Show Description

Get the stable fit of a vest combined with the carrying capacity of a pack. Incorporating the changes that ultra-runner Scott Jurek made to his personal vest, the SJ Ultra has plenty of pockets to bring all you need for all-day runs in any weather. Your bottles and gel packs ride up front for access on the move.

  • Made of strong, lightweight silnylon and soft knit mono mesh.
  • Super-soft binding on seams prevents chafing.
  • Rides high, so it won’t interfere with your stride.
  • Stretch mesh shoulder pouches fit gels and smartphone.
  • Bottle holsters on front have drawstring closures.
  • Mesh pouches on bottle holsters hold full or empty gel packs, and pouches below holsters carry electrolytes or valuables.
  • 2 trekking pole loops.
  • Back pocket has 2 compartments. Inner one can hold a 2L hydration reservoir (not included).
  • Includes 2, 0.5L soft TPU bottles that pack down to almost nothing when empty.
