5 of 5 Perfect fit March 21, 2021
Reviewer: Lee Macdonald from BARNSLEY, South Yorkshire United Kingdom  
I have tried alternative best but ultimate direction is far better than others on the market for me. This vest doesn’t bounce, it fits perfect and is just right for storing items for my longer runs. This is my second UD vest and the quality is outstanding, worth every penny and makes my runs really enjoyable.

4 of 5 Great Vest But Soft Bottle Leaks December 27, 2020
Reviewer: Stephen Clune from Viva Bahriya, The Pearl Qatar  
Vest construction is great - lightweight, perfect for long distance running.  Sadly one of the soft bottles developed a leak after only 4 or 5 runs.  Bottle is now unusable.
