Hill People Gear – Connor Pocket / Pocket

Monday, March 21st, 2016

The Connor is the successor to HPG’s discontinued Highlander Pack. Although the Connor was designed as an add on pocket (their largest compression pocket, suitable for use on the Ute and larger packs), it can also be used as a stand alone pack when used with a harness.

-Large main dimensional pocket fully lined with First Spear’s 6/12 PALS cut velcro loop fabric lets you create whatever organizational system you want.
-Center zip outer pocket with stretchy tweave fabric on the outside expands as you stuff it.
-Twin outer mesh pockets on either side of the center zip. Meant for drying your socks on the trail. Sized to take a bike bottle size bottle.
-Hypalon compression wings can be folded underneath for use on the Ute pack or brought around to the front when the Connor is used stand alone. The wings have a 2 channel pals grid cut into them for additional pouches either inside or outside of the wings.
-Dual mini-wand pockets are just big enough to accept bike bottle sized bottle, but excel for smaller items like trekking or fishing poles.
-Generously long bottom compression straps.
-Stay pocket is accessible from the suspension side. Can be used to store other flat items if desired.
-Harness mounting points are midway up the back to allow for a wide range of torso lengths.
-Includes (2) ITW repair ladderloc buckles. In pack mode, they are used for the load lifters. In pocket mode, they can be used on the very bottom tabs to tie into the bottom most compression straps on the Ute pack.

In response to customers looking for a PALS backed harness for their Kit Bag, Hill People Gear came up with this prototype. If they decide to place it into production, it will be an add-on item and not a substitution at time of purchase.

HPG Wind Cheater – Proof of Life

Saturday, August 8th, 2015

If you get the Hill People Gear newsletter, you already know this.  If you don’t, we hope you are stoked about this news as we are.    
“No, we don’t have a price. No, we don’t have a timeline on production. But we do have a correct production sample and that’s something. So consider this a teaser of good things to come. This is the First Spear Windcheater with sleeve pockets removed and the awesome HPG “Cargo Napolean / Handwarmer” pocket setup added. The hood is also plumbed to accept an optional zip on coyote fur ruff. If you’re interested in updates on this product, email [email protected].”
