The Oman Desert Marathon is a superb race in the dunes of Oman, in self-sufficiency, i.e. each runner must be self-sufficient, bringing all his equipment, sleeping bag, as well as everything he needs for four days, with the exception of water, which will be provided at checkpoints every 10 km. There is a choice of 2 formats, Trail or Rando, with both sharing the same bivouacs, under Bedouin tents. All routes are signposted.
Find out more about the all-inclusive package, including flights, transfers, hotels before and after the race, and visits to Muscat and Daymaniyat Island here: www.trailtobealive.fr/oman-desert-marathon/
FRANCE FAB – 100% MADE IN FRANCE
At Raidlight we have been developing a range of products designed, manufactured and assembled in France since 2009. In 2014, Raidlight opened in Saint-Pierre-de-Chartreuse a modern, state-of-the-art Made in France textile workshop (laser, thermobonding etc.). Our products are light, innovative and dedicated to trail runners.
COMFORTABLE FOR TRAIL RUNNING WITH PRECISE ADJUSTMENT
With its "waistcoat" shape and two chest straps, it is worn close to the body, offering excellent support to avoid bouncing during the effort, especially during the descent. Its FreeLock tightening system on both sides allows for a precise and uniform fit that does not loosen during exercise. In addition, the two side straps give you a customised fit to perfectly adapt to your body.
In addition, its monofilament polyester material makes it an ultra-breathable bag that dries quickly for added comfort.
With a large storage capacity of 20L in the main pocket, you can safely store your gear with 7 easy access pockets. The main pocket on the back can accommodate a water bladder, 2 pockets containing 600ml flasks with straws allow you to drink easily without having to stop and twist. Thanks to its stretch pockets and 4 zipped pockets, you can carry your personal belongings in complete safety (keys, phone...). Its pole carrying system on the back will give you great freedom of movement.
In keeping with our commitment to environmental responsibility, the materials used in the manufacture of this product meet the requirements of the Bluesign and OekoTex international textile labels. They guarantee that no toxic substances have been used during production and certify that the fabric of this product respects commitments regarding energy and water consumption.
Un sac parfaitement conçu, léger, solide qui permet de transporter tout son matériel pour une course de plusieurs jours. Des poches sont accessibles sans enlever son sac et permettent de ranger téléphone, nourriture.
I bought this bag for the marathon des sables. The new design and adjustment possibilities are great, whilst keeping a minimalist design. The fabric seems super strong and the sidepockets are great. There are plenty of attachment points for poles, front pouch etc. Downsides; inner pouch flap is too short and allows water in. Front pouch and pole pouch need to be stitched by the user.
Sac véritablement ultra leger, et optimisé pour un poids minimum. Il est super confortable, et tiens bien sur le dos meme en étant bien chargé.
J'ai hate de le tester sur le MDS.
Quatres petites zones d'amélioration:
- Les sangles de poitrine ne sont pas réglables en hauteur, et en ce qui me concerne auraient méritees d'etre plus bas car elles creent une gene.
- Il manque peut etre une ou deux poches faciles d'acces (sans zip) sur l'avant pour ranger de la nourriture ou autre.
- Il y a une ouverture dans le dos entre la membrane et le mesh (j'imagine pour la poche a eau?) qui laisse passer la transpiration a l'interieur du sac. Mieux vaut donc emballer ses affaires.
- Taille M, tour de poitrine 93cm, je dois serrer le system freelock a fond et n'ai pas beaucoup de marge de manoeuvre
Handles volume well with stretchy fabric and exterior pockets you can reach while you are wearing the vest. No sway or bounce! You can run with this. I really tested its limits on a recent three day desert Packraft/fastpacking trip. I was impressed with how well it resisted red desert dirt and carried gear. Shoulder straps are inappropriate for carrying weight. (18 lbs) No stiffeners or padding so The shoulder straps’ edges reduce into a single strand and dig in.
