    Designed by the legend himself.

    You don't have to be training for Western States or Hardrock to need a hydration vest like Ultimate Direction's Jurek FKT Hydration Vest; anyone logging miles on hot, exposed trails could use one. Boulder-based Ultimate Direction has been making packs for runners since the mid-80's, and the brand regularly asks for the opinions from the big names in running to make sure their packs are up to snuff. The Jurek FKT was no exception. Designed by, and sharing a name with, one of the most prolific ultramarathoners ever, this hydration vest comes with an impressive pedigree.

    Descended directly from Ultimate Direction's SJ Ultra Vest 2.0, the Jurek delivers a host of practical features runners will recognize and appreciate out on the trails. The vest includes lightweight FlexForm water bottles, as well as space for a hydration reservoir and the option to route the hydration hose any way you'd like. Bungee cords atop the main compartment streamline its contents when you're carrying a phone, map, water, and food, and dedicated holders for trekking poles are easily accessible up front. Ultimate Direction and Jurek construct the whole thing out of durable synthetic fabrics prepared to handle scuffs, scraps, and a whole lot of sweat.

    • Train hydrated in this pro-designed running vest
    • Main compartment provides space for water reservoir
    • Vest includes two water bottles and holders
    • Bungee cords streamline the contents of main compartment
    • Trekking pole holders are easy to access

    The Small is WAY too small!

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    This seems like a very well-designed vest. Lots of pockets and lightweight.
    Unfortunately the small size is incredibly small. I'm a tall and skinny dude (6' 3" and 155 pounds). On me it's still too small. It's like a child-size vest.
