The SJ Ultra Vest 2.0 was the best-selling vest in the world and Scott Jurek's new FKT Vest is even better.
I love this pack. Its my first Hydration pack so to be honest I can't compare it to anything else... but it fits me just perfect. No bouncing around, and the new bottles fit nice and tight to your chest. I love the pockets all over the place. In my limited use with it so far, it has all the space I think I'd need. Two comments though.
1)The cell phone pocket is too small for anything other bigger than an iPhone 4/5.
2)The new Flexform bottles fit great in the vest, but the bottles are more difficult to drink from than the Kicker valve bottle tops - I'm hoping I just need to get used to them.
I would recommend this product to others! Paul B on Apr 18th 2017
I liked the soft flasks that came with the 3.0. But overall the fit of the 3rd generation vests just didn't work for me. Back of the neck was too high and the shoulders were too roomy.
Ive only got 40 miles on this vest so far, but I'm so glad they came out with it. It keeps the structure of the 2.0, but with vast improvements. The flat bottles are incredibly comfortable. The added up front storage is perfect for a pair of shades or big items and they really cleaned up the confusing zipper access in the back portion.
My favourite thing about this vest is how the flasks now sit low at the front bottom portion of the vest, rather than half way up your chest. This somehow makes sloshing virtually unoticable and keeps things even closer to your body so it's not bouncing and shifting when your really tearing up a trail.
Great work! Unknown on Mar 22nd 2017
New to distance running but have been wearing the vest on all my runs and find it extremely comfortable. Phone pocket barely fits my droid turbo 2 but it fits. Only complaint if there is one is that it had a key hook somewhere. I see this complaint for many vests from many manufacturers and never understood not adding one.
Overall happy with the vest, excited to try it for my first ultra. Clint on Mar 13th 2017
Received my new Scott Jurek FKT vest late last week. I was able to take it for a test run on Saturday - 21 miles of trails! The vest fits me perfectly. I purchased a large and all I can say is well done Ultimate Direction! My previous vest was an original PB Adventure vest. I can honestly say that vest never came close to fitting me as pefectly as this new FKT vest does. I must say that also really like the new bottles! So far, so good. I am very pleased with my purchase. Unknown on Mar 6th 2017
A very comfortable vest. This was my first vest and was looking for something for the 8 plus mile runs. There are lots of available adjustments on the vest to fit you perfectly. I was also happy that the front pocket was able to fit my S5 with no problem. I have to admit that my first pack I purchased had a broken strap and a bottle leaked. But the customer service with Ultimate Direction was above and beyond. They took care of the problem right away. Customer for life. #goodjobrunnerclub Daniel N. on Jan 16th 2017
Scott and UD nailed it with this vest! I love the new bottle shape. Easy to hold, comfortable fit in the vest, these bottles are a great update to the Jurek collection.
The vest dials in to comfort with ease. I can carry a 70oz bladder in the back, if needed, and still have ample storage for a jacket, nutrition, and other necessities.
In one run this has become my go-to vest! It's exactly what I was looking for. Joey on Nov 22nd 2016
