LOOKING FOR THE VERSION 2.0 AK RACE VEST?
AK RACE Vest Version 2.0

Designed by Anton Krupicka, the UD AK Race Vest brings minimalism to the world of hydration. Even though it weighs in at only 6 ounces (11.5 with bottles), the Anton Krupicka Race Vest still has plenty of capacity for food, clothing, and a phone, so you can use this vest for anything from 10 to 100 miles.
Minimalism comes to the world of hydration with the AK Race Vest, designed by the apostle of the "less is more" philosophy, Anton Krupicka. Weighing in at a feathery 6 ounces, the AK Race Vest is the world’s lightest hydration pack. With all the features you need and none you don’t, the Anton Krupicka Race Vest offers twin bottle pockets, a main compartment for gear or a reservoir, and several smaller pockets easily accessed on the go. The Power Net Mesh holds small items securely while expanding out to a full 4 litre capacity.

...perfect summer carrier June 9, 2014
Reviewer: daniel hughes from ilkley, west yorkshire United Kingdom  
... I dislike carrying anything restrictive around my waist so rucksacks and vests are great - the AK vest is perfect for summer with room for two bottles, some gels/ bars and a waterproof jacket... thoroughly recommended...

Ultimate mate. February 3, 2014
Reviewer: Fredrik Silow from Lund, SkÃ¥ne Sweden  
The AK Race Vest from UD is by far the smartest composition of garment I’ve seen. No compromises. (I’ve also bought two sizes of the SJ Ultra Vest, one medium for summer, and one large for longer winter days adventures with lots of clothes. The SJ Vest is not able to expand in diameter to fit a larger chest with winter clothing as the AK Vest is with the side strips. But of course, they are in deed for different purposes.) But I find it interesting how much the AK Vest forces one to minimize the packing to the limit. The AK Vest wipes most competition off the track I think, and actually uses my old UltraAspire bladder with ease together with both chest bottles and lots of snacks for longer runs with eternities between water stations. One of the most important aspects with all of the UD Vests are the ability to fit perfectly even how much of junk you stuff them with. Ultimate by all means. Enough said.

Light hydration January 9, 2014
Reviewer: victor edholm from molndal, Non US or Canadian State/Provi Sweden  
Have had a couple of runs with the vest so far and really like it. Will probably replace bottles with soft bottles. Pockets to small for Iphone. Would be nice with an easy to reach, waterproof compartement for smartphone.
Order handling great.
Shipping fast. What's not to like?
