Many runners struggle to get everything they need into the Responsiv 12L for longer races with larger mandatory kit lists,
or the need for more durable clothing and equipment which adds pack size and a bit of weight.
The Responsiv 18L is perfect for those bigger and longer races and big days out.

Up front there are 2 bottle pockets, 2 stretch pockets which fit a surprising amount of food!
Plus a zipped pocket which will fit most phones. To the rear there is another accessible zipped stretch pocket.
The main compartment is zip accessed through the top and the side, is hydration reservoir compatible and has an
internal zip secure pocket. If that isn't enough pockets... we added an additional stretch pocket on the rear.

Composition: 59% Polyamide, 28% Polyester, 13% Elastane

    Really good piece of kit

    I bought this for increased storage over my existing smaller capacity vest (another brand). I love the design and quality of the Raidlight vest. Snug and stable fit, easy to use, and no gimmicky features that I won't use. It has both a top zip and long side zip for the main compartment which makes it very easy to organize and pack the compulsory gear for my next event without phaff.

    Would have given it five stars were it not for a couple of issues right out of the box: jammed micrometric adjuster and a partially blocked bottle straw. Both of these were able to be fixed with a bit of disassembly and reassembly.
