Looking for a small pack that holds 1L/35oz of fluids, the ability to carry a plus sized phone, backup front pocket for a soft flask or other gear, and shoulder pockets for food and essentials? This is the pack! Its tiny size is wide ranging in fit, and high performing for tackling everything from a lunch time run, marathon, triathlon, endurance ride, and more. 

What's different with version 3.0 over 2.0? 3.0 has:

  • Solid, non stretchy, nylon straps on the front chest adjustments for a cinch tight and no slip fit.
  • We've added a structurally tough elastic in the back of the side webbing for just a bit of stretch to conform with chest breathing while still maintaining stability.
  • Trekking pole anchor points are in the front of the pack, as well as the back. 
  • Added hang loop for hanging the pack up. 
  • Change to elastic strap retainers on the side from rigid plastic.

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.

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 500ml or 600ml soft flasks.

  • Weight without bladder: 8.9oz
  • Bladder size: 1L (35oz) included
  • Sport focus: Trail and ultra-running, Marathon, Mountain Biking, Triathlon, Hiking, SUP, Hiking, Skiing
  • Made: Vietnam
  • Fits soft flask in 500ml (500ml-LINK) and 600ml (600ml-LINK) in the front chest pockets.
  • Optional Trekking Pole Hardware-Link

Great Product

I bought this to take long longer weekend training runs for better liquid carrying capacity, quantity of pockets, and ease of access compared to my hydration belt.

After a couple weeks I can say I absolutely love this product. The bladder is super easy to clean and use. The materials all feel high quality. The fit and stability is great (I’m 5’-10” 170 lb). The ease of use while running is awesome. Can easily store a couple gels, phone, keys, and gloves/jacket when need be without bouncing or losing anything. Heat management seems to be non-issue.

The only upgrade I made was a magnetic clip for the hose mouthpiece based on others’ reviews before I bought the pack. I put the clip on the top chest strap and it keeps the hose from bouncing. Super easy and cheap Amazon purchase that ties a bow on an awesome product.

Will be purchasing at least one of the extra hydration flasks so I can keep some water in the main bladder and some diluted sports drink in the smaller flask.

Love it!!!

Perfect

Top quality product. It is the perfect size with the ability to add on some soft flasks for longer runs. Stays put, no bouncing, it just moves with you.

Bought a second for my wife. 6 stars

Gear Vest, Version 3.0 I love this vest

I love the orange mud equipment but have an issue with many of the other hydration packs. I have a large barrel chest and while many of the other hydration packs fit they end up with the front pockets in my armpits. While I realize I am a unique case this new pack has longer straps and aligns in the front of my chest and I love it.

Light and Durable

The fit across the shoulders is perfect and there is great room for adjustment with the straps. Having the weight of the water up higher on my back makes running easier. The extra space up front works perfect for everything from an extra bladder to my phone and snacks. Great vest!
