    Default ULA Circuit X Reviews

    Iím interesting in reviews of the new Circuit X that ULA is now selling for $349. They use various types/weights of xpak materials. Since the packs are pretty new, I am going to wait to read some reviews before deciding whether to buy one to replace my tried and true 2013 Circuit which is still in great shape. $349 so itís quite expensive. The main attraction is waterproofness. The weight doesnít seem to be much different.

    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.

    I’m sure they are great packs since the cut and fit is the same as the regular circuit which has been great for me. But $349 is a pricey upgrade!

    Hi, I'm Peter with ULA and would be happy to answer any questions regarding the Circuit X. Yes, it is indeed a pricey upgrade, but the seams are hot air taped-not just seam sealed. In simpler terms, we are using a specialized machine with specific tape that bonds the tape to the X-Pac for a permanent seal. Hopefully that helps!

    I just received mine although I haven't had it on trail yet but I have the regular version which I love. There is a snap closure now which I like. The construction is rock solid.

    Just picked up a new Circuit for one of my kids, mine is 2007ish and starting to wear. Nice to see a new option to consider, I've never been a fan of pack covers.
