3400 Southwest

rated 5 of 5 stars Ultralight, tough, surprisingly comfortable and versatile pack. A real winner. I've always had pretty high-tech backpacks. My original internal frame backpack was an Osprey Zenith, loaded with bells and whistles. From that 7 lb behemoth which served me well, I eventually ended up with an Osprey Aether (the original model), which at about 4 lbs, served me well on a thru-hike of the JMT. I thought I was doing pretty well getting my pack weight down to about 34 lbs for a six-day trip. I realized there… Full review

Dyneema Summit Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars The Hyperlite Mountain Gear Dyneema Summit pack is probably the simplest, most indestructible, lightweight pack I've ever owned. It's withstood many summits in the Eastern Sierras, slot canyons in southern Utah, peak bagging in the White Mountains in New Hampshire, and even some minimalist two-day trips into the mountains. The design is very black and white. Pack most of your stuff in the single roll-top closure compartment, and clip anything else you might need to the outside. Like everything else… Full review

Dyneema 2400 Ice Pack

rated 4 of 5 stars The Hyperlite Mountain Gear (HMG) Ice Pack Dyneema is a 40L pack designed specifically with ice climbers in mind. Made light without sacrificing durability, the woven Dyneema exterior laminated to the Cuben Fiber provides the perfect balance of weight to strength. Whether loaded up with 40 lbs of climbing gear or compressed down to hold just your puffy and water bottle, the Ice pack excels. The pack is best for alpine day climbing, ultralight overnight trips, or winter hut-to-hut hiking. The highlights… Full review

3400 Windrider

rated 5 of 5 stars The HMG Windrider is a lightweight, super comfortable, and durable pack, that is adaptable for a wide range of adventures. The most comfortable pack I have owned! Me and my wife both bought a matching pair of HMG Windrider 3400 packs for our expedition to walk across Iceland. Having learnt a lot more about packs and ultralight gear during our 2012 PCT thru-hike, I had wittled our replacement packs down to a few brands. The HMG packs stood out as being the right balance of weight, waterproof-ness,… Full review

3400 Porter

rated 5 of 5 stars As the editor of an outdoor website covering the outdoor sports of Central Washington, I own a lot of packs, big and small. Of all of them, this is currently my favorite. This has become my go-to pack for gear-intensive day tripping (e.g., backcountry skiing, rock climbing) as well as for lightweight multi-day trips. It’s not the very lightest pack of its capacity out there (my pack weighs 2 pounds, 1 ounce) but is the lightest pack of its capacity that has reinforced sides and bottoms for contenting… Full review
