KNOW WHAT YOU’RE BUYING

The table below is designed to help you understand where Montane products are made and what they are made from. Lower impact materials have a reduced environmental footprint and increased traceability via third party accreditations. For example recycled content, Responsible Down Standard certified down, and branded yarns like Tencel ™. Where a product uses a DWR you can easily see whether this uses potentially harmful chemistry (PFCs).

    Better than Adv12

    This is a great pack. I previously had a Salomon adv 12 which was far inferior to this pack. This pack is far more robust and durable. I actually had 2 adv 12s and both had issues with fabric ripping, stitching coming undone and zips not working. The gecko is a great pack (which is probably due an upgrade) but holds loads of gear, fits really comfortably. I was worried about the velcro bit but that is fine, the chest straps are a little fiddly and don't always stay tight (these are what I'd upgrade) and I haven't had any issue with things coming out of the stuff pockets but again these could be upgraded but I'm clutching at straws. A great pack that is far superior to others out there.

    Perfect race vest

    Perfect for multistage, multi day racing where up to 12 hours were spent running on the Highlands.

    So comfortable you forget it’s on. Loads of room for all mandatory equipment, food, hydration and medications which I can’t run without. Can highly recommend.

    Montane Gecko VP 12+

    I can't fault, I already had the VP5+, so it was a no brainer to get the 12+ when I needed a bigger pack size.
