The new Women’s VIA Snap 4 has been specifically designed for the female athlete. A new, custom RAPTOR UL fabric with a Robic™ yarn has improved strength and a lower weight. The Women’s specific Montane® Freelight Chassis works in harmony with the female form and includes two Montane SoftFlasks™ 500ml. Together with the unique stretch body fit which provides unrivalled weight balance when moving fast over rough terrain, the VIA Snap 4’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 straps 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.
