Looking for a small pack that holds 1L/35oz of fluids, the ability to carry a plus sized phone, backup front pocket for a soft flask or other gear, and shoulder pockets for food and essentials? This is the pack! Its tiny size is wide ranging in fit, and high performing for tackling everything from a lunch time run, marathon, triathlon, endurance ride, and more. 

The key to fit, cinch the sides first, not the front, until you feel the pack anchor on your shoulders. Then adjust the front harness as needed so you can breathe during movement.

During any sport the Gear Vest is extremely stable to torsional, up and down, and fast movements. It tracks with your body and is very comfortable to wear. Storage up front is designed around 500ml or 600ml soft flasks.

Great Pack

I have been marathon training consistently for 2 years. I was looking for a better pack for long runs. The 1 liter bladder in the back is much lighter and easier to handle on the 15 plus mile runs. Using water bottles in the front distributes the weight very well while still giving you 2 liters total. It sits higher on your back than other packs which really helps with comfort on your back. The only issue I have is that it doesn't stay tight across my chest. I am constantly re-tightening it throughout long runs. I have tried all of the recommendations that Orange Mud offered and what others have offered in reviews and online, but it still doesn't stay tights.

Endurance training

Given that running has mostly become a solo sport there aren’t many water stops and this more than fills that gap. Now I can run longer without worry about my next stop. Very light weight and hasn’t changed my stride as I hardly notice the weight.
