Custom gear maker, Penogear, recently showed off a prototype Beaver Tail Pouch for the Hill People Gear Tarahumara Pack. The pouch adds some internal storage volume via a large compartment with zippered openings on both sides. It also adds “beaver tail” functionality so that compressible items like rain shells may be secured between the pack and the Beaver Tail Pouch.
When you don’t need the pouch, it can be rolled up and stowed on the Tarahumara’s bottom compression cord. When you do need it, the pouch can be attached to the Tarahumara’s existing attachment points via ITW Nexus hardware and webbing clips.
