As some other people mentioned, this came up really small. I'm a slim 5'9'' and the M/L was too small which seems crazy. Also, you can't really fit a 500 ml soft flask in the pocket labelled "500 ml soft flask". A 250 would probably fit better, especially if you want to be able to take it out on the move. Other than that it seems pretty well made.
Great running vest for short runs when all you need is a waterproof, keys, soft flask and possibly a phone. Plenty of adjustability and well made. Excellent value compared to other trail running brand vests of similar size and spec.
Sizes are smaller so it’s a bit tight
I wanted a vest which could take the bare essentials, along with two soft flasks. This looked like it had everything but with two bottles I found it moved around far too much. Ended up carrying one of my bottles (500ml as it is advertised as accommodating). The vest is very comfortable without anything in and the elasticity may be what caused the issues for me. Can't use for the purpose intended.
Despite being well within the measurements this is way too small. I came online to look at a return, and as well as the postage I have paid, I am also responsible for paying the return costs. This is not fair considering the error in the sizing. Will not be purchasing from Decathlon again.
I love the close fit of this vest. Lots of pockets some of which have zips which is great. I will be using these for energy bars, lightweight jacket, water, phone and cash. It has great little adjustments straps making it so easy to alter if you layer up. I am really looking forward to using this vest. I just need to get the soft water bottles to go with it.
This fits really well, no jiggle. Phone in the front, keys in the side and waterproof on the back!
This is my first ever trail vest and I’m so impressed with it. Hardly noticed it on - and holds enough water and bits for a commute or long run. Does get a little warm on a hot day but can’t be helped! Defo recommend
I found the reviews on this site particularly useful when helping me to decide whether to buy this or not and so thought I’d add my own. This is my first foray into the world of running vests. I’ve been upping my distances and so decided it was time to carry a few bits with me but mainly just water, maybe a gel and for once my phone. Doing a bit of research suggested around the 5 litre size was what was needed. Not using one before and not entirely convinced I would get on with one, the thought of spending around the £100 mark wasn’t working for me. Nor was any of the really cheap vests on offer on eBay. Thankfully I stumbled across this one, which was somewhere in the middle-ish (or rather towards the lower end of the price range). There are a couple of common themes that are mentioned in the reviews, namely the general size and phone pocket so I’ll address these first. Every t-shirt I own is a size Large and so I believed I would be somewhere between the M/L and XL size. The free returns policy meant I could order both to see which one actually fitted and I can definitely confirm that this vest really is on the small side. There was no way the M/L was going to fit. The XL, however, fitted perfectly. This is great for me but for anybody larger (who maybe is actually an XL) they are going to struggle with it. As an aside, I find it odd that this is the biggest size available. The phone pocket is… snug. My Samsung Galaxy S8+ just about fits in with it zipped up but with a water bottle on top it all gets a bit tight, stretched and heavy. You can run with it but I couldn’t fill a 500ml bottle right up and this is definitely the bottle that gets drank first. Another reviewer mentioned that the fastening clips are small and yes, they are. Not quite sure why they made them so small. They work but are a bit fiddly and my concern is their durability over time, which I guess time will tell. As I said, this is my first running vest and I didn’t really want to spend too much money. I’ve ran with it a few times and initially I was concerned about it feeling weird, moving around and rubbing but after a few outings and my longest run of 14 miles, my worries were proved unfounded. From previously running with just a t-shirt, it is a bit different and takes a bit of getting used to but I was pleasantly surprised how quickly I did get used to it and definitely don’t find it onerous to wear. Right now I’m not sure why you would want to spend anymore money on one but I’m glad I didn’t spend less as I don’t believe making the transition to wearing one would have been this easy. It’s not perfect. The straps and clips could do with being a bigger at least to give the impression of a more robust vest. The phone pocket size and position relative to the bottle holder needs reviewing and I’d like at least one more zipped pocket. All said and done and with everything considered, I am very happy with it and would definitely recommend it.
I bought this wanting it to help carry phone, gels and water for marathon training. The M/L size is very small. I'm 6' medium build and couldn't get it across my chest. I exchanged it for the 'XL' version and it fitted but the bottom strap was uncomfortably tight across my stomach - again no 6 pack but nowt heavy! I found the pouch to acept the water bladder (500ml) was really tight to try and get in to. The storage on it however is excellent the phone pocket very secure with a good zip. The price (as always with Decathlon) is outstanding! But ultimately not suitable for me, so i will be returning it again for a refund/ credit.
I have used a number of expensive trail running vests in my time. I bought this to carry stuff I need during 2-12hr days out. Its as useful as any top brand version, only slightly heavier than the most popular premium alternative but lighter than most 5l packs. Looks cool, feels quality, incredible bargain,
It’s a great vest, the only thing I don’t like are the small fastening clips
This running gilet looks great, very light, lots of pockets. I haven't used it yet because I am planning to return for a larger size. Although the description says it is for men or women, I am a very small woman and the xs/s looks like it is designed for a child. There is no way that it can accommodate the female form.
This is the first hydration vest I have owned but it is awesome. The fit is brilliant as it has a number of adjustment so it doesn't bounce around or move like some of the reviews for other vest say. There are a number of pockets for food and gels. The phone pocket is in front of the drinks bottle so it's a bit of a squeeze depending on the size of your phone.

Thanks to your reviews and feedback, we've added more storage to this new gilet. You can easily carry and reach all your equipment during your trail runs.

The gilet has 12 pockets for carrying all your accessories.7 pockets at the front:- 2 pockets for your 2 x 500 ml soft water bottles- 1 zip pocket for your smartphone- 4 pockets for your food and waste, 1 of which has a 110 dB rescue whistle,and 5 pockets at the back, including the easily accessible kangaroo pocket, for carrying all your mandatory race equipment: a wind jacket, a survival blanket, a torch, your documents, etc.

With this gilet, your equipment does not move around thanks to the stretch component and slim fit.It adapts to your body shape with a notch-tightening system.

You'll forget you have this gilet on while you run!
The two front pockets are designed to hold two 500-mL soft flasks which you can drink from without taking them out of their pocket. You can easily add a third 500-mL flask to the rear net pocket (lying it horizontally) as some races require you to carry 1.5 L of water.
The gilet has clips for attaching the Evadict trail quiver and carrying your poles without your pockets getting in the way, even when full. You can easily access and store your poles with this smart and simple system. Perfect for helping you on the technical sections of the race!Lucie, our Evadict designer, tested the full equipment on the 23 km of the Mont Blanc event: "the gilet / quiver / 3-strand trail pole trio really helped my performance on this trail!"
The foursome behind this idea is made up of Thierry the product manager, Nicolas the product engineer, Juliette the prototyper and garment designer, and Lucie the designer. They are proud to present a product that they have been fine-tuning for several years to make your races easier and leave you free to enjoy the experience.
This gilet was tested by male and female trail runners over several months and on many different races.For Thierry, "it is a simple, lightweight and effective gilet. You have easy access to your wind jacket and supplies. The most important thing is to choose the right size. The closer the gilet is to your body, the less it will move about when running. Don't hesitate to try it on in store, even with a load inside. Finally, with 1 L of hydration, you need to think about your supplies. »
As part of the desired improvements for this 5 L gilet, it is made from 60% recycled textile components.
