Solid hydration vestI’ve run with this vest for about a month now. It’s thoughtfully designed and bomber. The wind jacket stash sleeve and the pole bandolier system are selling points on their own. For shorter bc ski outings the large pocket on the back is a good size to stash skins.
I generally wear a large shirt, but sized down to a medium with this vest and the fit is good. No hot spots even when I run without a shirt, which was a nice surprise.
Small gripes might be the color and water bottle pockets. I can imagine the mostly black color way getting pretty hot in the summer. Also getting the soft flasks (which are awesome) into the front pockets is tricky. If I refill on the trail, I have to take the vest off. The trade off, though, is that a they have never come close to bouncing out.
Great vest. I’m excited to see what else BD develops for the mountain runner.
