Our View - Ultimate Direction Ultra Vesta 4.0:
The original Ultimate Direction Ultra Vesta was a huge hit with our female customers and this year the alterations look to only improve what was a fantastic trail running pack. Ultimate Direction don’t take a ‘shrink it and pink it’ approach, far from it! They work closely with their female athletes to design a pack that meets their exacting requirements.
With 10.1 Litres of capacity the Ultra Vesta is more than capable of carrying all your compulsory ultra-race kit and then some. The large compartment at the back is accessed via a large zip closure that opens up so you can get to kit lower down the pack. Over this large secure storage is a cavernous stretch mesh pocket that you can stuff full to your hearts content with additional gear and on the outside is a bungee cord that can be used to secure the load if the pack isn’t full or for lashing layers you may take off as you run.
Up front there are two bottle holder pockets that pull closed to secure the soft flasks (two Body Bottle 500’s provided) or to create additional pockets when not using them for the flasks. Additional pockets on the front are perfect for small essentials such as nutrition that you want to access quickly and easily. Poles can also be secured out of the way as and when needed.
Fit is perfect and you can tailor it to your shape thanks to the combination of the 4-way stretch materials and the brilliant new Cinch Technology that allows the pack to be pulled in on the go for a secure, no bounce fit all the time.
If you are looking for a very useable trail running pack that provides pretty much everything you will need for long days out then look no further than the Ultimate Direction Ultra Vesta 4.0.
