The VIA Trail Series® packs are designed for speed on the trail and in the mountains. The new VIA Fang 5 is unequalled in performance and construction. This pack utilises RAPTOR UL fabric with Robic™ yarn, which has improved strength and a lower weight, helping you go further faster. The revolutionary Montane® Freelight Chassis has been updated to include two Montane SoftFlasks™ 500ml for fast and compact hydration whilst on the move. Together with the proven, unique stretch body fit which provides unrivalled weight balance when moving fast over rough terrain, the Fang 5’s ingenious design and extreme featherweight characteristics ensures it is perfect for training missions or ‘done-in-a-day’ mountain trail runs.

Centurion Review: What makes Montane Race Vests special, is the comfort and fit. In particular the combination of the adjustable chest strap but more so the wide elasticated lower velcro strap, increases the hold and spreads the load more than other competitor products. That velcro system also makes it really quick and easy to adjust. The space in the back is ample for Centurion Events or for mandatory gear lists, and packs in to well thought out pockes. The front access to hydration and nutrition is what you'd expect from race vests in this day and age - excellent throughout.
