PROUDLY MADE IN UTAH.

OUR PROCESS

PHILOSOPHY

ULA’s philosophy is simple, we design and build ultralight backpacks to last a lifetime. We design, cut, and sew all of our backpacks in our Logan, Utah shop as we’re committed to keeping our production here in the USA.

DURABILITY

ULA’s core belief is our backpacks should last you a lifetime of hiking. We blend ultralight fabrics + robust product designs to make our backpacks incredibly durable while maximizing comfort and being ultralight.

ULA handcrafts backpacks out of Robic and X-Pac fabrics. Robic, our legacy fabric (we’ve been using it since 2001), offers an incredible blend of ultralight construction + durability that will last you thousands of miles hiking. In 2018, we started making backpacks out of X-Pac, a highly technical fabric that offers extreme durability with the benefit of being waterproof.

COMFORT

Along with durability, ULA feels comfort cannot be sacrificed to save a few ounces. ULA has chosen to prioritize comfort over marketing the lightest weight packs on the market.

Everyone is built and shaped differently, which is why ULA packs are not generically sized. Different style padded shoulder straps, six hipbelt sizes, and several torso length options allow for thousands of combinations so ULA can fit all of our customer’s personal preferences.

AESTHETICS

ULA’s line of packs isn’t just built to be durable, comfortable, and functional. Between the different fabric options, shoulder strap styles, hipbelt sizes, colors, and now fully custom backpacks, there are hundreds of thousands of options to make your own unique pack.

FUNCTIONALITY

ULA’s goal is to provide you, the customer, with a pack that offers everything you need for a weekend or thru-hike while challenging industry norms regarding pack design.
ULA doesn’t follow the industry trends and release new backpacks annually. Instead, we are continuously improving and refining our lineup of packs. We discuss backpacks with our customers daily, and your feedback is essential to our future product design.
