I went with the size chart and I think this product fits very comfortably. In the summer I’ll run in 90-100 degree weather and I haven’t had excess heat issues underneath it. Of course you will sweat a bit more than normal but the breathable material definitely reduces heat. The pack stays tight with very little bounce but doesn’t feel like it’s strangling you. With tons of pocket/pouch options I would recommend this pack to anyone looking to go out for just a few hours or an all day adventure.

Great fit!

This vest is great for long runs. It fits well and has very little bounce. Easy access to the flasks makes hydrating while running super easy!

Best vest ever!

I have two and am buying a third... That's how great these are! The comfort and storage capacity are awesome. So well thought out and has everything I need. The only issue I have with it is that the newer models have a different (mesh) material than previously used, and I find it scratchy around my neck sometimes. But I still wear mine for every single trail run!

Intelligent Design

Bought the vest a few months ago. It's my second one (I lost weight so the first one is too big now) and still love them! Plenty of well thought out storage for gear and nutrition. The only thing I would like to see is a way to run the bladder tube differently. I would like to run the tube over my shoulder.

The Best Vest EVER!

Upgraded to this from my Amazon vests/belts for marathon training and I'm in love! Holds enough water for my long runs and isn't too heavy. Sizing was very accurate as well!

Very confortable to wear!

I've been using this vest for about a month now going from a belt system. I don't think I would ever go back to belt hydration systems only because you don't feel it on you. It's a bit heavy when you have 2.5 litres of water (2 x 500ml and 1 x 1.5l) when you put it on. But it literaly takes seconds and you don't even notice you have it on anymore. Love all the pockets. I haven't ran yet in the high temperatures yet but at 20°C it was still very confortable. Looking forward to trying it on a half day mountain hike. Just check your size properly or try it in store first as I bought Large and it just didn't feel confortable. When I got XL, it was night and day.

Great for road running!

This is my first vest, and it works well and doesn't chafe. I wrote a detailed review of my experience, but, when I clicked "Submit," the website popped up a message saying: "YOUR NICKNAME HAS ALREADY BEEN TAKEN BY ANOTHER REVIEWER. PLEASE CHOOSE A DIFFERENT ONE." And, when I got back to the review form, my review was gone. This will have to suffice. Salomon: Why must names on reviews be unique? And why, when rejecting a review on that basis, does the website not send the user back to come up with a different name?

Major design flaws!

As much as I love the look of it and how well it stays in place, there are some flaws that puts me off from recommending this vest to others. First, as others mentioned, the inside material is so rigid that it ruins any clothing underneath. Second, the reflecting lettering on the front and the side of the vest started peeling off just after one hand wash (I have seen similar complaint with raceflag version). Also, the items that you put in the front pockets end up at the back which was mentioned in other reviews as well. Lastly, those extra non breathable layers at the back makes your back sweat a lot.

Great fit/features!

I am 6'-1" and about 190lbs. I've had trouble finding a vest that fits me well. The ADV 5 fits great and has the features I need. Since purchasing, I've worn it on 1 marathon, 3 half-marathons, and one 25k trail run. I worked great! I recommend!

No Bounce, Snags Clothes

I like that the ADV SKIN 5 does not bounce and has a lot of pockets. However, it snags clothes that you wear underneath pretty badly. I wore a nice running tank/crop top under the vest for a 20 mile run and the shirt is pretty much destroyed unfortunately. My arms did chafe a bit while wearing a tank top, but were fine when wearing long sleeves. If the shirt that you were under is more moisture wicking, it doesn't snag as bad but still a little bit.
