5 of 5 It fits well and it carries stuff.... September 5, 2022
Reviewer: Brian Newton from Perth, Perthshire United Kingdom  
For years I got by with (and preferred) a cheapie backpack and bottles stashed in side pockets. I eventually admitted the benefits of a bladder and front pockets. I've tried other vests with smaller nominal capacity that end up too tight fitting once you put anything in them. This seems to work for me. Adjusts loose enough for comfort even when quite well stuffed. I like the zippered front pockets. Still not worked out what to do with all of them. I like putting compass and glasses in the GPS tracker pouch - secure - easily accessed - not crushed. Probably the same for all of these things - practice makes perfect - spend time wearing around the house and studying where the pockets are and what might usefully be put there.

3 of 5 Good vest, fit not great for me August 9, 2022
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
The vest itself is of good quality.
I ordered an L, because I have a larger bust.  While it fits at the bust, the “wire” the chest straps glide along is now too long and does impinge onto my ribs. The adjustment at the back is great and ensures a great fit, although I have to pull it quite tight to fit in the size L.
If used with poles not all front pockets are easily accessible anymore.

3 of 5 Poor choice of sizes and very wobbly May 31, 2020
Reviewer: Sam from Stromstad, Bohuslan Sweden  
Compared to Salomon, UD has very little choice of sizes and I thought because the vest is highly adjustable. However, if you are in between sizes like me and plan to do a multi-stage trail UD ADV VEST 5.0 is not recommended by me.
