    No, just the "elk brown" color. I hope we see more items in this color in the future - I really like it.

    I forgot all about the bear spray holster. Hows it going?

    Excellent. It's my favorite way to carry bear spray, hands down. Very accessible and fast.

    Looks like HPG added some "mobility" items to their webpage. Like it.

    No good HPG pics but ....


    I took my Tiger to his first Cub Scout adventure camp. I took the Tara. Once again I'm amazed at how comfortable it is wearing it all day. I used the Maxped Pygmy Falcon II in the same roll when I took my older boy to adventure camp and residence camp in the past. While capacity, etc. worked just fine with both, the Tara was definitely more comfortable over the long time frame.

    Yup. It's all about the harness. I find I can comfortably carry more than I should be able to in a pack that size, simply because the harness spreads to load out over a larger area effectively.

    Thanks! @shaneadams90 I’m going to have to look into it. Looks like from pictures it would fit well in a bottle pouch our pocket.

    That’s what I get for using my phone without glasses tagging the wrong person..

    It's actually the EXACT size of a bike bottle...it's made by specialized bikes....so anything that a bike bottle will work it this will fit fine!

    Ok so after some testing with the 58 pouch i like it but not for the reason i bought it. It shows magazines being put on the front and it will hold them but after a range session i needed two hands and some twisting to get them out so i wouldn't use it as a quick reload platform. Now it is being used to hold exam gloves and other similar sized items in the med kit section. My two cents.

    Tara on the trail from a couple weeks back.

    Still my favorite pack in that size range.
