Hill People Gear offers some truly unique designs.Designs that I haven’t seen before. Their line up is, as they say “just complex enough to solve the problem, but no more”. We recently had a chance to field test one of their day packs. The pack we reviewed is known as the Tarahumara ($120). It’s a prime example of HPG’s uncomplicated ideology.

The Tarahumara name is derived from a famous runner tribe in Mexico. It’s essentially a small day pack that can be mounted to larger pack for versatility (examples on HPG website).  Their gear is used by Soldier’s, Hunter’s, and Outdoor Adventurers, to name a few. With the ability to be used in a wide variety of terrains and conditions. The pack is simple yet functional and I’ll go over the details below.

The Tarahumara measures 17h x 9w x 4d with around 750cu of storage capacity. It is constructed of 500d Codura- making it extremely tough. There are a few color options to choose from: Coyote, Foliage green, and Ranger green. A perfect color selection for hunting and tactical applications.

A problem I often run into with small day packs is the shoulder strap system. They usually don’t fit well due to small shoulder straps and box shaped pack designs.
