The perfect pack for ultra-running
Farewell Salomon S-Lab Sense Ultra 3 Set vest pack. It is four years since we met, united in our purpose to run wilder trails. Today we are nearing the sad finale. The moment when one of us has been stretched just one too many times. Farewell Bestie – my Salomon S-Lab Sense Ultra 3 Set vestpack!
My Salomon S-Lab Sense Ultra 3 Set vest pack has accompanied me on so many missions that I cannot name them all. South Coast Track, Overland Track, Federation Peak, Frenchman’s Cap, Larapinta, Dolomitii Skyrace, Hong Kong Skyrace… together we have travelled far and wide in search of the favourite trails.

Welcome Salomon S-Lab Sense Ultra 8 Set vestpack
Now approaching retirement, I have replaced this beloved friend with the Salomon S-Lab Sense Ultra 8 Set. I believe that the virtues of these Salomon S-Lab vestpacks are too often overlooked, with most people not realizing their capability of travelling the longer distances.
