Raidlight are always looking to improve, but here they are reaching perfection according to feedback from athletes. The Responsiv 12 has been an ongoing development for years. Firstly 8, then 10, then 12 and now the V2 updated Responsiv 12. Each time evolving to an improved version.
Useable from 2 to 12 litres this race vest has amazing versatility. 4 compression cords on the rear stabilise the load or give an additional pole storage option, the 2 stretch stash and 1 zipped pocket on the front can take handfuls of your chosen energy and you can carry as much hydration as you should reasonably need. Raidlight have added an accessible zip rear pocket if you need more storage. The monofilament mesh harness distributes load evenly for comfort without any thick padding that absorbs moisture and adds weight. The elasticated chest straps and FreeLock micrometric dials give the ability to perfectly tailor fit and stop the dreaded bounce. Our updated front pole holder design is easier to use on the move.

The Race Ultra is a perfect vest for anyone who wants one bag to do it all. The 10L pocket is removable, so only needs to be used for longer distances or gear intensive races with more mandatory kit. The innovative softflasks come with extended hoses so there is the option to have them on the bottom sides of the vest, where they can sit with more stability for some runners.
The Gecko VP 12+ by Montane is an improved, anatomically driven body hugging fit that's as secure as a Gecko. Designed for runners by runners, the Gecko VP 12+ has increased accessible storage and Polygiene permanent odour control you now wear, rather than carry your kit when moving fast on trails and in the mountains.
The Responsiv 6L Vest is the smallest and lightest of the Responsiv family (195g), it has all the features that have made the reputation of its bigger brothers. A more minimalist 6 litre version to carry the essentials when trail running.
The fifth iteration of the ever-popular ladies Adventure Vesta is as good as they come for the serious ultra runner. A volume of 16.5 litres is enough to pack everything for an overnight running epic, and more. Yet at a mere 279g (excluding the bottle), the Adventure Vesta adds very little to the weight you carry on your person. With a "burrito" pocket for GPS devices and locators, front stretch pockets suitable for snacks and a phone.
