Great colour, cozy fit!

I love the colour in person. I find it fits a little tight for a small; 5'5" @ 125 athletic build but I naturally prefer items to be slightly less fitted. I am still playing with the straps to figure out what's cozy. Nonetheless it's great and I'm happy with it :)

First impressions this vest seemed great. I knew the straws would be long, I am 6’ tall and they were still way too long for me. I watched Salomon’s video on how “easy” they were to adjust. After 2 hours, many tools, many swears, and losing all the skin on my fingers I have semi adjusted straws. They are IMPOSSIBLE for any human to adjust. Really disappointed since the main function of the vest is supposed to be female specific easy hydration. Vest has a weird shape, even when empty it gives you a hunchback silhouette, but the pockets function well. Mostly it’s the dang straws

So many pockets! Good size!

Use this for my long runs and ultras (two 50km races, training for my first 80km) and has held up great for over six months. I don't use the long straws as they are distracting near my face. I instead use the bottles with other Salomon caps, or I use my Harrier 500ml bottles. My favourite thing about the vest is the amount of zippered pockets. Overall, there is minimal movement, but eventually the vest starts to chafe at the neck at longer distances and in heat/humidity. I have taken to using kinesiology tape in that area to protect my neck.

Comfy and practical

I love the many pockets in the front, it has enough space for all my snacks during my long runs and races. It is flexible, comfortable and snug. I love that they designed this for women as my previous running vest was not and the bottles were very uncomfortable on my breast. With this vest, the bottles fit nicely.

Excellent running vest...

... Just wish the "arm holes" were a bit bigger. Got a medium because of the fit around the armpits, but the vest was clearly too big after doing a couple runs, so had to downsize to a small which fits around my chest much better but is tighter under the arms. Otherwise I love all the features, accessible pockets, hydration pack straws, built in whistle, etc.!

So versatile & comfortable!

Love this vest. I went with the 12 so I could use it for shorter and longer adventures. Its so comfortable, and moves with me. I don't have to tug at the adjustments or play with it while running, which is awesome. It does have a LOT of pockets, which takes time to remember where everything goes and maybe is a draw back for short excursions, but for long adventures it has tons of storage and ample places to put things.

My favorite vest by far

This vest is great. It's comfortable, has lots of room for snacks and gear, and has been durable with one exception, the zippers. I've had one for 6 months and love it; however, both zippers have come off making those pockets worthless. I just ordered another of these vests hoping that the zippers thing is isolated to my current vest. Other than the zippers, this has been one is my favorite vests for trail running and hiking.

Great Pack for Day Hikes and Trail Runs

I was hesitant to buy this at first because there were some many comments about the straws being to long and hitting people in the face while they ran. I went ahead and ordered it thinking I could switch out the hydra-packs for some different ones i already had. Once I got it and played around with it for a bit my boyfriend and I discovered that the straws tuck into loops at the top of vest. It hodls them in an arc shape so they don’t flap in front of you like antennas. Overall I’m really satisfied with this purchase! The pack can hold a large hydra-pack, first aid kit, and anything else you could possibly need while out on a day hike or doing a long trail run. If I was going to change anything, it would be addressing the straw issue and at least letting people know how to properly use the straps if they want to keep the straws down. Otherwise this is a great product!

Decent but not in love

I like the general feel of running with this pack, when wearing a jacket or collared top, but find it chafes my neck and is generally rough on my skin. My 15yo Ultimate Direction jenny pack and my old commuting gregory pack are both better on my skin, and on hot days I can wear either of those with a sports bra, but not this salomon adv skin 12. I wore it with a collarless long sleeve and my neck was ripped up.

Love it perfect for my trail run

Supper comfy, has plenty of pockets and is lightweight. It doesn't even feel like you have it on.
