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.

The Ohm 2.0 is one tough pack that's been built to last despite its minimal weight.

TOTAL WEIGHT: 33.1 | 938 GM *

Listed weight is for a size medium torso with size medium hip belt. Y-strap option adds 0.7 oz to total pack weight. Bottom straps option adds 0.6 oz to total weight.


“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.

These packs are sewn with our new ULA 400 Robic fabric, the toughest stuff ounce for ounce we’ve ever seen.

Colors Available: Original Green, Black, Royal Blue, Teal, Purple


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.


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 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.


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″

Have any questions or don’t quite fall in the normal range? Give us a call or send us an email!


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.


A: “Base weight” refers to the total weight of all gear carried — including the weight of your ULA backpack.

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.


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.


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.


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.

    Best pack. I am in awe of this pack. I actually never knew a pack could feel this comfortable. I’ve always used packs with the fully structured back and padding like osprey etc. I always struggled with sore shoulders and bruised hips. With the ohm 2.0 no sore bruised hips, shoulders feel fine and when I put it on I’m not constantly readjusting for comfort.
    Thank you sooo much ULA for an awesome product, I am one happy hiker

  2. Robert W. (verified owner)

    Just got back form a six day trek in Yosemite to Red Peak Pass. A few week before a three day in Grand Teton. This is the first long distances I have done with the Ohm 2.0 and I am very pleased. System was easily able to hold the load I was wanting to bring(~30) and carried it well. No issues on either trip. Everything tight and in good shape at the end of it all. A solid purchase.

  3. Lemur

    I thru hiked the entire AT and later PCT using the Ohm. It has some wear and tear after 4,000+ miles but honestly could probably make one more thru hike before it needs retired. What more do you need to know?

  4. Austin Maruna (verified owner)

    I just completed my first trek with my Ohm 2.0 and I was wildly impressed. This pack is comfortable on the shoulders and flexible around the hips, which made some of the 9k ft of elevation over 3 days much easier. This size is perfect too. Large enough to pack everything I need and small enough to make sure I don’t overpack. Perfect pack for me, thanks ULA.

  5. Gregory Emmanuel (verified owner)

    I have used my Ohm 2.0 on 12 trips now and I’m still in awe, whoever designed it knew what they were doing. I ordered mine online using ULAs guide to measure for the size and then worked with ULA to dial the pack in for a good fit. Now it fits perfectly and fits me like a glove. ULA was phenomenal in answering my questions and helping me. My typical load is about 20 – 25 lbs but on one occasion I was loaded down with 31 lbs and the pack performed perfectly well, it was comfortable and stable. The Ohm 2.0 is extremely well made and those cavernous external pockets are unbelievably practical. I love this pack for its fit and simplicity, thank you ULA!

  6. Robbie

    This is my first very lightweight pack and after loading it up with all of my camping gear, I took it on some local, moderate for Colorado (rated hard on alltrails) hikes. I’m blown away by how comfortable this pack is and SO STOKED to do some multi day loops in the next few weeks with it. Every hike has been the exact same level of difficulty as if I wasn’t wearing the pack. Zero discomfort afterward. Make sure to watch the “How to fit and adjust” video on youtube as it is really helpful for getting it exactly right.

  7. Icarus

    My Ohm 2.0 lasted an entire AT thru hike back in 2015, another 1000 miles after that, and it’s still going strong. I haven’t had to repair or patch any part of the pack either.

  8. George Cuthbert (verified owner)

    Great 4 season backpack !! Great lightweight pack for spring , summer , and fall trips . Yet you can stuff (and I do mean STUFF) enough gear for winter Love mine !!

  9. George Cuthbert (verified owner)

    Awesome backpack !! I have used this pack all 4 seasons. Small enough for lightweight summer trips, but big enough to stuff ( and I do mean STUFF ) gear to stay warm in winter. You won’t be sorry

  10. Flavrt

    Key to my 12 lb base load limit for 34 day hike. Roomy, comfortable, durable, convenient, and even prestigious. Great pack and company. Dozens on the trail asked who made it.

  11. Ellie Thomas (Lucy Lulu)

    My OHM 2.0 has about a 1,000 mikes on it now, and is going strong. I could go lighter, and have used both frame and frameless, but nothing beats the comfort of my OHM!

