Fitting & Adjusting the Skyline 30 Fastpack

How to Pack The Skyline 30 Fastpack

The Issue With Other Fastpacks

We tried out nearly every fastpack on the market. And in one way or another, every pack was a disappointment:

Some bounced uncomfortably while in motion, others caused excessive rubbing & chafing, & others just didn’t have the right features to give us access to gear when we needed it most.

After nearly two years of intensive development, thousands of miles of rigorous testing & development, the Skyline 30 Fastpack is finally here.

One of the Toughest Lightweight Stretch meshes In the Industry

UltraStretch™ Mesh

Lightweight, durable, & tear-resistant UltraStretch™ is a 4-way stretch mesh woven with the highest quality fibers for performance & longevity gram for gram. It has a tensile strength 15x stronger than steel ULTRA™ fiber is incredibly lightweight & cut/abrasion resistant.

Better Fit & Less Bounce Than Other Options

Extension of the Body

The Skyline Fastpack is incredibly stable, especially when compared to other fastpacks. Multiple adjustment points allow you to fit the pack to your body & move without bouncing, rubbing, or chafing.

The Right Access In In The Right Places

Superior Organization & Access

With stretch pockets coving over 50% of the pack plus the intentional harness pocketing & organization, you'll never need to stop to access gear you need while on the go.

True Extension of your body

A better fit & full adjustability means adventuring your way without impediment.

On the right track but needs improvements

OV designed a good pack but not the best. The design (specifically the shoulder harness pockets) need more versatility. Some fast packers like simplicity, others like shoving as much stuff in the front as they can, for quick access (fast packing doesn’t just mean moving fast with the pack, but also means faster access to things you use more often). I agree with above comments on the space of the water bottle pockets. They need stretchier collar seams and a deeper fold to allow more space. I should be able to take out my water bottle, fill it with water, and put it back in. Instead, I have to spend time opening the zipper and moving things around. I know OV sent the bag to Jeff Pellitier for testing, and there's a reason why he likes Solomon - their pockets are well designed with enough stretch to fit as much as you can in them or not and still have a tight fit on the body.

Randal White

Great quality in the product but the sizing is totally off. I'm 6'2" and ordered the Large. I confirmed via chat that they only have a "M/L." The bottom of the pack was 3-4" above my hips. I wanted to keep it as it was a really nice pack but waaaay to small.

On top of that I had to pay $11.95 TO RETURN A MISLABELED item.

Hey Randal,
Sorry for the confusion. The fastpack is designed to ride higher than your hips. It is not a traditional backpack, but is built for running. It should fit much more like a running vest, and the waist built (for stabilization only - not load lift) should go around your belly button.

A Great Minimalist Fastpack

I purchased this because I wanted a larger carrying capacity than my 20L. I’ve worn it on a number of trail runs to see how it feels with a base weight of 10lbs. With a number of fitment adjustments it barely moves. I also loaded it fully (about 20 lbs) for a 25-mile hike. I did have to readjust the straps with the heavier load and couldn’t quite find the sweet spot for heavy carries, though I expect that will come in time.

I appreciate what OV is doing in the ultralight and fastpacking space and recommend their products.

Skyline 30 Fastpack

I haven't had a chance to use my pack yet, but it seems to fit great and I'm pretty certain I'm going to love it!!

David Ward

I just got back from my first overnight with the Skyline Fastpack. This pack carries more like a vest than some of my actual running vests. The suspension and harness are intuitive and easy to dial in. The water bottles are the perfect size, and the bottle pockets are placed perfectly. The bottom pass-through pocket is AWESOME! Everything about this pack feels thought through and refined. I have another brand’s fastpack which I’ll be selling on eBay.
