustment straps provide load stabilization and compression for a comfortable, secure, just-right fit while you mountain bike or trail run long distances
- Contoured shape offers a natural fit
- Ultra-lightweight 30D polyester fabric dries quickly, breathes well, and helps to move moisture away from your body
- Large-hole microfiber mesh fabric throughout lends superb breathability while you train
- Sweat-repelling webbing doesn't get heavier by picking up water or sweat-salt
- Zippered main back compartment houses the included 2-liter reservoir, and a clip on the front shoulder strap holds the water tube out of the way when you aren't drinking
- Front Plexus mesh pockets feature magnets with one-handed pocket access and automatic closure for your energy goo, salt tabs, and other essentials
- Front Magnon Electrolyte pocket features a sweat-proof pocket that keeps your salt tabs dry and close at hand
- Outer-back shock cord secures your rain jacket or trekking poles

Not bad, but I see why it's on sale
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I got this marked down on The Clymb. No reasonable reviews anywhere, but I took a risk. It has some flaws, but for the price paid, it is worth it, and I'll be hanging on to it.
-Stable, no chafing
-Very breathable materials
-I like the magnetic closures (though they used them on 3 of the 4 closures, which is too many.)
-Holds 2 liters with limited sloshing
-Haven't tried this idea yet, but I think the chest pockets will hold my 10 oz nathan flat bottles, with a little work.
-Both lower large chest pockets are magentic closure. I wish one was zippered for valuables. I will be partially stitching closed (beneath one side of the magnet enclosure) to reduce the likelihood of smaller stuff falling out.
-Bladder is directly against back, water heats up. My fix for this will be to go and get a v. thin sheet of closed cell foam, cut it to shape and hole punch it.
-No closed storage on back, just elastic. It's small, what should I expect.
-The mouth piece is a joke. I mean a total joke. Draws in air s so I end up choking and burping. I'll be replacing it with an unused camelbak mouthpiece if I can get it to fit.
-Side straps are difficult to tighten on the fly, butnot impossible, and I think I can fashion a workaround.
Bottom line: It fits well, but some of the technical details are silly. If you don't enjoy modding your gear, you may want to look elsewhere and pay full price.
