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

Greatest pack I have owned

I have had multiple different sized bags from multiple manufacturers. They either didn't have ample storage or were too heavy/bulky. Finally after years of lower back pain while biking, I decided to go more minimalist, and picked up the gear vest. I expected to drop a couple items from my pack to make it all fit. What actually happened though, is everything from my pack fit and I even threw in a headlamp. Granted it doesn't all fit in the one main compartment, but its actually more balanced by spreading the gear out anyway. All in all, I love the pack. The fact it sits tight and higher on my back, I no longer get back pain from a bouncing pack. I'm a happy guy.

A great Pack

This is the first hydration pack I've ever bought and I took a chance by ordering this online sight unseen. After looking at reviews and reading on it, I took a chance and I'm so glad I did. I've used this for running and cycling and love it! I barely feel it there during runs. My only drawback is that I wish it was more adjustable for smaller women. The straps adjust really well but I'm left with a lot of excess which sometimes gets in the way

Perfect size for medium to long runs!

LOVE IT!!! I like to run hands free but don't want to wear a huge pack for my 90-150 minute runs. This pack is perfect for that time frame! Very comfy. Holds just the right amount of fluid. Has adequate pocket space. I often run with and iPhone 8+, GoPro camera, and 2-3 gels. It holds all of that well. My only wish is for one of the pockets to have a zipper.

Great for racing and shorter trail runs

I wore my new gear vest for Ragnar Trail Tahoe this past weekend and it performed amazingly! I could barely tell that I had it on. It stayed in place with no sloshing or sliding though winding switchbacks and some serious vertical climbs. It did get quite dirty (I got the white one) so I threw it in the wash with all my other filthy trail clothes and it held up great. Came out looking like new.
