A belt that gives you more options so you can spend more time on the trails. With plenty of storage for 1L of fluids, foods, extra layers or other essentials this belt can save you taking a pack.
Ultimate Direction says: Some like it hot—so stay cool with plenty of hydration on your waist.
THE SIGNATURE SERIES® IS RENOWNED ALL OVER THE WORLD—AND THE BELTS AND HANDHELDS ARE JUST AS GOOD AS THE VESTS AND VESTAS.
All our belts now utilize the Secure Wrap Fit System, which replaces the hook & loop closure. This upgrade results in a better and lighter weight system. The Clutch remains the most ergonomic handheld bottle. These belts and handhelds compliment the extremely popular Signature Series® Vests, providing a complete collection.
Ultimate Direction's Ultra Belt 5.0 is perfect for long days on the trails. With two 500ml soft bottles included there is a decent amount of hydration available for longer runs. However, you can easily leave one of the bottles and add extra kit to the pouch as the drawcord top still keeps things pretty secure.
There is one main compartment that zips closed and it is big enough for a shell jacket and phone plus other accessories. The seasoned ultra runner/racer will probably be able to fit their entire mandatory kit in this belt but for mere mortals this is a good sized belt for longer runs. It is really comfortable to wear, even when fully loaded, with the micro mesh allowing sweat to wick and edges covered with soft material. The adjustablility of the Velcro belt strap is a massive plus and has made this vest my go-to kit for long runs in the hills.
