Drawing on the expertise of champion ultra-runner Scott Jurek, the Ultimate Direction SJ Ultra Vest effectively balances weight and performance in providing at-the-ready hydration for long-distance running or racing. Two 20 oz sport bottles included.
Adventurer Peter Bakwin has run more than 75 marathons and ultramarathons and established numerous “fastest known times”, all while searching for the perfect pack. Now with Ultimate Direction's help, he built his own, the PB Adventure Vest.
A great option for casual joggers or higher-mileage runners, the Ultimate Direction Fastdraw Plus handheld water bottle provides 20 ounces of on-the-go hydration and storage for keys, your I.D., credit cards, etc. Available in your choice of colors.
Reflecting Anton Krupicka's minimalist approach, the ultra-lightweight (6 oz) Ultimate Direction AK Race Vest incorporates the hydration (two 20oz bottles) and storage features you truly need for a day of trail running while skipping anything extraneous.
Ultimate Direction literally invented the entire concept of a specific pack to carry water with you when running, hiking, skiing or climbing. That was back in 1986. Continuing to innovate, Ultimate Directions welcomes you “to the future of the original.”
