In 2008 a small group of trail and ultra runners set out to design and build a new type of pack. A pack that would support runners through one of the hardest and most demanding events in the world, the Marathon Des Sables. From their mission the Ultrabag 20L was born. The Ultrabag 20L was a brand new type of pack, a pack to carry gear for hundreds of miles of running while being lightweight yet able to stand up to the harsh conditions of the desert. Several years later after much testing and many innovative changes WAA Ultra Equipment was born in 2013.
Mission: to make happy and confident trail runners
Since 2013 WAA Ultra Equipment based in Paris, France has pursued their mission to make gear that helps runners run better, longer, and happier.
Innovative Products for All Runners
From its launch WAA Ultra Equipment has continued to expand its product line with new and innovative products. The products have moved beyond providing the best running packs for multiday desert races to giving runners of all distances products they love and value.
Ultra Carrier Shirt
The Ultra Carrier Shirt line (Short Sleeve/ Long Sleeve) introduced an entirely new product to runners with its innovative design allowing runners to leave their pack at home while still being able to carry the gear they need for long runs.
The Ultrabag 20L isn’t just a desert stage race bag anymore. Its line of modular accessories makes it the only running pack that can be used and adapted to the needs of its user. Front bottle pockets, two front pack options, sherpa strap, hidden rain cover, and side pockets all can be removed or added depending on the environment and demands of the event.
