    I prefer the HPG over the Eberlestock.

    If I were just going for a chest rig, I'd prefer the HPG as well. It's thinner and just a bit better set up. I don't always use my Eberlestock Multipack as a chest rig, It can also be attached to the front of the Halftrack (or any other pack with 5 row molle)

    I love my HPG chest pack. I carry my G20 along with a few other basics. I leave the side zipper open whenever I feel the possibility of a quicker draw, which works very handy when you come across an unexpected pack of hogs in the brush. It's a great little pack.

    I have a HPG Recon I use almost daily hiking. Generally I find something to nitpick on any gear I have and try an alternative to evaluate one against the other. Never found a reason to do so with the HPG kit bag. It's just that good OOTB.

    I have a HPG Tarahumara. It's the smallest pack I've ever used for every day carry, and for hiking I could definitely see where a little added space could help. My main concern is attachment to the shoulder straps and getting the bag off/on quickly. I've looked at the Kifaru Koala lite since it's significantly cheaper than any of the HPG chest rigs so it's a toss up between the two. I'd probably order the Kifaru first just to see if I like it before I drop the $100 on the HPG.

    Any info or pictures of yall's prefered attachment methods would be great.

    HPG's are good, especially for biking. Great for carrying a pistol, but it looks like you are wearing a small parachute on your chest.
