Great vest

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.

Really good, adjustable, snug, great!

This fits really well, no jiggle. Phone in the front, keys in the side and waterproof on the back!

Brilliant

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

Definite Double Thumbs Up!

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.

Dissapointed...

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.

Incredible quality and value

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,

Good vest

It’s a great vest, the only thing I don’t like are the small fastening clips

Seems like a great product but beware sizing

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.

Excellent

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.

Fine until zip on pocket broke

Had about six months. Works reasonably well with decent pockets for water bottles and snacks/ gels etc. However this week the zip on the pocket completely failed making the pocket now unusable. Given one of the benefits of this vest was the zipped front pocket it now serves limited purpose for future runs. All in all a disappointing purchase therefor.

Hi Peter,

Can you please send me the photo of the broken zip so I can refer this issue to one of our product managers in order to monitor this kind of errors.

Great looking but size up!

Bought as a Christmas present for me.. Xs/s purchased. I measure under 90 cm across chest but I can't even do this up with the ties let out. Will hopefully be able to swap to the larger size.

Phone pocket

I have just received my running gilet and tried to fit my samsing A21s into the phone pocket .The phone will not fit .I am disappointed as this item was for my 11 year old son to run on the fells and keep him safe carrying his phone .The pocket should be designed to carry every size of modern phone .

Really bad sizing

Ordered an XL which I am for EVERYTHING... honestly it's not even remotely close to fitting. If you're an XL, then there's no product for you here, anything else then recommend you order a size up.

Hi Grace,


Sorry for any inconvenience related to the sizing of this product,we have a lot of good reviews for this product but I will pass this negative feedback to the product managers just to let them know about this,and to give them the idea that we need maybe to think about biger sizing in this product.

I can see that you already used your benefit to return any of products that you are not completly satisfied,so I hope you are confident to try more of our products in the future.

Any questions related to the running products please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,




Igor

Just right

Wanted a hydration vest with storage and this was perfect. 12 pockets so will fit everything i need to carry. Sipped pocket handy for phone etc but could do with being slightly bigger and better placed as once bottle in place really tight to get phone in pocket but doesn't bother me as i can carry my phone in a belt around my waist.

Sizes bit mis leading

Purchased a m/l which is what I take in pretty much everything, was disappointed when I tried it on its more like an xs.

Hello Darren,


Thank you for taking the time to review your purchase. With regards to the sizing, the location of where you measure yourself to get get the correct fit is different to other bags in our range.


With this product you must measure around your chest. The chest sizings are: 77cm to 94cm XS/S, 95cm to 105cm M/L, 106cm to 120cm XL.


It must be noted that even with the correct size selected, this product is designed to be figure hugging to reduce movements of the bag and in turn reducing irritation. Also it is worth taking the time to play about with the three adjustable chest straps, these can removed and placed in different positions to suit.


If you haven't already, you should be able to request an exchange for a bigger size. Once you have the right fit I am sure you will be just as confident in this product as I am. Do not hesitate to contact me for any further information regarding our running products.
