UltrAspire Bottle Hydration Vest: BASHAM RACE VEST
Engineered from the specifications of professional ultrarunner Amanda Basham, the Basham Race Vest from UltrAspire answer's Amanda's very specific requirements for the vest to be able to tackle some of the most prestigious hot weather races. The Basham Vest’s defining characteristic is its incredibly small footprint which reduces weight and increases heat dissipation. Despite its size, it can carry up to 2 bottles as well as a jacket, headlamp, nutrition, mandatory items, large smart phone and other accessories. Including an UltraFlask 550 Hybrid Bottle that fits horizontally in the rear foam insulated passage pocket, accessible from both sides with either hand. Another bottle can be stored in the upper quick stash pocket on the rear (accessible by either hand over the top of the shoulder) - built from 4-way stretch mesh for maximum capacity and featuring a magnetic closure to keep contents secure yet accessible. There is an additional expandable quick stash pocket on top of the insulated passage pocket (bottle compartment), perfect for a jacket or headlamp that need to be accessed whilst on the move. This pack features UltrAspire's ErgoFit harness with UltrAcool Light Mesh - the shoulder straps are narrow, have on the go access pockets, and can carry a large smart phone as well as a tracking device or valuables in the large zippered stretch-mesh pocket. Adjustment straps on the side and on the sternum provide a personalised fit. One size fits most.
