The Mountain Vest offers plenty of practical storage options for serious ultra distance events. With useful features all over the key aspect of this pack remains it's adjustability and comfort. 

Ultimate Direction says

Versatile pocketing and quickly adjustable sternum straps for layering. A clamshell zipper opening on the rear compartment and external elastic compression to hold all the necessary gear for any kind of adventure.

Our Verdict

Ultimate Direction's Mountain Vest 5.0 is a versatile pack with a decent capacity and loads of options for how and where your store kit. The cinch adjuster is ideal for quickly and easily tightening or loosening the vest with a simple pull of cords or push of a button. Adjustments on the fly allow you to stay focused on running while maintaining the comfort as the pack changes weight and shape as you use kit. The highly breathable mesh back increases comfort and allows sweat to move away from the body while the new stretch mesh material is softer, stretchier and lighter. Add into the mix the emergency whistle attached to every pack, two 500ml soft flasks that are included, the numerous range of drop, Velcro closure and zip pockets not to mention compression options make this is a seriously impressive package.

This pack is probably the best all-rounder in the range. It will suit runners competing in big ultra distance events through to shorter winter races where extra layers are vital. When you need to pack plenty of gear or mandatory kit lists are extended past the usual ultra distance requirements this pack is great for that. Hydration and storage options become more important for events like these and this pack has been great for year round use, particularly when cold changeable weather has been an issue.
