The Montane VIA Fang 5 is a featherweight 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:

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.

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 Fang 5 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 enlarged side stash pockets, the diagonal pole attachment option and Lock Down zips that don't flap as you run. These are just a few of the changes that really make this a great trail running pack.
