Clear

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.

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.

Original Green, Black, Red, Orange and Purple Blaze packs are sewn with our new ULA 210 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 2 OZ to the total pack weight. Either way, the Ohm 2.0 is one tough pack that’s been built to last despite its minimal weight.

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. Generally we find that if you are between sizes on the torso it’s best to go with the smaller size, if you are between sizes on the hipbelt it’s best to go with the larger size.

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 proper.
  • 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

 
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: 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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????)!!

    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.
