GG coming out with ... on 03/28/2007 14:13:31 MDT Print View

The latest email to Gossamer Gear customers says that they will be coming out with removeable waist belt pockets for all their packs, and more pack pocket options later.

I don't think a specific time table was given but I had the sense that it won't be too long.

I think this is a great idea --- I like my new GG pack, but miss the waist pockets from my ULA pack. A removeable pocket (if not too heavy) allows you to alternate between using a part of precious waist-belt real estate either for general gear storage, or to add on-hip water haulage capacity depending on need.

I like the ones provided by Zpacks. I also like the ones made by Six Moon Designs -- and for those interested, it may be worthwhile to ask Ron Moak if he will sell those separately. To me, silnylon pockets provide all the functional advantages -- including high rain resistance -- with almost no added weight! For those who need a bit more to protect their cameras or GPS, it's a simple thing to line a silnylon pocket with a thin layer of bubble wrap.
