By Alice Morrison

Multi Day Running Pack Group Test

By Luke Jarmey

Running packs are perhaps one of those unsung heroes of running product design. It can be rather tricky to produce a bag that is light, able to carry your required kit and at the same time remain comfy, ie not bounce around, whilst you run.
