    Default ULA Catalyst

    I am looking at the ULA that they have on sale for a $160 bucks. It is for short torsos and that would be me.
    Does anyone have any pros or cons on this pack and also, is there any reason that I should not go with a pack that is specifically made for short torsos? I am only 5'3

    All depends on the size of your torso. How long are you?

    Agreed. My Catalyst is my favorite pack ever!

    Don't need all the room in the warmer months. A Circuit would be great for warmer months when I don't carry so much hammock insulation.

    I really like my Catallyst, but it is giant. I've read that an easy way to measure your torso is to measure from your chin to navel. Use at your own risk. ULA makes great packs though.

    Alpine up at Mountain X-ing said that the short Catalysts didn't fit most women very well. I don't remember his exact reason.
