GREAT PACK. TRIED AND TRUE.
Did an 8-day, 120-mile trip with this pack. Very happy with it. Very comfortable, easily adjustable, cinches down well, waterproof, accessible water bottles on sides, rides well full or half empty, the front mesh pocket is amazing for storing gear, and I could store all my day gear on the outside of the bag

JUNGLE READY.
I have had a 2400 Southwest down here in the jungles of Southern Costa Rica for several years. It has withstood the harsh humid conditions quite well, but I needed a little more space, so I got the 3400 Windrider. I believe the mesh back pockets will be a little more appropriate for the tropical rains. Hyperlite is Hyper Right!! Pura Vida (Pure Life)


SOUTHWEST SERIES

When the trail gets narrow and contact with the surroundings becomes inevitable, the three Hardline with Dyneema© outer pockets of the Southwest provide a substantial line of defense around the gear inside while also keeping the contents hidden from view–a potential benefit when the trail heads in town.

BAD-ASS & BEAUTIFUL BAG.
Love this thing! So light and robust, with more than enough room for all my gear. Keeps the weather out like a champ & is super comfortable. Also feels super compact & stays out of the way when scrambling / bush-whacking.

INCREDIBLE.
I absolutely adore this bag. Took is on my hiking trip to the Grand Canyon and it performed above expectations. Comfortable, light, sleek, spacious. Outside pockets are my favorite feature with how much stuff they can hold for you to easily access.

Huge fan of HMG and will definitely be a return customer when the time comes to expand my gear.


The Junction gets dressed in a blend of the best attributes of the Windrider and Southwest pockets; Hardline with Dyneema© sides for abrasion resistance, and a mesh center for visibility and ventilation. Its versatility makes it a great choice for hikers travelling through a wide variety of terrain and climate zones.

SIMPLICITY. DURABILITY. UTLITY.
When I first tried on a HMG pack, I was shocked! It was loaded with more weight than I was carrying in my own pack at the time and it just sat so perfectly on my body. So, this is what an ultralight pack should feel like! What a dramatic difference switching packs has made on my thru hike. Simplicity, Durability, Utility. All in a pretty darn good-looking pack. Thanks, y'all!

AMAZING.
After speaking to a number of HMG owners including several thru-hikers, I knew I wanted an HMG pack due to their versatility, durability, and reputation. I was really torn between the Southwest and Windrider models - each seemed like it had potential pros and cons that the other did not possess. I wanted an external place to dry gear as on the Windrider, but was also concerned about the durability and snagging potential of the mesh side pockets on the Southwest. I was so delighted when I saw the Junction (55L) at Trail Days 2019. For me, this is the best of both worlds and I will be using this pack on my thru-hike attempt of the Appalachian Trail in 2020. It has already performed wonderfully on the Art Loeb Trail in NC while hiking up a very overgrown portion of trail with Rhododendron (no snags!). Amazing pack! Thanks HMG!


NORTHRIM SERIES

For routes that may consist of on-again, off-again access to trails, canyoneering, and bushwhacking, The NorthRim ramps up its ability to sustain the abuse presented by challenging terrain with 375-Denier fully-woven Dyneema© Composite Fabric for the outer pockets, hip belt pockets, and bottom of the pack.

TOUGHER THAN THE SOUTHWEST.
I've only gotten a chance to take it out on two trips (both for work in Southern UT) and so far it's held up pretty well to all the scrapy, climby routes, pack lowers/raises, and such with minimal sign of wear. I bought the larger size (4400) because of all the stuff I have to carry for work, but I intend on using it in the Grand Canyon for multi-

AMAZING.
Big enough to fit enough food and gear to work a 30 day course, and light/compact enough to use it as a summit bag while out. Most comfortable and durable bag I've had yet. The front pocket is better than a bag brain, and doesn't get in the way when I don't need it. Would buy this bag 10 more times.
