But now that I'm temporarily in a one- car family, and not fond of being solely reliant on RideOn/WMATA, and the fact the weather is getting a little less unbearable for a hilly 6-9 mile one way run, I'm returning to run commutes for some of my travel back/forth to the office. So: what to use? Spi-belts only go so far...
I pulled the Rev 1.5 out of my running equipment box and used it on the run in today. It was extremely comfortable - the chest straps don't rub or chafe, and it doesn't constrict my movement at all. With the phone pocket, it provides easy one handed access to a phone so I can do work from my field office on the sidewalks of MD/DC.
And there's enough room in the hydration pack area (I removed the bladder and tube) for a shirt, underwear, socks, wallet, and keys.
At $70, the price is right. Here's an Amazon link.
You can see where my Nexus 5 fits in the blue pocket on the left side of the vest (for the wearer).
Not a ton of room in the main compartment, but enough for some clean clothes - even a long sleeve dress shirt + undies.
The tie system in the back is handy for cinching a jacket in the outside webbing.
