Are race vests frowned upon? Just bought myself one for PPP but don't want to be considered (more of) a twat...
na I'm just beng facetious.
Having nearly always worn a bumbag (and getting on with them fine) I'm just being adverse to change (generally my default setting. Odd given general political and social views!).
On a shorter race where you just need to carry the kit and maybe a bit of food I'll stick with a bumbag.
But on a longer race where you need more food/drink and potentially extra clothing, a racevest is ideal - although I did faff about with it a bit today and a few bits fell out.
Come PPP it'll all depend on weather. The bottle drops are pretty good so you don't need to carry as much food as you would on a more isolated race.
