My biggest concern with running with a vest was chafing. No problems here! This vest is comfortable! It's lightweight on it's own, it can get a little heavy if you fill it's water capacity. My only complaint is that the weight in the front is a little uneven if you fill the water flask and don't put anything in the other front pocket. I put some gu's/energy gels in the pocket and that seemed to balance things out. I'm planning on using this vest for an upcoming trail marathon where water stops are few.
Love it! Will recommend to friends.
I made the classic mistake. Ordered the Nathan Zeal Race Vest and received it the night before my half marathon! Dough!
I LOVE the fit (i'm 5'3"} and the many pockets. My phone IPhone 5s barely fits in the zipper pocket so next time I'll try to find a better place for easy access. There was no bleeding of the pink straps as mentioned in other posts. I was planning on soaking in a vinegar/water solution to set the color but so far no problems. I gave it a 4 star because I did have one chafe mark (line) on my right arm and down my back. I partly blame myself for that because I didn't wear it on a short run to make all the adjustments. But the chaffing on my back does seem strange. I will try to update with more use. The back pockets are perfect for fall running. If you get warm there is room to add a layer to the separate pocket on the back or even in with the bladder. Oh and the bladder! I love Nathan's closure. I have tried other brands and they prove to be difficult to close and leak. Easy to clean and dry!!
This is an update to my previous review where I had used the vest for 3 times on 8 mile trail runs. I love this pack and then I ran a 13.5 mile trail run yesterday. When I finished and took my vest off, I noticed that the pink straps had bled on the light blue material. I came home and tried soaking it but the straps just bled more and more and making more of the vest turn a purple color. They tell you to soak and hand wash the vest and I guess this is what happens when you do. I noticed that most of their other race vests have gray straps and this one has bright pink ones. I love the colors of this vest but if it's going to bleed and make it look terrible then it has to go back unfortunately. So, beware that this color transfer will probably take place. Other than that, I loved this vest!
Just the vest I've been looking for! I first had tried out 2 different Camelbak's only to return them b/c they just bounced too much. Decided to try a race vest and, after doing some research, decided on this one. Just took it out for it's first spin today on the trails for 8 miles and it was fabulous! No bouncing at all. Love all the pockets and storage this vest has. I was worried about chaffing on my inner arms but that proved non-existent. Super happy with this vest and the amount of fluid it carries. I'm training for my fist full marathon so this vest can hold all the fuel and water I will need!
