Marathon MTB

Camelbak has FINALLY solved the endurance MTB racer’s conundrum of bottles or Camelbak. NOT strapping on a well loaded Chase vest before your next XCM event is a mistake. It positions all of your needed gear closely while keeping it pinned to the rider in a comfortable and stable way.

Bike Radar

As far as hydration packs go, the Chase Bike Vest is relatively light and airy on the back. It sits securely over rough terrain and can be adjusted for height on the back as well as tightness around the chest.
