A sleek, lightweight option for trail running or ultra racing, the Montane Men's Via Fang 5 vest pack offers movement-mirroring fit, intuitive in-reach pocketing, and included 500ml soft flasks.
The pack is constructed of high-tenacity nylon/robic fabric and breathable air mesh, resulting in a close-hugging fit, an excellent strength-to-weight ratio, and breathability to help keep you cool and comfortable. It has even been given a Polygiene treatment to offer long-term odor-resistance. The ergonomic shaping of the pack's harness combines with an adjustable lower stretch closure and an adjustable sternum strap to keep the pack comfortably and securely in place.
A large main storage compartment has expandability for discarded layers and other gear. An external bungee system allows you to compress the compartment to keep things securely in place or to simply diminish the size of the compartment when you aren't maxing out its full 5 liter storage capacity. There are tons of other pockets too, including upper and lower front harness pockets, and stretch side lat pockets. Two front stretch pockets house the included 500ml soft flasks so on-the-go hydration is close at hand.
Other features include multiple trekking pole carrying configurations, compatibility for use of a hydration system (hydration system not included), and an integrated, removable safety whistle.
The Montane Men's Via Fang 5 hydration running vest is available in your choice of colors and Small/Medium (best fits 30"-38" chest sizes) and Medium/Large (38"-44") size options.
