Ultimate Direction says:
Women are attempting gnarly speed records and interesting routes in droves and there’s one vest that comes along on more than any other FKT bid: the Signature Series Adventure Vesta. The beloved “burrito” pocket upfront could store your favorite Chipotle menu item OR a plus sized phone, additional fuel, emergency items, and more. Sliding rail sternum straps and the new Comfort Cinch technology enables lateral sizing and stability adjustments from the small of your back for our best-fitting vests ever. Grab a buddy or go it alone–the Adventure Vesta will be your best friend on your biggest objectives.
Ultimate Direction's Womens Adventure Vesta 4.0 has enough capacity and enough storage options to keep you on the trails for as long as you can take it. This pack is a great choice for multi-day events, 100 milers and winter ultras where you need more kit. The large zip that provides easy access to the main compartment and the two other zip pockets have super stretchy mesh so you can get plenty in. The addition of the soft flask and multiple pocket options on the shoulder and waist belt are great. This vest has worked for me for anything from marathon distances up to 100km in good conditions.
The new Comfort Cinch technology is a massive improvement on the old adjustment system as the ability to quickly and easily tighten or loosen the vest with a simple pull of cords or push of a button is amazing. Adjustments on the fly allow you to stay focused on running while maintaining the comfort as the pack changes weight and shape as you use kit.
The MicroMono mesh back increases comfort and allows sweat to move away from the body while the new stretch mesh material is softer, stretchier and lighter. Add into the mix the emergency whistle attached to every pack, two 500ml soft flasks that are included, the numerous secure zip pockets and compression options not to mention the little extra like the branded hair band for the forgetful kit packers and it's no wonder this is one of the best vests in the world.
