The Montane VIA Razor 15 is a featherweight ultra distance 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.
The VIA Trail Series® packs are designed for speed on the trail and in the mountains. The Montane Freelight Chassis utilises a new lighter weight, more breathable CONTACT Flyte Mesh Air with the addition of POLYGIENE® permanent odour control, a first for any trail running pack. Its stretch body fit remains unrivalled providing unique weight balance control, allowing you to wear, rather than carry your kit when moving fast over rough terrain. The 15 litre capacity of the Razor provides optimal volume for carrying essential gear on longer trail missions and during ultra events. The Razor 15 incorporates pack compression together with extra large stretch mesh side pockets, making this one of our most versatile ultra-distance trail running packs.
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 Razor 15 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 added 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 makes this a great trail running pack.
