Ohm 2.0

rated 5 of 5 stars Considered to be the second best pack on the AT, this lightweight pack for carrying 15-30 pounds is for experienced hikers and not for your novice hikers. Belt system, load lifters, loops for bottles and other items. I found the pack of my dreams after using the Gregory Z55 and Gossamer G4 over the last couple of years. This will be my Triple Crown pack. OK, again after trying two other packs out (Z55 and G4 45), I have found the pack for my Triple Crown. This is only a 2-pound pack but it carries… Full review

Ohm 2.0

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is now my favorite pack after a year of solid testing in all range of temperatures and trail conditions. A lightweight pack with a suspension frame that helps it carry loads up to 30 pounds comfortably. Except for full winter or over a week long trips, this pack can handle everything I need it to do. The other reviews prior to mine do an excellent job of summarizing the qualities of this pack, and helped me choose the Ohm. I felt after a year that I would add to and support those reviews with… Full review

Catalyst

rated 4.5 of 5 stars One of the lightest full sized packs out there. Comfortable at 40 pounds or less and very durable. I tried quite a few different packs in the 65+ liter range and found that the ULA Catalyst is one of the lightest and most comfortable packs out. It does great between 25-35 pounds but at and over 40 pounds other packs carry the weight better.   My first use of this pack was on the Four Pass Loop in Aspen, Colorado, and we were pinching ounces trying to get weight down. The bear canister cost me 2.5… Full review

Circuit

rated 2 of 5 stars I was very excited to get my Circuit pack after all the glowing reviews. It fell short in almost every aspect. I ordered a ULA Circuit pack based primarily on a blogger's endorsement. I liked the look of the original green and was ready to love it. I never did. Although ULA is helpful with trying to get the right size to the customer, the pack never felt right due to the shoulder harness. The hip belt was comfortable and fine. I did not like how the lower part of the pack was rubbing against my… Full review

Circuit

rated 2 of 5 stars Too light to support much weight. People on the hammock forums and ultralight backpacking forums rave about this pack. I hate it! When I bought it, I wanted to like it. It didn't take long to realize that it wasn't working. I thought maybe I needed to fine tune the adjustment, but no amount of tinkering ever made it right. The manufacturer recommends loads around 30 lbs. with a max of 35.  In my experience it won't even support 25.  The hip belt is just too flimsy. It has a claimed total capacity… Full review
