The Ultimate Direction Women’s Adventure Vesta is the big sister of the popular Ultra Vesta, effectively balancing weight and performance for women while providing at-the-ready hydration for long-distance trail running, endurance racing, or ultra-lightweight fastpacking.
The vest was designed for Ultimate Direction by a group of female athletes known as the Women’s Collective who incorporated their ideas and trail experiences into the creation of several female-focused gear pieces. With an ergonomic shape and women’s specific fit, the vest was made to perform flawlessly by female runners for female runners.
Constructed of highly-breathable mesh and 70D nylon ripstop fabrics, the Women’s Adventure Vesta weighs in at just 10.3 ounces while providing 549 cubic inches of storage capacity to carry everything you need for a full day on the trail. To ensure a proper fit, the vest is available in Xsmall/Small (26"-38" chest measurement) and Medium/Large (32"-41") sizes. NOTE: When full of gear, the vest will fit smaller. Hidden Velcro side adjustment straps and dual sternum straps with sliding adjustability help you further customize fit.
There are two vertical-zippered pockets and one horizontal pocket in which a 2L hydration bladder (not included) can be safely stowed. A zig-zag bungee attachment system is a perfect spot for securing gloves, discarded layers, or other items you want to keep readily accessible. On the chest portion of the harness there are large front pockets which conveniently secure electronics or water bottles. Ultimate Direction includes two soft-sided Body Bottles with 500 ml capacity. Other features include two additional zippered front harness pockets, phone-compatible harness pockets, on-the-go trekking pole attachment points, an emergency whistle, and dual ice axe loops.
