ULA Photon Ultralight backpack - is the little brother of the CDT, ULA most basic backpack. With nearly 35 liters of available space, 15 liters smaller than the CDT, it is suitable for dayhikes, and any distance backcountry forays. This is one of 2 frameless packs which ULA make and it is ideal for travel or lightweight hiking. Maximum comfortable load in this pack is under 8kg, no matter what anyone claims no frameless pack is comfortable over this weight and we are no exception. The current Photon continues the tradition of being a reliable, lightweight, and durable backcountry companion.
The Photon comes standard with a Roll Top closure, stretch mesh front and side pockets, and shock cord over the front mesh pocket.
Contoured shoulder straps and a great hipbelt result in a comfortable carry, while (5) external pockets aid in easily accessed on-trail organization.
Bottom Line? A comfortable, durable, highly functional ruck. For Photon belt size use your actual waist measurement.
