Most of the stuff he's been carrying lately, to my understanding, is all stuff he's testing for a potential roll-out in the future. Everything from the new Cocoon insulating gear, to his pack, and even a tent. The orange one is his ULA Artic Dry pack which he carried on the Artic 1000 trip.

The dark blue/black pack he carried in previous videos is apparently nearly ready for production with only minor cosmetic changes forthcoming. It is roughly 28 ounces and 40L-45L in capacity. It will come with shoulder straps and a hip belt which are modular to fit different body types. It comes with a removable frame, roll top closure, two big outside pockets, and hipbelt pockets.

The pack in the video posted on Ryan's site today is the BPL Arctic Dry pack co-developed with ULA. It is no longer available but you might be able to pick one up used on the Gear Swap forum.

You guys are right regarding the pack... ULA Arctic. I hadn't seen his latest 24 episode (which by the way I love them!). In the prior episode "Garnet Mt" he was using his newer BPL prototype pack.

The tent used in his latest 24 hour video looks a lot like a Roger Caffin' shelter like these http://www.bushwalking.org.au/FAQ/DIY_RNCSummer.htm

The tent is indeed a Caffin built specifically for Ryan to use on ultralight winter trips.
