Jan wrote a review of Nathan HPL #008 Race Vest on March 27, 2011
I have worn a waist belt and carried bottles. No matter how I positioned the belt it always constricted my breathing. I liked the bottles but thought I should try a vest. I really had my doubts about comfort, but the HPL really is super comfortable. There really is NO breathing constriction, it does not shift, I don't hear sloshing water, it is easy to drink from, and easy to give my dog water, also. I have found that I wear it on all distance runs whether I need the water or not-- it is really that comfortable. I am super happy with it.
