Our View - Raidlight Gilet Responsiv 10l:
The Raidlight Gilet Responsiv range has been a hit with our trail running customers since its introduction and the latest set of improvements have enhanced the packs’ usability further making this one the top choices if you are looking for a medium capacity trail running pack that’s the ideal size for ultra races and all day training runs.
Designed and tested with the Raidlight Pro Team, the Gilet Responsiv 10L has race proven ability and this is very evident in the attention to detail with the fit and layout of the packs features. All the materials are a cut above other packs and Raidlight make this pack in France and have used laser cut materials and bonding throughout.
Weighing in at just 200g, extra pockets have been added to the front of the pack to allow a choice between higher or lower storage of soft flasks. As before, alongside sizing options, the pack’s fit can be tweaked by the sternum straps across the chest and the boa adjusters on the sides.
The 10 litre volume of the main section can accommodate a 1.5L hydration bladder and there are also multiple additional pockets distributed well around the pack. There are 4 pockets on the front shoulder straps, 2 of which are secure and 2 of which are compatible with Raidlight Press to drink soft flasks (2 supplied). There are also 2 side pockets with flap closure to securely carry items you need to access quickly such as food. The pack can also carry poles on the chest and pack and there is an integrated whistle in the chest strap.
The Raidlight Gilet Responsiv 10L is a great fitting, very comfortable and highly functional pack for trail running. The outer material is tough and can stand up to the roughs of the trail whilst the material against the body is soft and breathable.
