UltaMid 2

rated 5 of 5 stars Ultralite secure shelter. I've long been a fan of floorless single wall shelters. To me the advantages of space per weight, dry pitch, flexibility of just how much to bring along, tracking dirt in onto...the ground, more than offset the disadvantages of fussier pitch, condensation control, and BYO bug protection. I've been a fan of pyramid tents since I first got a Chouinard MegaMid. The Ultamids from HMG are what the MegaMid wanted to be. The UM 2 is a pretty easy pitch since it has a rectangular… Full review

4400 Windrider

rated 5 of 5 stars Light, rugged, and comfortable. The Hyperlite Mountain Gear packs all reflect the stated HMG design philosophy: "Everything you need, nothing you don't." They are examples of what Colin Fletcher called a "Bloody Great Sack." Just one big interior space with no dividers. The 4400's are the greatest of the bloody great sacks. The only interior features are a mesh pocket behind the back panel, I suppose for a hydration bladder, and a small web loop at the top of same where you could clip a car key… Full review

Dyneema Summit Pack

rated 4 of 5 stars No way this deserves 5 stars! The fabric is fantastic and the design works for me since I was not looking for anything complicated.  Top closure ensures it will resist a storm but seam tape around shoulder strap stitching is already failing after a single light use. At this price I can’t see how this can be justified. Also, I got mine and it is missing the compression cords, which for me indicates sloppy QA prior to sending it. The seam sealing is the same thing. Fix these issues and it's a winning… Full review

Summit Pack

rated 2.5 of 5 stars I wanted a small light daypack and this one had the benefit of being watertight (until it ripped). I've been using this small day backpack about once a week for 1.5 to 2 years, mostly lightly packed with a few items for work etc. I purchased this pack because of the cuben fiber material which is a lightweight material with the added benefit of being watertight. This pack is made of cuben fiber laminated with a thin layer of woven nylon fabric which makes it as heavy as many of the daypacks on the… Full review

2400 Windrider

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Bombproof, rugged, good-looking, and carries weight like a champ. I'm a chick, I have a short torso, and I tend to complain a lot about my gear. But not much to complain about with this pack.   This pack is well designed and engineered. It carries like a dream and makes micro adjustments on the fly easy breezy. The design is simple, which i like. I hated all the bells, whistles, and generally over design of my old Osprey pack. The 2400 has plenty of room for a three-day trip even if I'm carrying… Full review
