Typical Price: $130
Where to buy: runningwharehouse.com
This is a great vest for racing. This vest eliminates a few key problems that I have had with other race vests. I typically struggle to reach items that I have placed in the back pockets of most race vests. The Bronco sits higher up on the back so that I can actually retrieve items from the back of the pack without having to take the vest off. Also, it covers a smaller are on my back and since it sits higher up I get better air flow on my back and don’t retain heat as much as I would with other packs. The vest is also not as constrictive as some other that I have owned allowing me to breathe easier with the vest on.
Sizing: True to size
Comparison to Other Brands: It really feels like an extension of the body. I have typically used other UltrAspire packs or Ultimate Direction packs in the past and this is far more comfortable.
Durability: Not sure on durability at this time. I have only had this vest for about one month but everything seems very durable so far.
Changes for the next model: Maybe add a built-in holder for poles
Would you recommend it? Yes I would recommend this to a friend.
Keeping it Honest – did you get this gear for free? No, but I get a discount on their products
