The all new Ultimate Direction AK Mountain Vest 3.0 stems from the wealth and experiences of Anton Krupicka.  Anton is a mountain runner from Boulder Colorado.  He is the two-time Leadville 100 miler Champion (2006, 2007) and was second in the prestigious Western States 100 miler race.  Whilst sponsored by Ultimate Direction, he is also supported by La Sportiva, Buff Headwear and Petzl... to name a few.  
   
Anton is not just renowned for racing, he is highly regarded for his exploits pursuing remote summits and long traverses requiring high level fitness, technical mountain skills and carrying the right equipment for alpine environments.  What does this tell us about Anton?  He is the perfect guru for designing a gnarly vest pack for us!
   
The Ultimate Direction AK Mountain Vest 3.0 is a beauty!  It is far lighter than the older 2.0 Race Vest model but still comes with more carrying capacity. We love the copious 11.5L volume, harness that conforms better to the body, and the on-the-go running pole holders.  We are sure that with a little more facial hair growth and our Ultimate Direction AK Mountain Vest 3.0, we too can be running like Anton the mountain goat!
