Our friends at Wizard Works in London are giving away one of their newly released Hobgob Hip Packs for Collective Reward #166, and a randomly selected member of the Bikepacking Collective will receive one in their choice of color. Learn more and sign up for a chance to win here…

Released last month after more than two years of development, the London-made Wizard Works Hobgob is one of the nicest and most feature-rich hip packs we’ve seen to date. Miles spent a couple of months wearing one in advance of his recent review, and he noted its top-notch construction, remarkably user-friendly design, and ability to comfortably haul his full-sized camera while riding. The small team at Wizard Works kindly offered to give a Hobgob to one member of the Bikepacking Collective for our latest Collective Reward, and a randomly selected site supporter will take one home in their choice of Black, Chocolate, Olive, Orange, or Splatter. That’s a $240 value for our lucky winner.

The Wizard Works Hobgob features a main zippered compartment, a smaller front zippered pocket with a weather flap, and an optional Bottle Pocket that attaches to MOLLE webbing on the hip straps. It’s constructed from a burly 500-denier Cordura fabric and boasts super thick spacer mesh on the back and hip straps and a low-profile magnetic waist strap buckle from Fidlock’s Hook range. Inside, the pack is lined with high-vis nylon, the main compartment has two mesh organizer pockets and a key ring, and the smaller pocket has a length of elastic daisy chain to hold smaller items in place. In short, the Hobgob packs in all the features you could want for day riding and bikepacking and doesn’t tack on any gimmicky features you don’t need. Learn more about it in our review linked above or at Wizard.Works.
