The lightest Mountain Hunting pack system available
The ULTRA pack system is a brilliantly simple modular pack concept incorporating an advanced suspension, bag, and our patented Carbon Fiber frame. The focus of all ULTRA packs is minimizing weight while optimizing performance and functionality. The foundation of the pack system is an 11 oz., California-made Spread Tow Carbon Fiber frame that is strong and light, but still flexible, ensuring performance and comfort both at normal trail weights and when packing meat.
The ULTRA 3000 has the extra capacity to carry large optics or cold weather gear for later season day hunts. For the minimalist hunter, this is the perfect pack for 2-3 day bivy style hunts. With a main compartment full horseshoe zip, two front zippered pockets, one stuff-it pocket, and 2 zippered hip belt pouches (sold separately), the ULTRA 3000 still provides plenty of options for organizing your gear while weighing in at a remarkable full kit weight of 3 lbs 7.1 oz. The pack bag can compress tightly to the frame when unloaded.
The extremely light weight of the ULTRA modular system makes it practical to now carry an extra day hunt bag into the backcountry. When you reach camp simply remove the ULTRA or ICON PRO high capacity pack bag from your suspension and add a smaller ULTRA 1800 or 3000 for day hunts from camp. With the load sling capacity between the bag and frame, the smaller ULTRA bags are still capable of carrying 80+ pounds of meat back to camp in addition to your day hunting gear.
The KUIU Carbon Fiber frame and suspension is the foundation of our modular pack system, and can fit any of the ICON Pro or ULTRA pack bags. KUIU packs are made with materials chosen for performance, not price, including Toray Spread Tow Carbon Fiber, CORDURA® Nylon fabric, YKK® Zippers, and Duraflex® hardware.
The 2017 models are compatible with all previous Icon Pro or ULTRA pack systems. For 2017 bags being paired with an older suspension set you will need the 2017 Adapter Buckle Kit #1. If you purchase a new 2017 frame and suspension and want to pair an older style bag you'll need 2017 Adapter Buckle Kit #2. These buckle kits will add a few minutes to the process of swapping out bags but are fully functional. We will provide these free of charge as needed. Please call customer service at (855) 367-5848.
