Who For?

Long distance trail and fell running, over 3 hours on feet including bad weather days.

A great pack for ultras and colder weather running when you need to carry more. Or in events with less support or require more minimum kit items. Ideal for future proofing if you’re upping your distances.

Short to medium distance, up to 3 hours. Great with minimal kit or packed out. Stretchy fabric allows you to carry more than you’d think so a perfect all rounder. 

Also great in races with lots of checkpoints so you can keep weight down but refresh supplies regularly.

Trail, fell and road running. Perfect for shorter mid week runs, or when you pop out and just need to carry some water, snacks and a phone.
