Built especially for ultra racing or long-distance self supported runs, the inov-8 Race Ultra 5 running vest pack delivers an excellent fit, organizational options, and at the ready hydration. It weighs in at just 9 ounces and has a 5 liter storage capacity.
The nylon/polyester mesh construction of the vest provides a close-to-the-body fit that reduces unnecessary bounce and keeps the pack comfortably in place. To ensure a proper fit, the pack is available in Small/Medium (fits chest sizes measuring 31”-38”) and Medium/Large (38”-44”) size options. Dual, sliding sternum straps enable you to dial in the fit.
There are a number of thoughtfully-positioned pockets on the Race Ultra 5. A large weather-resistant main compartment is accessed through a broad zipper that runs across the top of the packbag. This pocket has ample room for clothes and gear and also incorporates a lined internal sleeve that can accommodate a hydration reservoir (sold separately). Large stretch lateral pockets also help to keep gloves, discarded layers, and other items in easy reach. A zipperless design on a number of front harness pockets cuts down on weight and also grants easier access while you’re on the run. Stretch “lids” keep contents safely in place. Four small “up front” pockets stash gels, keys, and other essentials. Two lower zippered harness pockets are ideal for soft-sided water bottles but are large enough to safely stow other gear too. Two inov-8 Soft Flask 0.5 w/ 12 inch Tube flasks are included and have silicone bite valves that allow you to hydrate without breaking stride or fiddling to put hands on bottles.
Additional features include an integrated trekking pole carry system (poles not included) and an external bungee cord gear attachment system.
