Time to get rid of a couple redundant packs in my closet.
First up is a customized HMG Porter 3400.
I had two modifications made on this pack.
-The fabric used is the heavier 150 d hybrid Cuban rather then the 50 d used on most HMG packs. This is the fabric now used on the Porter 4400.
-Plastic frame sheet. This is a new feature on the HMG Porter 4400 only, I had it put in mine. It boast carrying capacity with heavy duty loads.
The pack has only been outside once or twice on "try out" walks. Nothing changed since the factory.
Torso length is Long (21 inches)
Its a great pack I just don't need two heavy hauler packs and my Exped fits me just a bit better.
Next I'm selling a Zimmerbuilt pack with a custom hipbelt that Chris made to my specifications. Great pack I just don't need it now.
Here are the pictures Chris took of it, his are much better then the ones I took.
The pack was 28 oz when Chris weighed it. I added a foam back pad so its probably right around 30 oz now. The material is Xpac. The orange is the lighter VX07 while everything else is VX21.
There is a Gossamer Gear style removable frame, I had Chris modify the hipbelt design so the belt would be sewn on right next to the frame. I tested it with 30-35 pounds and its pretty comfortable at that weight. The really isn't room to put more then that in there. Main pack volume is around 2200 cubic inches for the main compartment.
I carried it on 5 short trips totaling about 100 miles. It has some scuffs but functionally its sound, no rips, worn spots or busted seams anywhere.
The torso length is 21 inches.
Asking $150 shipped
Black pack traded, other two still available.
