“Precisely whats needed.  And nothing more.”  Sounds pretty good to a New Englander, right?

This morning we are welcoming back New England’s own, Hyperlite Mountain Gear!  We love these hard-working, dedicated Mainers and their simple, stripped-down approach to backpacks, shelters, and stuff sacks.  Hand-built in Biddeford, Maine using American-made Dyneema Fiber and Dyneema Composite Fabrics (aka Cuben Fiber), their gear is lightweight, practical, and bombproof!

Although they make killer packs for backpacking and pack rafting, we are obviously most interested in those made for sending!  Fortunately for everyone at Ice Fest, HMG will be bringing with them a fleet of Ice Packs for clinic participants to sample.  Be sure to pick one up early as they always go quickly.  You don’t want to miss the pack that Carryology.com calls, “an excellent technical bag that deserves to be on the shortlist for best bags in the category.
