Ultimate Direction AK Race Vest, Gunmetal

Designed by the champion of minimalism and a 2014 Trail Runner Magazine Gear of the Year Award winner, the AK Race Vest gives you everything you need and nothing more. Innovative fabrics and design come together to provide the ultimate in lightweight comfort. Weighing less than 200g, the AK Race Vest 2.0 won't hold you back and gives you litres of storage.

Version 2.0 increases durability by switching to Silnylon from Cuben Fiber, using a stronger 340gm Power Mesh, adding edge banding to the upper strap pockets, and making the bungee cord stronger. The lower main compartment pockets are gone and the back panel is cut higher for better gear storage and retention.

This is the pack that's used all over the world, for an easy hour run to a hundred kilometres.
