Product Summary

The Patagonia Slope Runner Endurance Vest is engineered to carry all the things you need for your next long run while remaining compact and lightweight fitting securely against your body. The vest is fully adjustable with an internal harness in addition to front and rear bungee drawstrings designed to offload weight from the back. This adjustability allows you to create a fit right for your body while minimizing any bounce.

Featuring two half-liter soft HydraPak flasks in the front, two additional front pockets, a secure back pocket which is bladder compatible and doubles as a stow sack, and easily accessible side pockets, the Slope Runner Endurance Vest is able to carry all the hydration, nutrition, and gear you need while keeping a low-profile.

There is only one review reporting that the back bottom pocket can be hard to reach but the vast majority of reviews were overwhelmingly positive. The vest hits about mid-torso so you don’t need to worry about it interfering with your stride as longer vests can.
