The Spry 3.0 is a minimalist race vest that can be utilized in a variety of settings and skill levels. The updates to the award winning Spry series improve functionality, comfort, and durability. The back panel now has a sweat proof liner under polyester mesh to keep the contents in the main compartment dry but still breathable during longer adventures. A new zippered sweat proof pocket has been included alongside the main compartment for items you want secure and dry. The main compartment is a 4-way stretch mesh designed to expand or compress to the load and carries a 1 liter bladder. A magnetic closure on the main compartment keeps contents secure and provides quick accessibility. The harness features 6 pockets that are accessible on the go making the Spry 3.0 perfect for a variety of adventures. The front hydration pockets will comfortably carry any of our bottles and each side has an elastic strap to hold bottle straws in place. The back panel includes a shock cord to carry extra clothing if needed. The UltrAcool Light Mesh on the shoulders and harness of the Spry 3.0 makes this pack very durable and lightweight. One size fits most.

    I have (and LOVE) the Alpha 4.0 vest for all my marathon training miles, but I wanted a lighter alternative for half marathon training. The Spry 3.0 race vest is a great alternative. It sits higher on my back than the Alpha which I found really comfortable. I bought the 1 liter reservoir and it is the perfect amount of fluid (but if I need more on really hot days, there is plenty of room to carry an additional soft flask in one of the large front pockets. Just like the Alpha, it does not bounce at all. The ONLY reason I didn’t rate it 5 stars is the extra trash pockets in front don’t cinch closed and I placed my car key in one and it fell out. Now I keep my key in the back pocket clipped to the key clip the way it is intended. My go to vest is still the Alpha 4.0, but this Spry vest is a great alternative when I want to keep things a bit “lighter”.

    Love the Spry. This is my 3rd Spry vest, having had the 2.0 & 2.5 before this. I love the Spey because it is small. I fill the I liter bladder with straight water, and use the front pocket(s) for a mix (liquid IV for me). I like the magnetic pocket. I found the elastic pocket in front of the left shoulder too high for a phone; it’ll fit, but uncomfortable position. If I think I’m going to use my phone, I put it in one of the front pockets. Otherwise, it goes in the new rear waterproof pocket. Nice addition. The reason I give it 4 stars is that this ‘smallest’ vest seems to be bigger/longer than previous versions. If I need more space, I’ll take a bigger vest. I want my smallest vest to be as small as possible. If I could give it 4.5 stars I would. Ultraspire – make the Spry 4.0 smaller?
