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!

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.
