The material and design were great. The size is S/XS - a touch too small for me with a 29" waist and the Velcro straps at their max extension. The inner pocket would not fit my iPhone in its case but the main pouch would and could also fit some snacks.

I've worn a Nathan and also purchased but didn't keep an Osprey Dyna. This UD Vesta is my all time favorite. It has plenty of space to stash snacks and supplies, doesn't rub uncomfortably on my arms (as another did), and fits my iPhone 8+ in the back. Training for a 25K trail run and I expect this pack to be perfect for every adventure along the way.

I forgot to mention in my last review that I am a 34DD, 5'7", 140 lbs. and the XS/S fit perfectly. I tried both sizes but the XS/S was the best.

I love this vest! I am a trail runner and needed something to replace my Nathan water bottle belt (it is annoying to run with and I wanted to be able to carry more water). I tried this one, the Nathan Vapor Airess Race Vest, and Salomon's S-Lab Sense Set vest. All three were comfy, but the Ultimate Direction had the best adjustability for fit. The Salomon vest was nice and light but I wanted a pouch in the back for a camelbak/bladder. The Nathan vest did not have as many adjustable fit options and there were too many tags and things bouncing around (I found that annoying and distracting). It was light and comfortable, though, and I love the pink color. The UD Ultra Vesta is the one for me, though - it's light, has room for a bladder, fits my cell phone perfectly (and it doesn't bounce!), the color is nice, and it's comfortable when wearing just a sports bra. I like the two zipper pockets on the back, too - I can put a few gels/bars and chapstick in them and nothing bounces. I can't recommend this vest enough.

Phone fits in the front and so so the gels. The soft bottles have a hard top area that is painful as it digs into the chest. The vest still bounces and in order to keep the bottles from bouncing up and down you need to make it too tight to breathe. Unfortunately it is not useful for me.

Lightweight, holds it all from phone to keys to Gu's and anything in between. Doesn't move around, so no chafing during your run, hike, or even a day at the amusement park!

The belt is way too long. It looks sturdy (but not too heavy) and good for running/hiking, but too thick to keep under your clothes for traveling.

A note if you want to carry a smart phone in this: yes, the fabric breathes, but it also puts a thick layer of moisture on the phone's screen if you sweat at all (in Florida, that is most of the time). It also is much more violent green than it looks in the photo...lightweight and it works, but not a great pack for me.

This belt is good. It's pockets are big enough for an iPhone 5 and a small card wallet. It is low-profile and doesn't flap when running. My only complaint is that the belt tends to ride up over time. I end up folding the elastic band from my shorts over the top of the belt to keep it in place. I think if there was a little more elastic to the belt webbing, it would stay put.
