• There is a 2L Crux reservoir for hydration. It is the CamelBak’s Pureflow bladder, with a wide screw-top opening. I found it pretty easy to open and fill. 
  • The back and the straps of the vest are equipped with 3D vent mesh, providing breathability, lightness and comfort.
  • There are two ultra-wide shoulder straps with semi-secure zippered pockets. I loved getting easy access to all my essentials (phone, snacks, keys, etc.)
  • The vest has reflectivity for low light safety on evening rides. Unintentionally, I own many dark clothes, so it is a must for me. 
  • There is one large zippered pocket for the hydration bag but another deep zippered pocket for other stuff (tools, light jacket, etc.). There is another pocket in the front and a small one for tools organization. 
  • The vest is designed to sit above your jersey pockets, so it is not compromising the accessibility of your pocket if you require additional storage. 
  • You can adjust the vest with dual sternum straps. They offer a great fit whether or not you have a large bust. 
  • This vest is made from lightweight 420D recycled nylon. CamelBak describes it as rugged enough for big days in the mountains, but stays breathable for longer rides.
