Our Customers Say

“I just completed the Juan De Fuca Marine Trail with my three new Packstack Pro [Waterproof]. They made packing and unpacking seamless and efficient while keeping everything dry and easily identifiable. Thank you Hillsound for a brilliant product!”

Marco - North Vancouver

Hillsound Packstack Pro

“Very happy with my purchase. As per the preview, the pricing is scary high but in the long run... worth it! Why waste 2-300 in a pair of overpriced low quality boots? I won’t mention the Australian boots that are no longer made in Australia. The ones that are for show and not for go! Great for, solid well made boot that I will have for years. Great fall hunting boot as well.”

“From the forest of Pennsylvania to the shore of the Atlantic. Very workable, plenty of room, versatile and the provided footprint was a great addition.”
