Spurcycle updates classic hip pack design

Published January 8, 2020

BEND, Ore. (BRAIN) — Spurcycle has launched a new hip pack design, with first production of 200 units released in December.

Nick Slone, Spurcycle's co-founder and COO, said he designed the pack for personal use. "Usually the development projects we work on consider a broad range of users and attempt to balance various criteria related to successful commercialization. With this I just wanted to build a better bag for myself. It was a pet project, something I wanted to do because I could. Since moving to Bend, I've been spending lots of time on the mountain bike and will be back on my skate skis soon. This bag is perfect —just what I wanted ... and hopefully something others will like as much as I do."

Sloan designed the hip pack with modern materials, including Dyneema and X-Pac fabrics, helping keep the weight to 250 grams. It is made in the U.S., has a 4 liter capacity. A heavy-duty zipper closure provides one-handed access and the inner perimeter has four pockets for easy access to nutrition or tools. An internal zipper pocket keeps phone and other valuables secure and a lanyard keeps keys secure. An external shock cord provides a place to stash a vest, arm warmers, or water bottle.

Spurcycle's Hip Pack will retail for $135.
