Choose Your Race Vest
Curbar 5L or Kinder 10L?
The Curbar 5L is ideal for carrying a small or medium amount of kit. Such as two soft flasks, snacks, hat and gloves, waterproof jacket easily.
Stretchy fabric for a comfortable fit whether carrying full or with minimal items. Great for beginners and advanced alike! 😊
The Kinder 10L is ideal for longer runs, 2 hours +, and carrying a medium to large amount of kit. Such as two soft flasks, snacks 🍫, hat and gloves, waterproof jacket. Additional warm layer, waterproof trousers or water bladder in the back compartment.
Getting the right size
Take a measurement around the widest part of your chest or bust. If you are between sizes consider what kit you will carrying for the majority of your runs. If you like to pack light, for example two flasks, a snack and a first aid kit, go for a size down. If you like to have lots of kit which will pad the pack out, or you train in winter 🥶 a lot with layers underneath, a size up may be better.
Choose Your Soft Flasks and Soft Cup
If you are a beginner, two 500ml soft flasks are great to get you started. Soft bottles do not slosh like hard bottles and they are much more comfortable against your body. The soft cup is great for grabbing a quick drink at check points at a race or event to reduce single use plastic. Choose your favourite colours 🌈
Add Your Safety Items
When you first start trail running, kit options can seem a bit overwhelming. A mini first aid kit, bivvi bag and tube scarf go a long way and will help keep you safe on the trails. That, with a charged phone and letting people know where you are going 🧐 So you can do what's important, get out and enjoy some trails!
Not Sure Which To Choose?
Longer runs, medium to large amount of kit. Two soft flasks, snacks 🍫, hat and gloves, waterproof jacket. Additional warm layer 🥶 waterproof trousers or water bladder.
Choose the Stanage XL - XXL for chest size over 42".
Bungee cords on the back allow pack to be drawn in to stop bounce.
Shorter runs, small or medium amount of kit. Two soft flasks or bladder, snacks, hat and gloves 🧤, waterproof jacket.
Stretchy fabric for a comfortable fit whether carrying full or with minimal items 😊

Independent Gear Reviews
I’ve used Harrier run free approx 4 times now and every time I’ve received great service, I struggled to find what I was looking for this time so used the live chat option and received immediate assistance to help me find what I was looking for.
I’ve purchased the Kinder 10L vest, dry bag and soft flasks, all of which are fantastic! Highly recommend each of these products, define value for money!
Absolute top quality products, well designed and well made, all for a snip of the price of the "big" names. I have followed Harrier since start up and am so impressed with all the work that has gone into product development, testing and production. I also highly rate Harrier customer service.
I LOVE my Harrier Curbar race vest. It's comfortable, capable and cavernous! One of the best pieces of kit I have bought in a long time.
The 5L race vest is comfortable and works really well for me - I've had a bit of trouble with other more expensive brands with the packs riding up as I am relatively narrow-chested. It feels pretty robust and has lots of pockets and storage and probably more than I will need. I went for the full works with first aid kit, flasks, survival bag, straws etc etc in an inclusive package and for the first time with this sort of purchase did not feel ripped off and actually enjoy wearing it.
...and I love the packaging...is Harrier becoming the Apple of running gear?(apart from the price obviously!)
Ordered and received my Classic cap and Thorpe Ultra tee today. Very quick and efficient ordering service and delivery. Delivered in a convenient box that works really well. The 2 products are excellent and great quality and lovely to run in. Kate works really hard to ensure quality items are always at hand. Thanks again.
Fantastic! I had trouble with sizing and the help and advice I received was outstanding, far above and beyond anything I've received from another shop or brand. So if you're having sizing trouble just ask! The vest itself is great too, well made from quality materials and the perfect array of pockets.
The Kinder vest is a very well thought out piece of kit and excellent value. I bought the beginner bundle and very pleased with it. The vest is very comfortable and well finished, The inclusion of a couple of sterilising tablets for the soft flasks was most welcome to rid the flasks of that plasticky taste. I was impressed by the ability of the flasks to seal and not leak as my previous ones never sealed properly. Delivery was very quick and packaging was kept to a minimum. I'm still trying to figure out how it came so neatly packed!
Please give Harrier a try as their gear appears to be such VFM and support a small Company. WELL DONE HARRIER
I had questions around sizing for the Kinder race vest and they were dealt with quickly and efficiently..... and accurately (it’s a great fit)! The bundle arrived well packaged and quickly and all of the items were exactly as ordered. What’s not to like?! BI will definitely be shopping Harrier again. Thank you
