Product Summary

The Salomon Advanced (ADV) Skin 5 Hydration Vest breathes, stretches, and wraps around you, giving you the freedom to move as needed. Designed for quick and easy access to hydration during endurance activities, this vest keeps your water in place while you move as needed.

Available in sizes XS through XL, you might not initially think this vest has the most inclusive sizing. However, many running vests are one-size-fits-most or are only available in small, medium, and large, so we love to see the additional options in the Salomon ADV 5.

This vest has a liquid capacity of 1 liter and a total gear capacity of 5 liters. It features six outer pockets plus the main compartment where you can store larger items, such as an extra layer of clothing.
