Fiel report by David H.
Are HMG Packs 100% waterproofe? HMG CFO, Dan St. Pierre, tries packrafting for the first time.
"Directly after the Summer Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City, Mike (HMG CEO) and I headed up to Wyoming to paddle the Grey's River with a couple of HMG Ambassadors. Despite some Class 3 swimming, it was a great trip and a lot of fun and I highly recommend giving this burgeoning sport a try!"
“Due to some confusion in the marketplace regarding the waterproofness of Cuben fiber packs, and after packrafting for the first time a month ago and flipping my boat too many times, I’d like to comment on the waterproof characteristics of HMG Packs.While Cuben fiber is 100% waterproof, we never say HMG Packs are 100% waterproof – although they are very highly waterproof. Approximately 90% of seams are sealed, but there are two seams with technically different structures that cannot be sealed. After a hard rain or soaking a pack while packrafting, a user might experience a few tablespoons of water inside the pack. I find that some users are not accustomed to seeing this because traditional packs will absorb water and not be noticeable inside the pack. Since Cuben fiber does not absorb water, any small amount that does get inside the pack will noticeably remain at the bottom until the pack is emptied or the water drains. But personally, I don’t mind at all because the pack is not absorbing water, it is not getting heavier from absorption, it does not stay wet and transfer moisture to my other gear over an extended period of time, and even after being submerged from the various times I flipped my boat, the pack dries very quickly.From my direct experience, the solution for keeping crucial gear (sleeping bag, clothes and food) 100% dry in a Cuben fiber backpack is to use Cuben fiber Stuff Sacks. Cuben Stuff Sacks are virtually weightless, and coupled with an HMG Pack, will provide that watertight system everyone seeks. They kept all my gear dry while my overturned boat repeatedly floated downstream ahead of me!”
