Orange Mud Gear Vest Review

  The Orange Mud Gear Vest fit the bill. A small high riding vest with pockets on the front for whatever I need access to without slowdown, a small 1 L bladder included, additional pockets for nutrition bars, satellite tracking device, etc. Orange Mud products I have used have exceeded my expectations and this one has become my absolute favorite running vest. Because it rides high and is small very little of my torso is covered which means I can stay cooler in the heat. Fit and adjustment is easy and it stays like I set it. Comfortable to a point of not even noticing that I am wearing it regardless of how full I fill it and I can fit a surprising amount of gear in and on it. I absolutely recommend this vest with no reservations for anyone looking for a small vest, with all the essential features, quality construction, quality materials and really a great price. #orangemud #biggerthanthetrail #BTTT -Jeff Miller  UESCA Certified Ultrarunning Coach RRCA Certified Adult Running Coach  S

Will it be less bothersome with experience?’ This conversation had me decide to look and see if there was anything that I was missing in my understanding because at that moment all I could say was “I just do it”. But that
