Pods

rated 5 of 5 stars Want to have the best organized pack, ability to unpack fast, pack fast in any weather condition, then these pods are for you. Organization is so good that I only have four items in my bag. Crazy eh? Ease of Use: After time, you will figure out what works in each pod.  For my large pod, I have my pillow, liner, bag, pad, sleeping clothes and spare clothes. The smaller pod holds all my other loose gear, but I also have my spare socks and fleece in this pod. Features: Waterproof material with tapered… Full review

2400 Southwest

rated 5 of 5 stars This pack is beautiful simplicity. It is unbelievably light, comfortable, and durable. I used this pack for a 21-day JMT north to south. I carried the first 11 days food for the trip! No issue with over load. I love this pack. I formerly used an old Kelty Slickrock internal behemoth. What an upgrade! I would recommend this pack for weight conscious individuals. After the trip my ACL looks brand new. Even with a bear canister I was perfectly comfortable.   Full review

2400 Southwest

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The 2400 Southwest internal frame, DCF backpack is a minimalist’s dream. It holds just enough for an overnight or for a multi-month journey, it just depends on the user. It also seems up for the challenge of lasting through multiple long thru-hikes. I considered a long list of packs for my thru-hikes and this one came out on top, for good reason. Conditions of Testing: I bought this pack in September of 2017. While owning it for less than a year, I have put over 2,000 miles on it so far. I used… Full review

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
