Our View: Ultimate Direction FKT Vest:
The all new Ultimate Direction FKT Vest has been developed and tested in collaboration with ultra-runner Peter Bakwin with extreme adventures in mind. Taking on board everything that Ultimate Direction have learnt from their hugely successful range of running packs the new FKT vest takes design and function to another level.
With a capacity of 18 litres the FKT will carry everything you need and more and thanks to the ability to securely stash additional gear on the outside you’ll never run out of space. Remarkably the pack weighs only 345g meaning you certainly won’t be weighed down.
Designed with a roll top closure similar to the Ultimate Direction Fastpacks the FKT can be compressed to ensure there is minimal movement of the gear inside. There is also an integrated compression on the fly via the bungee. Additional pockets on the front allow you to carry fluid and/or essentials close to hand.
The new FKT vest takes everything that is great about Ultimate Direction and incorporates it into a pack perfectly designed for taking on the most extreme challenges.
