The Race Vesta is tailored to the modern female competitor. Feature-rich and available in two stunning colors, the Race Vesta is our most aggressive vest for women who don’t just run, but run to win. Professional ultrarunner Clare Gallagher says, “The Race Vesta rocks! There’s not one second of uncomfortableness when I race in it.” This new addition in the Signature Series gives women the edge needed in racing and training for target events. 4-way stretch material moves with you instead of against you and the new Comfort Cinch dials in fit with lateral sizing and stability adjustments. From the punishing ups-and-downs of the CCC in the Alps to your local flat-and-fast 50 miler, the Ultimate Direction Race Vesta is as integral on your back as the bib on your front.
Centurion Review: This is a new addition to the UD women's specific pack range, a lighter weight more minimal race vest. But with a capacity of 8 litres, some smart packing will allow you to pack all of your mandatory gear in here for ultra events. The new UD v4 Vests are more comfortable products for two main reasons, the comfort cinch technology and the lighter/ softer material. Where UD fell behind Salomon in our opinion in one major area in the past - comfort/ fit, the latest UD innovations bring them up to that level, with all the classic UD features - Great pocket design, access and crucially how durable they are. The Cinch allows you to pull the vest in or out for a closer fit with less bounce - this is not a gimmick, we've been wearing these over the last 6 weeks and we are really impressed. We also breathed a sigh of relief at the upgrade to the materials as this was the last missing component in our eyes and brings UD up to meet and exceed the best vests on the market.
