The OMM Classic 25 has been tailored for a smaller frame or shorter back compared to the larger Classic 32, is a high-capacity running pack engineered for extensive distances and challenging landscapes. Balancing a lightweight design with robust construction and innovative features, this pack seamlessly transitions from short-haul flights to the slopes of remote Munros. Its truest setting, however, is on the start line of a Mountain Marathon.
Originally crafted in 1973 to meet the specifications of Olympian Sir Chris Brasher, The Classic revolutionized pack design by prioritizing weight as a crucial element. In its latest version, The Classic excels in weight management, on-the-go accessibility, comfort across various movement speeds, and versatile components. Whether tackling an OMM or easier challenges like MDS, UTMB, Spine Race, Dragon’s Back, Grand2Grand, 4 Deserts, Fire & Ice Ultra, or Everest, the Classic remains the go-to choice for its exceptional performance across the board. It's truly a classic in every sense.
Comfort And Stability: Geometrically built to be stable when running on hills. The Classic has a closed cell EVA padded shoulder harness specially constructed without side seams to allow the pad to follow the body’s natural contours. The waistbelt can be used to move weight onto the hips with heavier loads or removed for a faster, lighter shoulder carry option. The Classic back padding is the removable EVA Duomat, that doubles as a 3/4 sleep mat.
Visible Quick Storage: A good Mountain Marathon team will take advantage of the all round stretch mesh pockets on the Classic. They stash their quick access kit such as waterproofs, food and water in their partner’s pockets, so they can run behind and select what they like. For the rest of us this means easy to reach stretch side pockets that will easily hold two bottles each and a rear stash for dirty trainers after a run or anything else that can stand a bit of weather. The lid strap can be moved to attach at the top of the pocket for even more stretch volume. Up front, the waistbelt pockets total 2L capacity and have key clips so phones compasses favourite goodies – it’ll all go in.
Adapt The Pack To Your Needs: Designed both for 450 mile solo expeditions and daily training. The Classic pack comes with a variety of attachment points depending on what kit you need to take. Add the OMM Chest Pod and front bottle holders for multi-day ultra racing. Or for winter ascents; ice axes or walking poles can be attached to the gear rail when needed. Strip off the Duomat back padding and the waistbelt for a super light dash bag.
