Malmö, Sweden – April 29, 2021 – USWE (, designer of bounce-free backpacks and hydration packs for action sports, today announces two new advanced running vests, the Pace™ 2 and the Pace™ 8. Both packs feature USWE’s patented No Dancing Monkey™ suspension harness system, which holds the pack snug while allowing for a full range of motion and no restrictions on breathing during high levels of activity, meaning longer and more comfortable runs.

The new Pace™ 2 and 8 packs are designed for running, speed hiking, and ultrarunning, but the one-of-a-kind harness system and elastic side panels that expand along with the chest during physical exertion, the fit can be tailored to any need. The high ventilated mesh body provides air flow, helping keep the body cool during workouts. 

The new Pace™ vests are built for organization, with multiple easy-access pockets, 45-degree angled pockets with two 500ml Ultraflasks, energy/food shoulder pockets, two zippered stash back pockets, an integrated trekking pole carry system, and either 2L or 8L of total storage capacity. 

Additionally, with the Pace™ series USWE integrates the award-winning Polygiene™ Stays Fresh treatment, a durable technology that keeps the vest fresh and permanently odor free. 

“The Pace™ 2 and Pace™ 8 are a completely new development for our running vests,” said Karl-Johan Engdahl, USWE Founder. “These are lighter, more ergonomic, and made to go fast. The adjustable NDM™ Vest Harness System is designed to create a perfect fit on any body type, male and female, from a pro racer to an everyday running enthusiast. We’re confident that the Pace will be your go-to.”
