The ladies spoke and Ultimate Direction listened!

With 12.4 litres volume the Adventure Vesta can take all the compulsory gear you need for ultra-distance events and then some making this a great choice if you like to set-off and keep going.
The main volume is located in the large zip round compartment at the back which opens fully so you are able to get to the contents at the bottom without having to empty it out. There is also a separate hydration bladder pocket which means you can refill your reservoir quickly and easily. On the outside of the main compartment there is a large stretch pocket that you stuff additional gear in and over that there is an elasticated bungee cord that be used to compress the load if using the pack not fully loaded or to lash further items to the pack such as layers you remove on the go.
Up front there is a single soft flask specific pocket supplied with one Body Bottle 500 and another zip closed pocket that can also take a bottle if needed or items you want to access quickly. There are multiple pockets both zip and mesh which can all be accessed on the go.
Fit wise the Ultimate Direction Adventure Vesta 4.0 is exceptional thanks to the precision fit and on the fly adjustments of the New Cinch Technology that pulls the sides of the pack in to create a close, clothing like fit. Furthermore, the materials have been chosen to mould to your body shape and thus reduce movement and potential rubbing and irritation.
