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.

Ideal for short distance rides/races

Have used it on a race and several short rides. Very light and comfortable. Exactly what I need. Saw a few riders during a race wearing their USWEs. Their straps looks more comfortable and cooler with a more racing style design.. Maybe Orange Mud can explore that option? I'm satisfied with my purchase but those USWEs really caught my attention.

Game changer

I have been using a waist water hydration for several years. Constantly fidgeting with it and running out of water. This pack is a game changer, better way to hydrate, carry my phone. I have to get used to the water sound, but still worth it.

Great purchase.

The Best Water Pack I've Ever Had

I didn't realize I was suffering with my old packs until I got this one. I was hesitant to get it but so happy that purchased. It is thoughtful in every way, it doesn't move, its quickly adjustable as you drink the water and I'm not carrying the weight in my lower back but between my shoulders. Game changer for me as it relates to upper body fatigue on long runs. This pack is great for trail and road! Did I mention it has no bounce? Ladies, I also want to mention I hesitated due to the one-size fitting cause boobs! but it comfortably fits with lots of adjustment to spare. GET THIS PACK!!!!

Gear vest pro

I absolutely LOVE my new gear vest. I freeze the bladder so I’ll have the cool on my back all morning. The front pockets are perfect for the flexible flasks that I use for my electrolyte drinks, and the bright green is a fun color, too. :) Five stars!
