Durango, CO (December 15, 2015)ULA Equipment, the Logan, Utah based lightweight backpacking equipment company, recently wrapped up a new series of product videos produced by Gear Cuts.

The videos feature four of ULA’s best selling packs as well as an instructional ‘How to Fit Your ULA Backpack’ video. The goal of the videos was to show off the feature sets that differentiate each pack and to educate ULA’s customers about proper pack fit. Gear Cuts delivered this project ahead of schedule without compromising their high caliber execution.

“Working with Ron at Gear Cuts made this process incredibly simple and straightforward,” said Chris McMaster, ULA’s president. “His extensive product knowledge combined with their streamlined processes cut out much of the back and forth that can make video production such a time consuming headache. Ron really drove the project forward and kept us on schedule.”


“This was a very fun project for me,” said Ron Rod, Founder of Gear Cuts. “My initial interest in the Outdoor Industry was sparked by lightweight backpacking, so getting to work with ULA on this project felt like coming home. When I hiked the Appalachian Trail over a decade ago, I made most of my own gear. That gives me special appreciation for how well made ULA’s products are and special incentive to highlight all of the features that make them stand out from the crowd.”

The ULA Equipment product videos produced by Gear Cuts can be found on the ULA website. ULA anticipates that not only will these videos provide higher quality education for their customers, but will also improve their bottom line by increasing conversion rates on their website.
