It's easy to go light--just run naked. If, however, you'd prefer some clothes, water, and food on your next long run, try the Salomon S-Lab Sense Pack Set. It'll keep things light, but the nylon and stretch mesh vest will keep you cool and comfortable, while an assortment of eight pockets will hold two soft flasks, snacks, a layer, and other minimalist essentials. It'll wick moisture away from your skin to keep you comfortable and has a safety whistle and reflective trim to make sure you're easy to find and spot if you wander off course in the middle of the night.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The good: - The bottles that come with the vest actually don't leak. They are superb. You have to put pressure down on the nipple for anything to come out and this design is perfect. These bottles are worthy of an separate purchase. - Pockets are good/sufficient.
The bad: - This vest is very bouncy if the bottles are filled up to 75% or more. And you must tuck in the nipples downward to keep them secure or else they literally come out of their holes within moments. You figure this out after the first 10 seconds of trying to run and feel the bottles go flying. - Additionally, after some wear this vest has stretched and doesn't go back. At some point it will become unusable because the straps will be maxed on on tightening and then it will be even more bouncy.
I don't think this vest solves the problem of carrying stuff in an unnoticeable way. For this price I was hoping for something more extraordinary.
super light, does what i need it to do. I have several other vests and this was intended to accompany on more race driven events. However I wish i had purchased the version with the back pouch as that would have helped me stuff a few more things like a roll up jacket. All in all buy a size smaller than what you are used to because these stretch more than the typical salomon vest.
Overall the vest works very well. The reason for the low rating is I've only had the vest for 2 months and one of the zippers has already broken. There is only 30day window to return but I didn't think for a second I'd have to deal with poor craftsmanship from a company like Salomon. On the positive side, the collapsible flasks carry just enough fluids without sloshing or weighing you down. The pockets are large enough to take your phone, gels, a bar, car keys and other small stuff.
