The Tarahumara indeed looks awesome. Some pictures with it docked to a kit bag would be great. Do you have an idea on when they might ship yet? Please tell me the first run will include ranger green? I am looking forward to trying one out.

We are just getting in the door from the Pocatello gathering. We will get pictures up as soon as possible. It might take a day or two as we get on top of things again.

At this point we plan on doing both Ranger Green and Foliage for the first run. We are undecided about coyote at this point or even a third color. All of our polls seem to indicate that coyote should be the hands down favorite. However, based on actual sales ranger green and foliage are about equal and coyote is a distant 2nd. This surprises us as we hear from people wanting coyote, but then when we get items in those colors they just don't sell as well as the two other colors. What we are thinking about doing instead of coyote is a more civilian oriented color. FS has a couple of different color choices that they already stock that wouldn't be a problem to go with as they already have everything, or we might just go with ranger green and foliage to start and see where we are demand wise.

Pricing is official at 120. The first run will include coyote, foliage, and ranger green. Based on feedback we anticipate these going fast so it might behoove you to be signed up on our email list or following us on Facebook.

3 questions:

Do you have a pic of the interior of the pack?

From the pics posted does this dock n lock to the Kifaru packs?

When is the foilage coming in?

 

Thanks,

Spence

don't have interior pictures... there are no pockets or anything on the inside. it is edge bound and there is a single webbing hang loop at the top. that's it.

it's not exactly a dock and lock system, but you should be able to use it as a back pocket or compression panel on a wide variety of different backpacks. it will also dock to PALS.

foliage is waiting on a shipment of foliage zipper pulls right now. don't have an eta on that yet, but shouldn't be more than a couple of weeks.

also, for those who haven't noticed it, we are accepting pre-orders for ranger green Tarahumaras at this time.

Any idea if the rear slot pocket will accomodate my 3L HydraForm reservoir (16.5″ × 6.5″ × 3.5″)? The pack looks nice regardless, but being able to use my HydraForm with it would send it over the top.

3L HydraForm

I wouldn't put a hydration bladder in the slot pocket because I think it will round out the pack too much. I have one of the generation of Camelback Mules that work that way and I think it is a bad idea. My design intent was that you would put a bladder on the inside of the main compartment hanging from the hang loop there and then route the hose out the top of the zipper. Size-wise, the bladder you mention should fit inside just fine. I finally swore off of bladders a couple of years ago for good. The only one I had to test the Tarahumara with was a 1.5L. It worked plenty well. I did get a report from a customer that his 2L rounded out the pack too much. That surprised me based on the Tara's performance with the 1.5L. Now I wonder if he was putting it in the slot pocket instead of the main compartment....

The HydraForm’s design is pretty cool in that it has a sheet of molded plastic on the side facing your back. It stays flat on that side and doesn’t bulge. But not being compatible wouldn’t be a dealbreaker for me in any case.

Thanks for the reply!

It might work great then. I know it will go in the main compartment, and it should slip into the slot pocket as well. Slot pocket dimensions are a flat 17x9.

We should be accepting pre-orders on foliage Tarahumaras today or tomorrow, and then shipping out orders starting Friday or Monday.

Quick question...  What color is Tarahumara mounted on the OD Express?   I just got some of your canteen carriers in RG and they seem to blend well enough with OD.  The Tarahumara in the gallery seems to stand out from the OD pack.
