Editor’s choice. Sold with two 20oz front bottles
The SJ Ultra 2.0, designed with input from Scott Jurek, is a vest for those who put in miles worthy of the emeritus ultrarunning champ. Between a large waterproof compartment in the back, two 20-ounce water-bottle pockets in front, zip pockets on the sides and four smaller pouches on the straps, the vest packs a whopping seven liters of kit. Nonetheless, the SJ Ultra feels agile on the run, with well-distributed weight, a secure, fitted design that doesn’t bounce and light, gossamer-y mesh, for those races when you want to sacrifice neither storage nor speed.
