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

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.

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

Orange Mud Gear Vest 2L

I love this pack for mid to long training runs (15-20 miles for me). I use 1L of water in bladder and two 600ml soft flasks in the front pockets. This pack fits awesome and is perfectly balanced on the shoulders. It’s also a great pack for smaller women, I have a friend that has a hard time fitting into any pack and this pack fits her perfectly! I’m 6’-3” / 190 so you can see that this pack fits all sizes and shapes.

Better than I'd hoped

I looked at as many online reviews as I could find, before ordering this vest. Being a little busty and not big of stature, I was concerned about how it might fit. After wearing it around the house a few times, my first run with it was for a 12-mile event. It was perfect for my hydration/storage needs and really comfortable. 2L water, iPod, salt tabs, phone, car keys, wallet, and a spare top; had these things with me without jingling, bulk or discomfort. It felt light and didn't hinder my modest effort (I'm not fast at this distance). I'm very happy with this vest and recommend it whenever asked about my choice for hydration and storage for runs.

Best pack

I have a lot of packs. Most of them are great for this or that but not for all/most trail runs. Enter the Gear Vest 2L...This pack is damn near perfect and hands down my go to. It’s a tiny foot print on your back while still allowing you to carry plenty of food and gear! It fits great and chafing is never an issue. Love it. So perfect pack is covered...now if anyone could ever come out with my perfect shoe!! 🤪

Just What I Needed

I love this pack, it is just the right size, super lightweight and minimalist. This allows me to adjust what I carry; for shorter runs I can just have a bladder in the back and phone, gels in the front or for longer runs have 2 flasks in front and the bladder in back.

The weight is distributed well and doesn't chafe or hang low, it fits on your upper back which is exactly where you want the weight to be. The open sides were an attraction for me in comparison to other brands, less material to keep cool on hot days. The side straps can be adjusted and tucked in on the move in addition to the two chest elastic straps, this allows you to adjust for a perfect fit.

there is a total of 6 front chest pockets and the rear pocket which is enough storage for my needs.

Finally, Orange Mud has great customer service and I love getting products designed and refined by athletes and adventurers. Quality kit.
