Ultimate Direction Ultra Vesta 5.0


Ultimate Direction is known for harnessing the skills of its female designers to create the first women's-specific hydration vest. Now several generations later, it should come as no surprise that their Ultra Vesta still leads the industry in comfort and usefulness for female athletes, thanks to its women’s specific shaping. At just over 10 liters of storage, the Ultra Vesta is the perfect companion for runs that require ample food, water, layers, and whatever gear you need to get the job done. But don’t worry, it’s not just 10 liters of slop. Because the vest sits close to the body and is combined with the lightweight Comfort Cinch 2.0, it won’t bog you down while you’re moving through steep terrain. There are multiple zip-secure pockets, including one weather-resistant, and front mesh pockets to keep things organized and the weight dispersed. The Ultra Vesta’s proven track record means it’s guaranteed to be there for you when you’re shattering your own personal best.

  • 10.3 Liters of carrying volume for all the essentials and then some.
