Taking the streamlined design that has made Ultimate Direction Signature Series running vests so popular the Fastpack 30 enables hikers and adventurers to push deep into the backcountry at a pace not possible in a larger more cumbersome pack.
The Fastpack 30 is constructed of lightweight but durable SilNylon and breathable mesh. Despite weighing just 24.8 ounces the pack can effectively carry two full water bottles (not included) a full hydration bladder (sold separately) and a ton of backcountry essentials. Padded/ventilated strapping and edging throughout the pack body provide a comfortable fit and breathable performance. Ultimate Direction’s unique InfiKnit construction incorporates the shoulder straps and backpanel into a single seamless piece that greatly cuts down on hot spots and maximizes comfort and fit. A foam interior pad provides cushioning and can be removed entirely to shave weight. Dual sternum straps with sliding adjustability help you to really dial in fit. The pack is available in Small/Medium (24"-40" chest measurement) and Medium/Large (32"-46") sizes. NOTE: When full of gear the vest will fit smaller.
The Fastpack 30 has one sizable 1892 cubic inch (31L) main compartment. A highly water-resistant roll-top closure protects contents and enables the pack to cinch down to a compact 1220 cubic inches (20L). Integrated side compression straps also help in load stabilization whether the pack is full or relatively empty. On the face of the pack is a large elastic shove-it pocket that easily stows discarded layers and other essential gear. Large mesh side pockets are ideal for water bottles or other gear. On the chest portion of the harness there are multiple pockets two of which are ideal for carrying two water bottles (sold separately).
The Ultimate Direction Fastpack 30 also features numerous lash points including dual low-profile daisy chains trekking pole attachments and ice axe loops.
