  • A full featured, full suspension internal framed pack, the Catalyst remains the tried and true workhorse of the ULA pack line.

    No matter where the adventure takes you, the Catalyst will be there – ready to carry loads of up to 40 pounds. If you are looking for a pack that will haul a bear canister, or carry your fishing, climbing or photo gear with ease, the Catalyst is an excellent choice. Not only will it carry a good sized load, but it can also be checked as baggage on a plane! The Catalyst has consistently been among the top 5 most popular packs on the Pacific Crest Trail and the Appalachian Trail.

    Internal frame with a twin stay framesheet, comfy padded hipbelt, and contoured shoulder straps make for all day comfort even when you’re loaded down. Front mesh pocket, dual hipbelt pockets, and Robic adjustable side pockets make it easy to stay organized whether you’re on a thru, or just out for the weekend. Weighing only 48 oz – including all the extras! – this pack will lighten you up but still handle the toughest duties.

    The Catalyst is sewn with our 400 ULA Robic Fabric, the toughest stuff ounce for ounce we’ve ever seen.  This is one tough pack that will give you years of hiking bliss, even if you are a bit tough on your gear.

    Bottom Line? The Catalyst is a tough and light pack built for traditional backpackers.

  • Lets’ face it, every mother has a favorite child – ours is the Circuit. Weighing in at less than 41 oz, we don’t think there’s a pack out there that can compare to the load carrying capabilities, comfort, and durability of the Circuit pack. If you have your total pack weight down around 30 pounds and want to feel the freedom of traveling light, this is the pack for you. The Circuit has been the most popular pack on the Pacific Crest Trail for the past 3 years according to the Halfway Anywhere annual survey of PCT thru hikers.

    The Circuit pack utilizes a 1.2 oz carbon fiber and Delrin suspension hoop in conjunction with a dense internal foam frame and a single aluminum stay to give you excellent back panel support, maximum load control, weight transfer, and pack rigidity without limiting your range of movement.

    The Circuit is sewn with our 400 ULA Robic Fabric, the toughest stuff ounce for ounce we’ve ever seen.  This is one tough pack that will give you years of hiking bliss, even if you are a bit tough on your gear.  This pack will take the abuse of a 2,600 mile hike and beg for more.
