A belt that gives you more options so you can spend more time on the trails. With plenty of storage for 1L of fluids, foods, extra layers or other essentials this belt can save you taking a pack.
Ultimate Direction says:
As an alternative to a vest, the Ultra Belt holds two Body Bottle 500’s for long, hot days on the trail. Bounce-free fit and comfort with a MonoRip mesh back panel conforms to the body, enabling miles and miles to pass uninterrupted and secure. Compatible with the iPhone 8, the Ultra Belt brings a large volume of storage to fast and low profile package.
Ultimate Direction's Ultra Belt 4.0 is perfect for long days on the trails. With two 500ml soft bottles included there is a decent amount of hydration available for longer runs. However, you can easily leave one of the bottles and add extra kit to the pouch as the drawcord top still keeps things pretty secure.
There is one main compartment that zips closed and it is big enough for a shell jacket and phone or other accessories. The seasoned ultra runner/racer will probably be able to fit their entire mandatory kit in this belt but for mere mortals this is a good sized belt for longer runs. It is really comfortable to wear, even when fully loaded, with the micro mesh allowing sweat to wick and edges covered with soft material. The adjustablility of the Velcro belt strap is a massive plus and has made this vest my go-to kit for long runs in the hills.
