1. TORSO FIT
- Standing upright, tilt your chin to your chest.
- Locate your C7 Vertabra—the large lump at the base of your neck.
- With flexible tape, measure down the length and natural curvature of your spine to your iliac crest/ the top of your hipbone.
- This measurement in inches is your torso length.
TIP: If you're between 2 sizes, order the smaller size. Still not sure? Contact us.
2. TORSO CHART
We've found most people in these height ranges fall into these torso/pack sizes. That being said, it is always best to measure your torso using the guide above.
If you have questions, or your torso size doesn’t seem to make sense for your height, please contact us.
3. HIPBELT FIT
Use the following method to determine your hipbelt inches, then head to Step 4 to see the hipbelt size you need.
Pant Waist Size + 2".
CURVY HIPS: Smallest part of your waist + 5".
STRAIGHT HIPS: Smallest part of your waist + 3".
Smallest Part of waist + 2".
4. HIPBELT SIZE CHART
Find the hipbelt measurement you calculated in Step 3 on the chart. That will be your hipbelt size.
TIP: If you are on the outer edge of a size, order the larger size. [ Ex: If you are 38", you will notice 38" is the last number of the Medium Hipbelt and the first number of the Large Hipbelt. You would want to order a Large.]
5. SHOULDER STRAPS
J-straps are the traditional straight straps. Best for: Lean or straight builds, kids, curved and narrow shoulders.
S-straps contour body curves. Best for: Women, athletic and bigger builds, square and wide shoulders.
TIP: If you have a short torso but a larger upper body, contact us for a slightly longer strap. If you are very large in the upper body you might need XL shoulder straps, again contact us.

Meet the ULA Camino, the most versatile panel loader on the market today. Designed to meet standard Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations for carry-on luggage, the Camino 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 horizontally. Made of 100% 400 Denier Robic fabric with dual aluminum stays, the Camino is tough enough to survive even the most aggressive baggage handler, and yet it weighs in at only 47 oz!
Built to be as comfortable on the trail as the Catalyst, the Camino features the same internal twin stay framesheet, shoulder straps, hipbelt, roll-top closure, and side pockets you know and love. The front panel loader, internal retention straps to hold everything in place, and internal and external zippered mesh pockets allow more organization and easy access.
Whether you’re hopping trains and chicken buses or hiking the Camino de Santiago, staying in a hostel, or out in your tent, the Camino has you covered from airplane to adventure and home again.

Q: DOES THE CAMINO REALLY WORK AS A CARRY ON?
A: Yes. The Camino was designed with air travel in mind. At 22 x 14 x 9 with the collar rolled down, the Camino meets standard Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations for carry-on luggage. However, it is always best to check with your specific airline before traveling, especially when flying with smaller airlines. Also, don’t forget to leave the bear spray, stove fuel, and pocket knives at home.
Q: WHAT MAKES THE CAMINO DIFFERENT FROM THE CATALYST?
A: The Camino was designed for serious travel and backpacking. Built to be as comfortable on the trail as the Catalyst, the Camino features the same internal twin stay framesheet, shoulder straps, hipbelt, roll-top closure, and side pockets you know and love. The front panel loader, internal retention straps to hold everything in place, and internal and external zippered mesh pockets allow more organization and easy access. Whether you’re hopping trains and chicken buses or hiking the Camino de Santiago, staying in a hostel or tent, the Camino has you covered from airplane to adventure.
Q: WHAT MAKES THE CAMINO DIFFERENT FROM THE CATALYST?
A: Yes. Every bear canister on the market other than the Bearikade Expedition will fit into the Camino horizontally. 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 (against the back-panel) is also a good solution.
Alternately, you can build your own pack and add Bottom Straps, or a top Y-strap to carry your pad externally.
Q: CAN A WATER BOTTLE FIT IN THE SIDE POCKETS? CAN I REACH IT?
A: Each side pocket can accommodate two 1-Liter ‘Big Slam’ style bottles.
In general most people can reach back and retrieve a bottle, drink, and return the bottle to the pocket without removing the pack.
The Camino also has a hydration port hole, and a <a href=”https://testing.ula-equipment.com//product/hydration-sleeve/”>Hydration Sleeve</a> can be purchased if you perfer using a water bladder.
Q: HOW DOES THE TOP OF THE PACK STAY CLOSED?
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.
The front zip panel loading design also allows for easy access to all your gear in an instant.
