Apparently REI has been selling gear long enough to know a thing or two about making it. The REI Quick UL 45 Pack is simply a well designed pack for the ultra light backpacker or weekend trips. Light weight material and a well designed harness system are just a few of the features that make the REI Quick UL 45 Pack shine.

I was looking at this pack there other in the store. Im always curious to see how well made REI brand gear is. This pack is impressively well made, but the real shocker came at the price. The REI Quick UL 45 Pack is only $99. For such a great bag, that’s an awesome deal.

The harness system on the REI Quick UL 45 Pack has a number of good features. The shoulder straps are anatomically cut, as is the hipbelt. This helps create comfort and support. The molded foam lumbar pad and Delrin rod hip belt construction help to redirect the packs weight onto the hips and distribute it evenly.
All the staples of a good pack are here. The REI Quick UL 45 Pack has an inner sleeve for your bladder, hip belt pockets, outer water bottle pockets, waterproof zippers, map pocket, and much more.
