You’re going to need more than just water, your keys and a phone when you’re covering more technical ground, which is where the Advanced Skin 12 Set from Salomon comes in.
The breathable design of the Advanced Skin 12 has a Sensifit system that wraps around your body and moves with you to for better stability, and the stretchy mesh used will also reduce the risk of chafing for better overall comfort. The two included soft bite valve flasks sit in the pockets located at the front of your chest, which reduces sloshing and enables you to move your neck down to drink without removing them. You can also route a separate 1.5L bladder in this pack, so you can keep both a water and energy supply handy at all times.
The Kangaroo pocket on the back of the pack is easily accessible on either side, so you can retrieve and stash your gear quickly and easily, and the zippered front pocket allows you to keep your phone or fuel close to hand.
With a poles holder, whistle, safety blanket, and two soft flasks included – this pack has the long-term comfort and features you’ll need for off the grid training where you need to be prepared for anything.
Lightweight, compact no chaffing. wish they came with the bladder though
I love my Salomon pack. its super comfortable and fits tight to my body so doesn't rub and cause chafing. the material has some elastic in it to keep all your gear nice tightly packed and in place.
So far best gear I ever had! I'm amazed how steady and comfortable it is while running. Once you have it on it seems like it becomes part of you. Beautiful piece, thank you Snowys!
It’s perfect for me, plenty of pockets and room for everything. Very happy with it and the service l received.
I ordered this pack for the upcoming UTA event, as my current Running pack was very small. I was worried it would be bulky, but even fully laden it fits like a second skin. The design means it “hugs” your body, and stays put! I’ve had no issues with chaffing at all. Highly recommend!
As the question asks, can this hold trekking poles ok? Ones that twist to collapse rather than fold. Can you stow on the go?
Unfortunately, the Salomon Advanced Skin 12 Set Running Pack doesn't have straps that you can put your walking poles into when you're not using them.
Just wondering if this would be suitable for hiking? I've got an osprey Talon 22 which is a little too big for anything under 15km. Could this hold gear for lunch?
I've just had a bit of a look at the pockets of the Salomon Advanced Skin 12 Set Running Pack. You'd be able to fit a few bars and the like in it for lunch but I don't think the pocket holes would quite be big enough for a sandwich.
Can the vest be tried on instore?
Yes you can certainly try one on to get a feel for the size, but we would recommend calling ahead to the store (in your case it would be Keswick) to double check that we have the sizes that you're interested in.
Can the Salomon vest be used with any brand bladder?
Using a Salomon bladder would be the absolute best fit for a Salomon Advanced Skin 12 Set Running Pack but you can use other bladders in a pinch. If you wanted an absolute answer, feel free to let me know which bladder you're looking at and I can test it out for you.
Im a size 8 in ladies , would the XS/S size be suitable?
To fit the Salomon Advanced Skin 12 Set Running Pack, you need to grab a torso measurement from just underneath your armpits. The XXS will fit a chest measurement of 69-86cm, XS/S will suit 86-98cm, M/L will suit 98-109cm & XL will suit 109-125cm. Hopefully, this will help you grab one that's the perfect fit.
Can I order either the set 5 or set 12 in the blue which you can buy else where? Thanks
You most certainly can order a blue Salamon Advances Skin 12 or 5 Set Running Pack. Just give our customer service team a buzz on 1300 914 007 and they'll be able to arrange that over the phone for you.
I can see there are 2 x soft flask bottles included and the bladder insulation, but want to make sure the bladder is included too. Thanks.
Good pick up. The Salamon Advanced Skin 12 Set Running Pack doesn't include the bladder, no, just the insulation pouch for it.
Your photos so both the new and old model. thanks Nick
From our understanding, this is the current model.
I can't distinguish differences in the images, only colours. Can you please clarify and I'll happily look into this further.
Also, are there men’s and women’s?
The Salomon Advanced Skin 12 Set Running Pack is a unisex backpack. While the insulated cover is designed for a 1.5L bladder, there is nothing stopping you from removing that and then carrying a tight-fitting 2L bladder. The Salomon bladders can be found here.
Is there a chest size applicable to each?
There is no specific sizing guide for these. They correspond to normal S/M/L clothing sizing.
They are all adjustable to ensure you can achieve the perfect fit.
