Montane have combined the stability of a vest harness with the support of a hip belt to produce a feature rich running pack which is extremely stable.

Montane says

The Trailblazer® 18 is designed for fast-paced day missions in the mountains, where low-weight, stability and quick access to your kit is essential. The innovative Montane® COVALENT harness delivers a customisable, body-hugging fit without restricting movement. With ample 18-litre storage capacity and a multitude of pockets, it offers easy access to hydration, food and essential kit while on the move.

Our Verdict

Montane have combined a vest harness with a hip belt and fitted it to the 18 litre Trailblazer pack, making it surely one of the most stable packs available. With generous pockets on the shoulder straps and hip belt its very much about accessibility on the move, if you're trying to go fast you don't want to stop to put gloves away! On the front of the pack there's a non-bellowed pocket with a full length zip and a couple of helpful pouches stitched inside, one with a zip.

The main compartment is fuss free though there's a separate compartment for a bladder sitting between your back and the main compartment, this is very useful as it makes refilling extremely quick and easy.

The back panel is simply a foam pad, probably adequate for an 18 litre load. The pack is aimed at fast moving days in the mountains and it will suit runners and mountain marathoners.
