Gear Vest, 2L (1L Bladder, 2L total cargo): Ideal for running, biking, triathlon

$109.95

Rated 4.9 out of 5
75 Reviews

Version 2.0 has a new front chest harness that is about 1.5" longer, added a dual sternum slider, and added front trash pockets. The new slider gives more adjustability with ease, and the longer chest pockets mean any size flask up to 600ml will fit great, plus sized phones are super secure, and there is plenty of room for gear.

Gear Vest-Wide from Orange Mud on Vimeo.

Who did we design this for? Runners, riders, hikers, paddlers, skiers and more. 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 600ml soft flasks (note that the new 450ml soft flasks are taller and don't fit as well), gloves, nutrition, or big smart phones. The rear bladder compartment can hold some extra gear around the bladder, but is focused on speed and breathability. So not a lot of storage there. The shock cord on the back works great for holding a jacket or light layer. It's loaded with fun features that provide quick accessibility to gear on your chest, shoulders, and back.

  • Weight without bladder: 8.9oz
  • Bladder size: 1L (35oz) included
  • Made in: Vietnam
  • Sport focus: Trail and ultra-running, Mountain Biking, Hiking, SUP, Hiking, Skiing

Light, minimal, and lasting

Let's face it, gear is expensive. When you buy gear you want something that's going to last, fits your needs, fits your body, and looks great. This 100% does that. As a bigger runner vests are always such a pain, but the fabrics used in this vest form to your body type. Meaning no bounce, or rub. It's the perfect size to go light and fast those days you're just wanting to after it, but has enough storage capacity you could easily get some 50K and up with it.

Now that it's raining season in the PNW I constantly have a list of items to take with me on runs, and this small, light pack, holds everything. 2 bottles, phone, headlamp, buff, gels, rain jackets, arm sleeves, easily all fits. This pack has hands down become my favorite piece of gear.

My Summit Buster!

I’ve claimed endless summits with this bad boy. It carries enough water & Nutrition up front and in the bag.

Light & useful

I used the vest for my first of 3 half marathons and it worked very well. Comfortable and utilitarian. No complaints.

My new favorite

I'm so mad I waited so long to buy this! I was looking for something that sits up high on my back because others that I have sit on the small of my back and feel like they weigh me down. This is the perfect vest with plenty of storage space. I could not be happier with my purchase. It's has worked out great for a long run and some ultras.
