Goes the distance, and then some.

Maintain a blistering cadence during grueling races and intense training efforts with the Ultimate Direction Marathon Hydration Vest. This streamlined hydration vest holds a two-liter reservoir within its main compartment, and it also sports dual bottle holsters for greater hydration capacity during the longest runs of the season.

Adjustable sternum straps support the pack so it won't jostle around at speed. Cool Wick Mono Mesh shoulder straps maintain exceptional breathability to reduce sweat build-up. There's a zippered pocket large enough for the iPhone 6, which is especially handy if you're tracking your running stats with a GPS-based app or listening to music. Plus, there's a front-stretch pocket for storing your keys and cash.

Top notch

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm a Clydesdale runner. 6 foot 3, 220 pounds. I can say the size large vest actually fits me. Doesn't chafe the neck or shoulders. Light. Durable. Simple and well designed pocket layout. No bounce. A basic, no frills vest that does what it is intended to do and holds just the right amount of stuff for shorter days on the trails.

Exceeded Expectations

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I purchased this vest to use in the Spartan Race World Championship at Lake Tahoe. Through 14 miles and 35 obstacles it held up, and helped me to finish in the top half of the world's best obstacle course runners. A week later I used it again to run the Steamtown Marathon and in the process qualified for the Boston Marathon. The product was great, light but durable, and very functional. Looks great too! And the customer service at Backcountry was 2nd to none! Thanks Sam!!
