Basham Race Vest

(4 customer reviews)


The Basham Race Vest is engineered from the specifications of professional Ultrarunner Amanda Basham. She had very specific requirements because the pack needed to be able to tackle some of the most prestigious races. The Basham’s defining characteristic is its incredibly small footprint which reduces weight and increases heat dissipation. Despite its size, it can carry up to 2 bottles as well as other accessories. This pack includes an UltraFlask 550 Hybrid Bottle that can fit horizontally in the insulated compartment and has room for an alternative bottle in the upper quick stash pocket. The quick stash pocket is built from 4-way stretch mesh for maximum capacity and features a magnetic closure to keep contents secure yet accessible. An additional quick stash pocket is featured on top of the insulated bottle compartment. This additional outer pocket remains functional even when the inner pocket is full. This pack features our new UltrAcool Light Mesh. This pack’s shoulder straps are narrow, have on the go access pockets, and can carry a large cell phone. Adjustment straps provide a perfect fit. One size fits most.

    i just ran 22 miles in the Basham. And I have to say I love this vest. Very light weight, and comfortable. I was concerned about reaching back to grab my bottle while running. But it was easy easy. To grab and put back in. I definitely recommend this vest for racing a 50miler ++ with aid stations of course. Highly recommend it . Plus it’s so cute 🙂

    After years of trying belt after belt and never finding one that didn’t bounce, I decided to try a vest. I sure picked the right one. It’s light weight, has storage a plenty, super streamlined, no chafing spots, and really cute. It is super adjustable so you can make it fit just right. I recommend this vest for all runners.

    This vest has allowed me to get a snug fit with no bounce! I don’t even notice I’m wearing the vest while running. Highly recommend!

    Love, love, love this vest! The design is minimalist, but there are enough pockets for all your stuff and a large enough water bottle to make it through a longer run or the next food station to refill. And, the water bottle is soft so squeezing contents out is easy-peasy vs. those stiff plastic things that are useless. Highly recommend.
