The Porter is our preferred pack for multi-sport adventures. It's best suited for shorter-duration adventures in rivers or snow, where you’re sharing gear with your partner.

This is the perfect pack for the minimalist adventurer. Goes from your shoulder, through the airport X-ray, into the overhead on the plane, back on your back and into the woods for several days. Can be rolled-down enough to take anywhere with no extra pockets, flaps or straps to snag on anything. As a true ultralight hiker, I can get all I need in it for up to 4 days camping with proper choice of wright and compactness of my other gear and still not sacrifice comfort. Also excellent for canoe or rafting trips.

Super excited with my pack. I was a bit worried because I wasn’t able to try one on to see if everything felt good, but the sizing was great. I’ve only used it on one trip so far and it was by far the most comfortable pack I have ever owned. I would highly recommend this product! As an outdoor educator, I would trust this pack on my month long excursion with students.

I am notorious in that no gear lasts more than few seasons. HMG gear is an exception. Very sturdy backpack with lots of opportunities to attach gear outside the pack. Older I get, the more appreciate light weight, and I don’t think it can go any lighter than Porter pack. If you need lightweight with high durability, this is your bag.

I have used this bag in desert conditions (white color is ideal for this) and mountain climbing use with snow shoes on multi day ventures so far with no problems at all. Carries 60 pounds fairly well, only upgrade I see is a strap that connects to the over the top strap to the main shoulder strap. This would pull a heavy bag closer to the top of the shoulders and reduce the tendency for the bag to hang backward slightly. I've still never used or seen any bag like it. Everyone who sees it is interested in it. Great overall use and light weight. I'll use it for for years

I took this pack on a packrafting trip in the Wrangle mountain in Alaska the day after it arrived it the mail. It was the best pack ever. I was able to fit all my packrafting and camping gear for a week trip no problem. It’s comfortable and can hold a ton of gear. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great all around pack!
