Ultimate Direction

Ultimate Direction Logo
In 1985, Ultimate Direction invented the entire category of hydration packs. Ultimate Direction built the first waist pack designed to carry bottles, a few years later created the first bottle strap to carry a water bottle in your hand, and made numerous other innovations that helped define what a hydration pack is today.

More than 25 years later, Ultimate Direction is at the forefront again with its Signature Series, having been created by three of the world’s best ultra-runners. This innovation popularized the "vest" concept for carrying water, featuring no-bounce comfort and the ability to easily access bottles in the front. Now, Ultimate Direction is introducing the very first women's-specific line of hydration packs, designed by the Women’s Collective when Ultimate Direction asked them specifically what they wanted for themselves. Finally, Ultimate Direction has updated the whole product line with new technical fabrics, streamlined design, and contemporary colors.

Ultimate Direction’s products are designed by athletes for athletes. Some of the best runners in the world thought long and hard about what works the best, and the result is the amazing features you see today. The Ultimate Direction mission is to provide the ultimate in high performance hydration for everyday athletes. Ultimate Direction reengineers, reinvents, and redefines high performance hydration for everyday athletes.

I'm 5.9, 140 lbs. The medium fits perfectly--tight but just enough so that they don't bounce around or chafe. The built in shorts were noticeable at first, I think because I usually run in shorts with a liner brief. But after a mile or so, I did not notice them anymore. I suspect that for people with muscular thighs, they might ride up a bit. I have not tried running in them yet with the water bottles installed. Overall so far though, I'm happy with this purchase (especially since I got them at a Zappos sale price!)

Can’t stop water bottles from slipping into the pocket once they empty some and they are hard to pull back out, because I’ve cinched the elastic tight to try to keep them from slipping. Definitely can’t drink on the run when that happens and then have to stop to pull out bottles. Got a bottle with straw to see if that would help, which it does when bottle empties, but when that bottle is full the straw rubs on my chin. Unfortunately the pack is worthless to me, because it makes getting water so hard while running. Back to my Nathan pack with a bladder. The fit is great and light, but the bottle situation I can’t figure out so I just can’t use it.
