Hill People Gear dropped a sneaky hint about their upcoming pack, the Junction, a few weeks ago and we caught it. We now have even more details and images of the new pack.
Scot Hill said this of the junction, “It is a minimalist daypack just a bit larger than the Tara. Top load, no compression straps but lacing, two wand pockets, and Tara style suspension.”
The back panel has a zippered compartment that is designed to accept a 13″ laptop though that may vary in the production version. The top flap also has a small zippered compartment for organizing small, quick-access items. It also retains all the loops necessary to be used as a compression pocket/panel on HPG’s larger packs.
If you have been looking for something a bit bigger than the Tarahumara and with a bit more organization, this could be it. The Junction is not available for sale yet. Stay tuned for details.
