A TRAIL RUNNING GILET DESIGN TO SAVE WEIGHT
AND MAKE YOU GO FAST
Improve your performance during fast races and training sessions thanks to this lightweight, comfortable trail running gilet. Its slim fit and snug support will make you forget you are wearing it during your trail runs.
MORE COMPARTMENTS AND BETTER ACCESSIBILITY
Thanks to your reviews and feedback, we’ve added more storage to this new gilet. You can easily carry and reach all your equipment during your trail runs. There are now diagonally-sewn pockets and a kangaroo pocket at the back to make items more accessible when running. The kangaroo pocket is particularly useful for carrying your windbreaker — just slip it on when faced with varying mountain conditions!
TAKE ALL YOUR ESSENTIALS THANKS TO THE 12 POCKETS
The gilet has 12 pockets for carrying all your accessories.
7 pockets at the front:
– 2 pockets for your 2 x 500 ml soft water bottles
– 1 zip pocket for your smartphone
– 4 pockets for your food and waste, 1 of which has a 110 dB rescue whistle, and 5 pockets at the back, including the easily accessible kangaroo pocket, for carrying all your mandatory race equipment: a wind jacket, a survival blanket, a torch, your documents, etc.
A GILET WITH OPTIMAL SUPPORT THAT ADAPTS TO YOUR BODY SHAPE
No more bouncing accessories while you run! With this gilet, your equipment does not move around thanks to the stretch component and slim fit. It adapts to your body shape with a notch-tightening system. Adjust the height of the straps to adapt it to your chest size. Improved support at the bottom of the gilet thanks to a new elastic strip, while maintaining optimal comfort. You’ll forget you have this gilet on while you run!
HOW TO MANAGE YOUR HYDRATION WITH A 5L GILET
The two front pockets are designed to hold two 500-mL soft flasks which you can drink from without taking them out of their pocket. You can easily add a third 500-mL flask to the rear net pocket (lying it horizontally) as some races require you to carry 1.5 L of water.
you can even take your poles using the quiver that attaches to the gilet
The gilet has clips for attaching the Evadict trail quiver and carrying your poles without your pockets getting in the way, even when full. You can easily access and store your poles with this smart and simple system. Perfect for helping you on the technical sections of the race!
Lucie, our Evadict designer, tested the full equipment on the 23 km of the Mont Blanc event: “the gilet / quiver / 3-strand trail pole trio really helped my performance on this trail!”
INTRODUCING THE TEAM BEHIND THE GILET
The foursome behind this idea is made up of Thierry the product manager, Nicolas the product engineer, Juliette the prototyper and garment designer, and Lucie the designer. They are proud to present a product that they have been fine-tuning for several years to make your races easier and leave you free to enjoy the experience.
AN ECO-DESIGNED BAG with recycled components
As part of the desired improvements for this 5 L gilet, it is made from 60% recycled textile components.
How do you attach the quiver to the 5L trail running gilet?
The quiver attaches diagonally to the 5L trail running gilet; you choose whether on the right or left shoulder:
1. feed the strap on the back of the quiver into the hook on the gilet’s right or left shoulder
2. position the quiver diagonally
3. take the magnet at the end of the drawcord and feed it into the slit in the synthetic piece on which the word “Quiver” is written
4. also feed the drawcord toggle into the slit
5. put the collapsed poles into the quiver and put the bag on your back.
Forget about your poles when you've put them away!
Thanks to the properly tightened drawcord, your poles don’t move when you run. So once you’ve put on the gilet and properly attached the quiver, you need to tighten this drawcord correctly:
– pull on the drawcord with one hand and press the drawcord toggle onto the synthetic piece with the other hand as hard as you like – to avoid having a hanging drawcord, bring the magnet onto the tongue located just under the quiver to magnetize it.
And put them away quickly:
The quiver’s innovative system brings it into your field of vision so that you can easily put away your poles:
– once your poles are collapsed and you’re holding them both in one hand, grab hold of the quiver with your other hand and bring it into sight
– insert the poles into the quiver and let it drop back
– tighten up the drawcord again using the drawcord toggle to block the poles and put the magnet back under the quiver.
A quiver designed to make things simple for runners!
To help you go even faster and perform better on your runs, we have designed an innovative, very easy-to-use sliding system. It enables you to pull your quiver forwards without undoing it, to easily slide in and pull out your poles.Nicolas, a Kalenji product engineer, explains: “The guiding word for us during this design work was: simplicity. We needed to ensure that you could take out and put back your poles as easily as possible, without stopping.”
Compatible with the 5L gilet and 3-section poles.
The 5 litre Evadict gilet features quiver attachments. You can therefore carry all your accessories in the gilet and your 3-section poles in the quiver to set off well-equipped on an adventure. The gilet and quiver were designed together to make your runs practical and comfortable. Even with all the gilet’s pockets full and the poles stored away, you have great freedom of movement, without anything hindering you to run.
Why carry this quiver on your long-distance runs?
Thierry, an Evadict product manager and ultra-distance trail runner, explains why this innovative system on the quiver could be useful: “When you’re running with two 3-section poles, putting them back into your quiver while you’re running and can’t see what you’re doing, just when you’re starting to get tired, is a real hassle! Being able to pull forward your quiver and see the entry point to easily put away your poles changes everything!”
