The Nathan Zeal and Intensity are hydration vests of similar quality and size, which are designed specifically for the female torso. However, these models differ sharply in their respective structures and intended functionality.

For instance, the Zeal vest is designed with specifications for smaller personal niceties (such as phones and sunglasses) and features a harness that stabilizes the vertical and lateral movement of the hydration bladder at the expense of its overall volume capacity.

True to its namesake, the Intensity's more unforgiving design is optimal for endurance races, with its ventilated frame and shoulder straps and larger hydration bladder.
