Here’s my review of the Harrier Curbar 5L & Kinder 10L running vests that are amazing value for money at only £54 and £59 respectively.

Transparency – I helped with the design of these packs last year, going through all the packs I’ve tested over many years with founder Kate Mackenzie. For more pack reviews see this playlist here.

We talked about all the features we’d really like to see on every running pack and the Harrier Curbar 5L and Kinder 10L packs were created after that, and also a great deal of input from Kate’s testers on the hill. 

So that’s one of the reasons I rate these packs so highly. The other is the amazing price. Selling online online and as a very small company, Kate is able to sell high-quality Harrier products at much lower prices than more established brands. 

Eco-wise I am also really impressed that Harrier are also looking into recycled fabrics for their t-shirts, using recycled packaging and doing their best to make durable gear that lasts for years.
