Hill People Gear (HPG) is very well known for their Kit Bags, a handgun concealment chest rig designed for backcountry travelers. Now they are about to take their proven design and apply it to fanny packs. Fanny packs are “in” again but in outdoor circles, they never went away. The ability to carry gear on your hips, in a location that is easily accessible while still moving, is just too handy to ignore.
The HPG Fanny Pack shown is a production sample. It makes use of the Snubby Original Kit Bag footprint and layout meaning it should easily handle handguns up to roughly Glock 19 size along with other essentials like a GPS, phone, snacks, etc. It features a rear clamshell gun pocket, a clamshell gear pocket, and finally a front stash pocket.
HPG would like to have this to market before Christmas 2019.
It would be pretty nifty if this had the ability to add the shoulder straps from the kit bag, so it could convert to either configuration.
An incognito version would also be nice…I don’t want to roll around downtown with tactical camo…just me
We will have the waist pack in Elk Brown, Teal / Black, and Manatee (Grey)
Thank you for chiming in Kevin!
With a waist pack you want the strap to be higher than where the Kit Bag connection would be. You also want the wings to be directly sewn in, so it wraps around your body and stabilizes the bag, which makes it more comfortable. That’s why we had to make it a dedicated waist pack instead of a conversion.
