Purchase an Ultimate Direction AK, SJ or PB vest & we'll include an extra Ultimate Direction 20oz. (600ml) kicker valve bottle with your package!

Designed by the champion of minimalism and a 2014 Trail Runner Magazine Gear of the Year Award winner, the AK Race Vest gives you everything you need and nothing more. Innovative fabrics and design come together to provide the ultimate in lightweight comfort. Weighing only 7 ounces, the AK Race Vest 2.0 won't hold you back and gives you liters of storage.
AK Vest 2.0 increases durability by switching to Silnylon from Cuben Fiber, using a stronger 340gm Power Mesh, adding edge banding to the upper strap pockets, and making the bungee cord stronger. The lower main compartment pockets are gone adn the back panel is cut higher for better gear storage and retention.
This is the pack that's used all over the world, for an easy hour run to a hundred miler.

Anton Krupicka

Super light minimalist race vest September 22, 2014
Reviewer: AEGIR SAEVARSSON from RODOVRE, Copenhagen Denmark  
AK UD race vest is a super light complete versatile minimalist reach vest that has surprisingly large storage capacity. I like it for its lightness and minimalism - it fits everything I need.

all the dynamic racer needs August 1, 2014
Reviewer: Arne from 9160, Lokeren Belgium  
i tried the AK RACE Vest 2.0 during a 40 km test run and, after adjusting the size a few times in the first 30 minutes, it felt very comfortable and it didn't slow me down at all. At the end i had 2 small shafing wounds in the neck, but i think i can avoid this by opening the closing at the top a bit more and put 2 preventive plasters at the right spot. I opted for the bottles instead of the reservoir. They shaked a little when full (explaining the chafing), but they give immediate access to your drinks and can be refilled easily and fast at supply posts. Great thoughtfull design, basic but efficient, this is a vest that even champions will like to wear
