The TrailFire is a simple, minimalist, super lightweight vest pack. Designed to give you a basic shell that you can adapt and change to suit your needs through the use of other OMM accessories it's a different option for those wanting a versatile running vest.
The TrailFire vest is stripped down to the essentials, a low-profile, highly-versatile vest for any length of race or training. Multiple attachment points on the back allow you to expand the load carry by attaching the compressor pod for longer races. The Trailfire is also compatible with bladders and flexi flasks to provide hands-fee hydration.
OMM's TrailFire Vest Pack is a great concept. Using the current range of OMM pack accessories you can build the TrailFire into whatever you need or leave it stripped back and minimalist. The vest is made from breathable mesh which has some stretch to it. There are a four pockets on the front, two with Velcro closure, and one large pocket on the back.
The vest is designed to take up to a 3L bladder and two of the front pockets can accommodate smaller (around 350ml sizes) soft flasks depending on what you prefer. The vest has a UGR to give you more options for kit and this is also where the Compressor Pod can be attached.
The fit of the vest is really goo and it can be adjusted quickly and easily with elasticated draw cords across the chest and at the sides so it is easy to get comfortable. Stripped back to the product as you receive it this is a comfortable racing vest but to make the most of it you really need some of the OMM accessories to go with it so bear that in mind when considering the cost.
