I’ve had the vest for six weeks now and have used it 11 times on runs of about 20km. I can just squeeze my iPhone 8 in the top right zipped pocket and carry 2 x 500ml softflasks, one on either side, which still leaves the medium size pockets under the arms and the large pouch on the back free for additional gear when the weather turns inclement. I wear medium running shirts and the S/M vest fits perfectly, with little tension needing to be applied to the chest straps to ensure that the vest doesn’t move about at all. I tend to consume half the softflask on the right, then half of the flask on the left to prevent the vest becoming unbalanced. Once running, I soon forget that I’ve got it on. It’s been very hot & humid this week and I’m surprised at how well it breaths.

I trail run with my dog and also do some path clearing for the local council while I'm at it and so I need to carry a fair bit of stuff with me, such as a Montane 500ml soft flask, an extending lead, pooh bags, secatuer's, mobile phone and a rain jacket. The Gecko has plenty of room for all of this and more besides. The fact that none of the main compartments are zipped is great, I can just reach in and pull stuff out as I need it and nothing bounces around or falls out. For example, I like to run in a cap most of the time but occasionally I want to take it off and stash it somewhere - the main open pocket on the back is great for this, I can reach over my shoulder and stash it or grab it really easily. A couple of very minor issues are 1. The neck opening is not as wide as I'd like it to be - when I wear a t-shirt I can feel the edging sitting on my skin at the sides of my neck which is a little irritating at first, as you think it's going to chafe but it doesn't, and after a while you forget about it; 2. The only chest pocket that's big enough for my phone is a little bit too big and so that does bounce around unless I pack it with something else (normally a handkerchief, which I always take with me anyway). Overall, I'm really pleased with the Gecko, it's a superb vest.
