Fluid™ Race Vest 3 5 1 1
Kind of on the fence I have the original fluid race vest as well as the fluid race pack and would say that the original race vest has a snugger fit than the new version.. I have almost a year of running in the original and only about 2 weeks in the new version which is why I titled this as "on the fence".. ---------- Likes: -The new pockets on the front.. Much more functional and with them being the same size you can load balance. -The smaller straps -The zippers don't have floppy cords on them -The small zipper pocket on the back (great for keys/ id) -The way the tubing can be routed out the bottom of the new version.. When using a quick connect bladder you can disconnect the bladder and shove a new one in and keep moving (if you are racing with a crew) ------------- Dislikes: -There is no way to connect the top of a bladder so it tends to sink as you go causing quite a bit of movement which the old version didn't have, -For some reason the back around the neck behind the head rides up as you go (especially if you have no bladder or the bladder is getting empty) causing chaffing. I have laid the two versions on top each other and they appear to be identical in size so note sure why this is happening.. ------- Overall: - the new features are really well thought out and add greatly to the function of the vest.. My reason for being on the fence and for not giving it the highest marks in all categories is the old version fit snugger to the point you forgot it was on but the new version moves around and for a race vest, to me, no movement is key..
