Montane says: Featherweight trail running vest pack.

Designed for speed on the trail and in the mountains, the VIA Fang 5 is unequalled in performance and construction. The Montane Freelight Chassis has been updated with a lighter weight, more breathable CONTACT Flyte Mesh Air with the addition of POLYGIENE® permanent odour control, a first for any trail running pack. Together with its innovative organisation of pockets, including the newly enlarged side stash pockets and clever weight distribution design, the Fang 5 has a unique stretch body fit which provides unrivalled performance when moving fast over rough terrain, making it perfect for training missions or ‘done-in-a-day’ mountain trail runs.
