Remember that time you worked hard to break your own personal best on a competitive trail? That’s how the Ultimate Direction designers must feel with the fifth generation of the Ultra Vest. Always tinkering and adjusting, this version is even more comfortable for logging big days on neverending trails and faraway peaks. Now lighter, more durable, and featuring the latest Comfort Cinch 2.0 and shoulder strap shaping, this vest ups the ante from previous versions. Just shy of 11 liters of carrying capacity, the Ultra Vest can carry almost anything you could want on a long run but without the slop and bulk you might expect. The pockets are placed perfectly to keep you organized and efficient when wasting time is not on the agenda.
