    Race day.

    Months of intense training, dedication, and careful preparation culminate the moment you step up to the starting line.

    Most Breathable Vest

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The folks at BackCountry have been awesome in making sure I got a vest that fit just right. This vest is perfect for those hot runs when you need a little more breathability and little more hydration than a hand held. (especially if you sweat a lot) I found this vest to be perfect for carry 1 to 1.5L of water as well as all my nutrition. No need for anything bigger if you are planning to be out running for less than a full day or are doing a supported race with aid stations. Better fit and more breathability than the previous 3.0 version.
