Hill People Gear – Junction Pack

Hill People Gear is known for their solid packs built for demanding backcountry users. The new Junction pack departs from this formula a bit. It is named for Grand Junction Colorado where HPG’s retail store stands on historic Main Street. Grand Junction is a crossroads for adventurers and plenty of seasoned travelers stop at the store on their way through town. But it’s also a crossroads for tourists who simply want to day hike the local trails. The Junction Pack is built to meet the needs of these folks.

At 1350ci / 22L, it’s just large enough to carry trail essentials plus the puffy jacket that you should have with you year around in Colorado. Unlike all of the other HPG packs, it has only a minimal compression system consisting of a paracord lace on the back. The lace system can be used to capture small items and also add tension to the oversized angle cut wand pockets. A zippered top pocket is large enough for keys and a cell phone. The single main compartment is accessed through a single top zipper. On the suspension side, there is a zippered water bladder pocket that can also be used to carry just about any 13” display laptop. The pack’s suspension is the same as the smaller Tarahumara backpack — Hill People Gear’s signature yoke style harness and quilted padded back. A pocket frame sheet can optionally be added for increased structure.

Like all Hill People Gear packs, the Junction is designed and tested in the Rocky Mountains and built in the USA by First Spear.

    It falls between two chairs for me, but I am sure that between those chairs there is a far larger customer base.
