MATERIALS

ULA 400 ROBIC

Our ULA 400 Robic fabric, is the toughest stuff ounce for ounce we’ve ever seen. Highly tear and abbrassion resistant, ULA 400 Robic is reinforced with a ripstop weave which increases tear strength and stitch holding capabilities. Low stretch, this is the perfect fabric for making backpacks, day packs, duffles, and pouches, that’s why we use it! This 100% Robic Nylon fabric has a 3 pass Teflon DWR (Durable Water Repelant) and a 3 pass PU (Poly Urathane) Coating, making it highly water resistant.

COLORS: Original Green, Black, Orange, Red, Blue Blaze, Teal, Purple, Grey

7 reviews for Packrat

  1. Stacy

    The perfect day pack or everyday pack. Lightweight and room for all your essentials/wants. Everything I love about my ULA Circuit only in a smaller version. I’ve been waiting for ULA to make the perfect day bag and it’s the packrat!! Great price. You’ll love it if this I’m sure

  2. AJ Ligas

    Highly recommend the Packrat. The versality is second to none. When I was looking for a day pack I wanted something light but able to carry a full days load or possibly enough for a single night and this pack meets all those requirements. I also plan to use this bag as a travel bag and my laptop and accessories along with some clothes fit perfect.

    Deep side and back pockets so carrying any standard size water is possible along with stashing items you need quick access to. One small issue was being able to reach smaller water bottles while on the trail but switching back to my standard 750ml or 1l made this a mute issue. Wide and comfortable shoulder straps finish it out to made an excellent pack.

    I was also very pleased with the build quality of the pack. No loose threads or stitching. I could go on but it would be best for you just to try this pack for yourself and feel the true pleasure of finally finding the day pack you’ve been hunting for.

  3. Justin Viegas

    Perfect bag. When I say perfect I mean perfect !
    I’ve been looking for a lightweight easy access bag for years! Finally found it !
    Easily attach shoulder strap pockets for various items with the daisy chains !
    5/5 highly recommend !

  4. Melissa

    Fantastic and simple pack for peak bagging or ultralight overnights. Very comfortable to carry with room for all the essentials and more. I love the deep side and back pockets. The stretchy fabric is very durable and keeps the things you need very handy. The drawstring top adds to the interior space or the ability to carry items cinched to the top with the top strap. I had been looking for a new daypack and I’m very pleased with this one.

  5. Justin Viegas

    Perfect daypack. When I say perfect I mean perfect.
    I’ve been looking for a pack like this for many years – easy access, lightweight and affordable.
    Added a shoulder water bottle strap for easier access. I tend to wear my pack up high so works out perfect. Even has daisy chains to make that easy addition!
    Happy with my purchase.

  6. Zakk Schroeter

    Love this pack perfect day pack mesh pockets are clutch and deep any of the packs these guys make are great!

  7. Scotty

    ULA nailed it with this one! This pack is the perfect size for day hikes. Enough room to throw in a jacket, some snacks, or other randoms that I might need during a quick hike. Plenty of space inside and I love that it has the mesh pocket on the back for quick stowing of items or if my jacket gets wet.
