I Run Far

This is an absolute workhorse of a pack and a joy to use. The superior comfort and fit, the secure ride of the pack over all types of terrain with a variety of loads, and the durability thus far all allow me to give a fully five-star, two-thumbs-up, enthusiastic rating to the Ultimate Direction PB Adventure Vest 3.0.

The Run Commuter

It is a lightweight and comfortable running vest with abundance of run-accessible pouches. But the pack has low carrying capacity and is expensive to buy.
