The Nathan Human Propulsion Laboratories (HPL) #020 Race hydration vest is engineered to keep you hydrated without slowing you down.
Nathan updated the HPL #20 Hydration Vest since last year, shaving a few ounces off the weight by using lighter materials and a lighter-weight fabrication process throughout. The mesh harness on this ultra-style running vest breathes and dries quickly to control sweat and heat, and features two-way side adjustments that allow you to perfect the fit on the fly. Simple and secure, these side adjustments and the quick-clip chest strap mean that you can get this pack on and off in a flash when you hit an aid station. A hand-held or waist belt will keep you supplied with water, but when speed is of the essence and you're covering massive distances, there's nothing like a race vest with a little extra storage. But don't take our word for it; consider that the Nathan HPL #20 Hydration Vest is a favorite of Dana Miller, four-time winner of the Wasatch 100 endurance race--there aren't many people on Earth capable of such a feat. For those new to the Nathan line, this is its lightest bladder-compatible racing vest.
The HPL #020 is a light weight runner hydration pack designed for your next hundred-miler. A 2 liter hydration bladder and dual front pockets keeps your fuel and hydration at your finger tips, while the 3-way propulsion harness and breathable mesh wall keep the pack comfortable and secure during your run.Details: 3-way Propulsion Harness 2 L Hydration Bladder with Slideseal top closure and bite valve Dual front pockets - one mesh holster, one zippered Two zippered rear compartments Vertically adjustable sternum strap with tube clip Lightweight, breathable Wall Mesh with soft perimeter binding Weight - 16 oz.
