Item # SAL2818


The daypack designed for endurance athletes who move fast.

You wouldn't drive a minivan in a car race, so why take your typical day-hiking pack on a trail run? Salomon created the Agile 12 Hydration Backpack so you can run with all the gear and water you need, without feeling like there's a monkey on your back. Snug and streamlined, this pack matches the contours of your upper back and shoulders in such a way that it simply feels like an extension of your body. Stretch material allows the hip belt to flex as needed, and quick-access water bottle pockets keep additional hydration just a quick reach away. Although the Agile 12 shares its P.A.C.E. fit system with the Skin Pro pack, Salomon's engineers were careful to differentiate the two by giving the Agile 12 a more traditional v-shape main compartment and shoulder straps and additional storage capacity. For running, riding, or fast hiking, few packs can hold a candle to the Agile 12.

  • High-denier face fabric makes this pack lightweight, quick-drying, and highly resistant to wear and tear
  • Fabrics are PVC-free so you don't have to worry about harmful chemicals rubbing against your skin
  • P.A.C.E. Fit System relieves pressure on the soft part of your upper body (around your stomach and internal organs), instead focusing its support at the upper part of your back and chest and closer to your center of gravity
  • Harness Construction uses lightweight shoulder straps and a v-shape pack design to offer more storage space than the Skin Pro packs without sacrificing agility or stability
  • Soft Twinlink straps stretch across the chest and between the shoulder straps to keep the pack in place without restricting your freedom to breathe
  • Load lifters allow you to adjust the fit of the shoulder straps and positioning of the pack when you're running
  • Wide Motion hip belt clips at the center and features stretch material to create a snug fit without restricting your movement or riding up when you run
  • Storage options include a large main compartment for additional layers and other gear, mesh side pockets for quick water access, and a belt pocket for gels or nutrition
  • 4D Pole Holder gives you a secure way to attach your hiking poles to this pack when they're not of use
  • Included 1.5L hydration bladder slips into a dedicated pocket and drinking tube routing goes under your arm instead of over your shoulder
  • Drinking tube features a bite valve with an on/off system so you won't loose precious ounces of hydration by mistake

Light weight travel option

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Decided to purchase this pack for short hikes, travel and the occasional theme park visit. The other candidate I considered was one of the Pacsafe slings, but reviews about shoulder fatigue deterred me from the idea. I also have a Maxpedition Falcon II, which I do like, but it's heft and military styling seems better suited for the outdoors.
I use the pack mainly to carry a 40oz Hydroflask, snacks, sunblock and first aid. I removed the hydration bladder and left it's compartment empty (one day I plan to try it, but for now I have no interest in cleaning it). It's comfortable enough for a 150lb man 5'10" tall down to a 115lb woman 5' tall. It ventilates well, and has a simple and subtle appearance. Overall satisfied with this backpack, may purchase the smaller version for my wife.

Great for run-commuting

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

After reading the entire internet, I bought this for my run-commute. I pack it up in the morning with exercise clothes and shoes, commute to work like a civilized person on the metro, then change at the end of my day to run home. The backpack stays in place, is very light, all the straps cinch down enough to keep the pack from moving around, and it's big enough to store a change of clothes and basic purse stuff (wallet, phone, keys, chapstick, work badge, metrocard, etc.) It's exactly what I wanted and I love it.

And your review is exactly the review I've been looking for as I, too, have been scouring the internet looking for a good pack to do exactly what you're doing. Thanks for taking the time.

Light and comfy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Not much to say except this pack fits great, lightweight , and holds all I need. The sternum strap is great, does not slide up when riding or running, the "vest" fit is super comfy and keeps the pack from moving around. I highly recommend for the mtn sport enthusiast that is needing to replace their heavy, stiff hydration pack for something more performance inspired.
