Product Summary

The Black Diamond Distance 15 Pack is an ultra-durable day pack for adventurers and long-distance runners.

This vest is light but built to endure, and it’s comfortable even while running longer distances.

The top buckle makes it easy to adjust on the go, and the front pockets have more than enough space for snacks, keys, and a phone, setting you up for an all-day excursion.

The company claims their Distance fabric is 10 times stronger than steel, which tracks considering the vest is constructed of ripstop, a military-grade fabric.
