The Montane VIA Dragon 20 is an ultimate multi day endurance trail running vest pack. Updated with CONTACT Flyte Mesh Air which is faster drying, retains less moisture and is skin/shell friendly. Comes with 2 Montane SoftFlasks.

Montane says:

Redefining pack design, the VIA Dragon 20 has been developed to meet the needs of mountain endurance enthusiasts. The generous 20L capacity is fixed securely to your back with the renowned and unrivalled Montane Freelight Chassis. Updated with a new lighter weight, more breathable CONTACT Flyte Mesh Air and with the addition of POLYGIENE® permanent odour control, a first for any trail running pack, the stretch body fit of the Montane Freelight Chassis provides unique weight balance control, allowing you to wear, rather than carry your kit when moving fast over rough terrain. The VIA Dragon 20 is the ideal pack for multi days in the mountains and on long distance trails.

From 2018 Montane updated all of the Freelight Chassis in the VIA Trail Series packs with a lighter CONTACT Flyte Mesh Air which is faster drying, retains less moisture and is skin/shell friendly, causing less pilling to baselayers. They have also been updated with POLYGIENE permanent odour control to ensure the packs stay odour free for longer (unique to Montane VIA Trail Series).

The VIA Dragon 20 has also had a few changes made to it's feature set to improve the pack. Don't worry it still comes with 2 of the Montane SoftFlasks, but we particularly like the new under arm arm pole attachment point that's easy to access whilst on the move and the Lock Down zips that don't flap as you run. These are just a few of the changes that really make this a great pack for multi day or long distance trails.