    When I hike in the summer, it is definitely not full, and that is with about 4 days of food, but I’ve not found a more comfortable pack yet, so it’s ok it is a little more than I need. It will be going with me on the AZT and the Colorado Trail this upcoming year 2020).

    I appreciate the ruggedness and price point of the OHM. Thanks for making a great product!

  12. Miki G.

    I ordered a custom color Ohm 2.0 in August with the help of Steve, one of ULA’s reps. The pack turned out beautifully. I took my first trip with it this week in Dolly Sods and its performance outshined its pretty looks! Though it took me a few tries to really dial in the fit, it was comfortable, stable and well balanced. I did 20 miles in 3 days (I know, I’m slow) and never once felt pinched or abraided by the hip belt, the back pad or the shoulder straps. My base weight was 15 pounds with a total loadout of 25 pounds – hey, I took way too much food. Don’t judge :p

    Thank you, ULA, for my pretty Ohm 2.0. Just wanted to let you know you did an amazing job with my pack and it exceeded my very high expectations!

  13. Miki

    I just received my very first ULA pack, a customized, 2 color Ohm 2.0. It’s beautiful, lightweight and fits like a dream. Thank you for putting my dragonflies on it. I will recommend you to anyone looking for new gear!

  14. Quinton Wall (verified owner)

    I own both the Catalyst and Ohm having clocked thousands of miles on both over approximately 5 years. During this time I have only ever had 2 issues: 1) a small tear in the mesh on the Catalyst (looks like the new Catalyst did away with the mesh) – which was probably my fault 2) I lost the hand loops – definitely my fault. When I emailed Chris re purchasing new loops, he wouldn’t let me buy them and sent a pair for free. Not only are the packs exception quality, so are the people and service behind the products. If you are simply comparing ounces to other packs, those are all made with DCF which IME breaks down around 800-1000 miles of use, and typically list weight before things like belt pockets are added.

    The only downside I have found with the ULA packs is they don’t break which doesn’t help my pack obsession of wanting to buy/try new packs – they are just that good!

  15. Jeff W.

    I bought my OHM 2.0 four or five years ago. Still had the older style side pockets. In fact, I believe it was the first one built with the black choice in the robic fabric. Anyway, I seem to have a love affair with backpacks and have tried out several makes and models since that time, always looking for the perfect pack. I pulled my OHM 2.0 out last weekend after not using it for a couple of years. It’s comfort blew me away compared to the other packs I’d been using. I carried it for a 25 mile weekend through the Whites, heavier than usual (21 lbs or so) since I was with my daughter and carrying a bigger tent and food for two. The OHM is the most comfortable pack I’ve ever worn. Let’s just say there will be some packs up for sale soon as the OHM is my go to pack from now on.

    Keep up the good work, ULA!

  16. cheery (verified owner)

    I completed 900+ miles on the PCT this year using this pack. I love it!
    The pack held up well despite the rough handling through the desert as well as the heavy snow on the sierras. I was able to fit the BV450 bear canister into the pack sideways which provided a well balanced pack against my back to help me navigate the steep snow climbs through the high passes. I was never out of balance like the other packs I’ve used when I had to strap it on the top. The huge side pockets carried my cook system while the other side carried my water filter. This made it very accessable when needed. I highly recommend the Ohm.

  17. michael glander (verified owner)

    i am completely in love with this pack and this company i talked to chris a bit about customization before deciding to just go with the standard pack with a roll top option and its amazing. i had it for a week before i couldnt stand to not take it out and get some mud on it only did about 7 miles but with my 13 pound base weight over 2 liter of water and 3 meals of food i could hardly even feel it on my back i cant wait to carry it on an actual trip. the best part besides its weight the side pockets i can actually reach them and one will hold 3 smart water bottles no problem and i can keep my cook kit or lunch bag in the other

  18. Michael Mavrogordato (verified owner)

    I am 69 years old, had never backpacked before and I just completed the camino de santiago ( all 799 km worth) with the ohm 2. I was careful to only carry 7kg.( excluding water), but this pack fit like a glove and was a pleasure to carry. My only observation is that the two huge side pockets were useless to me because they were too large to hold anything securely. Aside from that, every strap ( once you got the hang of it) worked perfectly and the hip belt was the envy of the camino because unlike most packs I saw, it was wide and strong and actually gripped unto skinny hips. Congratulations on a well designed and manufactured product.

