The pursuit of marginal gains and every last percentage point of performance started in cycling but quickly came to running. And promptly stalled at the shoes.
We knew there were gains to be discovered in running apparel, and in the ELITE Race Vest 3.0 we’ve redefined what a race singlet could – and should – be.
At 47g in size medium, the Race Vest 3.0 is seriously light, but that’s only half the story. It fits cut-throat close so that sweat transfers efficiently away from the skin for effective cooling and unlike many fabrics, the open-weave Italian mesh retains very little moisture. That means that even when it’s entirely saturated with sweat, the Race Vest 3.0 remains enviably light and comfortable.
The slim fit and bonded seams don’t just help in the battle against body heat, they help reduce aerodynamic drag and virtually eliminate chafing, to the point that you might find yourself double checking you’re actually wearing a vest. Light, tight, and proven on the elite racing circuit, the SOAR Race Vest 3.0 is a marginal gain you’ll barely feel
– till you stop your watch.
(And when the race is over, place your vest in the new SOAR Delicates Wash bag, now supplied as standard with the Elite Race Vest 3.0)

The SOAR Race Vest 3.0 is ultra lightweight and comfortable to wear. It has a more tailored fit than other vests, which tend to be baggy on the average distance runner.

Best vest I’ve ever worn. Light as a feather, exceptionally comfortable, breathable and washes like a dream couldn’t have asked for any more.

Great vest - really lightweight and gives you that extra edge you need when looking for a fast time in a race.
Alex Leprêtre 5k PB: 14:34 — ELITE Race Vest 3.0
A ridiculously lightweight vest, it's nigh on non-existent, love the cut and tapered bottom section. Ripe to race.
Brahma Pochee 5k PB: 14:58 — ELITE Race Vest 3.0
Great seamless vest that feels great to wear but feels even better to run in. An amazing vest which you cannot feel on your skin and feels like wearing nothing. Ultra light and ultra fast.
Will De Doncker 5k PB: 15:32 — ELITE Race Vest 3.0
First thing noticed when I took it out of the pack was how light it was; light yet the material felt durable. The fit was great, barely knew I was wearing it whilst racing!
Alex Crossland 5k PB: 14:44 — ELITE Race Vest 3.0

The SOAR Race Vest 3.0 is so light and breathable that you don't notice you're wearing it when racing.
Henry Murdoch 5k PB: 15:28 — ELITE Race Vest 3.0
The SOAR vest is the lightest and fastest vest I have ever raced in. The lightweight material is extremely comfortable, and you hardly notice you are even wearing a vest as soon as you start running.
Barnaby Walker 5k PB: 15:54 — ELITE Race Vest 3.0
An extremely breathable, light vest makes all the difference when you’re grafting out on the road or track in the summer season. SOAR’s Race Vest 3.0 has proven just that.
Andres Chau 5k PB: 15:48 — ELITE Race Vest 3.0
Super light, well-fitting and comfortable - first vest I've forgotten I'm wearing [until I took it off in the morning after the post-race pints].
