With access to multiple pockets for essentials and a 70 oz (2L) hydration reservoir, the compact UltrAspire Alpha carries all you need in comfort via a contoured shape made with sweat proof webbing. A unique magnetic-closure rear stretch pocket allows access from either the left or right, front pockets stash nutrition, headlamp and spare bottles, and a unique water-resistant magnetic pocket keeps electrolyte capsules. The rear shock cord stashes lightweight apparel, or can be pulled to compress the reservoir as you drink.

Comments: I purchased this vest from runningwarehouse about 2 weeks ago. I am 5'6" and got the green one. It fits like a glove. I used it on a 1/2marathon trail run last Sunday and it was as some reviewers on other sites stated. You almost forget you have it on. The bite valve takes a little getting used to compared to a Camelbak I have but it works fine. The storage pockets are easy to use. The magnets on the back are very strong (I had some worries about them not holding items in) and everything is held securely. It is an excellent vest and I like it much better than the Nathan HPL020 that I had for a very short time.

Comments: Love this hydration pack! What I like about this pack is how easy it is to adjust. I do not like the feel of loose straps hitting my body or arms; because there are no adjustable side straps I don't have that problem. The vest is extremely functional and looks cool too. It's great for running but I think it will also make a great day hiking vest to use with friends who do not like to run.
