Editor’s choice. Sold with 2L bladder

This new version of Ultraspire’s Alpha vest features innovative elastic-bungee chest straps that expand and contract with the chest’s natural movement, keeping the fit comfortable and extremely secure. A bungee drawstring cinches down extra space in the back, minimizing bounce, and the straps, sides and back panels are made entirely of light, breathable mesh. This is a race vest for when you don’t want to notice you’re wearing one.

Despite its minimal feel, the Alpha 2.0 packs enough storage for most runners’ needs, with a rear compartment that fits a two-liter bladder, a stretchy back pouch fastened with magnets for easy mid-run accessibility and two small water-bottle pockets on the front straps.
