The Ultra 20 is a versatile running pack designed for medium loads. If you're not a minimalist by nature or like to pack extras for single day outings this bag will take you a long way. It has a load of different features including hard attachment points that offer broad use and adaptability options.
The Ultra Packs are smaller packs for everyday training and racing. Using the lessons we learned from making Mountain Marathon specific packs and applied our knowledge of running specific geometry and stability for daily use.
OMM's Ultra 20 is another upgrade in size for the Ultra line. This pack suits the ultra runner perfectly but is so versatile that walkers, hikers and outdoor enthusiasts in general are able to use it. With a decent level of padding in the adjustable shoulder and hit straps it is comfortable for extended use. The 20L make this a much more versatile pack while the use of durable fabrics on areas likely to see more wear-and-tear are another improvement.
For the trail and ultra runner there are two external stretch pockets and one large zip pocket on and around the hip belt. There is one large storage area with a foam map/padding that can quickly and easily be taken out to reduce the overall weight and bulk. There is also a decent sized top pocket with key clip too. This bag suits an unsupported ultra distance as it has the volume to deal with it, it's really comfortable even over the 6 hour mark and it has a number of practical features to make it more accessible on the run.
