Do they come with the hydration bladder included? Or just hydration bladder compatible?

They're a good thing cruiser - as noods says, tobpick them up they feel heavy when loaded but once on you dont notice the weight due to the distribution around your body!

I would have to say the flight vest is the best piece of riding gear I've ever bought, without a doubt. 

I've weighed mine fully loaded and it comes to 7kg, when I used to carry that in a backpack it was a huge burden when the going got tough. 

You can keep all the most commonly used stuff in the front pockets like small flatblade, t bar, allen keys, spanners, spare levers and the best thing is being able to sneak in a quick snack while doing cornerman.

A 3ltr bladder fits in no problem too.

I've worn out 2 of these but was thinking of trying the klim or troylee design vests as i seem to have a bad run with the ogio zippers packing it in. Vests are both still good but front lower pocket zips and back side one are stuffed and stitched with zip ties. Really frustrating about the poor quality zips,chinese made cost cutting.
The klim and tld are alot dearer so might just go another ogio at this price.
Disposable item for me at about 18 mnths to 2yrs max.

Interesting Cluffie... Touch wood I haven't had any zipper issues at this point, coming up on 2.5 years I guess....
Mind you, mine wouldn't get used as much as yours!

Zips love silicone lube....

Does this work on your flight vest or are you talking zips in general? I've found it to attract dust and grit and not make the ogio zips work any better. Imo the zipper brand needs to be changed. The zips camelback use never have issues from my experience. It's not economical to replace zips either. I would willingly pay more if the zips were better.
Rrp is to expensive for what you get but this deal is ok for me,so i'm getting another,thanks Dustin.

poor quality fine tooth zips are the downfall of all these types of products unfortunately, coarse teeth zips are much more durable and easier to keep clean but they are also more expensive so manufacturers wont use them if they can get away with it.  As Cluffie said in my experience silicon spray leaves a sticky film that attracts dust and dirt, i use dry glide and it seems to work ok. If you have an expensive piece of kit and you want the zips  to last they need regular cleaning.

Cluffie try Walkalong - 515 Camberwell rd Camberwell. 9889-2800 Micheal. He has repaired and put zips in leathers for me and always repairing leathers for racers as well as luggage. Quality work at very reasonable prices.
