Using a Vector with an inline capacity as a stack allocated variable will prevent it from mallocing a backing store until you've exceeded InlineCapacity number of elements. You should read the entire vector class to get a better idea of what I'm saying, but at a high level, it has a field like this:

template <typename T, size_t InlineCapacity>
class Vector {
     T m_inlineVector[InlineCapacity];
