Description Specifications FAQ and Videos

The CDT is our lightest, most basic backpack. With nearly 50 liters of available space it is suitable for thru-hikes, dayhikes, and any distance backcountry forays. This is the only frameless pack we make and it is ideal for travel or lightweight hiking. Maximum comfortable load in this pack is under 18#, no matter what anyone claims no frameless pack is comfortable over this weight and we are no exception. The current CDT continues the tradition of being a reliable, lightweight, and durable backcountry companion.

Contoured shoulder straps and a re-designed hipbelt result in a comfortable carry, while (5) external pockets aid in easily accessed on-trail organization. The CDT is now available in four colors, standard green and purple blaze in the ULA 210 Robic, and Multicam in 500 Cordura.

Bottom Line? A comfortable, durable, highly functional ruck. For CDT belt size use your actual waist measurement

Another top notch piece of gear by ULA! February 5, 2017
Reviewer: Mark Weidinger from Prather, CA United States  
This is my second ULA pack (Catalyst is other) and I just received it 2 days ago. I got the CDT to replace my old Lowe Alpine Contour 40, mainly for use as a larger, day backcountry ski pack with extra room for bivy stuff and/or Ham radio gear. Another great pack from ULA, I love it, it carried great with about 16lbs today on a short ski trip and feels like I could easily load it up more if need be. More than enough room. So far the back pad that comes with it works fine, just pack your stuff with care. Plenty of front and side pocket space. I had them add the roll top and a bungee. Thanks again ULA!

Great pack January 21, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Michigan  
Just received the pack in time for her maiden voyage in the woods of Michigan with my winter gear. Pack this thing right and it will wrap you in its loving embrace and float along the trail with you like it's not even there. The craftsmanship on this beaut is top notch and seems amazingly durable for its weight. I swapped out the 1/4 inch back pad for a 1/2 inch piece of blue foam pad which gave it even more structure. Buy this glorious pack. Now.
