When you are heading out for a long run and need spare layers, extra snacks or fluids, the Race Elite is an excellent pack for the job. Lightweight, durable and comfortable for a range of activities.
The new RACE ELITE WAIST pack - a lightweight and super versatile waist belt designed to offer ample storage for all your essential gear and compulsory race kit. The 3L central pocket boasts plenty of room for your waterproof jacket, trousers and race nutrition, whilst side stash pockets and a flask pocket (compatible with a 0.5L Ultraflask) provide additional storage.
Top bungee compression straps allow you to compress the pack down when not carrying much or allow you to quickly tuck away a jacket or warm top whilst on the move. Constructed from lightweight and super-durable materials, the waist belt offers a super comfortable fit with a ‘V’ webbing adjustment belt keeping the pack locked down and in position - reducing bounce and vertical movement.
Inov8's Race Elite Waist Pack is a minimalist pack that keeps the weight low but allows enough storage for a spare layer, fluids and snacks for those longer runs. With a 3L capacity in the main pocket and a stretch mesh pocket on the outer combined with compression straps along the top and you get a versatile and practical piece of kit.
The back of the pack uses a layered mesh to maximise breathability and keep you comfortable for longer. The waist straps can be easily adjusted on the move and does a great job of reducing bounce in the pack when you're running. This is definitely one of those bits of kit that you use a lot more than expected as it is so light yet so handy for hitting the trails in changeable conditions or heading out for longer runs than normal.
