Omega - Lightweight, Endurance Hydration Pack

This pack began as a custom pack for Elite Immortal Krrissy Moehl’s return trip to the UTMB at Mont Blanc to defend her record and first place finish. But, many of our immortals saw prototypes of this pack and wanted it too! We thought there must be more runners out there who would feel the same way about this incredibly light weight and surprisingly accommodating, pack. Though a challenge to create a pack that was both light enough to wear for a hundred plus mile race, and large enough to stow all the necessary equipment, this paradox has found itself a home in the Omega. The Omega is a larger version of the Surge pack

Product Details

  • Feather weight, large capacity pack.
  • Unimpeded rapid access reservoir compartment for quick fill during races.
  • Magnon Electrolyte Pocket™.
  • Light weight zippers pulls easily grabbed even with gloves, cold or numb fingers.
  • Large hole microfiber mesh for ultra breathability.
  • Front chests pocket with secure zipper on one side, and corded mesh pocket with capacity to hold a small bottle or gel flask on the other side.
  • Pockets and shock cord loops for trekking pole attachment.
  • Dual Speed Hooks for even distribution of weight and load management.
  • Compressi-flex tension control.
  • Weight: 320 g (460 g with reservoir)
  • Available colors: Pitch Black, Steep Green

Fastpack - Lightweight, Endurance Running Pack

A pack for the true voyager; light weight but roomy enough to carry sleeping gear, extra clothing and everything needed to cover serious topography with ease and efficiency without impeding speed. The concept of “Fastpacking” was born out of the adventures of some early pioneers of trail “running” in the Wind River Range of Wyoming and other beautiful areas that previously required days—and several nights—to see. This hybrid speed “hiking” seemed rather odd at the time, but now has become a regular passion for many runners and explorers!

Product Details

  • Soft, fully breathable, lightweight mesh hip support featuring bio designed optimum efficiency.
  • Low profiled dimensional zippered pouch on each side of waist piece that does not impede natural arm movement.
  • Quick stash right pocket is large enough to hold a spare bottle or other essentials and it uniformly compresses with cord.
  • Patent pending Magnon Electrolyte Pocket™ with easy worry free magnet closure.

  • Dedicated sleeve for hydration bladder (reservoir not included).
  • Left mesh pocket over zippered inner pocket for securely stowing night time accessories, energy foods and other necessary gear.

  • Large hole microfiber mesh for ultra breathability.
  • Ergo aligned and angled bottle holsters allow for ease of access; plus, patent pending Polarity System™ aids in return of bottles to proper position and aids in stability.
  • Comes standard with two 26 oz InSpirAtion Human finger loop bottles.
  • Capacity for up to a 3 Lt Bladder. *BLADDER NOT INCLUDED
  • Weight: 600 g (819 g with bottles)

Titan - Lightweight, Endurance Running Pack

This pack, like the Solace, was originally developed with the long distance Mt bike racer in mind, where pockets might get in the way of knees, and/or a situation where you can’t use both hands to get in and out of a pocket, i.e. one hand must be kept on a handle bar. However, we’ve found that our runners like it too! Especially, if they want a lower profile pocket and alternatively, this pack is especially suited for summiting high places!

Product Details

  • Classic top-loading main big capacity compartment.
  • Separate compartment for 2L reservoir in the back.
  • New Plexus Pocket™ configuration has magnets for one-handed pocket access and automatic closure.
  • Dual Speed Hooks with limited stretch elastic for breathability without restriction.
  • Magnon Electrolyte Pocket™ and a small zippered pocket.
  • First in the industry sweat repelling webbing, so it doesn’t get heavier picking up water and sweat/salt weight.
  • True, bi-directional compression, and/or adjustment straps.
  • Flat zippered internal compartment for essentials.
  • External quick stash pocket with elasticized mesh, and a sleeve for a bike pump/ice ax.
  • Top pocket with key clip.
  • Large hole microfiber mesh for ultra breathability.
  • Ultra lightweight 30-denier fabric, perforated foam for reduced weight while supplying structure and support.
  • Compresses to be stable when empty or full.
  • Weight: 340 g (480 g with reservoir)
  • Available colors: Steep Green
