Since then, tens of thousands of riders have taken to the streets on the State 4130, drawn to it by its affordability, durability, and classic/timeless styling.

HMPL is pleased to announce some fresh changes to its ever-expanding lineup of bags and accessories. New for 2022 comes the release of new colors and new fabrics available across their entire line of bags, as well as a newly developed woven Molle attachment system.
For the coming season, all HMPL bags will now be available in three new colors ( Coyote, Blue, Black) in EcoPak EPX200 fabric from Challenge Sailcloth. EcoPak is a new material that is not only Durable, Lightweight, and Waterproof but made from 100% recycled polyester. In an ongoing commitment to sustainability, this new recycled fabric from HMPL is produced using no solvents, wastewater or fluorocarbons!
Alongside the new fabrics, all HMPL bags will now come standard with their new Tech-Sys webbing attachment system. This newly developed webbing replaces the old stitched webbing Molle mounting system. Tech-Sys is a fully woven webbing with the Molle loops built-in. This gives a sleek and seamless appearance to the mounting points of the bags, and adds strength to the attachment.
All HMPL bags will be available in the new EcoPak fabric, as well as the classic 1000d Cordura option.
