Ultimate Direction says:
The new Marathon Vest v2 is the best solution for the vast majority of runners who need a lightweight running vest any day, anywhere. The materials have been upgraded to be lighter, more minimal, and great-looking in its new black colorway. Adjustability is greatly improved with the Comfort Glide fit system inspired by the super popular Comfort Cinch™.
Ultimate Direction's Marathon Vest V2 is all about providing lightweight, minimal storage options for racing. The design of the vest is versatile with a number of small pockets for stowing gels, snacks, accessories and hydration. One large mesh pocket with a stretch mesh front provide the majority of the storage capacity along with a small Velcro closure pocket on the rear. A few small pockets on the shoulder straps allow you to access smaller items easily. The close cut and minimal features allow you to get a comfortable fit. Using the same perforated mesh as the Access Belts weight is kept to a minimum.
The vest comes with two 300ml hard flasks to provide an option for hydrating while out. There are two larger pockets behind where these flasks are which can easily hold 500ml soft flasks or you could use a hydration bladder in the main pocket on the rear of the vest. The versatility is brilliant and certainly allows you to use this vest for more runs than you might expect.
