Anyone buy a Fastpack 20 in M/L and regret it? If so, I'll take it! :)
Can this be collapsed and stuffed into a hiking bag?
Nicholas_Knives
I have the newer 35, and it would be tough. There's a foam frame that doesn't really collapse, although I do think it's removable. It also weighs in at close to two pounds, which makes it really heavy for a summit pack.
I have used it for weekend trips by itself, when the objective was to go fast and far, and it performs great under those conditions.
Anyone ever use these for backcountry skiing? How tough is the ripstop, tough tough or just fancy outdoor gear fake-tough?

Just in case you're still out there, thinking about this bag after five months, I have used it for backcountry skiing and it's pretty nice. It's not perfect, making avy tools fit, but be accessible took a bit of doing, and I had to seriously compress my 35L bag for day sized loads. That being said, it compresses really well, and the vest suspension means that the bag moves with you really well. If you only want it for backcountry skiing, I might go for a dedicated bag, but this is a lot more versatile, if you don't mind a few small compromises.
Quick question. I was thinking about the 30. Does it have some kind of frame or is this frameless. What is the max pounds for this model. How much does it weigh?

It is frameless without a hipbelt of any sort. The included slide-in foam backpad may provide a little support, but not remotely as much as a rigid frame, and since its hipbeltless the addition of a rigid framesheet wouldn't transfer any weight to your hips anyway. The shoulder straps are unpadded, but fairly wide. I wouldn't try to carry any more than 25 lb total in this pack for an extended time.
That being said, if you're sitting at or around 5 lb baseweight (without food or water) this is a very nice pack. The materials seem very durable and the pack construction is top-notch.

It weighs 700g with the framesheet and 515g without the framesheet. Here's a photo of the front & back of the framesheet.

The new 35 adds a hip belt whereas the 30 doesn't have one. I'd suspect the volume on the 20 and the new 25 would be the same. Not sure about the volume of the 30 vs the 35
i bought the 20 on the previous drop and quite like it. Runnable with 10-12lbs. More than that and the movement is noticeable. It is a really big 20L. I'd say 25. The pack fits my Tarp, down bag, bug bivy, Helium rain Coat monbell ex Lite down. Base top and bottom, neo air xlite large and has room for 5lbs of food.
So if you have a 7lb or so base weight kit it is perfect for weekend trips. I can also fit my BV500 in it.
I don't have experience with the 30 but for me unless you have bulky light gear I don't see the usage case as muh over 15lbs TPW I want some kind of frame.
how much were these when the drop was live?
GeeKeR
It's live now and priced at $75 or $70.
I've done multiple overnight running / fastpack trips with this (UD30) pack, longest was 3 nights with about 17 lbs. I have taken a large tarp for shelter but no tent, pretty much just pad, bag and food but love the pack, very comfortable. I almost bought another one here just because of price!
On the drop. But wanted to know if anyone can comment whether this would comfortable for someone 6'3", 180lbs, size 42 L in jacket. chest is 42". Anyone got an accurate measure on the the length of the pack body from base of shoulder strap to bottom of pack?
any chance the 20 comes in blue? i like the color of the 30 but want 20.
sevenero
No the colors are set, not interchangeable
@PeterK What shipping company does this use to ship to Canada
@MikeHike Per the UD website, it looks like you run M/L: M/L: 32" - 46" / 81 cm - 112 cm
Question about fit. My chest is right at 40" and I am 5'9". Which size?
MikeHike
L is roomy on me, and Im about the same size as you. I can cinch it almost all the way down and its tight. Id recommend the Large.
I joined this drop and now it IS NOT LISTED IN MY ACCOUNT. I have been charged. What gives
Anyone have an idea Thanks
Anyone know the full volume breakdown of the 20L. The outdoor gear lab review of the 30L does a better job describing it then UD does.

ChEco out the irunfar review of the 20. It's not a detailed breakdown but some good subjective comments

Really hoping 3/14 is a typo. Wouldn't have joined if I'd known it was going to take that long to ship...

Meh. Salomon S-Lab Peak is where its at. Same size volume, better harness system, front pockets for water, barely 400g, more breathable mesh, and cinching system.
Price of this deal is excellent though. Won't find the S-lab for that price.
Telios
I looked at the S-Lab a while ago and really wanted to get it - but I just could not bring myself to spend $225 on it. FWIW, I used the UD FP20 for FC R2R with camping gear in it and it was great for running and hiking.
ryancdenner
Yeah the price jump is significant and I seriously debated its worth from the moment I saw it at the outdoor trade show.
However, the S-lab range is amazing, it's one of the few 'premium' lines from all the outdoor brands that is absolutely worth the price.
I've never bought an s-lab piece and then regretted it. Whatever research went into designing their breathable/flexible mesh stuff makes it worth it.
It's probably because the S-lab gear is actually designed with huge involvement from athletes. Not some marketing team or product designer without a clue, but the actual people using it.
The fact that I can run for hours with it on and not have an marks or discomfort is a wonder to me.
Review: http://www.outdoorgearlab.com/Ultralight-Backpack-Reviews/Ultimate-Direction-Fastpack-30
As the review points out, "... this pack is the only one we tested that is quite comfortable when running." So if you're into long (way long) or multi-day runs, this might be the pack for you.
