Pockets galore!

This pack is comfy and holds everything I need to bring-water, gels, extra layer, small handheld water, phone, snacks-with room to spare. I rated 4/5 stars only because I wish it had additional straps to tighten it up, it has just the two across the chest, but as my water empties I’d like to pull it up a littler higher. Overall it’s great!

Great Features

Comfortably snug with tons of storage space and multiple pockets for everything. Wonderful water bladder. Excellent running/hiking vest!

If I could give this 30 stars, I would! Have had it for about 3 months. Had a previous Nathan hydration pack that worked great for 10+ years but didn't have as many pockets as I'd like so I bought this. OH THE POCKETS!!! Soo many pockets that I'm still finding new ones 3 months later. It was truly intelligently designed so that you can reach all of your stuff while you're running. Amazing. And it fits like a glove. It doesn't bounce and doesn't chafe. It fits like a piece of clothing vs a pack. If I'd known how great this pack could be, I would have upgraded years ago.

Leaky pack

The vest had a lot of storage and fits comfortably, and I haven’t had any chaffing. However, the mouthpiece developed a hole after only two uses and now sprays water constantly whenever there’s water in the hydration pack. I asked Nathan for a replacement mouthpiece but never heard back. This is unacceptable given how expensive the vest/hydration pack was.

Amazing Features!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love the storage space in this and how light it is! Additionally, the insulated feature of the bladder is a game-changer for running in the heat!! I would recommend this to anyone to add to their gear list.

Lightweight & comfortable

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love this hydration vest, super cute & light weight. Of course you need to wear a shirt under to stop chaffing. I would be really awesome if in future one was made with a material to stop chaffing so it can be worn with just sports bra. Otherwise plenty of storage for yummies.

Great Hydration Vest!

Wore it once so far and it was perfect! No chaffing, plenty of pockets, super light weight, and cute! Exactly what I needed for marathon training. I just need to get used to running with the full bladder; water weighs more than I expected.

Great, except…

Almost everything about this vest is perfect. It cinches down tightly, holds a lot of stuff, and is lightweight and comfortable. My one major complaint is the bladder. It has a slider opening and I can feel the hard plastic on my back when I use it. Also, it was designed so that the knot in the connecting line between the slider and the body of the bladder is against my back instead of facing outward so I can feel that as well.

Beautiful color!!

Got the vest knowing it was a compression vest. I ordered a small but probably could have used a medium. Works great thus far minus being tight. I love the color and functionality. Training for my first marathon this fall & need the summer hydration for long runs before the event.

Very Nice Pack - Only Issue is Chafe w/Sports Bra

As expected it chafes my back when I run in a sports bra (all packs do including my previous Nathan). However, it fits comfortably and is nice and stretchy. It doesn’t feel tight and restricting when I have a full bladder in, like my previous pack. I also wear it for mountain biking and it is amazing!! No chafe, even with a sports bra, and super comfortable (nothing digs/pinches). It seems to hold heat a little more than the VaporHowe did, but once it’s soaked in sweat it doesn’t chafe anymore. More storage than the VaporHowe too.
