Alternative uses for HMG products

The above photo is me at the highest elevation I've ever visited - Tibetan Everest Base camp, 5150m or roughly 16,900 feet. It was the last and only time I've been in the Himalayas, almost 20 years ago. The release of the Halka packs got me thinking: while I certainly don't NEED another pack, is there an alternative use for one of these more niche products that could justify the purchase?

I might be reaching, but could the exterior tubes designed for air canisters on the 70L version be used for a yoga mat and a tripod, making it perfect for getting outdoor footage for wellness influencers 🤷‍♂️?

Are there any other Hyperlite products that you use outside of their intended purposes? I've heard of camera pods doubling as snack satchels and nalgene coozies protecting camera lenses. But how about the crampon bag, ice screw case or anything else?

Would love to hear thoughts, ideas and inspiration from the community.
