Ultimate Direction Signature Series 4.0

New running packs in Ultimate Direction's Signature Series 4.0 have landed at Bogong!

The latest version of the Signature Series has some great improvements; notably the brand new Comfort Cinch system that allows you to fit the vest like your favourite T-shirt, and adjust the fit on the fly. New, lighter materials stretch where you want them to and stay firm where you don't, and are a lot more breathable.

Main improvements on previous design:

  • Improved fit (new Comfort Cinch technology)
  • Improved materials (20% lighter)

Mountain runners, you can now buy Ultimate Direction packs online in our webstore, or pop in-store to check them out in the flesh.

  • Still has two litres of water-carrying capacity

  • Extra clips on the pack allow for further compression using the cord (for a zero bounce scenario)

Quick Specs

  • Volume: 10.32L
  • Bottles: 2 x Body Bottle 500

Ultimate Direction Mountain Vest 4.0

With the range's fully updated fit system (dubbed the 'Comfort Cinch'), athlete Anton Krupicka says this new tecnhology affects both the adjustability and the fit of the pack a great deal – a big improvement from previous version.

Thanks to new materials, this pack is also a larger capacity than its previous version, yet lighter. If you don't want the extra capacity, you can easily secure smaller loads using the new clips on the pack that allow you to really utilise that bungee cord.

  • A lot of the mesh on the pack is a much thinner, more expandable mesh that's also lighter
  • Sliding rail sternum strap for adjustability on the fly
  • Upgraded pole holders – made of stretch elastic webbing, more durable, provides a firmer hold
  • One of AK's favourite upgrades is the positioning of the lat pockets: such that he can reach them on the go
  • Full clamshell zip, easily accessible interior
  • Extra clips on the pack allow for further compression using the bungee cord

Quick Specs

  • Weight: 325g
  • Volume: 13.27L

Women's Running Vest Packs

Ultimate Direction Ultra Vesta 4.0

Years of innovation have made the Ultimate Direction Ultra Vesta a modern classic. Designed by women, the Ultra Vesta has been a mainstay.

The new Ultimate Direction Ultra Vesta 4.0 is a Signature Series vest with seamless, chafe-free 4-way stretch mesh material and new Comfort Cinch technology that enables lateral sizing and stability adjustments on-the-go.

Like the previous version of Ultimate Direction's women's Ultra Vesta 4.0, the bottle compartments in this running vest are up front. The back section is reservoir compatible.

  • Upgraded bottle pocket – material is stretch-woven mesh that's got dissolved thread, so it's stretchy but also provides a firm hold for the bottles
  • What's unique about these pockets is they have a closure, so you can compress the pockets smaller for if you're putting a phone in it, or other essentials
  • Tight pole system means poles don't get in your way
  • Extra clips on the pack allow for further compression using the bungee cord
