Previous versions of the Circuit have offered exceptional load carrying capabilities and on-trail function...a beautiful balance between comfort load support and weight. The `11 Circuit brings all of the features you love and an added level of durability.

The Circuit pack now includes a Cordura bottom panel to prevent punctures and 210 ripstop side pockets to prevent snagging.

It still utilizes a 1.2 oz carbon fiber and delrin suspension hoop in conjunction with a dense internal foam frame to give excellent backpanel support and maximum load control load transfer and pack rigidity without limiting your range of movement. All this and the 2011 Circuit actually weighs a little less!

ULA packs are mid range in terms of weight but thats because they've paid attention to durability and have produced a range of tough packs with very practical features designed by backpackers. The Circuit has an internal frame (removable) which enables it to transfer weight to the hips more effectively than a frameless pack - this means it will carry heavier loads.

Its capacity is 68 Litres but bear in mind thats when you add up all the various pockets and compartments - the main compartment is only 39 Litres so it may not compare well to that other 70 Litre pack you have in the loft - having said that - you will probably be fixated with weight reduction if you are looking at this pack and therefore 68Litres is probably ample for most trips.

Nice features? Checkout the large front mesh pocket - ideal for a wet tent, large side pockets which don't require you to be a contortionist to use - and practical square hipbelt pockets.

Sakari Honkanen likes the pack a lot and has also commented: For air travel a nice detail is that the pack’s dimensions are cabin bag compatible when the carbon fiber suspension & hoop are removed.

Fantastic. Wouldn't dream of trading this for another pack

I bought this to thru hike the PCT - I risked just buying it without trying it on, and I shouldn't have worried. Super comfortable, easy to adjust, loads of space inside and the roll top means you actually can have a compact bag even if you aren't carrying much inside.

The mesh on the front can hold a lot - putting a small tent, groundsheet and a few small items in there is no problem.

The side pockets are big and accessible. You can easily put two 1L bottles in each pocket, and also reach back to access them while walking.

The hip belt pockets are big enough to be useful - You can fit a big smartphone, small camera and a couple of snacks in each pocket, or just load them up with plenty of chocolate bars for the day.

The shoulder straps are comfortable and the adjustable load lifters work very well.

The only downside of the pack (which is the same with most lightweight/ultralight packs) is that in hot climates your back doesn't get ventilation. I only really found this an issue in 35 degree celcius plus weather, and the rest of the time didn't really notice the lack of ventilation.

After 2650 miles, this still is in fantastic condition, with nothing needing to be replaced or even looking worn. The only issue I had was squirrels chewing through a but of the mesh to get at my bag of peanuts I had in the front pocket.

There is a reason that the majority of PCT hikers have ULA packs - they work well, are built to last and are extremely comfortable. The other main packs used on trail were Osprey Atmos, and Zpacks, with a few Gossamer Gear and HMG, and a handful of Granite Gear and Exped packs. The only one of those alternatives I would consider would be the Gossamer Gear, but even then I think this ULA pack would win just because of how well built and strong it is - quite amazing really considering its weight!
