Salomon Active Skin 4 Running Hydration Vest Unisex, Ideal for Trail Running, Trekking and Hiking, Compatible with Hydration Bladder 1.5L
About this deal
The snug Sensifit vest design, soft fabrics and inner mesh maximize comfort, while the new adjustment system holds the vest where you want it. The majority of vests come in at least two sizes, with some available in up to five for both men and women. But as is common in outdoor gear, it can be difficult to find options beyond the small-to-large spectrum. For larger body sizes, the REI Co-op Swiftland 5 is the only vest we reviewed that offers both XL/1X and 2X/3X sizing. The Nathan VaporAir 3.0 comes in a 1X to 3X option, and a few others here have XL offerings. We hope that this is a sign of things to come, and look forward to seeing more manufacturers expand their size ranges. Bottles range in size from about 250 to 600 milliliters and are a popular form of hydration for supported races, short runs, and routes near lakes, rivers, or other bodies of water where you can replenish your supply throughout the day. The advantages over hydration reservoirs are clear: Bottles are much easier to refill and don’t require that you take off your vest to do so, and they allow you to monitor how much remaining liquid you have far better than a reservoir. Finally, most runners carry two bottles (one on each shoulder strap), which allows them to drink two different liquids—often water and an electrolyte fluid—and balance the weight.

Price comparisons are based on the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") or Original Selling Price. Actual sales may not have occurred at this price. The differences between the Active Skin Vs Adv Skin are not huge in my opinion. The Adv Skin is a little bit lighter than the Active Skin and is probably more suit to trail races who want to shed every gram of weight. As already mentioned above, this Salomon Active Skin 8 Set comes with 2 x 500ml soft flasks, which are easy to clean and dry after use. If you need to carry extra water because you’re venturing well away from civilisation, this vest has a hydration bladder compartment. The compartment can hold a 1.5 or 2L water bladder, so in total, this race vest can hold 3 litres of water.

Precision Fit : The snug Sensifit vest has been developed using soft fabrics and inner mesh for optimal comfort, with an adjustment system to keep your vest just where you want it Breathability is also a high point with this vest. The mesh fabric construction allows heat to escape and allows any natural wind or cool breeze to permeate and cool your body down.What we like: More than double the storage of the ADV Skin 5 for ultras, long unsupported efforts, and winter running. Before we get into the nitty gritty, it’s important to note that even the lightest, softest, and best-fitting vests will still be a slight burden on your stride. In fact, one of our gear testers resisted wearing a vest for so long that she ran her first ultra (a 41-mile race) with handheld bottles and gels stuffed down her shirt. But she’s since changed her ways (and so have we), and the good news is that today’s vests are more comfortable than ever.
