Years of innovation have made the Ultra Vesta a modern classic. Women-designed and women-approved, the Ultra Vesta has been a mainstay at the start lines–and, more importantly, the finish lines–of thousands of ultramarathons since its debut. The new Ultra Vesta 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. As with all Ultimate Direction racing vests, two 500ml Body Bottles stow up front to give you the fuel needed for the long haul.
Centurion Review: This is an update to the incredibly popular Version 3 Ultra Vesta. Now with a capacity of 10 litres (up from the old 7), this vest will cover you for all 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.