    Updating my review:

    Just got done with a gnarly 40 mile hike on the MN Border Route trail with this pack. Trail was really, really overgrown, super uneven terrain with roots and rocks all over, mixed rain as well.

    My previous review still stands, for the most part. I loved the lower lumbar pad and no longer think a full length one was needed. The pack itself performed flawlessly, however I will get rid of the nylon interior pouch for a cuben one (water proof). The pack material, I found, once wet, stayed wet for a while. Though really not much water entered the bag—just the hip belt absorbed some.

    The pull string top is wonderful, and it is a great size. I carried 30lb with water for the first day or so and carried great. I had the waterbottles on the shoulders and, although comfortable, the bunjee strings really destroyed my smart bottles. If shoulder mounting them, I’d probably opt for the shoulder sleeves for Smart Bottles that some other manufacturers make.

    The fact that the hip belt is sew in, but flexible, makes this an amazing pack for uneven terrain or scrambling. It really moved with my body and I pretty much never adjusted it again after I cinched it into place when I initially put it on in the morning.

    All in all: happy pack, happy customer.

  20. Daylan Wagener

    I love this pack. It carries super comfortably with all of the loads I’ve loaded it with.. I’ve had on several trips and it still looks new. The stretch pocket is great. The side pockets are huge witch is great. My only minor complaint is the ice axe holder is in the middle, so it hard to use when the mesh pocket is full.

  21. jthomas7002

    I have nothing but positive things to say about both ULA customer service and the Ohm. Chris is super responsive and ready to help. The Ohm packs and carries fabulously. The side pockets and front stretch pocket are as functional as advertised; I carried all my water in one side pocket and my wet gear in the front. This really opened a lot of space in the main pack for my gear and plenty of food. ULA will be at the top of the list the next time I’m looking for a pack.

  22. Rick

    First off, I contacted Chris a few times prior to ordering. His email response time was very fast (within an hour) and he was very informative. Kudos on the customer service portion of my review!

    Now on to the pack. The Ohm 2.0 is pretty much the only pack I considered from ULA- given that my usual load for a 3-day trip is around 21-22lbs. As such, I felt the Circuit would be a bit overkill for my needs. The Ohm 2.0 is constructed very well; and I like the fact that the straps are extra long- especially the load lifter straps. I also really like the shoulder strap bottle holders. If you’re someone with limited shoulder mobility like me, ULA is a perfect option. I could never reach behind me and grab a water bottle from side pockets. The Ohm doesn’t have a ton of storage features, but what it does have, it executes flawlessly. For example, the side pockets are huge, and can accommodate my entire cook kit, flask, tarp, hammock suspension, stakes, fuel, sawyer mini w/1L of unfiltered water, with room to spare. Also, the stretchy mesh pocket on the front is awesome! I don’t think I could ever run out of room to cram stuff, if I needed to. Lastly, the hip belt pockets hold a lot of misc. items- snacks, compass, headlamp, etc… The Ohm 2.0 has a few great pockets- which I like. Most mainstream pack manufacturers take a “let’s see how many quasi-functional doo-dads we can cram into this pack” approach. And rarely are those features used, nor do they usually function well. The Ohm 2.0 is utilitarian. I like that.

    Now onto real world usage. My first outing with the pack was a 2-day, 3 night 30 mile trek on the OHT, in 90-ish degree temps. There were a lot of environmental factors to make this trip uncomfortable, but my pack was not one of them. The Ohm 2.0 handled everything well. It brushed up against its fair share of foliage, branches, and trees, and sustained zero damage. I really like how the pack moved with my body. It carried my load very well and comfortably the entire time. It does a good job of keeping the weight close to the body and on the hips, where it belongs. The bevy of adjustment points on the suspension is a huge plus; and it really allows the user to “dial in” the pack the way they like.

    I don’t foresee this pack wearing out any time soon. But once it does, I would not hesitate to replace it with another Ohm- perhaps a 3.0 version?

