The Half Sack packs plenty of punch as well with all of the features of the fully customizable Deluxe version, but for a more stealthy trip.

  • It’s hard to pick color combinations, there are just too many options. :}

These hip packs easily store all I need and more for a day in Pisgah. With a collapsible bottle, the pack holds water and comfortably conforms to your midsection.

The large opening of the main compartment and brightly colored interior make it easy to access everything quickly.

The Bottom Line:

Nittany Mountain Works is the best fully customizable, simply designed hip pack on the market. You can not beat the value of this hand-sewn pack. This company and pack do not complicate anything. Ordering your custom design is fun and you can rest assured that you are original. In the words of Isaac Newton, “Truth is ever to be found in simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things.”[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
