Running Vest capable of holding 1litre bottles
Hi. For reasons I have not yet figured out yet I have entered Ultra Mirage this year.
I need to be able to carry 2litres of water but am not a fan of bladders. Can anyone recommend a vest or pack that can accommodate 1 litre flasks?
Thanks. Richard

Hi Richard,

You might find this video helpful: https://www.runultra.co.uk/Articles/January-2016/Packing-for-a-multiday-ultra-race

It focuses on packing for multi-day races, but the picture at the top of the page may give you some ideas for ways to carry more water. You might also find it helpful to browse the packs available at: https://www.myracekit.com/

This site is geared up for races where you need to carry a lot of supplies, and some of them look to have space for bigger bottles.

Would you like me to put a tweet out tomorrow to encourage our followers to share their ideas?

the new inov8 pack can hold 4x 500ml bottles but it will be at the expense of losing a bit of pack space

may find some of the raidlight packs able to carry sufficient amount of bottles as well.

I would go for Raidlight Olmo bottle holders. Fit to shoulder straps of any rucksack. The holders come with 750ml bottle with extended drinking tube for hands-free hydration. But the holders will take any standard water bottle so will take 1 litres bottle if you really need to.
