Most of us here at BIKEPACKING.com regularly use a hip pack while bikepacking. They’re great for carrying cameras, extra water, and snacks. Plus, when designed right, they aren’t as bothersome as wearing a full backpack on multi-day trips. The Apidura Backcountry Hip Pack is the UK-based brand’s first hip pack, and it looks like another great option for riders looking for some extra carrying capacity.
The Apidura Backcountry Hip Pack consists of a main compartment with zipped and mesh pockets inside, as well as an external zipped side pocket and external mesh side pocket. The bag is made from ripstop nylon, is completely seam-taped for waterproofing, and has reflective details for added visibility. The bag has some clever features including a quick-link stash spot on the internal zipper pull, an elasticized velcro hip strap with a secondary security buckle, and a low-profile contoured EVA foam back panel. It has a 2.5L capacity and weighs 320 grams.
The Backcountry Hip Pack costs $104 USD (£76) and is available now from Apidura.com.
