    HLT + Pilot

    I am considering adding some organization to my pilot. Does anyone know if the HLT large size will fit into the front pocket of a pilot? Any pictures you can share would be great!

    Yes, the HLT2 will fit into the front pockets of the Pilot. It's a little larger than a Side Effect (HLT2 9.1” (w) x 5.3” (h) x 2.6” (d) / 230 (w) x 135 (h) x 65 (d) mm vs Side Effect 8.7" (w) x 5.1" (h) x 2" (d) / 220 (w) x 130 (h) x 50 (d) mm), which means that with its wider (5.3" vs 5.1") it might protrude very slightly into the mesh wall of the central water bottle pocket of the Pilot. See the Will an HLT fit in one of the front pockets on a Pilot? thread. I don't have a picture to hand of the HLT2 in the Pilot, but that thread has a pictureof the largest accessory that I am comfortable carrying in the Pilot front pocket -- the Standard Spiff Kit which, at 9.4” (w) x 5.7” (h) x 2.6” (d) / 240 (w) x 145 (h) x 65 (d) mm, does impinge more into the mesh wall of the central water bottle pocket (5.7" vs. 5.3" for the HLT2, same depth as the Standard Spiff Kit of 2.6", which is thicker than the Side Effect's 2").

      Thanks! That helps a lot! Looks like I am getting a HLT as soon as they start making them again.
