Race vest or trail backpack specially designed to be stable on your back and not to slide back and forth while running. Whether you choose a racing vest or backpack is very personal. Race vests and backpacks come in many different sizes, ranging from 2 to more than 30 liters.
In addition to wearing comfort, the choice is also determined by the ease of use. For example, not every racing jacket can be combined with a drinking bag. And with backpacks, there is not always room for soft bottles or bottles at the front. Can you easily reach the pockets on the chest or hip belt? Some models are equipped with pole holders so that you can store or take out your poles while running.
The best racing vest, or trail backpack, does not exist. For a trail of 30 kilometers through the Ardennes, different requirements are imposed than an ultra or multi-day trail through the high mountains. Adjust your vest or backpack to your competition or trip.
