When you’ve spent months training, a week tapering and you find yourself on a startline at sunrise with an ultra distant ahead of you, the Signature Series Race Vest should be on your back. A breakthrough fit feature comes in the form of the new Comfort Cinch, which adjusts laterally over the small of your back instead of the sides. Every pocket is designed to be accessible while in motion with storage for race essentials. Go fast and be bold in the Race Vest.

Centurion Review: This is the update to the Signature Series Version 3 / Tim Olson TO Vest. With some smart packing, the 5 litres of space this vest has covers you for your mandatory gear for non-winter ultra races. Also suitable for shorter runs with less or minimal kit due to the weight and ability to compress gear. 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.
