Whenever you’re aiming for your personal best, it’s not the steep pass or the fast-moving squall that brings you down; it’s the nagging details that trip you up. Keep it together longer with the thoughtfully designed Fore Runner Vest. Lightweight and highly breathable, it has a close fit and a clean, efficient design that stays in sync with your motions for minimal bounce and maximum comfort when you’re running ultras or long, self-supported vision quests. The top-loading main compartment, made from weather-resistant nylon ripstop, keeps your hydration (2L reservoir included) and your choice of calories secure next to the body. It also features an integrated compression system and a quick open-and-close entry that’s simple to use, even at mile 78. A supple foam back panel, made from lightweight mono mesh, breathes to keep you cool and dry. Stretch pockets hold your flasks or hand bottles, and numerous small stash pockets give you options for storing your salts and gels. Airflow mesh throughout the vest has a soft edge binding for next-to-skin comfort. Made from 3.7-oz 100-denier high-tenacity nylon ripstop with a 6.25-oz 210-denier nylon semi-dull double-ripstop base. Both fabrics have a polyurethane coating and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.

Water Resistant

DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product. I bought this to use it during my long runs. The first use was for a half marathon. The hydration pack was large enough to keep me going and I was able to carry some food, my wallet and an extra t-shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neat perfect hydration pack I bought this for actually sup racing as my hydration, Its probably a bit big for that but thats why I got it. It has so much room if you need to carry anything with you like a jacket etc etc. And if you use it for just hydration its feels small and light. well done guys, its the perfect hydration pack for literally anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for running or bike commuting I bought this pack 2 years ago and just love it. I've used it for ultra races and running or bike commuting. It's the perfect size for packing a little bit of stuff like water bladder, food and jacket or a lot like shoes and work clothes. The pocket in the front fits bear spray perfectly. I'm only 5'4 so was worried it might bounce around but haven't had any issues as the size is very adjustable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for biking I have been using this pack for mountain biking and have found it to be a great pack for that. It stays in place while going over jumps (which my last pack did not) and has all the right features except one - a bigger inside pocket for holding a multi tool and other repair parts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Carries very well, adjustability I've been using for mountain biking and a few light day hikes. The pack itself carries very well, far more comfortable than any of the Camelbacks I've owned. Bite valve is ok but a bit finicky. I am a little leary of the reservoir closure, but no leaks and so far, so good. Only real negative is the size of the reservoir, I'd love to see 100 over 70. All that said it's the best carrying hydro pack I've used and it's adjustability and storage make it a great choice for MTB or light hikes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bag for running, scrambling, hiking! I bought this last year as I had volunteered to sweep and provide first aid for two back-country running events near Bozeman, MT. I needed to carry my own modest supplies, plus a first aid kit and radio. First outing was poor; the bladder had a manufacturer's defect and ALL my supplies got soaked. HydraPak warrantied the bladder immediately (Patagonia does/did not have replacement bladders). With the new bladder all is well; plus, the bladder is low taste (i.e. little plastic/chemical taste). I have raced with this bag/vest as well, in a 14 mile unsupported run to a summit and back. It perfectly held food, water, warm hat, Houdini and light puffy. The fit is great for running and fast hiking, especially if you may use trekking poles. It is easy to adjust and control/eliminate bounce. I've used it mountain biking some, and it is fine for those adventures as well. The front strap pockets are okay, but this will largely be a personal issue, depending on what you carry on long runs. It fits high which means it would not interfere with a climbing harness. That makes it an appealing option fast alpine outings that may involve a belay or rappel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to pack. This pack is great for just about everything!! Used it mainly on long climbing days in the Sierras. I love the vest for bars and holds the necessities for easy access while climbing. Also sits high above harness so no interference. Surprisingly it can fit a good amount of stuff, even carried a rope on it. I have worn it through some chimney cracks and it is holding up really well, just don't put anything sharp or edgy in it and rub it up against something. I had my nut tool and some gear in it and ripped a hole in the side. But luckily my friends helped me fix it with this old canvas that I had been wanting to make something with. I like it so much i did it on both sides!!! Great all around pack goes with me everywhere usually.
