Show Description

Combining the capacity of a hydration pack with the fit of a vest, the Pace brings it for extended training and adventure races. Plenty of adjustment options keep it close as you move. A quick-draw shoulder pocket lets you access nutrition without breaking stride.

  • Main fabric is stretch-woven nylon with mechanical stretch for mobility and elasticity that won’t sag over time.
  • Back panel, harness and pack bottom are diamond grid mesh for softness and breathability.
  • Backpanel and shoulder straps are lightly padded with EVA foam for comfort.
  • Stretch-woven edge binding prevent chafe.
  • Shoulders adjust with hook-and-loop for a precise fit that won’t loosen as you run.
  • 2 vertically adjustable sternum straps keep the pack solidly in place (bottom one has a hydration hose clip).
  • Overlapping envelope pockets in hip fin provide easy access to small items.
  • Left shoulder pocket has expanding side panels to swallow extra race day gels.
  • Reflective loops on backpanel let you add bungi cord when needed.
  • Reflective elastic loops on shoulders straps for holding hydration tube or lashing on small items.
  • Reflective logo on center front shows up in headlamps.
  • Includes a Hydrapak Elite 1L reversible reservoir made of TPU for durability and flexibility, with a slide opening for quick filling and leakproof closure.
