KNOW WHAT YOU’RE BUYING

The table below is designed to help you understand where Montane products are made and what they are made from. Lower impact materials have a reduced environmental footprint and increased traceability via third party accreditations. For example recycled content, Responsible Down Standard certified down, and branded yarns like Tencel ™. Where a product uses a DWR you can easily see whether this uses potentially harmful chemistry (PFCs).

Raptor Flex 4-Way Stretch

Enhanced ease of movement is essential for a running pack that will enable you to go further on the trail. Engineered with a stretchy plain weave accommodates for any necessary pack expansion on the move, whilst minimising bounce. Durable abrasion resistance also makes this an incredibly robust mountain companion - able to withstand potential wear and tear on more adventurous trail runs.

POLYGIENE® permanent odour control

POLYGIENE® permanent odour control

Pushing yourself hard on the trail can be sweaty business! Luckily this Gecko running pack is treated with POLYGEINE, providing longer-lasting freshness on the move and a fast drying time. How does it work? POLYGEINE inhibits the growth of odour-causing bacteria, stopping smells at the source. All this means you can wear more and wash less. Not only is this good news for you, but it's also good news for the planet.

    Takes getting used to

    If you haven't run with a chest pack before, they take some getting used to. I initially found this bounced around a little too much, despite tight adjustment. With a bit more playing around with the waist strap and double chest strap, I think I've found a more comfortable position in which to wear it, however, it's still not as comfortable as other chest packs I have used. It is, however, well designed with good pocket options on the back without strain on the zip when loaded, and easily accessible front pockets for snacks and essentials. I will keep adjusting as I use it and hopefully will find the sweet spot - don't expect to run with it straight out of the packet unless you've used a Gecko before!

    Great running vest

    Ran a few ultra marathons with this, durable, no bounce, easy access overall pretty perfect. One thing that I do have an issue with is the opening system. It is really hard to open when running and especially to close up when running. Another thing would be the vest closure. Velcro works great its just the sterum straps can sometimes come off. I have lost the elastic straps because they have fallen off and have replaced them with elastic that I have threaded through. When they do stay on they are really comfortable and work great. The zips have also started sieze up and become hard to open.

    Overall great vest and great design. In my opinion way better than salomon vests and other competitors. I just think there could be some refinement in some areas.
