Ultimate Direction Jurek Collection : JUREK FKT VEST

Scott Jurek broke the Appalachian Trail fastest know time (FKT) record. With 46 days experience on the trail and with 7 consecutive WS100 wins, Scott designed this FKT running vest to be simple, comfortable, and yet very high performance. Storage capacity of the Jurek FKT Vest is 11.6 litres compared to 8.5 litres for the SJ Ultra Vest 3.0. Note 2x FlexForm 600 bottles are included as standard with the Jurek FKT Vest.

Featuring the new FlexForm 600 bottle - ergonomically shaped to fit in your hand and against your body, this pliable plastic bottle has a wide opening for easy refilling of water and energy powder and a soft push/pull bite valve made of silicon. Multiple pouches, zipped pockets and side lat 'dump' pockets provide lots of front / side storage for on-the-go access to water, phone, maps, glasses, food and clothing.

vest worn for scafell skyrace 2018 July 18, 2018
Reviewer: Robert campbell from United kingdom  
Wore vest for 40km run over extremely technical terrain with 2 litres water, plus mandatory kit.  With both chest straps done up tight, the vest rode up at the front,  whilst sinking down at the back,  such that the uppermost chest strap choked me within a couple of mins.  This continued for 10 hours,  despite attempting every adjustment possible.  The supplied bottles have a rubber bite valve that simply will not work quickly to dispense liquid on demand,  i tried for ten hours and conclude that  it is impossible to be happy  with the design of this valve.  I have 4 other running vests and run distances up to 100km quite  often.  The UD vest is the worst running product i have ever used.  Suggest you at least try before you buy.

Ultimate Direction JUREK FKT VEST June 25, 2018
Reviewer: Melissa Griffiths from Orinda, CA United States  
I was looking forward to this pack as I admire Scott Jurek but would say I'm satisfied, not delighted. It doesn't bounce when I run and has lots of pockets, although they don't actually hold all that much. The shoulder straps don't adjust at all so when the pack is fully loaded, it fits me very differently and can't be adjusted to fit the heavier weight. I like the shape of the bottles that it comes with but they rub my arms if I use both of them at the same time. They are also hard to drink from as my mouth gets blasted with air - I haven't figured out why! I plan to use this pack for an upcoming 100 miler - it will just about fit a waterproof shell with water and food for 4-5 hours, but probably not much more. I've tried lots of packs over the years of ultras and adventure racing and I would rate this as an 'upper middle of the range' pack. All that being said, maybe the perfect pack doesn't exist. Service received from Ultra Marathon Store was great and I would buy from them again!

Good choice May 28, 2018
Reviewer: S. Pahos from Horsham, W Sussex United Kingdom  
I allowed for almost 6 months until I tested the vest in the Olympian Race (180km) in Greece.

The vest performed very well and I had it on for almost 28 hours. Light, firm with plenty of storage for someone who does solo runs.

The only drawback is the two bottles that come with the vest. I will have to substitute them at first chance. Their valves simply refuse to work and they leak once you puncture them. Luckily two bottles come at a cost of no more than £12.

Overall, I will recommend the vest. Good quality, fit, no chafing problems, with plenty of storage.

UD Jurek FKT Vest February 16, 2018
Reviewer: Sean from Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire United Kingdom  
Never had an ultra vest before so was little unsure of what to buy.  So far (one 25km run) I am very pleased with the Jurek FKT, very comfortable with plenty of storage for food, water-proofs, etc.  The side pockets are particularly useful, easy to reach and can stretch to hold quite a bit.  I noticed a couple of comments about phones being to big for the chest pocket, I used a side pocket for the phone and had no issues reaching it.

The only thing I am not too sure about yet is the bottles, I did feel the top of them pressing into my chest a bit, might be better with some vest adjustment, I might end up changing them for soft bottles but will decide after a few longer runs.

Service from Keith is great and the vest arrived timely and well packed.

Review Update. After spending a bit more time adjusting the vest so the bottles sit a little further out and the problem has gone so changed review to 5 stars.
