As everyone keeps up with their New Year’s resolutions, runners are swiping up this clever backpack from Runtasty. Not only is it slim so it feels like a second skin, but it’s designed to stay put while you’re on the move.
No matter your skill level, the struggle is real when it comes to carrying the necessities while you’re out for a jog. Thankfully, this Running Mini Backpack Vest doesn’t feel like a backpack at all. It features two pockets, one of which is large enough to fit any tablet or smartphone under 8.5 inches. You can use the smaller one to stash your wallet, keys or cards. Need to listen to music while you move? There are two silicone holes in the pack for each headphone to fit through.

“The top pocket is deep and covers the entire length of the bag,” they said. “[It’s] great for storing lip gloss, wipes and music player or phone. I was able to adjust the bag for a snug fit that did not move at all when I ran! I honestly forgot it was even back there!”
Another shopper who only gave it four stars noted that the chest strap can fit “too close to the neck.”
“Fits everything I need for my shorter runs,” they wrote. “Quality is great. I would have given it 5 stars, but I didn’t like the upper strap. Too close to the neck. I couldn’t tighten it to make it fit correctly without it riding up into my neck. I would have preferred a chest strap.”
Every body is different, but if you’re in search of a pack that won’t weigh you down when you run, this may be the one.
