The Catalyst remains the tried and true workhorse of the ULA Pack line. Ready to carry loads of up to 40 pounds, haul a bear canister, or easily carry your fishing, climbing or photo gear.

Sewn with our new ULA 210 Robic fabric, the toughest stuff ounce for ounce that we've ever seen, this pack should give you years of hiking bliss, even if you are a bit tough on your gear.

This is a great pack for people who need to carry a good sized load, or want a bag that can be checked as baggage on a plane. Weighing only 48 oz, including all the extras, this pack will lighten you up, but still handle the toughest duties. (Camo Cordura will add about 2 oz to the total weight) The Catalyst is now available in 6 colors, standard green, black,and purple blaze in the ULA 210 Robic, and Woodland Camo, Marpat camo. and Multicam in 500 Cordura.

Bottom Line? An updated, tougher and lighter pack for traditional backpackers

Love this pack for MOST trails May 11, 2015
Reviewer: Lisa "Pinky" Curry from Alaska, United States  
When loaded to max. capacity it carries comfortably. Often on my recent thru hike I had to load up to 65lbs. The pack managed, but my shoulders were feeling the weight. I would not suggest on a regular basis. The space that the pack provides was more than ample.

I am rough on my gear and for the most part this pack withstood my abuse. The Hayduke Trail however was very tough on this pack. Often I had to sit and slide on rough boulders while dragging the pack across the rocks. This wore many small holes through the bottom, all of which I was able to patch in the field. I have emailed ULA in hopes that they can repair for me and I hope to hear from them soon.

As long as I can repair I will continue to carry this pack happily on many more adventures. However, if my adventure will require many loads over 40lbs I will have to look for another pack for those trips. I hope to be able to keep my loads light and keep carrying my ULA Catalyst as I love this pack!
