Any other great features I should know about?Bungee cord back to secure kit and give a snug fit
Whistle integrated on top strap
Silicone grippers on the strap adjustment to prevent slip

Soft bottle long straw holders
Can I attach my poles?
Yes! Our pole holders are reinforced and secure. You can carry your z-poles across the back horizontally.
These holders can also be used for a rolled up waterproof jacket.
What size should I choose?
We have six different sizes, more than any other brand to ensure a perfect fit.
Men - measure around widest part of your chest.
Women - measure around widest part of your bust AND ribs. For women, choose the size bracket you are most in the middle of because you want to account for it not being too tight across your bust, or too loose around your ribs.
Example - 39" bust and 36" ribs = Small
What runs would you use it for?
This running vest offers extra space for tougher runs requiring more kit and supplies. Designed especially for trail runners wanting a comfortable, practical race vest that's great for carrying all your essentials on medium to long runs.
We would recommend this race vest for run or hike times of up to 2+ hours. It is also good for poor weather conditions when you may need to carry extra safety kit. If you need a race vest for shorter runs we would recommend our Curbar 5L.
How comfy is it and does it bounce or chaffe?
The most important factor to ensure a race vest is comfortable is to ensure you have the right size. We offer 6 sizes, more than any other brand so you can choose the one which is right for you, and not have to settle for 'one size fits most'.
The stretchy and lightweight fabric and adjustable chest straps make it very comfy! The mesh inner lining is double padded honeycomb to ensure it is comfortable on your back, but also breathable. Our hem and outer fabric is very soft, no hard or rough edges like on some other brand race vests which can rub and cause sores during runs.
When would you use a race vest?
Race vests are fantastic for any length runs where you want to carry some water and a few essentials. Standard backpacks are not designed for running, they bounce around, don't have easily accessible pockets or a comfortable fit system.
Harrier race vests off lots of different storage options so you can work out what's best for you. Love taking photos? Have your phone to hand easily for those epic view shots! Need your snacks to hand? Assign designated pockets for on the go fuel, empty wrappers and emergency calories. The kit organisation options are endless!
How much does it weigh?
From just 230g
What is it made from?
Super soft, 4 way stretch fabric to fit around your kit
High quality, DWR treated water resistant materials and stretchy, breathable mesh
How do I wash it?
Harrier race vests are machine washable! Choose a 30 degrees gentle cycle. We recommend using a specialist outdoor clothing liquid detergent such as Grangers 2 in 1.
