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

Fits soft flask in 500ml (500ml-LINK) and 600ml (600ml-LINK) in the front chest pockets.

Best water/gear vest ever!

I am 5’ 4”, 120lbs. and the gear 1 liter vest is the best I’ve found for 0-10 mile trail runs (longer in mild weather). High function, great fit. No bounce fully loaded.

Gear Vest 2L

I’ve been using this for running. Overall I’m happy with the fit and comfort of the vest. I like that it sits high and doesn’t bounce. I like that it has pockets, but the front pockets are so big that anything in them, such as my phone, just bounces around on my chest. I like the elastic straps that snap in the front that don’t leave me feeling constricted, but they loosen as I run and I constantly have to tighten them so I’ve just knitted the ends together and that keeps it tight enough.

Lightest option for hydration pack for hottest summer running

I love the way that this pack is so small. It contains only 1 liter of hydration in the bladder, and it is all that I need for up to 10 miles. I plan my hottest running around being able to replenish liquid by dropping a cooler or looping back to my truck every 8 to 10 miles. and 1 liter of hydration gets me there. I can also add bottles up front, but haven't needed to. The small footprint of the pack makes it cooler, and I don't want to carry more when it is so hot out.

So far so good.

I have only had it long enough to use it 4 times so far. I work it today for a 21 mile trail race and only had 1 issue. The chest sinch strap's would drop down on its own. Not a huge deal but we will see how it goes. No bounce and held all my necessary gear with ease.

Excellent

A well made vest made for any endurance event or race. Held all my gear to include rain jacket, headlamp, 5x energy goo, 3x sports bars, half liter water bottle, and plenty of front pockets for more. There are no large compartments with zippers or Velcro to secure items in aside from the 1 liter camelback pouch provided you remove the bladder. Main issue I had during my event was that the pack's straps would loosen resulting in it sagging to the rear of my back when running. After securing the excess slack into the retaining straps built in, the issue went away and I was able to get back into my normal rhythm. It's obvious the designers put a lot of thought of what endurance runners need into this pack. Great investment!
