    :

    Having used the first release of the Revolution since it was release – if my memory serves about three years and twelve 100 and up miles races, I was looking forward to giving the second version of the single bottle pack a test drive. I now have had an opportunity over the last couple of weeks to put some miles into it and have compiled my reactions.

    Initial Reactions:
    When the pack arrived some of the changes were immediately apparent. The material seemed lighter but still felt durable. Some of the solid material around the bottle holder was replaced with mesh as well to help remove weight. Furthermore, the upgraded back pocket seemed like it would allow for much more gear when needed, but still was able to compress when the full volume is not needed. I was very much looking forward to this added flexibility as I vividly remembered trying to cram in the mandatory kit for Fat Dog 120 in a motel room the night before and ending up attaching items to the outside of the pack with a cord stolen from another pack due to the pocket not being quite large enough. Overall, many of the items I was hoping would be improved upon seemed to be addressed and I was looking forward to trying it out.

    Run Reactions:
    The new dual front latching mechanism allowed the pack to be made to fit more snug than the previous version while still allowing enough flex than the previous single latch. Before I found myself adjusting the tightness by loosening when ascending to allow deeper breathing and tightening when descending to minimize bounce. However, this is no longer necessary. I also think that the lower back where the bottle sits was tapered in a bit more to remove any chance of rear arm swing bumping into the bottle. While this did not happen often in the past, I have not experienced it at all in the new version.

    The dual mesh pockets in the front allow for more configuration options than the previous zipper pocket. For instance, I often carry soft flasks of soda and only had one mesh pocket that allowed for this in the first version. Additionally, the higher pockets have increased volume which can be used for multiple gels. While I have not yet put the new larger back pocket to great test, with the various options available, I have no doubt that I will be able to fit any required kit.

    Two changes that I’m still on the fence about are around the pocket behind the bottle holder and the bottle holder opening itself. First, the opening of the pocket behind the bottle holder was moved to the middle of the opening rather than the top where it was located previously. Before I would cram many pouches of nutrition in this pocket and not have to worry about it falling out. While I have not yet had enough time to know if it will be an issue, with the opening being in the middle I’m a little concerned that items may escape. Second, a flap was added at the bottom of the opening where the bottle is inserted into the holder. There were a very few occasions on the first version where I would find the bottle creeping out. This was likely added to prevent this situation from occurring. Though initially I found that it made the bottle difficult to get in and out – especially with gloves or mittens in the winter time. While I was going to simply slit this additional flap to allow for easier access, I first decided to see if it would allow a little more give over time and have stored the bottle sticking half out for the last couple of weeks. Thus far this seems to have done the trick and loosened it just enough to still allow easy access while also preventing any ‘bottle creep’ on fast descents.

    Conclusions:
    Overall, I am really happy with the modifications made to the new version of the Revolution. I have always preferred bottle vests. Having the ability to spray water in hot races and quickly refill at aid stations are just a couple of reasons for this. I started out with the Kinetic with two bottles but found that in all the 100+ milers I have done, a single bottle 26oz bottle was enough to get from aid station to aid station. I have also tried the front bottle variants that have come out since and found that having the bottle tucked in the back was much more comfortable and with the improved fit of the latest version makes it almost unnoticeable. I would definitely recommend the Revolution 2.0 to anyone using the first version as well as giving it a try to some of the other front configuration vests to determine if you find it more comfortable as well.
