Familiarity: I've used it several times

I recently returned to REI my Gregory Baltoro pack. Nothing against the Baltoro, its a stellar piece. However after carrying it several times in the BC it really started to feel like a monster on my back. And the bigger the pack, inevitably the more crap you seem to find you absolutely need to bring with you. This started me down the road a lightweight packing. I tried several of the lightweight packs that are out there. When I finally settled on the HMG Southwest I found a used 2400. What I found was the 3400 will become the 2400 if you just roll it down. Great design.... When I finally got it loaded up with all my gear I would need for a 4 day trek, I took it for a little walk around hilly So Cal. Let™s just say, amazeballs. Feels like there is way less weight on my shoulders. Carries to my hip belt the way I thought a pack should. Without tons of extra straps and pockets and lids and whatever else you don't really need the Southwest is truly the backpackers dream machine. I'd be letting you down if I didn't also talk a little about their stuff sacks and PODS. By far the best again. The PODS make such great use of the space within there is zero dead spots. Another great idea. Buy this pack. You will not be disappointed.

So light.....So nice

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I took this on a 5 day hike on the JMT in September. Was so light and easy to use I have decided it will remain my go-to shelter.
While I know it excels in the snow it was equally at home on cool (40*) evenings on the trail.
No issues with condensation...was able to vent it with the door.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

This jacket is the perfect ski shell. And the perfect rain shell.

Another reviewer said it doesn't work well with a pack for access to the pockets....I could not DISAGREE more. They are in the perfect location. I looked long and hard for the one jacket to replace them all. And I have found it.

I promise this piece will not let you down.
