Ultimate direction elite athlete inspired ultra running vests now in stock!

Ultimate Direction is a hugely popular brand in the world of ultra running and here at Castleberg Outdoors we have just received our first drop of their fantastic kit. To ensure their equipment will perform on race day Ultimate Direction involve their elite athletes in the design and testing of their products.

The result is the Ultimate Direction Signature Series of three superb hydration vests which three of the best ultra runners in the world are proud to put their names against; the AK Race Vest, the SJ ultra Vest and the PB Adventure Vest. Each is made using Hex and Power mesh materials which conform to your body to ensure a snug fit snugly minimal bounce. All are made from the latest and lightest materials available yet are robust enough to stand up to the rigours of the trail. Each vest has a different focus but the same high quality design and manufacturing is evident throughout the range.

The Ultimate Direction AK Race Vest is designed by Anton Krupicka and is the lightest and most minimal pack of the Ultimate Direction Signature series. Weighing just 170g (without bottles) the AK Race Vest is ideal for those where every ounce counts. Despite its minimal design the vest still packs a punch with 2 600ml water bottles on the front shoulder straps and ample room in the 4.5L total capacity for essentials to see you through an event. With a single main compartment, 2 zipped wing pockets, gel pockets and a bungee cord, everything you need to carry can be.

The Ultimate Direction SJ Ultra Vest is designed by Scott Jurek and claims to offer the best weight to capacity ratio for any hydration pack currently available. Weighing just 213g (without bottles) with a 9.2L capacity it is easy to see why. This exceptional minimalist pack weight has been achieved by using the latest ultra-light, ultra-strong Cuben Fiber material which allows the main compartment to bellow without risking tearing. Multiple pockets and pole/ice axe attachments mean everything you need for ultra races is covered.


The Ultimate Direction PB Adventure Vest is designed by Peter Bakwin and has the largest carrying capacity of the Signature Range at 12L but its weight is still remarkably low 340g (without bottles). With multiple, easy to access pockets the PB Adventure pack is the ideal choice for longer events or faced paced mountain adventures.

For fast and light the Ultimate Direction Vests are hard to beat. They offer a comfortable, secure way to carry your water and other essentials.  The Ultimate Direction Signature Range packs are sure to be popular so get your order in soon before they are gone!
