    My 2 cents:
    - Section hike: anything > 1 night on AT
    - LASH: section hike long enough to require a resupply

    Itís not cheap but the price is comparable to other xpac packs like the SWD Long Haul. ULA also comes seam sealed which is a plus. Iíd venture to bet that theyíre great packs.
