not familiar with the Asics one ...

but think you cant go wrong with either a Salomon or Ultimate Direction ...

for Ultimate Direction ... you'd probably have to take the PB Vest 2.0 (newer version in blue ... the v1.0 was red)

to have a better look at both these brands, you may drop by Velocity

Salomon has a boutique there ...

you go Key Power International (KPI) for the UD

would not recommend Nathan as i read it bounces and rides quite a bit

you certainly one to choose one that doesn't ...

cheers

If you need to carry work attire and shoes back, you probably need a daypack instead of the usual hydration bag. You don't need a hydration bladder as I presume you will be running along the streets and so should be able to purchase water. Most daypack will also come with side pocket for putting in water bottles. I have a North Face DayPack which I use if I need to run longer distance and which can fit in everything including a laptop.

However, for running home from work, I usually don't bring back the work stuff, just my wallet, keys and phones. I carry a pouch to hold all these and get my water from the stores and public toilets along the way.

Actually you don't need to carry a backpack and ran.

I suggest you keep your working shirt and trouser in the company locker.

Then on the last working day of the week collect them all home to wash. Hahaha.

Or you can choose to ran one day and rest on the other day.

Good idea, should buy more office clothings and shoes instead.
