I am a ultralight weight backpacker my base weight is between 10-12 lbs and pack weight 20-22 lbs for a 4 day trip. I usually pack my tent in the front mesh so it can dry, along with the fly, my trowel, bandannas, and a few things I may want to have easy access to. It's very sturdy and you can put a LOT in to the front mesh pocket area. The last backpacking trip I went on the person with me was envious because he could have stored half of his gear in the front mesh area alone. The back pad that comes with it isn't worth using. I did cut down my thermarest ridgerest to about 3 feet and it makes for awesome back support and a sleep pad. You can cram a lot of stuff in to this pack! I love the drawstring closure on top. I use the treking pole loops to to hold my tent poles and stuff the ends in to my drink holder on the side. During some of my last trip I was carrying a half liter platypus and a 1 liter smart water bottle in a single pocket and had no issues with anything falling out. I was actually able to secure both of my trecking poles safely in just one of the loops. The shoulder straps are very comfortable!And the buckle on the shoulder straps is genious, you flip the locking buckle from the left to the right then press the connecting buckle in. Rather than just having it jutting out toward the connecting buckle. This means you don't have to worry about the chest strap or buckle rubbing on your chest. I do wish that the hip belt had a little more padding toward the buckle, but I guess it helps with the weight. The top buckle worked awesome for supporting my solar panel. I carried this pack along with me for 61 miles in 4 days on the Appalachian trail and never paid any attention to how rough I was being with it.Read more ›

Rater creds: recreational backpacker, working up to a thru hike of the ADT
Test run: The first 107 miles of the Long Trail, VT (Mass Border to Killington, July 2011)

The pack performed wonderfully for what it is. What is it? A simple backpack for those wanting to move fast and stay light.

The big Plus: Very lightweight, very simple
The big (and only) Minus: Has a very meager suspension system

I overpacked, which was annoying on me but excellent for a test of the pack. For a ruck with no suspension system like you might find on a Gregory or an Osprey, it faired well. The weight did tend to sink and pull from my back a bit, but I think I may have gotten a slightly larger size than I should have (got large, should have gotten med). After a 20 miler for my last day, I was a little weary and wishing for some pack lifters, but still not frustrated by the design.

In six days, it held up very well. No holes, no scrapes, no rips, and I do tend to abuse my gear.

This is NOT for someone who likes amenities. It is a bare-bones, ultralight, nut-job rucksack for people who want to wake up, eat, walk, drink water, and sleep. I fit a fairly bulky sleeping bag, 1/2 of a thermarest, food for 8 days, an MSR miniworks, an extra set of clothes, and only the absolutely necessary sundries in the pack with little problem. When I was rushing, I ended up strapping things to the top, which isn't a terrible hassle with the single, well reinforced compression strap. Again, I overpacked but, also again, I'm a lightweight nut. Don't buy this if you bring anything "just in case" or "if you get bored". If that's you, go a size up.

I'm on this page right now to buy a second one, just to have it for when my current CDT bites it. 'Nuff said.

The CDT is the latest version of the acclaimed ULA Conduit pack for which you can find many reviews at Backpackinglight.

I have done several thru-hikes, the last being the 2,200+ mile Desert Trail. On that hike I carried the ULA CDT. To me, a good measure of a pack's comfort is how often I am thinking about my pack. For the most part I barely noticed it, a very good sign.

It carried the weight very comfortably. My heaviest load was about 30 lbs total, perhaps a bit more. More commonly I was carrying about 20 lbs. This is a pack for those who pack light. The pack had plenty of room for my load. I carried a closed cell sleeping pad and put it inside the pack against my back which, with the rest of my carried gear, stiffened the pack so that it didn't slump and much of the weight was carried with the waist belt.

The belt pockets were handy for smaller items like lip balm, camera, sun screen, etc. The large rear mesh pocket was nice for carrying larger items that I didn't want to bury in my pack. I frequently used the hand loops to rest my hands and to shift the pack weight forward to "change the carry" from time to time. (The one change I'd make would be to swap the hand loops for more conventional "load lifters" which are handier when hiking poles are being used.) The side pockets worked well for my Gatorade water bottles.

I got the S-Curve shoulder straps which were ergonomic for me. The ability to specify the correct torso length was very helpful.

ULA has lots of good information on choosing one of their packs including how to measure your torso length.
