Zac Speed Octane Tech Vest

Made from a durable1680D fabric, the Octane Tech Vest has been designed to offer a versatile increase in storage ability for the extra gear you require on the fly. With multiple pockets easily accessible whilst being worn, life just got a whole lot easier. Being able to interchange the Octane Tech Vest when needed significantly adds to the versatility and load carrying ability of any CONFIGR8 pack system.

The Octane Vest can be easily attached to any CONFIGR8 backpack via our unique tool free Ladder Lock System. Once connected there are nine easily adjustable positions to ensure a custom fit. Comfort is assured with a soft-vented mesh liner and two removable Nitrile EVA foam padding inserts.
