Ultimate Direction Highline Hydration Pack.
Keep Hydrated and Continue Moving.
I just love the name! ULTIMATE. DIRECTION. I already feel stronger, more focused and clear.
Ultimate Direction is a company passionate and committed to making and selling high quality hydration gear for everyday runners. Water and staying hydrated is essential for life, training, racing and performing well. This past December I met some of the folks from Ultimate Direction at The Running Event in Austin. I was lucky enough to have been photographed on a long running journey with one of their signature series running vests : )
Ok, so maybe I wasn’t really on a long running adventure; but the vest was really cool! For more info on their signature series check out Ultimate Directions site.
Ultimate Direction did send out another hydration pack for me to test out. I got the Ultimate Direction Highline pack.
Ultimate Direction Highline Hydration Pack:
You won’t get dehydrated with this pack! The Highline hydration pack has a 96 oz available water pack as well as two water bottle pockets. This pack is great for long distant runs or hiking adventures. I have only used it a couple of times so far. My running adventures have been short enough for me to not require a complete fill up. With only filling the pack to half its potential, my runs were perfectly comfortable. I barely noticed any extra weight. Even if I were to fill it up all the way, the design of the Ultimate Direction Highline is efficient and sturdy to say the least. The straps have a snug fit that keeps it secure on my shoulders and back. I hardly noticed the pack during my runs. The waist belt adjusts to your desired size. This also keeps it snug to my body and adds ease to whatever movements I make. There was enough room in the bag for me to add some snacks as well as some arm warmers and gloves. I could have added more to the bag. There are some pockets on the waist strap. Enough room for a cell phone, camera or snack bars.
The Ultimate Direction Highline Hydration Pack is a solid product to have on your long runs or hikes. It serves its purpose and with comfort.
The only part of the bag that I gave notice to that I would make different was the mouth piece. It was a bit stiffer than some other hydration packs I’ve used before. I could still use it and get the water I needed, I simply had to work slightly harder for it. This could be a small inconvenience for someone on a longer run who really needs to get hydrated fast and often. I have not tested it out to that extent yet, but I will update as I come across anything new. Overall, The Ultimate Direction Highline Pack is still a great product. Easy solution for any hassle water reservoir is to replace it with a different one. Ultimate Direction Has several hydration packs to chose from depending on your needs.
* Important Note for any hydration pack! When filling up the water pack, suck out any extra air so to get a better seal in the bag. This will help keep the water from swooshing all around during your run. Saves space too!
