I Run Far

Overall, I really enjoy using the lightweight UltrAspire Alpha 3.0 Hydration Vest especially for hot runs requiring extra fluid volume. Its hard to think of a pack with better breathability. With a bit better fit and access to the side pockets or an additional pocket in the front for food storage, it would be amazing. I look forward to seeing how the team at UltrAspire improves upon this in future renditions.
