Ultimate Direction Race Vest

Ultimate Direction, Signature Series Race Vests.

Using state-of-the-art materials & designs to make athlete-Inspired Hydration Packs. Ultimate Direction makes the lightest hydration packs & water belts for running & endurance sports.

The running vests Scott Jurek, Anton Krupicka and Peter Bakwin designed were incredibly successful, but the boys thought of some great improvements for Signature Series 2.0. For additional durability, they switched from Cuben Fiber to Silnylon 66, beefed up all the mesh and bungy cords, and added edge binding to the stretch pockets on all three vests. For easier sizing and a better fit, they added lateral adjustment straps on Scott’s and Peter’s vests. Those two vests now have a third zipper for easier access to an optional internal bladder. Anton's vest is more streamlined without the pockets at the bottom of the main compartment. And finally, everything has been updated with Ultimate Direction's new color and logo.

AK Race Vest

AK Race Vest

Designed by Anton Krupicka, the AK Race Vest brings minimalism to the world of hydration. Even though it weighs in at only 7 ounces (12.5 with bottles), the AK Race Vest still has plenty of capacity for food, clothing, and a phone, so you can use this vest for anything from 10 to 100 miles.
