UltrAspire Bottle Hydration Vest: BASHAM RACE VEST

Engineered from the specifications of professional ultrarunner Amanda Basham, the Basham Race Vest from UltrAspire answer's Amanda's very specific requirements for the vest to be able to tackle some of the most prestigious hot weather races. The Basham Vest’s defining characteristic is its incredibly small footprint which reduces weight and increases heat dissipation. Despite its size, it can carry up to 2 bottles as well as a jacket, headlamp, nutrition, mandatory items, large smart phone and other accessories. Including an UltraFlask 550 Hybrid Bottle that fits horizontally in the rear foam insulated passage pocket, accessible from both sides with either hand. Another bottle can be stored in the upper quick stash pocket on the rear (accessible by either hand over the top of the shoulder) - built from 4-way stretch mesh for maximum capacity and featuring a magnetic closure to keep contents secure yet accessible. There is an additional expandable quick stash pocket on top of the insulated passage pocket (bottle compartment), perfect for a jacket or headlamp that need to be accessed whilst on the move. This pack features UltrAspire's ErgoFit harness with UltrAcool Light Mesh - the shoulder straps are narrow, have on the go access pockets, and can carry a large smart phone as well as a tracking device or valuables in the large zippered stretch-mesh pocket. Adjustment straps on the side and on the sternum provide a personalised fit. One size fits most.

FEATURES
- Max O2 Sternum™ for unrestricted breathing while maintaining a stable pack. Uses shock cord with good stretch for unrestricted breathing but also good rebound on the stretch for a stable ride. Patent Pending.
- Magnon pocket for sweat-free pills, with automatic magnetic closure for rapid access to pills and other essentials. Patent pending.
- Quiet zipper pulls that are bounce free, easy to see, grab and pull
- Silicone and PU coated feather-weight nylon fabrics resist water, abrasion and tears.

- Sweat proof webbing—won’t absorb water or get saturated and heavy.
- Safety stitched bar tack on all stress points.

4 of 5 Light-weight race vest August 13, 2023
Reviewer: Aidan from FIFE United Kingdom  
Supremely stable and light vest with the water sitting at the back. I have no issues with accessing the bottle moving fast. Given I'm 6ft tall and have average shoulder mobility should fit a wide range of body types. Phone pocket has no issue with an iphone 12.  Took off one star as the straps around the side can be a little constrictive compared to the Salomon vests. Noting also it's more stable as the front pockets gets filled up.

5 of 5 Minimalist July 25, 2023
Reviewer: Adrian Villagomez from Mikado, MI United States  
Highly recommended for half-marathons, workable for full marathons or ultras with aid stations. Very lightweight and cool. You'll need some flexibility in your arms and shoulders to reach the bottle, which I didn't have a problem with (I'm a man with a chest width of about 56cm).

5 of 5 Lightweight vest April 24, 2023
Reviewer: David Evans from Bristol, Bristol United Kingdom  
A very versatile lightweight vest for those who prefer one water bottle rather than soft flasks. Having at the back means that the weight distribution feels more balanced. It has well thought out front pockets for gels, phone, etc. I bought this for the London marathon and it was really comfortable and barely noticeable to wear. Despite being relatively minimalist, there is still a surprising amount of space to carry stuff and it is now my go-to running vest for training runs.
UltrAspire always have well-designed and thoughtful products, this is no exception. The zips, fastenings and pockets are all easy to access, which is important if hands are wet or cold, etc.

4 of 5 Quality March 7, 2023
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Maidenhead, Berkshire United Kingdom  
Very good quality item. I found that I couldn't adjust it to be comfortable as the front straps can't be adjusted up or down as in many other running vest so I had to return.
