I have always looked forward to seeing what Hill People Gear (HPG) will come up with next ever since I got my old Kit Bag. The Londolozi Pack is one of their latest creations and it will be available soon.
The Londolozi Pack occupies the space between the compact Tarahumara Pack and the larger Ute Pack. This top loader is sized (19″x11″x6.5″ and 2000 ci) to handle day trips or even multi-day warm weather trips if you pack lightly. It comes with the new version of the HPG Shoulder Harness that is being phased into all the HPG packs and is also compatible with the Prairie Belt if you need to transfer a heavier load to your hips. The plastic frame sheet and single aluminum stay are removable and the back panel is padded. The compression system works to steady your payload and also allows the user to dock a Palspocket, Tarapocket, or Tarahumara pack. There are additional organization features like several compression straps that can be used for lashing gear, dual wand pockets, an internal slot pocket, internal hang tabs, and a para-cord tool loop.
