The Highlander pack will come with three compression straps for compact storage as a standalone pack when integrated with the HPG Shoulder Harness which is sold separately. The straps can be affixed to any of the integrated side tabs to tighten as you see fit. These same tabs can connect into the Compression Kit they will soon be releasing that will in turn allow you to attached the pack to any external frame.
As a compression panel, you can fit additional gear in-between the Highlander Pack and frame providing for any number of combinations. In tandem with the compression kit you can see easy integration with any number of load bearing systems. The pack also has dual internal daisy chain for properly organizing your stowage and a slot pocket in the rear panel which can hold a rifle. An additional cord is provided at the bottom of the pack with cord lock for more compression holding more gear/tools. The Highlander Pack will be available in Coyote, Foliage, and Ranger Green with a late April release date. See additional photos and specs at HillPeopleGear.com
