WE WERE THE FIRST. THEN WE WERE IMITATED BY EVERY COMPANY ON EARTH. WE’RE STILL THE BEST.
Constantly imitated but never surpassed, Signature Series® Vests changed the world of hydration forever, and our FIFTH version continues to make the crucial improvements competitors still are chasing. Four models to choose from, each in three sizes, and all of them are lighter, more durable, with a better fit.
Ultimate Direction's Race Vest 5.0 provides an 8.5L capacity for all the food, fluids and mandatory kit you require for racing. There are a number of great features on this streamlined race vest making it much more versatile than you might think. This pack is a perfect introduction vest for racers suitable to carry you through marathons to ultra distances. This vest is perfectly suited to the seasoned ultra runner who has honed their kit selection to perfection and won't be carrying any 'just in case' items but also works for anyone looking for a vest pack to carry a few spare layers, food and drinks on longer runs.
The cinch adjuster is ideal for quickly and easily tightening or loosening the vest with a simple pull of cords or push of a button. Adjustments on the fly allow you to stay focused on running while maintaining the comfort as the pack changes weight and shape as you use kit. The highly breathable mesh back increases comfort and allows sweat to move away from the body while the new stretch mesh material is softer, stretchier and lighter. Add into the mix the emergency whistle attached to every pack, two 500ml soft flasks that are included, the numerous range of drop, Velcro closure and zip pockets not to mention compression options make this is a seriously impressive package.
