Close out on last years model from ULA Equip. website: $219.00 with free shipping ! What gives massdrop? Is this the new model or last years?
CodyPendant
EVERY SINGLE ONE of the closeout models in the "Deals" section of the ULA website are made with the now discontinued woodland camo cordura material. There's no woodland camo available from this drop at all.
CDT drop, please.
Hogie
100% yes please, but with the $22 dollar international shipping option ULA have on their website, not the $65 one.
ULA Equipment Catalyst list price = $260.00 MASSDROP sale price..............................219.99 MASSDROP shipping charge....................40.00 Cost to me....................................................$259.99 Hmmm.......

Am I safe to assume you live in Canada? On the contrary, if you were to order directly from ULA , your actual cost would be more than the stated $260 on the website. You would be paying extra, on top of the $260. That price is valid for free ship to USA customers only.
Long time between drops (2yrs?), but it's back! $220 - Let's do some price comparisons.
p.s. I have this pack and its worth every penny. Swallows a lot of gear and will carry some weight well, but need to watch that, of course. I use it for bulky winter gear that is sufficiently light. Never over 30 lbs and a carries that like cloud. Also does well with a smaller load. I have a CDT frameless for truly small and light, and use the Catalyst for everything else.
Complaint... I don't like that MD allows some makers to use them as outlets, rather than for true drops. In this case, ULA is having a sale for the exact same price, and the timing of the sale and drop indicate that MD is just being used as would any ULA retailer. I'd rather see ULA have the sale, then drop remaining product below the sale price if they still have some to sell. And I'd rather MD be on top of that sort of thing, to ensure drops are actually drops.

Massdrop is an outlet. Period. It's a place for a manufacturer/business to drop prices and get off a bunch of product quick using Massdrop as the middle-man to do so. That's basically the very definition of the "outlet". And, I see no sale on the ULA website at all.

You’re right, my bad
..i'll bet it'll be dropped in the dead of night with a pathetic limit just to piss off everyone who were waiting so long for it.
ULA must at least be partly to blame for the Circuit debacle so i'll go Zpacks. Haven't been introduced to the wonderful world of ULA yet but seems i've dodged the proverbial bullet so looks like i never will.
How likely will the catalyst be offered again anytime soon?
This drop was just the wrong time for me as I did not have the cash for this back pack but I really do want to get this pack. How soon will it be possible to have this pack in a drop again?
Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.

To anyone considering buying this in multicam, be aware that it is only the areas that are green on the stock versions that will be in multicam the rest of the backpack is still black.

I think this this should be highlighted better on the drop page. I would assume that most people who consider buying this backpack in multicam actually wants a bag that is camouflaged, and not just a black bag with a bitof tacticool paint added to the sides.
ThorMIs
Well, legit complaint if MD didn't have a pic of one when you ordered - which they have sometimes been bad about - but I'd sure have googled "multicam catalyst" for an image before buying, or better, go to the ULA website. I would think most people who want a truly camoflaged bag would do so to ensure what they're getting. By the way, I have this exact bag. Not sure what you meant by a bit of tacticool paint? Half the bag is multicam and the multicam material is a little more substantial than the normal robric, and so slightly heavier. Definitely tacticool! FYI - you can now custom order a Catalyst and replace the normally black panels with any color you want... for more than a few $$, and not likely to find that at a discount.
I have one of these. It replaced my Osprey Aether 70. I would agree with a couple folks in saying it's not ULTRA light gear, but it's certainly a very light weight for the volume it is. It carries nicely. I've had roughly 30 lbs in this and the weight just disappeared once I got every thing snugged up . Excellent pack and this price is a very good deal. If you're an ultra light hiker doing long trails, I'd say this pack would still qualify as an ultra light pack given the amount of supplies you could carry for a week or more long trip. If you do shorter trips, look at a smaller pack like the OHM 2.0. For me, this pack a great blend of light weight and pack mule volume.

Much appreciated and informative response! I switched to hammocks about 18 months ago and have been fine with my 35/50 liter Kelty for 3 season but I enjoy winter camping quite a bit. My sub freezing kit is a bit bulky (down so not heavy) and I plan to take an extended trip in late summer where I could use just a tad more volume. I'm not an ultralight guy by any means but I do try to strip weight where I can.
ElectronicVices
Same here. Not an ultra lighter but shave weight where I can. With the catalyst I shave almost 2 lbs in pack weight alone. My winter kit is a hammock gear set of 0 degree quilts. Light but bulky. A dream hammock sparrow hammock. I can get all of it in the catalyst with plenty of room for other essentials.
This is awesome. Been wanting this pack for awhile.
Ultralight pack != 2.875 pounds
A 75L backpack is not ultralight gear. Please provide gear in the range of capabilities that meets the ultralight community's needs.

As much as 3lbs is heavy for a backpack everything has it's place. You'll be hard pressed to find a backpack of this size or quality and this low a weight without spending out the ass for cuben. Even though ultralight is 10lbs in the dictionary its more a mindset for packing. Even for people who are truly ultralight this pack provides a great option to hose looking to do winter camping and other trips that require more storage than a 50-60L can handle.

Exactly , Winter exists and this idea that we must fit exact rules and not be flexible is dumb. Nobody would continue on a dangerous trail just because it is the trail and nobody should pick gear strictly based on weight or dimensions.
It might not fit the "dictionary" definition of Ultralight and Massdrop might be better off marketing this section as backpacking. However let's at least be open to the idea that some gear while not good for our needs might fit others needs and not just dismiss it.
This is an excellent pack for its price point especially for those needing to carry extra clothing, insulation & safety gear for winter or cold shoulder season backpacking.
This is the pack I've had my eye on for a while now, but just haven't committed yet. When I saw it come up I got excited. However after going to the ULA website I'd only save about $9.00 over ordering it directly from them. ULA does not charge for shipping or tax. So it's $260 shipped directly me.

Not for the Catalyst. It is listed right on the ULA website. Free Shipping for the Catalyst.
Drat. I just bought mine at full price. Of course, mine is prettier. Yeah. That's it. Right.
So, a $21 (8%) savings for a 3.5 weeks delay on shipping? Meh...
Is this pack, the 75L exclusive to massdrop, or is it being offered by ULA. Sort of like the klymit pads. I ask so if I don't catch this sale, I can get it from the company.
vvarriale66
This is the exact same pack you'd get from ULA.
DannyMilks
Thanks Danny, It has been a while since I have been to ULA site. I remember seeing the regular one but not the 75L. Thank you for the quick reply
So excited to see this pack return to Massdrop :)
What size cannister would hold a bear?

This bag supposedly will hold a full size bearikade. So pretty-much any can you throw at it should work.

As long as the drop is still live, you should be able to modify your order by going to the top right of this page, clicking the down arrow next to your avatar, and going to your Transactions page. @bodonnell
Looked at the shipping and had to look at it again. $148.82 to AU. Well played.
Actually the deal is only 5% because ULA will ship to you for free. Bought this time, but probably won't in the future.

Check the description, lifetime warranty is included, bud.

Manufacturers defect only! For Massdrop purchases, no returns or exchanges. Already been through this. When dealing directly with ULA & making your purchase from their website, returns/exchanges allowed for any reason. Not so from Massdrop.
Well an 11.5% discount is better than no discount. No complaints here!
Finally.....
$70 shipping to Canada plus our dying currency...think I'll wait till an osprey comes on sale locally. :/
