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.

Awesome pack- 1:I got no neck pain whatsoever the following day in my trapezius muscles

2: I was nice and cool because of the material it breathes brilliantly

3: I didn’t even feel like I had a pack on!

4: pockets set out well and easily accessible especially the bottom back 2 - good for gloves and food - the main pack on the back is good for the things you may need the least likely I.e waterproof jacket and pants - spare base/midlayer & emergency kit !
