With its laser focus on running and endurance activities, Ultimate Direction has often used the term “wearable gear” for its apparel and that is certainly fitting for the Ultra Jacket. The ultra-lightweight jacket stows compactly in its interior chest pocket so you can throw it in your pack whether you are planning on staying outside for days on end or just sneaking in a quick run. Underscoring its weatherproofness, the jacket’s waterproof/breathability metrics far exceeds the standards required by the esteemed Ultra Tour Du Mont Blanc (UTMB) which has become the pinnacle race for ultra runners all across the globe. Two stand-out features are integrated “FlipMitt” cuffs and a trademarked hood construction that creates a “tunnel-like” effect which promotes airflow without reducing weather protection or inhibiting visibility.
The Ultra Jacket is available in men’s and women’s styles.
Best Use: Hiking and Running/Fitness
