Ive been looking for a way to carry a small amount of water (about 12-15oz), because my running belt only held 3oz, and I found that it was extremely helpful during 10K runs. I found a picture of the PFV and researched it extensively until I figured out what it was and who made it. I was a little hesitant at the price but then I saw that demo models were selling for about half. I figured at $50 I had to give it a try. While I have been carrying Camelbaks around since the mid-90s I sweat a lot and hate having that much extra stuff on my torso. The PFV is small enough that it doesn't cause any extra amount of heat / sweat build-up, and supplies enough water for more than 6 miles even on really hot days. I even found myself wishing I had worn it instead of my 50oz Camelbak Flash-Flo on a recent bike ride. The small size of even the XL fit me fine (Im 6-2 and 230lbs), but it is a little awkward to don and doff. There are minor tweaks I would like to see but overall it is very well thought out, designed, and made.
