CLOSE FIT

Trail Running (UK) - - Kit Bag -

The new Skins Hy­dravest blurs the lines be­tween com­pres­sion cloth­ing and race vest-style packs. It’s a uni­sex prod­uct avail­able in three sizes with stretchy side com­pres­sion straps to fine­tune the fit. The vest has four front pock­ets: two for the sup­plied 150ml soft flasks and two for food or essen­tials. At the back there are two larger pock­ets, the top one fits a 1L hy­dra­tion blad­der (in­cluded) and the lower fits a jacket and first aid kit. The tube from the hy­dra­tion sys­tem routes in­ter­nally over the shoul­der and is held in place by a mag­net. In­ter­nally there’s a small zip pocket, and you also get lots of re­flec­tive de­tails. It car­ries wa­ter and min­i­mal gear with no bounce, is thinly padded be­hind the pock­ets for com­fort, and the rest is mesh for max­i­mum ven­ti­la­tion. The low-pro­file de­sign means it will even fit un­der­neath a jacket if you need it to. www.skins.net
