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.

Trail running

Overall I really like this pack. It’s secure on the back, and does not bounce up and down. The weight of the water is distributed evenly, and it feels balanced. The bottles and bladder are well made, and easy to clean. The bottles do however give the water a yucky taste, which probably means I’m drinking plastic chemicals. The bladder water tastes fine. My only other complaint is that the 2 chest straps are made out of a really slippery material, causing them to slip through the buckles and constantly loosen when I run. I remedied this by holding them in place with some rubber elastics.

Absolutely Perfect!!

This pack is exactly what I needed! Not too big but enough to carry enough water for a long run. The elastic chest straps wonderful. They allow you to get the pack tight enough so its not bouncing around and doesn't restrict chest when breathing heavily.

Gear Vest, 2L (1 liter bladder)

I love orange mud products

I have been using the single barrel for several years and have also gifted a few.

The are great for 5k, 10k, and half marathons (road and trail)

I am currently training for a marathon and needed something a bit bigger.

I have been training with the gear vest for a few weeks and love its functionality; front pockets for more waters, electrolytes or chews.... still extremely comfortable.
