Yonks ago I said I would review my new swanky Salamon vest:
So in Juicyju style I’ll do a list of good and bad:
Really comfy and it doesn’t rub or jiggle
Loads of pockets and zips. I especially like the open mesh pockets as it fitted my inhaler , lippy and sweets easily so I can grab them on the go.
There is a back giant pocket for stashing bigger stuff OR an extra bladder which I haven’t tried yet ( I have the bladder also, it doesn’t come with it).
It comes with two floppy bottles with suckys that fit snugly into two pockets either side. They are positioned so it’s easy to drink and also they don’t get in the way so you don’t know they are even there!
Get this.... you also get a golden foil blanket.... wow! So if you get stuck and need to keep warm, then bingo... and likewise you might just want to bling it up.
It’s very lightweight.
Price.... it’s really expensive.
There are various surplus strings that seem to flop about and get in the way. I’m not sure what they are for.
I don’t think the side pocket zips are very good quality. On my old one they got rusty and wouldn’t work, and I had an energy bar stuck in there going off for months.
I hope that’s helpful!
