I know we have various threads on specific HPG items, but given how modular they are, I thought it might be good to just have a general "HGP In Use" thread so that we can share the various ways we mix and match all those different components and use them in the field. I thought I'd kick it off with what I carried for a hike up in the hills behind the house this afternoon: Recon Belt Butt Pack Medium Pocket Bottle Pouch Tool Roll Maxpedition Single Sheath Of course, I left my phone in the truck, so tailgate pics will have to suffice... The Tool Roll fits perfectly inside the Butt Pack and velcros in place to the PALS panel. You can open it up and it folds out, making it easy to get what you need without needing to remove the Tool Roll from the pack. It works really well: The big learning for me using this setup over the last few hikes is that every other butt pack I've ever used (and I've tried quite a few) fails when it comes to the waist belt. With few exceptions, the belts are typically too narrow and too thin, which leads to them sagging and flopping around as you hike if you load them up too much, which often doesn't take much at all. At first, I thought that the Recon Belt seemed like total overkill for use with the Butt Pack, but that's only because of what I've been used to. After using it in this capacity a bit, it works incredibly well. The width of the Recon does an excellent job of distributing and supporting the weight, and making it really comfortable and solid while moving. I had almost 8 lbs. of stuff on the belt today, which isn't much at all of course, but it would have been enough to make a lot of other butt packs ride like crap. This setup could easily carry twice that much. The quick and easy modularity, and the fact that in a minute I could pull the Butt Pack off and attach the rest of this setup, just as it is, to one of my backpacks and be ready to go, is a great bonus and a testament to the thought and design that have gone into this line of gear.
