Ultimate Direction started the concept of hydration packs when they created the first waist pack for carrying bottles. A few years later they made the first pack/strap to carry a water bottle in your hand, and have made many other innovations that define what a hydration pack is today.
They continue to be one of the market leaders, with their popularized "vest" concept for carrying water. They also introduced the first women's-specific line of hydration packs, now known as the Jenny Collection that are designed by women for women.
Women are attempting gnarly speed records and interesting routes in droves and there’s one vest that comes along on more than any other FKT bid: the Signature Series Adventure Vesta.
