The Raidlight Ultra Vest Olmo 20 is a medium sized pack designed for hot weather and desert trail running and racing. The different compartments allow good organisation of your gear.
This new design has been developed to bring you better stability and better support from your backpack. This Ultra Vest Olmo 20 is designed so you can store a large amount of gear while being able to easily access it all from the front.
You will be impressed by its comfort and by the lightness of 630g!
Raidlight's 2016 Ultra Vest Olmo 20L is the new and improved version of the old Ultra Olmo 20 but with a few moderation's. To start with it no longer comes supplied with Raidlight bottles but all the same pockets are there for you to place your own. This sounded disappointing at first but then we understood why. Raidlight have so many hydration options to choose from, they couldn't keep every customer happy, so this way you can design the bag the way you want it form the start.
Secondly the fit of the pack has changed. It now fits more like a vest than a rucksack as Raidlight have discarded the lower waist strap and replaced it with a second chest strap. The pack still offers a system for carrying poles on the front of the bag for ease of use and has a very comfortable, breathable padded mesh back. The pack still has more pockets than you'll know what to do with. One of my favourite features - the headphone jack connection is still in the pack and placed with easy access from the waist pocket. It's safe to say with multiple pockets like these, you'll have plenty of space for all the essentials such as gels, cereal bars, a phone and a change of clothing.
