Frameless Day & Overnight Pack

Designed to be a lighter, smaller version of the company’s CDT pack, the ULA Photon backpack offers just the right amount of space for day hikes and overnights. Constructed from 100-percent Robic fabric, it has a frameless design and weighs 28 ounces. The contoured shoulder straps and hipbelt create a form-fitting feel and allow you to carry up to 18 pounds comfortably. Finally, stretch mesh front and side pockets and two hipbelt pockets provide plenty of storage for small items.

Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of torso size (S–L), hipbelt size (S–L), shoulder strap style (S or J curve), and color (black, green, multicam camo, orange, purple, or red). This drop’s base price is for the roll-top closure with the option to upgrade to the cinch-top closure (+ $15). You can also add the ULA rain cover (+ $30). The rain cover is only available in small, and will fit the ULA Photon, CDT and Fastpacks. Limited to 50 units.

About ULA Equipment

The brainchild of long-distance hiker Brian Frankles, Ultralight Adventure Equipment was founded in 2001 with the goal of providing lightweight, durable, and comfortable gear to a burgeoning community of ultralight hikers. By 2009, adherents of the ultralight ethos, such as Chris and Sally McMaster, found themselves on a 4-month waiting list for Frankles’s homespun gear. That’s when Frankles sold his business—to none other than the McMasters. Today, Ultralight Adventure Equipment sells its wares to dealers around the world, even producing its own ULA 210 Robic fabric. Still, every product is made in-house at the Utah headquarters. Every pack is PCT-ready and ensured for a lifetime by ULA’s warranty.

Optional Rain Cover

At less than 3 ounces, ULA's rain cover is a light add-on for when the weather proves to be unpredictable. Constructed from seamless 1.1-ounce silicone-impregnated ripstop nylon, it packs down small so it can be carried in a hipbelt pocket with room to spare. Velcro and fabric loops make it easier to attach the cover with cold, wet hands, while elastic straps keep the cover secure while you hike.
