Rated 5 out of 5 by from Female runners with size C boobs, this is your vest! I am not your typical long distance runner. I am 5'8", 145lbs, and have size C boobs. I was recently at UTMB trying on the many vests that are on the market and was utterly disappointed that all the front straps did not account for having boobs. Came home feeling as though I wouldn't be able to wear a vest until I ordered this. This sis the best for women runners with boobs! Can't say enough good about it. Absolutely live it! I went with a size larger then my typical size medium shirt and it's great. Also, it will allow me to wear the vest in the winter when I have several layers on. You won't be disappointed. Thank you Nathan for this vest!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits like a personalized glove! I wish I found this vest years ago. I started training for a half marathon a few months back and it was becoming painful to carry water bottles, but was impossible to do it in the Virginia heat without them. So finally I splurged and purchased this vest. It is like it was made for my body: I am a petite 5'2'' woman who is not overly skinny (125 pounds). The vest holds a ton of water, as well as two phones (one in a zippered pouch, the other not), and extra space for water bottles. I could wear it with or without a shirt under it, and I have no problems at all. I adore this vest! It will be the primary reason I was able to successfully train through the summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Trail Pack I looked at this pack when I first started distance running but didn't try it because of the price. I tried several others and wasn't happy. I finally bought this pack and realized I should've just gotten it to begin with! It is well worth the price, for sure. You get what you pay for. There is an abundant amount of storage and it's flexible enough for any gear I want. The material is amazingly soft and doesn't chafe at all! The fit is fantastic and easy to adjust as well. I especially like the special shape of the Nathan bladder: no sloshing when I run! I wish I had gotten this earlier but it is my only pack now and I am satisfied!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fit: Great. Storage: Not so great This has become my favourite running bladder for all my weekly trail runs but I really hate the storage compartments. They are geared to racing but due to their large sizes they make for extremely bad storage for the safety gear I take on my runs. Everything bounces around because the pockets are so large and nothing fits snuggly in them. I really can't understand why designers have to always reinvent the wheel, why couldn't they take the storage compartments from other pacs and just add a comfy fit. That being said the fabric and fit is superb so I keep using it all the while thinking ... if only they made a training version, same fit better smarter storage compartments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy, but could be improved I have an iPhone 7s and there's no great place to store it on this pack. No matter where I put it, it bounces and hits against me with every stride (I even feel it when it's in the back pocket). What I liked about the VaporAiress is that it had the drawstring cords in the front pockets to secure any items. This pack does not. Although the material of this pack is comfortable and I haven't had any chafing, it is a huge pet peeve to have my phone jump around everywhere in the pockets. I used a XS VaporAiress and use a size S of this pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VaporHowe Thank you! I've been out on two long training so far with this vest and love it! It fits all of the mandatory equipment for my next race with ease, and though I was skeptical, the bladder and pack design really do reduce audible sloshing! Though I have an athletic/muscular upper body, the fit feels ergonomically correct in regard to female frames. The material is fantastic and rides quietly. The only drawback is that I am not a huge fan of the color scheme- other than that- 5 stars PLUS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pockets, YES This vest is perfect. I bought this because I ride my bike to the trails, have 4 dogs, and run where there is no available water in the high desert. No more cramming stuff and breaking zippers or ripping fabric on my pack. I love the many front pockets. All you have to do is reach behind your head and lift up on the loop to elevate pack and grab stuff out of the huge back pockets. I got a small, have a small chest with a muscular back. Fit is snug and doesn't move around. So far up to 10 trail miles w/ no chafing in the heat or bruised ribs. Plan on 50K.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vest I bought this for my 1st half marathon and I absolutely love it. I am a short person with a big chest (34DD) and wasn’t sure how it would fit. I bought a medium and it worked great!
