Hyperlite Mountain Gear (HMG) is making some really cool packs out of Cuben Fiber that are great for packrafting. HMG’s roll down closure for the top of the pack is feature I am particularly found of. HMG packs wisely lack the common design of a draw sting and top lid. Instead they employ a simple, secure and proven dry-bag style closure that remains fast during falls, swims, drops, and other unintended mishaps. Additionally, the closure provides a watertight seal when engaging amphibious sports such as packrafting. To further improve the design for packrafing I had HMG sew two daisy chains on the inside of the pack. These two daisy chains allow the pack to be attached to the bow of my Alpacka Raft when flipped inside out so that the shoulder straps and hip belt are safely stowed away.
