Hydration Vests

Hydration Vests also known as Race Vests and Ultra Vests have become the standard running backpack for ultra marathons, endurance events and fell runs. They keep all pressure off your waist, stomach and internal organs and instead wrap your ribcage and upper body in a highly stable and comfortable manner. We provide a fitting service for race vests in store so that you too can say goodbye to bruised shoulders from bouncy running rucksacks and uncomfortable midriffs from tight bumbags and waist straps.
