Product Description

10 oz Bottle included

Designed by Jenny Jurek with help from the Women's Collective, the 2014 Trail Runner Magazine Gear of the Year Award winning Ultra Vesta is ergonomically shaped to fit perfectly and perform flawlessly. The plan was to select the best features from all the Signature Series vests, combine them into one great product, then re-design the shape to specifically fit women.

The result is front strap-mounted holsters that offer quick, immediate access to twin 10 ounce water bottles, which are concave against the body, are positioned higher on the chest, and can be folded flat when not in use. The larger volume pockets located low in the front keep your phone, camera, salt tablets, or gels within easy reach while on the move. The main compartment will accommodate a 70 oz. reservoir (sold seperately) and plenty of gear, and there is an additional horizontal pocket in the rear for quick organization of special items. External and internal bungee cords stabilize the load while the two sternum straps and side adjustment straps give you a customized fit and eliminate bouncing. Moisture-wicking Air Mesh keeps you dry, provides support, and is soft to the touch for all-day comfort. Also included are an ice axe loop, two trekking pole loops, and reflective accents for low-light visibility.

    Thank you for designing a hydration pack that is not only designed for a woman but is so light/easy to run with that you forget that it there until you need to use it. I am training for my first 100k this April and what a delightful change from my typical handheld water bottle. It is one of the first things I could tick off my list of needs and by far one of the most important. I recommend this vest to all my fellow women endurance athletes. Thank you!

    Having a team of women design a vest for women really paid off! I used to hate wearing a vest because I was always fidgeting with it and I felt bulky. I did whatever I could to avoid wearing a vest but since I love to do long mountain runs, I really did need a quality vest. Thankfully I tried out the Ultra Vesta and loved it. It's comfortable and fits all of my running needs from carrying a lot of water to having a place to put my microspikes during winter runs. There's not a better vest out there for women right now.

    This vest is very smartly designed in all the right places. The size is spot on. The bottles are placed well. The front pockets are large and well placed. The rear has 3 pockets, the innermost one has internal bungees and Velcro loop for an optional bladder. This pocket has mesh towards your back but a water resistant barrier towards the middle pocket, so your bladder sweating or your back sweating won't get your stuff wet(at least from that side!). The middle pocket is slightly smaller and is the stretch mesh on the outside(so if it rains, your stuff will get wet). And then the smallest pocket is accessed by a horizontal top zipper and is a water resistant pocket completely(good for a phone or matches or what have you). The outside has bungees for jackets and other compressible gear. The vest wears really well. It has multiple adjustment points that allows for customized, bounce free fit that easily adjusts for what your wearing and how you pack the vest with supplies. The sternum straps can be adjusted up & down via the side rails, very smart indeed! The material along the edges is very soft to help lessen chafing. The air mesh allows for great airflow throughout. I ran with this vest on a 16 miler and it was perfect. I had initially thought I would sub the smaller 10oz bottles with 20s in the summer but they would sit up very high near your face based on the pack's lady friendly design. So I am returning them for a 70oz reservoir instead. This pack is minimal, for sure, much like the AK vest but for women. The bottles being so close to your shoulders, have noticeable sloshing noise but just like your footsteps, eventually fade to background noise OR remind you to take a drink more often:) 2 things I would change: Bigger bottle caps & openings for ice, quicker filling, and faster liquid flow out the spout. I have some competitor bottles that have regular bike type bottle caps but on smaller 8oz bottles...so it can be done. Make one of the larger pockets water resistant. If it is raining, your outta luck on keeping any clothing or gear inside dry larger than a smartphone(since that's the only pocket that is water resistant).
