"The Phantom 18 is a slimline VestPack for adventure racing. Stabilised around your spine, our unique 7-point harness connects the pack with the runner’s spine via a top yoke-style harness to provide the most stable carry possible. The yoke harness also frees the shoulders allowing a more energy efficient-running action. Dual V-shaped anchors hug the waist to provide a secure fit and control bounce and swing when on uneven ground.
The shorter back length is well suited to smaller frames or shorter backs. Tested on the 330km Tor Des Géants race during development and used by the OMM hill team in extreme conditions. It passed. Combining the capacity of a pack with the upfront accessibility of a vest, ideal for multi-day racing or ultra challenges where regular stops to grab kit aren’t an option."
Stabilised around your spine, the Phantom Suspension system utilises a narrow yoke behind the neck to attach the pack to the spine rather than the shoulders allowing the shoulders to move freely increasing the efficiency of your action.
Two shock absorbing suspension cords over the shoulder work in tandem to further reduce swing, keeping the pack in line with the spine. The weight of the pack is taken by the yoke attachment point with shock absorption and seing controlled by the tensioned bungees over each shoulder.
Vertical movement is reduced by two equalised anchor points fed to a shared adjuster. This creates a very stable Y-shape that hugs the vest pack into the lower spine. When the runner pushes off, the weight pulls on the lower strap, as the runner drops back down the upper strap tightens preventing the shoulder loosening.
