There are plenty things to annoy you while running. At the top of the list is a pack that won’t stay put. You know the kind — it shifts from one side to another, bounces up and down and has a zipper that won’t fully close. Consider a low-profile style like Nathan’s Shadow Pak not just a wise alternative, but also an investment toward your inner zen.

A very distant cousin to the bulky fanny pack, the Shadow Pak is designed to carry essentials like keys and cash. It also has an incorporated ID card to list critical information for emergency personnel. Its stretchable mesh pocket keeps items secure and can expand to fit devices such as a smart phone. The Pak’s elastic waistband is adjustable, with limited stretch to keep it from moving mid-run. Its featherweight buckle provides unobtrusive fastening. Combined with the Pak’s lightweight, it’s easy to forget that you’re even wearing it. The reflective accents offer nighttime safety, and a quick reminder it’s there.

One size fits all. The Shadow Pak is available in a range of colors, including purple, blue, green, pink and black. Price is $24. Visit the manufacturer’s website at www.nathansports.com for more details.
