Ultimate Direction Signature Series : PB ADVENTURE Vest Version 2.0

Be the First to Know when new UD products become available.

Purchase an Ultimate Direction AK, SJ or PB vest & we'll include a FREE Ultimate Direction BODY BOTTLE Soft Flask (420ml) with your package!!

Designed by ultra-adventurer Peter Bakwin, the PB Adventure Vest 2.0 will help you go further, higher and harder. Version 2.0 includes all the same great features as the original plus many improvements. Side adjustment straps, hidden in side pockets, allow for a fine tuned fit and elimanates bounce. An added side access zipper and gear storage separator makes accessing and securing a reservoir easy. 340gm Power Mesh is strong and durable, and Silnylon 66 provides increased seam strength. The PB Vest 2.0 is stronger and more durable, enabling you to go anywhere with confidence.

Featuring 12 L of volume and a variety of features, The UD Peter Bakwin Adventure Vest allows you to stay hydrated and comfortable on any size adventure from quick outings to all-day expeditions.
The pack Peter Bakwin always wanted did not exist – so he designed this one. The 12 ounce PB Adventure Vest has the same abundant storage options as the SJ Ultra Vest, but with a large 8.5 litre main compartment, constructed with a unique one-piece pull cord for instant expandability or compression. With a special pocket for a locater beacon, and a system for readily attaching trekking poles or an ice axe, this is the most comfortable pack ever for hiking, running and climbing.

"The Adventure Vest is the pack I’ve always wanted but wasn’t available… until now!

Silnylon 66: Impregnating nylon with Silicon and Polyurethane creates this permanently waterproof fabric, and also substantially increases its seam and tear strength.
Hex Mesh: The Hex Mesh vest structure is completely breathable, extremely strong, and lightweight. Its inability to absorb moisture results in a drier, more comfortable wear.
Power Mesh: All pockets are strong and stretchy, made with heavy duty 340gm Power Mesh stretch fabric so the vest expands as you need it to.

Ultimate Direction PB ADVENTURE Vest 2.0 January 22, 2015
Reviewer: Karl Doy from Northampton, northamptonshire United Kingdom  
Everything I was hoping it would be and more. This sticks to you like a limpet with pockets. More than enough capacity for a full day out in the hills, and cinches down nicely when not full. I was worried about bounce from the upfront bottles, but they hold solid. Adjustment is quick and simple so no laborious fiddling when adding or loosing layers.
Very minor point on the bottles that come with the vest- the plastic is quite hard compared to some others, so they are not so squeezable, especially with cold hands. Or I'm just a weakling!
A really well though out and constructed vest. Highly recommended.

Fantastic piece of kit January 21, 2015
Reviewer: Paul McNair from Cumbernauld, North Lanarkshire United Kingdom  
Very impressed with vest. It fitted almost perfectly from the start. It has loads of excellent and well thought out features. You can tell that this is a premium product as the quality of its manufacture is evident throughout. Having tried a couple of different vests now I can safely say that sometimes it is better to spend a little bit more for a quality piece of kit to get exactly what you want instead of making compromises for price.

Also couldn't fault the service received by the Ultramarathon store. Order was dispatched the same day as I placed it. Fantastic product sold by a fantastic retailer.

Excellent piece of kit and outstanding service January 12, 2015
Reviewer: Richard O'Grady from Tullibody, Clackmannanshire, Scotland  
I've been searching for a suitable running vest for a few years now and thought my quest was at an end as none seemed to suit my 6' 4" frame and appropriately sited pockets and drink bottles. I have quite a collection, most of which sit in the bottom of my wardrobe collecting dust. So when I ordered this UD Adventure Vest there was a little bit of trepidation that this too might end up in the same wardrobe. But not to be! This is an excellent product, very well thought out and designed. It fits me perfectly and my running needs. Although it says it's waterproof, it might be showerproof but not an issue as I've added a rucksack liner to the main compartment on several hill runs and in some absolutely dire weather including a snow blizzard. It performed very well and I would recommend this vest to any marathon/ultra runner as a great bit of kit. By the way, I would also like to thank UltraMarathon Store for an excellent delivery service.

Ultimate Direction Running Vext PB November 10, 2014
Reviewer: Carl Wickham-Downes from Nr Rochester , Kent United Kingdom  
I recently purchased an Ultimate Direction backpack. One of the water bottles has a faulty thread and as a result it continually leaks which is not what I would reasonably expect. Unfortunately this happened yesterday morning as I was preparing my kit for a multi day ultra challenge. To this end I need to have the bottle replaced.

Reviewer: Digby Ellis-Brecknell from St Brelade, Channel Islands  
Fantastic service as always. Sadly due to injury have not been able to run with my new pack...just admire it. Looking forward to some long miles with this amazing piece of kit.
Will write a review.
