Specifications like empty pack weight, number of pockets, and weight capacity are nearly irrelevant when it comes to whether or not a piece of equipment will perform for you in the backcountry. The real metric is efficiency -- greatest functional return on least amount of effort. You don't often hear about efficiency when it comes to outdoor gear design because it can't be conceived in a studio and it doesn't go into a retailers comparison chart. But efficiency is at the heart of what we do -- at Hill People Gear, we build tools to solve or avoid problems that we've run into over years of backcountry travel, both for work and adventure.
