Description Specifications FAQ and Videos

Lets' face it, every mother has a favorite child, and the Circuit is ours. We don't think there is any pack out there that can compare to the load carrying capabilities, comfort and durability of the Circuit, while still weighing less than 41 ounces.(Cordura Camo will increase the weight about 2 ozs) 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.

Sewn with our nearly indestructible ULA 210 Robic fabric, solid robic side pockets and a huge mesh front pocket, this pack will take the abuse of a 2500-mile hike and beg you for more.

The Circuit 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 excellent back panel support and maximum load control, weight transfer, and pack rigidity without limiting your range of movement. The Circuit can also be ordered with a 12"18"adjustable harness system that works great for kids. In fact, the youngest person ever to backpack all 2663 miles of the Pacific Crest trail was carrying a Kids Circuit. More info can be found in the video below>

Almost perfect May 18, 2017
Reviewer: Mark Jose from Springfield, IL United States  
The fit is great and it carries a ton of stuff. Only a couple of critiques. Would like a larger waist buckle, a way to strap stuff to the bottom, and I don't love the way the load lifters attatch to just fabric and nothing structurally.

durable, lightweight May 10, 2017
Reviewer: Dan from IL United States  
I used this pack for 6 months in New Zealand, including a thru-hike of the Te Araroa.

-Front pocket held a ridiculous # of items. Mesh durable w/ no tears.
-Very spacious hip-belt pockets
-The bottom cordura panel held up great.  No holes.
-Used water bottle holsters religiously
-roll-top closure - quick, easy, adjustable
-The padding on the hip belt, shoulder straps, and back is comfortable. Acts like sponge for sweat.
-I had trouble resting pack weight on my hips. I think my narrow frame was the problem.  **I realize there are a number of reasons why weight would not sit comfortably.**  
-The pack is still in great shape. No holes, tears, or blown stitching.  
-Pack carried all gear and 9 days of food "comfortably"
-No breathability btwn back and pack
-Loaded pack is very stiff.  Think padded cinder block.

I wish it had better suspension, air circulation, and access points. But, extras come at a cost. This pack is durable, light, performs well, and goes the distance.

Love the Circuit April 19, 2017
Reviewer: John Noss from Round Hill, VA United States  
Chris at ULA was extremely helpful with advice on choosing straps and size, I opted for the S-straps and love them, with hip belt cinched tight it saved my previously broken and badly healed shoulders.  Barely felt the pack on my spine, easily carried 30 lbs with full water and 7 days of food on tough terrain.  Love the water bottle keeper on one shoulder strap, and love the optional shoulder strap pocket on the other side for cell phone and note pad. Saw many thru-hikers on the AT with Circuits, more than any other single model from any maker.

response to bottles falling out April 19, 2017
Reviewer: Chris McMaster from Logan, Ut United States  
responding to Johns below comment about the bottles falling out, the side pockets have a bungee cord with a barrel lock running through the top of each pocket, simply cinch the cord tight and the bottles should never be able to fall out

ULA Circuit - Very Good, Just Don't Bend Over March 21, 2017
Reviewer: John B. from Madison, AL United States  
I like the fit and the adjustability and of course the weight.  I especially like the large hip belt pockets for carrying easy access to my camera/phone snacks without the need to open the body of the pack.  

The one issue I repeatedly have is dropping my water bottles.  I carry two 1 liter Smart Water bottles and have had several occasions where I have bent over and the water bottles slide out of the pockets or fall out when scrambling up a difficult climb with the bottle ending up at the bottom of the hill I just climbed.  I now carry extra caps because inevitably I drop a bottle and crack the top.  So, if anyone has suggestions, other than behavioral changes to stop bending over, for avoiding this, and where I can still get a bottle in and out of the pocket without removing the pack, I would be happy to hear them.  If I can fix this then it will definitely get five stars from me.

Bottom line, I would definitively buy the Circuit again, and I will try my best to remain upright.
