OMM backpacks offer a range of sizes to suit any distance or kit requirements. The first OMM pack was released back in 1974 when it revolutionised the world of outdoor gear. Since then, we have continued to push the boundaries of what is possible, seeking out the newest fabrics and latest technologies to make carrying kit that bit more comfortable.

Backpack or RaceVest?
And when is a backpack a vest!? A backpack normally uses a more traditional shoulder strap system, alongside a waistbelt and/or sternum strap fro stability. A vest is more like a piece of clothing, with fabric wrapping around the torso, both for stability and also allowing for extra pockets and storage. Backpacks are generally suited to larger loads as they can have more padding on the straps and weight through the waistbelt. However, the benefits of a racevest, with its accessable storage on the move, we have tried to incorporate some of those features, alongside the fit and stability to larger loads in order to create VestPacks such as the Phantom 25.
Can I Wash My Backpack?
Yes! Its a good idea to occasionally wash away all that sweat, dirt and oil that accumulates through regular use of your Backpack. Just check all the pockets for forgotten jelly babies and fivers, undo the zips and remove any foam padding from the back system plus any other removables such as pegs. Use a quick cycle and a specific outdoor wash then line dry; done! More Info Here
Men's & Women's Backpacks?
Nope! Since all our backpacks are designed for running, they ride high on the back away from the running motion of the hips. This means back lenths is less of an issue and we are able to have a good degree of adjustability, to suit a range of body shapes, in the harness and shoulder straps. Some of our larger backpack sizes are better suited to larger frames, such as the Classic 32 whereas the smaller Phantom 18 would be a good choice for a smaller frame but they are both unisex.
What's the volume?
The number quoted after most of our backpacks denotes its total volume, though stretch mesh panels and waistbelt pockets usually add a little extra to that total!
