The Circuit and the Photon had a child, and its name is Spark! The NEW! ULA Kid’s Spark isn’t one of those “faux kids backpacks” that looks great on the shelf but doesn’t cut it in the forest — this is a real pack, built tough for serious young adventurers.
The Spark has inherited the best from both parents. Built on a “mini-sized” Circuit frame, it has the same carbon fiber hoop, removable aluminum frame stay, and foam/mesh back panel as the Circuit. Slightly shorter and a little wider than the Photon, it has the same unique mesh side pockets you’ll find on the Photon. The Spark comes with all the same standard removable parts as it’s parents too — hydration bladder sleeve, hand loops, internal stash pocket, and water bottle holsters on the shoulder straps.
The ULA Spark wasn’t built for one summer of use; it’s been designed to grow with your child, for summer after summer of adventures. The Spark is custom-built to the current torso & waist fit of the child; however, the adjustable harness system means the pack will grow until your little hiker’s torso fits into an adult small sized pack. With a removable/replaceable hipbelt, the hipbelt sizing is endless. Larger sized replacement hip belts can be purchased as needed from our Parts Shop.
Original Green, Black, Red, Orange, Blue Blaze, Grey, Teal and Purple packs are sewn with our 400 Robic Fabric, the toughest stuff ounce for ounce we’ve ever seen. The Multicam Camo pack is sewn with 500 Cordura Fabric. The Cordura is not quite as tear resistant and a little heavier than the Robic, adding an extra ounce to the total pack weight. Now Available in Xpac! Read the “Customization” section below to learn more.
This is one tough pack that will give your mini-hiker years of hiking bliss, even if they’re a bit tough on their gear.
