Our backpacks no longer include hydration sleeve, internal stash pocket, hand loops or water bungie bottle holders. They are available as add-on items going forward, and can easily be added from the cart, or from the Accessories.
The Ohm 2.0 is the pack for the fast folks, the ones who travel light, but still take a prudent amount of gear to be safe and comfortable. The 2.0 uses the same belt and shoulder strap system as our larger packs, so comfort and weight transfer are as good as it gets. Also, like our larger packs, the hip-belt can move up or down in its sleeve, allowing you to fine-tune the torso length. As of Fall 2021, all Ohm 2.0's come standard with a roll-top closure.
The Ohm 2.0 is a full featured, full suspension (active) ultralight pack that offers exceptional load control, on-trail functionality, and full body compression. Combining a 1.2 oz carbon fiber/delrin active suspension hoop and near full body compression, the Ohm 2.0 maximizes load control, weight transfer, pack compression, and overall pack rigidity in an ultralight package.
Now Available in Xpac! Read the “Customization” section below to learn more.

REC’D MAX LOAD: 30 LBS OR LESS
REC’D BASE WEIGHT: 12 LBS OR LESS
“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.

HIPBELT SIZING MADE SIMPLE
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.
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, there are many other factors which will determine a proper fit. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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″|
|X-LARGE||24″ +||OVER 6’4″|

CHOOSING A SHOULDER STRAP STYLE
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.
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: CAN A WATER BOTTLE FIT IN THE SIDE POCKETS? IF SO, CAN I REACH IT?
A: Personally, we prefer to carry a smaller 20 oz bottle in the Ohm 2.0. The shorter height is more secure in the ~6″ tall pocket, and is easier to reach than a taller 32 oz bottle. 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 are keep under tension with non-adjustable 1/2″ elastic.
Q: HOW DO I USE MY SLEEPING PAD IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE OHM 2.0? WHAT PADS WORK BEST?
A: Just about any lightweight pad (foam or inflatable) can be used for additional support and padding inside the Ohm 2.0. Three quarters and full length pads that can be folded (as opposed to rolled) work the best. If you are using an inflatable mattress, deflate, then fold it into 1/3’s or 1/5’s before inserting. We also supply a ¼ inch piece of open cell foam with the pack that works very well for those of you not carrying a sleeping pad.
Q: WHAT EXACTLY IS THE VARIABLE COMPRESSION SYSTEM (VCS) AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
A: The bane of many ultralight packs is the lack of adequate compression. They work great when they are fully loaded (and therefore relatively stable in terms of load control), but suffer when the total volume is not packed. The Variable Compression System on the Ohm 2.0 allows the entire pack body to be compressed no matter the overall volume of gear you have. We use non-stretch cordage as it maximizes compression and is lighter, and our 2mm nickel grommets act as cordage guides to ensure a smooth pull and stability.
Q: WHAT IS THE SUSPENSION LOOP? HOW DOES IT WORK?
A: The suspension hoop used in the Ohm 2.0 is a minimal solution in helping you transfer load between shoulder and hip. If you imagine an upside ‘U’ you get a sense of how the hoop is positioned and how it functions. The upper arch of the ‘U’ ties into the shoulder straps, while each leg of the ‘U’ ties into the hipbelt. These points of contact allow for a range of suspension flexibility while being rigid enough to support loads up to 30 lbs. In addition, because the suspension is located to the periphery of the pack body, the backpanel is ‘soft.’ This results in a pack that can handle a load and does not dictate your body’s movements — but rather responds to how you move.