  23. Josh (verified owner)

    I have to say this pack is somewhat non-traditional. No brain? No roll top? It really is very different than the norm out there—and I love it. I used to work several years at REI, have done countless pack fittings, and used pretty much every major pack brand out there from canoe trips to mountaineering on one of the seven summits. The Ohm 2.0 fits the bill nicely for any of my trips for 3 days, in any weather condition, from mid-summer to -40 below F in winter. It only carries 30lbs well (really, that is a very appropriate max weight). So 3 days any condition is pretty darn good.

    For summer, I have gotten my base weight below 10lbs, so I am able to sneak about 5 days out of this pack for longer backpacking trips. This is pretty much a single sport pack—I do bring a flyrod often, but that’s about it. For multisport, look for something bigger like the catalyst.

    -I love how the pack moves with your body
    -I do think they will probably continue to improve the back panel. I like mine with the lower lumbar pad, but find it carries best when I have a 6 section z-lite instead of their thin foam pad—although the thin foam pad is nice in winter, where that space is taken up with bulkier items and the pad can go on top of the pack.

    -Please add a strap retainer loop just above the haul loop on the top outside of the frame. That way the top compression strap wont continually fall through the haul loop where I have to restring it. That would be a nice and convenient feature at no weight penalty.
    -Side water bottle pockets could probably benefit from being 1-2 in deeper–but whos counting?

    -I managed to hook my Goal0 solar panel comfortably on the back of the pack using the ice axe loop and ice axe straps mid-way up the pack. They work perfectly for that–no extra daisy chains needed!

    At first I was skeptical, but I love this thing and can’t imagine getting something else for sub 30lb carry capacity. I imagine many years of hard use.

  24. Katya Gradler

    Of the 5-6 packs I’ve tried over the years, this is certainly the most functional and comfortable. I have narrow shoulders and a short torso, and the sizing works well for me. For how lightweight it is, it’s incredibly durable. I usually take it out for 3-4 day backpacking trips with an average weight of 20 pounds, but I’ve found it comfortable for the 15-25 lb. range. If you’re not great at organizing or don’t have your pack down to essentials, this is a good pack to work on that since there’s one main huge pocket and you need to put things in so that what you’ll use during the day is accessible. Love this pack!

  25. Arlen N (verified owner)

    Just got back from a 3 day, 2 night, 18 mile hike with my new OHM 2.0. Awesome! I have had 2 or 3 other packs and this is, BY FAR, the best pack I have ever owned. I did a lot of research when looking for a new pack. The features, customer service, and the fact that it seems like all the reviews on YouTube about ULA were great just kept leading me back to ULA. Absolutely love the pack!

  26. Matt O (verified owner)

    This pack is awesome. It fits perfectly, it carries my load great, its super comfy, and extremely lightweight. I was unsure of my measurements, so I contacted Chris. He gave me his suggestions, and I couldn’t be happier with his recommendation. This is an extremely high quality pack for a very reasonable price. Got a few compliments about it on the trail last weekend too!

  27. Micah

    Best pack I’ve ever owned. I’m a short-distance backpacker, but I have been through 4-5 different packs over the years. Every feature on this pack just makes sense; you can tell it was designed by and for backpackers. For the life of me I cannot understand why more pack makers don’t put pockets where you can actually access them!! ULA does that with the HUGE side pockets and the 2 generous hipbelt pockets. You can even add a shoulder strap pocket, which I did. The frame is a bit fragile and will bend/or break if you abuse it, so be mindful of that. Never had a comfort issue with this pack loaded to 20-25 lbs, for 16-17 mile days. Durable as well. I used it for hunting one year as a daypack (too big for that) and it held up to me slinging it on/off in the brush about 100 times.

  28. Critter

    I used this pack on my 2016 thru hike of the at and loved it. It rides perfectly with or without the frame. Robic fabric is really strong and I was very rough with it and it still held up for another 1900 miles on the PCT. I just replaced it with the newer model and am even more impressed. Thanks for such great quality packs and excellent customer service.

