Congratulations again to the three lucky winners of an ULTRA pack:

The entire ULTRA line is now available to preorder . The ULTRA 6000 will begin shipping in April and the rest of the packs will be arriving in June.
11-Ounce Carbon Fiber Frame
The ULTRA pack system introduces a new 11-ounce California made Carbon Fiber frame design that is stronger, lighter, stiffer, and narrower ensuring the highest quality and performance. This frame is packed with more carbon to ensure the highest quality and performance.
Fully Adjustable Suspension
At a mere 25 ounces, the redesigned suspension in the ULTRA utilizes a new patent pending T-Lock track system design that securely holds the shoulder straps to the frame and allows for easy adjustment and customizable comfort. The next-to-body material and cleaner design of the suspension make it extremely comfortable. The unique hip belt design moves the frame and pack closer to your back, offering the support necessary to carry demanding loads more efficiently. The new adjustable lumbar pad and pivoting hip-belt creates unrestricted mobility and maximum comfort.
The suspension also now comes in two sizes: the S/M fits waist sizes 28″ to 33″ and the L/XL sizes 33″ to 44″.
ULTRA 1800, ULTRA 3000, and ULTRA 6000 Bags
The ULTRA bag design began with seam construction that maximizes strength and reduces seam weight. The bags weigh, 9, 12, and 21 ounces respectively. The ULTRA 6000 comes with a fully functional 500ci lid with one zipper pocket, top loading with an expandable shroud, and a 21-inch vertical single side entry zipper for quick access to your main pack. The ULTRA 1800 and 3000 have very convenient horseshoe zipper entry. All bags have 2 exterior pockets and one oversized stuff-it pocket, making it easy to organize your gear. The bags are made with 160 Denier Textured Cordura® Rip Stop Fabric that is 4 times PU coated on the inside giving the fabric even more durability and abrasion resistance. The line comes with an expandable load sling for added carrying capacity, making the versatility incomparable to anything else in the industry.
The simple design of the ULTRA packs makes changing bags in this modular system extremely fast and easy.
