Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trail vest, good price, nice features Have to admit I only bought this as I had a voucher to spend - normally I’d buy a ‘big name’ trail running brand, but it’s exceeded expectations. Used it all week on a running trip and it was excellent. Taking it on T42 this week. Comfy, loads of room and well thought-out features. Just wish it was a darker colour as it got filthy straight away!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very light and capacious I like this vest. It is very light and comfortable to wear. Only disadvantage is how dirty I get each hike. It is difficult to get clean again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great to wear while walking or running Fantastic but for one thing the two water bottles included tend to leak a bit and have to be really screwed tight to prevent this and with time may be cross threaded

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfy Vest Picked this vest up for my longer runs where I needed to carry some water, calories, and additional gear. Vest is very comfortable with no pressure point or chafing to date and the vest comforms really well so it's rock solid when running and stays put. I originally bought a larger size but exchanged to a medium to make better use of the adjustment range on the straps. The material on the back pack is nice and stretchy allowing you to stuff lots of kit in the pack plus there is plenty of storage on the shoulder straps/soft flask packets. Haven't bothered washing it yet but the laundry bag is a nice touch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome running asset! I'm so glad I got this! It's perfect for all my running essentials, especially on longer runs and especially great at this time of year to hold my jumper once I've warmed up a bit. Plenty of space and great accessible pockets for my jumper, phone, keys, gels, etc. Great having the option to fit a water bladder or the bottles that come with the vest. So far, I've been using the bottles and finding them good, though I suspect they are a tad flimsy, so may have to move to the bladder soon...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Vest- What an upgrade This vest was my first exploration into running 'vests'- I was previously using and familiar with other hydrations systems, which had more of a 'pack' design to them. First impression was how soft and malleable the running vest was. Compared to my old pack which had the typical supportive design with almost a board running up my back to distribute weight evenly, I was initially struck by (and perhaps concerned by) how this vest felt- without any solid structure to it at all- much like a hoodie or sweatshirt. I was concerned that the contents could push into my back, shift around or bunch up, or just be generally unsupported and uncomfortable on my back, especially over 5+ hour runs. That said, I was also really impressed by the flasks on the front pockets, the option to carry a bladder, and how soft the material felt compared to my previous pack. As it turned out, my concerns were completely unfounded. The pack, in many dozens of hours of trail running, has not given me so much as a single issue. It is lightweight, comfortable and roomy and stretchy enough to fit a surprising amount of kit (ie. polypro top and bottoms, waterproof pants and jacket, first aid kit, mid-layer top, 2 litres in bladder, body glide, beanie and gloves, phone, keys, gels, bars and bladders in front). The kit does not chafe or dig into my back. It doesn't make me feel sweaty or hot on my back like my old pack did. Others have noted the storage pockets on front not being adequate or useful. Whilst I understand what they mean in terms of not all having zips or closures, I don't believe they need them- using this pack for the mountain run of the Kathmandu Coast to Coast I fitted (along the strap pockets only) 5 Clif bars, 6 gels, a GoPro, my cell phone, and two flasks with 600ml water in each. I stuck the gels into the open ended pockets where they hung out but never once came close to falling out, so it doesn't seem to be an issue. I should also note that carrying all this was completely comfortable to do and not bulky or unnatural at all, the vest remained in place and didn't slosh or move around. That sums up the vest quite well I think- you never feel like it is there at all. Cleaning is simple in the washing machine every half a dozen runs, the material has taken some beatings from a few falls and thorns but remains untorn. In summary, couldn't recommend it enough. Whether running for 5km or 50km, I wouldn't leave without this vest.

Are there any instructions online for inserting the bladder correctly?

Asked by: Runchick
There are no set instructions sorry - you just slip the bladder into the pocket provided - see picture 7 for how it should sit - and then thread the hose through one of the openings labelled on the vest

Does the whistle detach from the plastic clip? Looks like it should as it’s on a leash but I can’t get it to budge..

Asked by: SJ900SS
No sorry, this whistle is sewn in and fixed to the shoulder strap. It is not detachable.

What is the warranty on these??

Asked by: Anonymous
All of our products fall under Consumer Law, so if there is a manufacturing fault we will sort you out, but if it is a wear and tear after reasonable use then this is not covered by any warranty. Often this is something that can be repaired so we recommend heading into your local store to discuss this option.
