Montane's Fang 5 is a vest with a rucksack body fitted to the back - this makes it very stable on the body. Also has two 500ml soft drinks bottles.

Montane says: Featherweight Trail running speed pack.

The VIA Trail Series Packs are designed for speed on the trail and in the mountains. The new VIA Fang 5 is unequaled 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.

Montane's Fang 5 is a jerkin secured around the waist by a wide elasticated velcro strap. Its a method of tightening the belt which is quick, easy and secure. The hook side of the fastener faces outwards which could hook other clothing if you're not careful. When fastened though there's not much exposed, so its not going to be a big issue.

On the back there's the rucksack body which comprises one main compartment and a smaller pocket. There are also no less than six pockets on the waist and shoulder areas - made from stretch mesh and good for keeping gear handy.

With the two bottles in place the whole item weighs in at 344grams, with both bottles full of water the weight of the vest is small in comparison and the weight is centred on the shoulder straps, if you have very little other gear this may not be ideal, but if you can balance this load with your 5 litres of cargo it works very well.
