The women's Montane VIA Snap 4 is a featherweight trail running vest pack, specifically tailored to the female athlete. Updated with CONTACT Flyte Mesh Air which is faster drying, retains less moisture and is skin/shell friendly.
The Women’s VIA Snap 4 has been specifically designed for the female athlete. The Women’s specific Montane Freelight Chassis has been updated with a lighter weight, more breathable CONTACT Flyte Mesh Air with the addition of POLYGIENE® permanent odour control, a first for any trail running pack, allowing it to work in harmony with the female form like never before. Together with its innovative organisation of pockets, including the newly enlarged side stash pockets and clever weight distribution design the Snap 4 has a unique stretch body fit which provides unrivalled performance when moving fast over rough terrain, making it perfect for training missions or ‘done-in-a-day’ mountain trail runs.
From 2018 Montane updated all of the Freelight Chassis in the VIA Trail Series packs with a lighter, more breathable 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 women's VIA Snap 4 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 enlarged side stash pockets, the diagonal pole attachment option and the Lock Down zips that don't flap as you run. These are just a few of the changes that really make this a great trail running pack.
