The Ultimate Direction Women's Ultra Vest 4.0 effectively balances weight and performance in providing at-the-ready hydration for long-distance trail running or ultra-lightweight fast packing. Despite weighing just 7.76 ounces (without bottles), the vest carries everything you need for long days on the trail.
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 lightweight SilNylon and breathable mesh, the vest is surprisingly strong and capable of comfortably carrying layers, gear, and hydration. To ensure a proper fit, the vest is available in Xsmall/Small (26"-38" chest measurement) and Medium (32"-41") size options. NOTE: When full of gear, the vest will fit smaller. An integrated Comfort Cinch system provides on-the-go fit adjustability across the small of your back without applying undue pressure to your lats. Dual sternum straps with sliding adjustability help you further fine-tune fit.
Storage options abound and the pack has a total storage capacity of 616 cubic inches. The main compartment offers ample storage for a 2L hydration bladder (not included), clothes, and other gear. A zig-zag bungee attachment system across the top of those compartments is ideal 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, each with a 500 ml capacity. Other features include additional zippered front harness pockets and phone-compatible harness pockets. An integrated attachment system allows you to efficiently carry folding trekking poles up front, keeping them out of the way but at the ready
