rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, super tough. The Hyperlite Mountain Gear Porter meets all my needs in a backpack. It is very light, the material and stitching are first rate. It handles winter loads well. The strength of the fabric was tested during a trip to the Ventana Wilderness where we spent two days scrambling through some nearly impassable brush. No holes in the fabric and after a quick wash it looked like new. A forty+ pound winter load (mid tarp tent, -20 degree bag, five days food and fuel) was easily swallowed… Full review

UltaMid 2-Person

rated 4 of 5 stars The HMG UltaMid 2 is a four-season, floor-less tent designed for the weight conscious adventurer seeking more coverage than a flat tarp without the weight of a full tent.

Echo II Tarp

rated 5 of 5 stars Great piece of gear. Held strong in 30mph winds near hurricane pass in the Tetons. Takes a bit of practice to pitch but is very versatile in its setup options. Completely waterproof, will not "wet out" like silnylon. Reinforced tension points, quality construction. Couldn't be happier. Buy it. Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Really fantastic pack. My go-to for weekend to week-long trips! I searched a long time to find a¬†lightweight¬†pack that could carry up to 40 lbs comfortably, that was actually long enough to fit my 21.5 inch torso. The Porter is the perfect pack for 90% of my trips, and I love the streamlined design and modular style of this pack. For longer trips I add a front pocket, and for winter trips an insulated bottle pocket easily straps to the side. If the trip is short or I want to do some peak bagging,… Full review

Windrider 3400

rated 5 of 5 stars In planning for our trip to the West Coast Trail, we were wanting to try to be ultra light in a packing. After much research I settled on the Hyperlite product. After a phone call with Mike and talking over how I was going to use the pack he said they could do a Windrider 3400cu. At the time this was not on their website. It is a Porter with all the extras of the Windrider. My first trip trying to be ultra light wasn't too bad. We planned to be on trail for 6 days. I"m 6'1" and at the time weighed… Full review
