The Gear Vest Pro is designed to be small on your back, but big on storage for endurance events. We took the same tiny footprint of our Gear Vest, but added rear cargo like the Endurance Pack (but we actually made it a bit more roomy than the EP so you can really load this up!). Plus we added trekking pole attachment areas on the front and back in 8 locations.
 
This pack is fantastic for running and riding short to super long distances. The 1L/35oz included bladder in the back has a typical range for most of 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours, but you can add soft flasks up front to increase your range. The oversized chest pockets hold plus sized phones, arm warmers, glasses and such wonderfully too, and the shoulder pockets are great for backup nutrition, sunglasses, gels, electrolytes 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.

Fits soft flask in 500ml (500ml-LINK) and 600ml (600ml-LINK) in the front chest pockets. Optional Trekking Pole Hardware Link

Specs: Weight: 11.2oz, Bladder Size: 1L (35oz) included. Made: Vietnam. Sport Focus: Ride, Run, Explore. Cargo: 5L

Pocket config: Pocket 1 - 1L Bladder, Pocket 2 - Bulk Cargo, Pocket 3 - Zipper secured cargo and secure key clip.

Comfortably great fitting Gear vest

This is my 1st time using a hydration vest & I was concerned about the fit, comfort & weight. I'm 5'4", 34DD & with the 1ltr vest filled it fits comfortably, no rubbing under arms & snug with no bounce. There's also many pockets to stash your supplies & large cell phone. Other than having to search the internet on how to open & fill the bladder, the Orange Mud Gear Vest is a well made excellent product.

Gear Vest

I used to never run anything past 5ks, in distance. But once I inched closer to 13+ mile obstacle course races and trails, in cozy and swampy Florida, I knew random Aid Stations weren't going to cover it anymore.

I wanted something that fit my body, smaller athletic build, sleek enough to clear crawling obstacles, no "slush around" and rub shoulders during running and climbing-but have enough room to pack some extra fuel, hold trash and keep me hydrated.

The Gear Vest did just that! Five stars! I get compliments on it from racers and have a collection now for multiple lap Ultras.

Outstanding Gear Vest

I have used this Gear Vest Pro several times for my longer runs in San Diego. It has held up very well. It is well designed and the front pockets fit my Iphone XR. I like the extra pocket in the back if I ever needed a rain coat or another layer. They really thought of all the needs someone would require for running or biking. You forget its there sometimes.

Great for OCR

I used it for a Spartan Beast and it worked great. Plenty of pockets for nutrition and the water bladder had just enough volume to supplement what was offered on the course. It will be my go to long distance vest from now on.
