Great running pack

So far I've taken this pack on two 30-40km runs and on a solo mission around the Kepler Track (60kms). It's a great all-around pack for big days, but you could use it for shorter days, since the large back compartment cinches down nicely with the cords. There is plenty of room for whatever you would need for an all-day run or hike.
The large front zip pockets and 2 outer back pocket make for easy-to-reach functional space for food, your phone or camera, or smaller pieces of clothing that you might want to take off and on as the weather shifts.
There is a small pouch at the top of the pack that fits my rain jacket perfectly. It was really easy to pull out on the run.
The pack fit is true-to-size for me, and the adjustable straps are great. If you adjust this pack right, it doesn't shift around. No chafing so far.
Some items that could be improved:
- The outer lower back side pockets could use a simple closure, like a snap. It would be unlikely to drop anything out of those when the pack is pretty full, but since they're behind you, you might not notice if something dropped out. A small closure would be ideal. You could chose to use it or not. I might install my own snap or a small piece of velcro there.
The front bottle pouches are great for the bottles that pack comes with, but the narrow bottoms don't fit most other 500ml flasks (they won't slide all the way down and flop over the top when full).
The mesh that contacts your body was rough enough to pill one of my relatively new thermal tops over several hours of running. I didn't have issues with smoother technical shirts (and that shirt did not pill while wearing my other pack). Hopefully this will be less of an issue over time with some more wear. (Even though the pack was rough on my shirt, it did not chafe my skin.)
I question how the bottom large velcro strap is going to hold up to prolonged use, but so far, so good.

Wore it to the 24km valley ultra was really comfortable and all the pockets easy access with food. Was unsure about the size to begin with but really enjoying it now.

Super comfy run vest

Really happy with my purchase. Extremely comfortable and more than enough space to for all of my essential equipment for runs on the trails. I love the elasticated fittings on the chest. No rubbing no chaffing and nothing gets in the way while running. Great product.

Comfy vest

I love this vest! It’s super-comfy and was a lifesaver for doing essential deliveries during Level 4 of Lockdown.

Comfortable running vest

Great vest very comfortable. Bottles in a good location and seem ok to refit when the pockets are full.
Plenty of room for Kepler compulsory kit.
One chest strap has fallen off somewhere which is a little disappointing. I see if there’s a replacement option.
Otherwise I am happy with the vest.
