In ULA’s new 2006 line of backpacks, the Conduit is a frameless top-loading pack with a volume of 3,200 cubic inches and weight of just 22 ounces, just right for a weekend ultralight or lightweight backpacking trip or a day hike carrying bulky gear. It’s made of Dyneema Gridstop fabric which is both lightweight and bomber. In this review I evaluate the many features and attributes of the Conduit, and discuss its sizing and fit.
