Great for road running!

This is my first vest, and it works well and doesn't chafe. I wrote a detailed review of my experience, but, when I clicked "Submit," the website popped up a message saying: "YOUR NICKNAME HAS ALREADY BEEN TAKEN BY ANOTHER REVIEWER. PLEASE CHOOSE A DIFFERENT ONE." And, when I got back to the review form, my review was gone. This will have to suffice. Salomon: Why must names on reviews be unique? And why, when rejecting a review on that basis, does the website not send the user back to come up with a different name?

Major design flaws!

As much as I love the look of it and how well it stays in place, there are some flaws that puts me off from recommending this vest to others. First, as others mentioned, the inside material is so rigid that it ruins any clothing underneath. Second, the reflecting lettering on the front and the side of the vest started peeling off just after one hand wash (I have seen similar complaint with raceflag version). Also, the items that you put in the front pockets end up at the back which was mentioned in other reviews as well. Lastly, those extra non breathable layers at the back makes your back sweat a lot.

Great fit/features!

I am 6'-1" and about 190lbs. I've had trouble finding a vest that fits me well. The ADV 5 fits great and has the features I need. Since purchasing, I've worn it on 1 marathon, 3 half-marathons, and one 25k trail run. I worked great! I recommend!

No Bounce, Snags Clothes

I like that the ADV SKIN 5 does not bounce and has a lot of pockets. However, it snags clothes that you wear underneath pretty badly. I wore a nice running tank/crop top under the vest for a 20 mile run and the shirt is pretty much destroyed unfortunately. My arms did chafe a bit while wearing a tank top, but were fine when wearing long sleeves. If the shirt that you were under is more moisture wicking, it doesn't snag as bad but still a little bit.

Doesn’t bounce !

I used my running vest on pavement and on a gravel trail it was great for both without any bounce ! I was able to hold my water, car keys and headphones. I absolutely love it and it’s totally worth it along with being aesthetically pleasing .

ADV Skin 5

The pack is excellent for a 30K and will be perfect for the 50K I have done. The only drawback would be that it does get hot in the back so I’d recommend a lighter color besides black for the summer.

Lightweight and Invisible!

I used to have an ADV Skin 12 but found that it was too heavy for me. I didn't need all the pockets especially the backside one. I swapped it out for the ADV Skin 5 and love it. The vest is so light and it just fits like a glove. I'm 5'3" 120 pounds and the Small size fits perfectly. I mainly use it to hold my phone, one of the bottles, and a light jacket in the backside pocket when it's windy/rainy.

This vest is exactly what I wanted; it is comfy, the pockets are easy access, and it is durable. I just wish I got a 12 instead, so time for a new one I guess 😂

Comfortable vest, still unsure about size

I've bought the vest in color blue and size XS and it is beautiful in person, really well built. I was between sizes XS and S because my chest size falls on the upper limit for XS according to the size chart, but I was afraid it would be too tight. It was also confusing that the female model shown on photos is using a size M even though her chest size also falls within limits for XS, so not much help. The vest fits tighter on me than the examples shown and most of the photos I've seen online of others, but ultimately it felt comfortable while running, didn't move and I forgot about it during the race I bought it for. For reference: I'm 5'3'', weight 121 lbs and have a 32D bra size. It did took some adjustment, as the first time I ran with it I didn't like it, probably because I'm not used to running with added weight on my torso, I had always carried extra things on a belt or short pockets. But on the actual race day I pretty much forgot about it, and it is easier to reach for stuff on the vest vs a belt. That said, I've only used it with short sleeves shirts, I'm a bit weary about using it with sleeveless shirts as the inside fabric is not so soft as the outside one, but I still have to try and see.
