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) and is not quite as tear resistant) 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. Please note that the front mesh pocket is no longer the rigid mesh shown in the video, but is now an incredibly strong, not as see through, super stretchy mesh.

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>

Absolutely Perfect August 14, 2017
Reviewer: Jennifer Rolfe-Maloney from Virginia Beach, VA United States  
After researching new packs for weeks and wanting something lighter than my current set up that will lay me on a Thru Hike without compromising the integrity of the pack or the comfort of my body, I decided to take the majority of people's advice and tryt the Circuit. I was apprehensive at first buying online without trying it on and feeling it out firsthand, especially since the only pack I had ever found to fit properly was my Osprey Aura, everything else has been to large in the shoulders & Getting this today & loading up every ounce of gear I own felt so light and natural and actually fit well inside my Circuit. The fully adjustable straps, and load maximizes a perfect fit, especially for a taller/petite woman that was important. I also had asked for gear straps to be sewn in the bottom to allow me to maximize internal space, and the customer service I received was beyond exceptional. I will highly recommend to anyone that this pack stands a cut above the rest.

Unrivaled durability and comfort June 24, 2017
Reviewer: David from North Georgia  
My ULA Circuit is an amazing piece of gear. It's performed in freezing rain and snow along the spine of the Great Smoky Mountains, hundreds of miles along the Appalachian Trail, deep within Grand Canyon, and has allowed me to comfortably carry 4-6L of H20 when needed. Once while hiking the Appalachian Trail, I stopped to rest and put my pack on top of a large boulder. Little did I know there was a GIANT yellow jacket nest under it! A minute later I was running down the trail trying to escape a swarm bigger than any I had ever seen before. The pack was covered with bees. I grabbed a dead limb about 12ft long and managed to fish the pack off the rock and drag it about 30ft down the trail mesh side down. Not a scratch and the pack still looks new a few hundred miles later. I would not want to experience this with a Dyneema Cuben Fiber pack, and you never know what the trail is going to throw at you. Bombproof!

Ultralight yet bombproof June 23, 2017
Reviewer: Josh Bradshaw from Waterloo, ON Canada  
This year on the PCT (2017) is a very difficult one because of the extreme snow conditions. Leaving Kennedy Meadows I had to carry crampons, an ice axe, a bear can, warm winter layers, and eleven days of food. I was able to fit all of this into my circuit, and carrying it was actually fairly comfortable.

Two days into my Sierra snow trek I set my pack down and to my horror it slid off a cliff. The pack took a fall that would kill a person, and it cracked my bear cannister. The pack itself and all of the other gear inside it was unscathed, it survived the drop without even a single stitch tearing, and the stays were intact and unbent.

I was humiliated to make such a dumb mistake, but the durability of my ULA pack was the reason I was able to carry on eight more days instead of having to bail.

Comfort and convienience June 11, 2017
Reviewer: Daniel Phillips from Oceanside, CA United States  
I couldn't be happier with my new Circuit.The pack was very comfortable and adjustable right out of the box. The layout is perfect. The Circuit is well thought out. My initial impression during the first miles was that it didn't require a break in. It fits great and feels much lighter than my old pack even when loaded with my usual 28 lbs. I was most impressed with the hip belt design. I can snug the upper of the four belt sections to angle the belt which keeps it on my hips. My old pack kept putting my upper glutes to sleep because it kept sliding down my waist. The belt pockets are fantastic. Easy to access and big! I really like the large pack pockets with the adjustable shock cord draw openings. Nothing falls out. The expanding pouch on the front will allow a ton of gear even after the main pack is as tight as a tick.
Thanks ULA.

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.
