DISCONTINUED: These Camino 2s are the last of our old colors…get yours before they’re gone!

Meet the Camino 2, the most versatile panel loader on the market today. Designed to meet most airline carry-on specs, the Camino 2 measures 22 x 14 x 9 with the extension collar rolled down. It may be compact, but it's still large enough to easily fit all your gear for an extended hike — heck, it will even fit a bear canister!

Made of 100% 400 Denier Robic fabric with dual aluminum stays, the Camino 2 is tough enough to survive even the most aggressive baggage handler, and yet it weighs in at only 50 oz!

How awesome is the Camino 2? We'll let Allen from Mississippi handle that question:

"I received my new Camino pack in purple blaze, and I am stoked! What a great job you did in the redesign!! I love my original Camino, but the new one is much better. As you promised, the new roll top added the extra space I needed for a full Winter pack. Perfect!! I also purchased a **INSERT COMPETITORS PACK** for comparison but will be returning it. The new Camino beats it "hands down"! I love the zippered front panel because I can access gear in the middle and bottom of the pack without unloading everything from the top. I don't know why anyone wouldn't consider your new Camino pack....you hit a home run!" — Allen from Mississippi

MATERIALS

ULA 400 ROBIC

With the exception of the MultiCam Camo (See Below.) Camino 2 packs are sewn with our new ULA 400 Robic fabric, the toughest stuff ounce for ounce we’ve ever seen.

Colors Available: Red, Gray

HIPBELT SIZING MADE SIMPLE

 
MEN
For men, use the waist size of your pants and add 2 inches. The “HIPBELT SIZE” option above includes numbered measurements. The number you calculated (waist size + 2) will determine the size you need. If you are on the outer edge of a size, order the next size up! Example: If you wear a size 36 pant, add 2 to get 38. Since 38 is the last number of the Medium Hipbelt and the first number of the Large Hipbelt, you would want to order a Large.
 
WOMEN
For most women, measure the smallest part of your waist and add 5 inches. If you are straighter through the hips, add 3 inches instead of 5. The “HIPBELT SIZE” option above includes numbered measurements. The number you calculated (waist size + 5) will determine the size you need. If you are on the outer edge of a size, order the next size up! Example: If your waist size is 26, add 5 to get 31. You would need a Small hipbelt.
  

MEASURING YOUR TORSO LENGTH

 
Torso measurement is the best guide we have for proper pack fit, but it isn’t foolproof. If your torso measurement is between 2 sizes, order the smaller size. If you have questions, or your torso size doesn’t seem to make sense for your height, please email peter@ula-equipment.com and he can guide you along. If you are between sizes on the hipbelt it’s best to go with the larger size, it gives you more padding and puts the pockets in a better position.

To accurately measure your torso length for a correct pack fit, grab a buddy and follow the steps below…

  • Standing upright, tilt your chin to your chest.
  • Locate the largest lump on the back of your neck. It should be located close to the base of your neck.
  • From this large bone, measure (with the flexible tape) down the length and natural curvature of your spine to the top of your waist band, the top of which is resting on the top your hipbone. This measurement in inches is your torso length.

 

PACK SIZE TORSO LENGTH HIKER’S HEIGHT
SMALL 15″ – 18″ UNDER 5’6″
MEDIUM 18″ – 21″ 5’6″ TO 6’0″
LARGE 21″ – 24″ 5’10” TO 6’4″

CHOOSING A SHOULDER STRAP STYLE

 
J STRAPS
The J straps are the traditional straps, and work best on most men with average builds. If you are very large in the upper body you might need XL shoulder straps, give us a call for that. Many men with athletic builds, i.e. strong, square shoulders will find the S straps work better. Swimmers, climbers, weight lifters, surfers, triathletes, XC skiers, etc usually prefer the S straps.
 
S STRAPS
The S straps work best on almost all women and men with square shoulders and good posture. If you are a short torso, but with a larger upper body, give us a call, we may want to give you a slightly longer strap, there’s no charge for it, so don’t be shy, pick up the phone or send us an email.

Q: WHAT DOES RECOMMENDED BASE WEIGHT MEAN?

A: “Base weight” refers to the total weight of all gear carried — including the weight of your ULA backpack. This weight also includes things like water bottles and food stuff sacks, but not the weight of water and food as this will vary during each trip. Knowing your base weight will help you determine which suspension system will best handle your load on the trail.

Q: DO I NEED THE S-STRAP OR THE J-STRAP? WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

A: The J straps are the traditional straps, and work best on most men with average builds. If you are very large in the upper body you might need XL shoulder straps, give us a call for that. Many men with athletic builds, i.e. strong, square shoulders will find the S straps work better. Swimmers, climbers, weight lifters,surfers, triathletes, XC skiers, etc usually prefer the S straps.

Q: CAN A WATER BOTTLE FIT IN THE SIDE POCKETS? IF SO, CAN I REACH IT? HOW DO THEY CLOSE?

A: Each side pocket can accommodate two 1-Liter ‘Big Slam’ style bottles. A Nalgene-style bottle will also fit, but in your quest to lighten up, that should have been replaced a long time ago! In general most people can reach back and retrieve a bottle, drink, and return the bottle to the pocket without removing the pack. The top of the side pockets are angled for easier access, and adjust singlehandedly with a cord lock and internal bungee to open and close.

Q: CAN I FIT A BEAR CANISTER INTO THE CAMINO 2? CAN IT FIT HORIZONTALLY?

A: Yes. Every bear canister on the market other than the Bearikade Expedition will fit into the Camino 2 horizontally. Keep in mind it is best to pack something between the hard sided canister and the bottom of the pack.

Q: WHERE DO I STRAP MY SLEEPING PAD?

A: If you are using an inflatable pad, we recommended storing it in the interior of the pack to avoid punctures. A foam pad can easily be secured beneath the top compression strap that goes over the top of the pack or beneath the front shock cord compression. Although not necessary for optimum performance, positioning your sleeping pad into the interior of the Camino 2 (against the back-panel) is also a good solution.

Q: HOW DOES THE TOP OF THE CAMINO 2 STAY CLOSED? IS IT EASY TO ACCESS THE MAIN BODY OF THE PACK BAG?

A: The top of the pack closes like a dry bag (also known as a rolltop) very similar to what river runners use to create a water resistant seal for their gear bags. The back of the collar is slightly taller than the front. Once you are packed, the collar can be rolled down upon itself to effectively create a barrier to water penetration. Once rolled, each side of the collar can be buckled to the sides of the pack or the two yellow buckles on the top can also be fastened to each other.

Yes! The front zip panel loading design allows for easy access to all your gear in an instant.
