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.

Good for mountain biking

I love this pack for mountain biking, it’s small enough that it doesn’t get in the way of my back jersey pockets. And I can keep my phone & glasses in the front pockets for easy access.

Camel Brown

I love these packs. I have white, black and had to buy the brown. Perfect size for my mileage and the pockets fit all my essentials. Wish we could make them with some insulation so my water stayed colder longer but it’s not a big deal for me. 🖤🧡

Favorite pack thus far!

This is my third vest purchased from OM. Not because the other ones were faulty in any way. Truth be told I fell in love with this color as soon as it came out! But since my other Gear Vest was like new, I felt guilty getting another one. I finally but the bullet and got it. As far as functionality, I love the extra pocket in the back as well as the zipper to stash away important stuff. I really love the overall comfort and feel of it. I’m already looking into getting the all-white gear vest! 😝

Excellent vest pro!

I have tried other hydration systems and really like how this one stays snug and doesn’t slosh around. Once I get going I hardly feel it there.

This carry’s 1 liter I would like to have a 2 liter bladder for longer runs.

Running vest

I needed something light and versatile to tackle my first half marathon. I need to stay hydrated, due to a medical condition, during the 13.1 mile run and my vest did the job! I never noticed I had it on and the spout to drink out of was easy and didn’t require a lot of effort from me. I had pockets to carry gels and extra hydration packets. The front phone pocket had zero problems carrying my iPhone 11 and at the end it superseded my expectations and I was more than satisfied with my purchase.

The customer service was excellent. I spoke with Orange Mud, via IM, and explained I needed this item rather quickly. I was running on Saturday and Sunday and needed my vest ASAP. They communicated with the warehouse and I received my vest on Thursday, one day earlier than promised!

Now I have a worthy vest to assist me tackle the Spartan Trifecta! Don’t hesitate, order yours now and you will not be disappointed.

One freaking happy customer/user
