    Hi again 🙂
    Have you ever tried the Laufbursche Huckpack ??
    Im using the HMG Porter 4400 but thinking of the Huckpack.
    Im just worried that there is no air between the pack and my back. So no ventilation !!
    Thx again for a great blog/website 🙂

    • Hi Lars, yes I have seen and tried on a Laufbursche Huckepack, possibly the first iteration of the pack. I have seen some more recently on the Coast 2 Coast Sweden walk. They are well made and very appealing packs, however, I have been happy with my HMG packs and have not seen the need to look elsewhere. If I was to move away from HMG packs it would be to a pack that had some sort of fabric to aid breathability between the pack and the back. Having said that, however, I have also found that with careful clothing section “back sweat” is less of an issue.
