If you’re a mountain runner, the Veil 6L Lightweight Running Vest from Rab might just become your new best friend. New for spring/summer ‘23, the Veil boasts multiple storage options, water bladder compatibility, and a fabulous fit.

The multi-directional Mono Mesh Chassis, with stretch side panels, and engineered with Ripstop construction, creates enhanced support, reduced bounce, and a supportive fit. Weighing in at only 11 ounces (with the two included 500mL soft flasks), the Veil is fully adjustable and has a customizable sternum fit system for full freedom of movement.

This vest also maintains impressive storage capacity starting with the internal back panel sleeve which can hold a 2L hydration bladder. Upper back and dual access lower stretch stash pockets, plus two upper flat stretch pockets and two lower vest front stretch stash pockets keep multiple items secure while giving you easy access. We also love the rear bungee pole holder for easy on-the-go storage.

Go ahead and give it a try on your toughest runs in the rockiest terrains— you’ll see Rab has thought of just about everything. Bonus: the Veil is a fluorocarbon-free product, from a socially and environmentally conscious and certified Climate Neutral Company.

More about the product

Stay fuelled, hydrated, and prepared for any challenge out on the mountain, with our 6L capacity Veil 6 running vest. Perfect for long distances across rocky terrain, where on-the-go access to your water, snacks and other essentials is crucial, the lightweight construction feels worn rather than carried and offers multiple storage options.

The vest’s multi-directional Mono Mesh Chassis features stretch side panels and has been designed to support, reduce bounce and contour to your body, giving you complete freedom of movement as you push to the next summit. Form-fitting, lightweight and highly breathable, it is 50% lighter and retains 70% less water than alternative spacer mesh constructions, keeping moisture to a minimum when the gradient rises. The fully adjustable sternum fit system ensures a close fit without adding unnecessary weight.

The Veil 6 offers plenty of hydration options with two 500ml soft flasks (included) incorporated into the front, as well as a generous rear compartment which can hold a 2L water bladder alongside any essential layers. Secure pockets with ultralight zip pulls will keep your key or card safe, while further large stretch pockets provide easy access to snacks or gels. When not needed, poles can be quickly stowed away using the bungee pole holder.

Finished with 100% fluorocarbon-free DWR, the Veil 6 is built to keep you moving and minimise weight when every gram counts.
