The Nathan Intensity running vest is an excellent woman-specific pack for running medium to long distances. With a 70-ounce reservoir and pockets for gels and chews, it has plenty of capacity to cover several hours on the run year-round. Plus, it’s comfortable for hours and stable with no bounce.

Super for long road runs. This is a great pack for long road runs. It holds your ID, a gel or two, and 4 (8) ounce flasks.

The bottles are easy to get in and out of the holders and you can lash gloves and hats on the side. Full review

I've been using the Nathan Elite 2V for over a year now, and am fairly pleased with it. It holds two 22-oz bottles at an angle just above my rear end where they don't interfere with arms swing. The belt also features two removable zippered pouches for gels, snacks, etc. The pouches are big enough to accommodate my hand-held GPS with the antenna sticking… Full review
