Since 1985 Ultimate Direction has been making the finest ultralight running and fast packing gear on the market. Their Signature series features packs co-designed with trailing running and ultramarathon champions. In its third iteration, the SJ Ultra Vest (named for famed runner and Appalachian Trail record holder Scott Jurek) is refined for serious punishment. Every feature from the mesh bottle holders to the dual sternum straps has carefully been tested to maximize comfort while reducing weight. The result is a running pack that you’ll never want to part from. Ours has seen long hours of technical trails and pulls double duty on SUP workouts when we need a little extra hydration. If you’re hoping for a PR on a 50k trail race this year, this is the race vest that will help get you there.