  29. Syndey

    I had a 2016 multicam pack on my 2017 AT thru hike and loved everything about it.
    The pack is more like a 40L pack than the quoted 60 liters which was confusing before I bought it, but it’s still a sizable pack for anyone going ultralight. Most of the attached extras are easy to pop out and the back panel foam can easily be replaced by a sleeping pad (i used a thermarest neoair trekker as the back pad). The frame transfers load pretty well but if the pack isn’t full the top strap will start to bend the frame over time. The pack was still comfortable at 35lbs and carried well. Compression system is a bit weird to use at first but is very good at locking in your gear and keeping everything compressed for better load transfer. My favorite thing about this pack are the absolutely massive water bottle pockets. They’re huge. Massive. Game changing. Easily fits two 1.5L smartwater bottles or a bunch of extra gear. The pack carries well with and without a hipbelt and still transferred weight superbly even without the frame due to the phenomenal compression system. Easily my favorite pack.

  30. Anthony LaFortuna

    Best backpack I’ve ever owned!

    I had two backpacks before this one and this ULA Ohm 2.0 is amazing. It is the most comfortable backpack I have ever had. I used to have neck pain whenever I went backpacking, which is really bad because I love to backpack. On my last trip, I used this backpack and had no neck pain. I guess the other packs didn’t fit just perfect or perhaps the design was an issue. I don’t know, but what I do know is that THIS pack is awesome. Huge pockets on your hip, huge side pockets on the bag, big stretch pocket on the front and I got the roll top, which is an awesome feature. Get this pack, it’s light, it holds up well, and it’s priced very fair for such a good pack.

  31. Dr Bryan Ryles

    Well built, lightweight pack!

    Have you recently been REALLY happy…twice??? That’s me, now that I’ve found ULA. First, the customer service, as mentioned by other reviewers is real…from Rodney to Chris, the CEO/owner. Great follow-up and instant shipping! Second, (naturally most important !), the pack. I’ve only taken it on a long day hike yesterday, with only partial load of about 16 pounds including clothes and water: no tent, sleeping bag/pad, or supply of food. So, I will edit my review after a weekend two-night overnighter. From the shoulder harness to the packability, the pack feels good and huge side pockets make the pack fully functional while hiking. Plus, the hand loops really are not ” gimmicky,” but a real plus to rest your hands! Fully, multi-adjustable hip belt works well and allows for infinite adjustment. Can’t wait to try it out with full gear. So far, love it! ( Plus, any pack with material called ” Purple Blaze,” for us 60’s fans, can’t go wrong, right Jimmy Hendrix????)!!

    Great Pack!

    used the OHM 2.0 this year to walk the Camino de Santiago. At age 70 I had never backpacked before. I round this pack wonderful and comfortable. ULA helped me fit my pack perfectly for my body (I emailed pictures, got help.) I recommend it on forums for other Camino walkers, it was comfortable and light. I did not miss the weight-adding pockets on some other packs.

    Great backpack! Awesome Customer Service!

    If you’ve found this page and are considering a ULA OHM 2.0, it’s likely because of the overwhelmingly positive reviews this backpack has received. The design, comfort and quality tends to speak for itself, and at a great value compared to similar packs. What you may not know is the absolutely fantastic customer service you get with this purchase. Without going into lengthy detail, just know that ULA is committed to making sure each and every customer is 100% happy with their products. This was a concern of mine in regards to proper fit but ULA really blew me away with the help I received and they worked with me to make sure everything was right. Don’t think twice about making this purchase.

    Best pack ever!

    I ordered this last season, but was waylaid by some surgery so no opportunity till late last year. So far, the pack is great – stable, close-fitting, comfortable, big enough but not too big; all pretty amazing for a 2-lb pack. I tried both the Ohm 2.0 and the Circuit, but the Ohm carried just as well as the Circuit for me; maybe better and lighter, and I much preferred the compression system on the Ohm – cinch it up and you have a day pack if needed. A real bonus came in with the ability to get some custom features on the order, for me an extra strap on the side to secure a platypus externally, the Circuit pockets, and a belt with larger pockets to carry a camera. All the service was great, product as requested, and super on the trail. I cannot think of what I would ever trade up to in a pack since there are NO issues at all. Definitely a happy camper (literally).
    Perhaps the ONLY request might be an internal sewn-in security pocket for keys and such; but a very small thing. Love it.
