Ergonomically designed for women, the Ultimate Direction Ultra Vesta Hydration Vest is the perfect companion for everything from a tough hike to a long run to an anticipated race, and features optimal storage and fit. Designed by Jenny Jurek with help from the Women's Collective, the 2014 Trail Runner Magazine Gear of the Year Award winning Ultra Vesta is ergonomically shaped to fit perfectly and perform flawlessly. The plan was to select the best features from all the Signature Series vests, combine them into one great product, then re-design the shape to specifically fit women. The result is front strap-mounted holsters that offer quick, immediate access to twin 10 ounce water bottles, which are concave against the body, are positioned higher on the chest, and can be folded flat when not in use. The larger volume pockets located low in the front keep your phone, camera, salt tablets, or gels within easy reach while on the move. The main compartment will accommodate a 70 oz reservoir (sold separately) and plenty of gear, and there is an additional horizontal pocket in the rear for quick organization of special items. External and internal bungee cords stabilize the load while the two sternum straps and side adjustment straps give you a customized fit and eliminate bouncing.

The Ultimate Direction Women's Ultra Vesta Running Hydration Vest offers increased hydration capacity and roomier front storage, all while weighing less than its predecessor. This hydration vest fulfills the needs of athletes crushing distance runs, ice climbs, and demanding hikes in the backcountry. Two fully collapsible Body Bottle 500s (17-ounces each) keep you hydrated during intense efforts. Plus, it easily accommodates a two-liter reservoir within its large front compartment for extra hydration capacity on the hottest days of the year. There's also a mesh pouch for partitioning wet gear and clothing from the rest of the pack. Adjusting precisely to conform to your upper body, the side-adjustable shoulder straps and sliding rail sternum straps provide a fine-tuned fit when you're moving fast. Moisture-wicking material along the shoulder straps and back panel prevents perspiration build-up, which is especially important when you're pushing your physical limits in stifling weather. Other run-friendly features include drop-in pockets along the shoulder straps for easy-access to energy gels and trail snacks.
