Susan (my bride) has decided she wants to do a stage race next year. I use a Salomon pack and love it but the cut doesn't fit her well (she's well endowed). Any suggestions on girl packs?

I personally have started using the Ultaspire packs....I have the revolution if I need to carry more and it holds the bottle on the back with no bouncing what so ever...have found while doing a race I like to have the bottle as it's easier to just unscrew and refill rather then take the entire vest off then have to open the bladder etc. I also use the new molecular belt system (the nerve and cell) you can have a smaller pack if you choose but this size fits quite a bit in it...this weekend I will start with that as well as a handheld....then at night I will use the revolution....there is no shade and sometimes different vest will chafe me so if I plan to wear a tank top then I use the belt system.

I've been wearing the UltraAspire Surge for a year, recommend to 3 women friends to buy it (they did), and LOVE it. I haven't met anyone who didn't love it. I'm also well endowed and it fits the girls, and around my midsection/obliques nicely. Doesn't bounce and has NO weight on my shoulders. I find that it helps my running posture.

Thanks for your thoughts and experience ladies. She's looking at this one from Nathan http://www.nathansports.com/hydration/race-vests/vaporshape
She to has healthy pups and is reluctant to get anything with cross chest straps. Any ideas about this one?

Well, if she's hesitant about across-chest straps, this one looks worse than the UltrAspire Surge. The straps on the Surge go just under the bra line/top of abdomen so it doesn't interfere with the chest. Looks neat though.

I have the vapor shape..actually won it from them before they made them available for sale....after receiving it I then learned of Ultaspire and wont even wear nathans anymore.

My wife wears this : http://www.ultimatedirection.com/p-600-ak-race-vest.aspxand likes it very much. She's not "well endowed" however, not sure how much of a difference it makes. At the last Ultra I ran an aid station at, I saw probably more of those vests than anything else, followed closely by the Nathan backpack/bladder system.

I have the UltrAspire Alpha and love it. The straps go below the girls and it is cut in a way that it fits around my chest nicely.

Have a goal when you get into the water. If your purpose is distance, then set your pace for endurance. If your objective is speed, then incorporate drills.

My first reaction to wearing a skirt while running was, “are you crazy?” I am no girly girl. I then tried one of the newest skirts from Nicole DeBoom’s TRIKS line and I can tell you I’m hooked.
