The Race Vest has been optimized for speed, speed, and more speed. With less front pockets than a typical vest, the Race Vest enjoys freedom of movement and breathability without sacrificing easily accessible hydration and calories. Breathable mesh shoulder straps and back panels help you vent while still retaining durability and rip-stop qualities. Speaking of rip-stop, anything that’s not breathable mesh on this pack is rip-stop nylon, so you can rest assured knowing that your gear is safely secured and won’t fall out after snagging a tree. Adjustable rib-straps help fine-tune the fit of the Race Vest to eliminate bouncing and increase security on a demanding line or transition. If you are looking for a light ‘n fast pack that is equally at home inside or outside of the tape, the Ultimate Direction Race Vest is the golden ticket.
