Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for big breasts I'm sick of women not making things for all women, especially in sports. I ordered an XL because I have large breasts, but when I put the pack on with a full bladder, it really squeezes my breasts together (because it doesn't fit), which looks utterly ridiculous. Don't market a product by saying it's made for women if it can't even fit over big boobs. Just add more line to the clips. It's not a hard fix :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best vest ever, love the flasks. I've been wearing this vest for practically every run and race since January (6 months). and am up to 20 miles for my long runs. It's the perfect size to hold everything and I LOVE the soft flasks. I'm lazy and the straw is perfect so I can drink on the run. I don't have any complaints about trying to get the caps on - however, I did notice that my friend's identical vest that she bought a few months before me has the same flasks, but the lids are different and hers are awfully hard to get on! On mine, it looks like they redesigned them a bit so they screw on with ease. Only once in the middle of a race when I was all sweaty and slippery did I have a slight problem, otherwise I refill them regularly during training runs and no issues at all. I just wish Nathan sold replacement flasks with the extendable straws. I could use an extra set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Poor water bottle design Received this as a gift. Fit is good overall. The pockets hold most things. Like the concept of the water bottle accessibility however recapping them is near impossible. I have tried every possible way to get them on the easiest but it's a struggle. The straps sometimes loosen with my run so I have to tighten occasionally. Wish there were straps to hold hiking poles like the 12L. Fit is ok, smaller than expected. I may just invest in a bladder.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Fit....Water Bottle Threading needs work Bought this vest for summer running and it fits very well however the water bottle is very difficult to close. The threads on the water bottle simply does not line up. I have only used twice since I usually get frustrated and simply use my handheld. For the price of this vest I should have returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Nathan Vest! I bought this vest right before my 20k trail run and absolutely love it! It holds my 2L bladder during hikes but for sunning races with aid stations I just use the small bottles up front. This thing has so much storage and is incredibly comfortable. I'm so pleased with my purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great vest but leaky flasks I had this vest since June 2017 and love it except the leaky flasks. I tried to see if Nathan sells replacement flask that has improved design that do not leak but I can’t find it on the site. Can someone please let me know how I can find replacement flasks for my vest?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Used it for Ragnar Snowmass and it was perfect. Yes you have to be patient with those lids :) I was bummed the 2nd run out I lost the attachment to hold a back hydration hose but, the AWESOME rep at Ragnar Snowmass gave me one -- awesome customer service by they way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Vest Perfect vest and well worth the money! Everything works as advertised. No bouncing, no chafing. The water bottles work great and you can fit a 2.0L hydration bladder in the back (even though they say its compatible with a 1.5L hydration bladder).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Vest Perfect fit, no bouncing or rubbing. This is a great piece of gear. The only negative is the water bottles that come with it. The lids are difficult to thread. Definitely invest in other bottles, but that is a small thing for such a great vest!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Vest but Flasks Leak I recently bought this vest and I absolutely love the fit. I can't however get the tops of the flasks to thread on properly so they don't leak. I liked the design with the tube coming out, but they aren't useable because they constantly leak.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Easy! So happy with this pack! I used to wear flip belts but I was getting so tired of packing things around my waist. This pack holds just the right amount of water and other needs. No chaffing, lots of pockets, and love the long straws!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfortable and will do the job for me This vest is very comfortable and seems to have enough pockets for my use. I'm a "less is more" person so that's why I chose the 4L model vs the 12L. I do wish it came with a bladder instead of the smallish flasks, but I can see the value of the flasks as well. I took it on a long run in hot weather and filled one flask with my preferred salty water. I didn't have problems with the lid as others have reported; however it seemed like the flask ended up turning itself in the pocket as I ran so the valve wasn't pointed in the right direction. A minor quibble. The bite valve works well. I used a bladder from another vest and kept reaching for the hose in the wrong place -- I wish the built-in magnetic hose clip was on the left side instead of the right, but that's just a personal preference, not a design flaw. I love that the chest straps are on sliders although I haven't yet found the perfect placement so the hose won't interfere with the pockets. The comfort of this vest makes up for those minor annoyances. My 1L flask from another brand of vest was too small for the pocket so I'm ordering a 1.5L Nathan bladder. I most likely will use one flask and the bladder and will keep the other flask pocket free for other stuff. It should have just enough pockets to meet my needs for races up to 50k.
