Salomon XT Advanced Skin S-Lab 5 Set Product Details

First at foremost, we love this running pack because it is a product designed to offer high utility value. It proves to be most useful when you are out in the wild on challenging trails that require you to hop, jump, and make fast twists and movements. In fact, it looks almost more like a race vest! The fact that it is made of ripstop nylon & polyester mesh is a plus for runners because it makes the pack quite easy to carry around while also enhancing breathability. Importantly, these stretchy fabrics make it possible for the pack to easily conform to your body shape. We think it’s a great choice for anyone looking for a high-quality product at a competitive price.

It is equally important to know that Salomon XT Advanced Skin S-Lab 5 Set comes with a high quality, patented, dehydration reservoir, which hold up to 1.5 liters of liquid. The best part of this reservoir is that the drink tube routes are articulately designed for high performance, while a bite valve just under your right arm makes it possible to drink water while on the go. In more simple terms, you don’t need to stop for a water break anymore!

The pack also has a number of compartments where you can store away your items. And if you are carrying clothing with you, then the large compartment will help you a great deal. Furthermore, you will enjoy the benefits of having two shoulder strap pockets that you can also use to carry a few bottles of water. Additionally, two zippered side pockets provide additional storage that you can use for food and other necessary items you might be carrying around.

It is much easier to balance the load when using this bag and also keep the pack secure. This is made possible by the load lifter straps that are not only strong but also specially designed for better performance, not to mention dual sternum straps that ensure not much everything is secure and not pressure is directed to your chest

If you are running at night, the reflective hits will definitely increase visibility. And so, it becomes even easier to use this product where there is low light intensity. The emergency whistle and safety blanket are a great addition that can come in handy at any given time in case something goes wrong.


The Salomon XT Advanced Skin S-Lab 5 Set is a great running pack that is quite easy to disconnect. It comes with a number of zippered pockets and is most likely to sit high on users’ backs. It does not cost a fortune, yet it offers users a high functionality rate. Overall, we think it’s worth every penny and would make a great invest for any serious runner.
