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. 

What's different with version 3.0 over 2.0? 3.0 has:

  • Solid, non stretchy, nylon straps on the front chest adjustments for a cinch tight and no slip fit.
  • We've added a structurally tough elastic in the back of the side webbing for just a bit of stretch to conform with chest breathing while still maintaining stability.
  • Trekking pole anchor points are in the front of the pack, as well as the back. 
  • Added hang loop for hanging the pack up. 
  • Change to elastic strap retainers on the side from rigid plastic.

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.

  • Weight without bladder: 8.9oz
  • Bladder size: 1L (35oz) included
  • Sport focus: Trail and ultra-running, Marathon, Mountain Biking, Triathlon, Hiking, SUP, Hiking, Skiing
  • Made: Vietnam
  • Fits soft flask in 500ml (500ml-LINK) and 600ml (600ml-LINK) in the front chest pockets.
  • Optional Trekking Pole Hardware-Link

Most versatile pack yet

I have 4 orange mud packs all for different uses, ranging from the PFV to the endurance pack. The 1 liter gear vest serves every need I have.

Fantastic!

I took my time to look at different packs and can't be any happier with the 3.0. I have packed it full on training runs and have zero issues with the fit.

Works well for running

I have a couple running vests now. This is best one so far. Rides higher and more balanced on shoulders. Don’t really care about added weight of water, so easily removal pouch. Happy so far.

Gear Vest 3.0

I have tried really hard to like hydration packs in the past, but have had no luck. I debated on buying this vest for months. Actually, 2.0 was the newest version when I started thinking about this brand. After a few adjustments with placement and fit, I have to say this was a fine purchase. No bouncing, chafing, or sloshing (again, after a few adjustments). I look forward to more and longer runs with this vest!

Great pack

Awesome pack, forgot it was there! The 1L bladder was perfect for me.

Used the bungee to carry a rain jacket and it worked great.
