USWE understands that having your running vest bounce all over the place as you send it down your favorite trail is exceptionally annoying. To combat this dreaded "bounce" they created their "No Dancing Monkey Vest System," technology, which, thankfully, is as effective as it is oddly named. The USWE Pace 2 is minimalistic, highly breathable, lightweight, and still feature-filled. The two included soft flasks are perfectly placed so you won't be chasing after the straws every time you just want a little water. Stash pockets in the front along with 2 zippered side pouches give quick access to what you need between aid stations, or between the car and the summit. Whether you're boulder hopping or racing down a crazy fast descent, you can quickly stash your poles - in front! Transition time is limited with this slick system because it won't interfere with your stride or your access to flasks and pockets. Circling back to the subject of bouncing, USWE is obsessed with their running vests being totally bounce-free. To further accomplish this task, they have also created their, "No Bounce Compression Compartment," which utilizes side compression straps to snug down your vest without restricting movement or labored breathing. If you like dancing monkeys and bouncy houses you might want to move on. If you prefer fast days on trail with easy access to all you need while also enjoying a smooth ride, USWE gets it and built the Pace 2 just for you.
