In 2001 Ultralight Adventure Equipment (ULA) was started by Pacific Crest Trail hiker Brian Frankle, who saw a need for durable yet light weight backpacking equipment. Nine years later nearly half the hikers completing this arduous 2650 mile trail are carrying a ULA pack. Our reputation for quality,innovation and customer service have given us a worldwide reputation that is second to none.
ULA is one of the few remaining U.S. based backpack companies who manufacture in house.
Our factory in Logan Utah enables us to be extremely responsive to our customers ever changing needs.
It allows us to adapt new technologies and materials in weeks rather than months, and also allows ULA to offer a level of customer service that is simply unmatched.
Our packs have won awards from Backpacker magazine, The Great Outdoors, and Mens Journal.
Our newly launched EPIC has received an award for innovation from Geographical magazine and was carried on the National Geographic sponsored circumnavigation of Alaska recently completed by Andrew Skurka.
If you are hiking 2 miles or 2000 miles ULA makes the packs that will make all your adventures more enjoyable.
