Ultimate Direction Running Equipment

In 1985 Ultimate Direction invented the entire category of hydration packs. They began with waist packs for carrying bottles, following that up with the first pack/strap to carry a water bottle in your hand, then creating the "vest" concept for carrying water. Next up was the first women's-specific line of hydration packs . Beyond hydration Ultimate Direction now create technical and award-winning gear for road-running, trail-running, ultra-running, sky running, adventure races and mountain marathons such as the Fastpack and mens and womens Ultra Jacket.

Ultimate Direction products are designed by athletes for athletes with such luminaries as Scott Jurek, Anton Krupicka, Pete Bakwin, Tim Olson and Jenny Jurek putting their thoughts and designs into the product ranges. We agree with these guys that their hard work and experience has resulted in absolutely great gear.
