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 ripstop 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.

Comfortable Work Horse October 13, 2014
Reviewer: RHowell from Richardson, TX United States  
I am an avid backpacker that has been actively taking steps to lower my base weight.  The Circuit was a crucial step in that direction, after having come from a pack that weighed almost 5 lbs. I had become used to some creature comforts afforded by a heavier pack.  I feel like the Circuit accommodated me well in the transition.  I  went on an 18 mile trip this past weekend.  I brought my son (10yrs old) along.  This was his first backpacking trip.  He was carrying some of our water a tent and some clothing and sleeping gear in an old Kelty external frame pack.  After just a few miles in, he was uncomfortable with his pack and I took the tent.  After a while longer, I relieved him of half his water as well.  The additional 9 lbs that I took from him pushed me to the limit of the recommended weight of the Circuit, but it performed like a champ!  I would not ever plan to carry that much weight, but was pleased with how it performed. I highly recommend this pack!

Initial impression is very positive October 1, 2014
Reviewer: michael boisvert from merrimack, NH United States  
I have taken this pack on an overnight(20 lbs) but not had the opportunity for a multiple night trip, yet.
I found the pack very comfortable. Excellent hip belt. The Circuit felt like it was part of me.I like that I could actually remove the water bottle from its pocket with the pack on. The hip belt pockets are large and convenient. I am used to top loaders so that is not an issue for me.
I was out for 7 days a few weeks ago with 30+ lbs and wish I had this pack,then.
I am 6'1" and ordered Large torso. 36"-37"waist and after a phone call to ULA for advice , got the medium hip belt, which seems fine. Hope to have this pack for a long time.

Excellent Pack September 15, 2014
Reviewer: David B. from Boston, MA  
This is the first lightweight backpack I have owned, and I couldn't be happier with it.

I chose the Circuit over its alternatives because of its simple design and ability to carry heavier loads than many of the other options out there. While I was originally concerned about ordering a pack online without trying it on first, I'm extremely pleased with the Circuit's comfort. I first took it on a 3 day hike in the White Mtns in NH. I carried around 20 lbs, but it felt like far less. The suspension system distributed the weight perfectly around my hips. I was able to move quickly and efficiently, and I hardly felt the weight of the pack on my back and shoulders.

So much has already been said about the quality of ULA's products -- do a quick online search and you'll find glowing reviews everywhere. While I can't comment on the competition, I can vouch for the Circuit's capabilities. From weight to comfort to versatility, it's a pack that seemingly has it all.

ULA Circuit September 8, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Durango, CO  
I purchased the Circuit for a month-long thru-hike on the Colorado Trail. The pack was very comfortable - many days I barely noticed wearing it. I usually carried 20-25 pounds, splitting the food (7 days at most) and gear with my husband.

Overall, the shoulder straps and hip belt were comfortable, although at times, the hip belt felt too narrow and one shoulder strap tended to slip. A few adjustments usually took care of any problems.

I especially appreciated the mesh pocket (for the day's food) and the zip pockets on the belt (for camera, snacks and sunscreen).  

The hand straps and bottle straps on the shoulder straps were not used or needed; I can see using them on future trips.  

The beauty of this pack is in the well thought-out design; light, simple, and extremely functional. The  comfortable fit allowed me to forget about the load, and enjoy the journey.
