Escape Hip Pack gives you extra space to carry kit on long rides or hikes and lets you keep valuables on hand when you stop. It’s a classic hip pack that’s designed, cut, and stitched in our UK factory from hard-wearing, waterproof fabric. Choose it over a pack or handlebar bag when travelling light or use it to house essentials on longer trips.
“For Escape Hip Pack we asked our UK factory seamsters to take the fantastic X-Pac® X11 fabric from our bikepacking range and turn it into a versatile pack that gives extra storage on two feet or two wheels. A hip pack is a great way to expand your carrying capacity. Or, use one instead of a full backpack when you’re moving fast and light.
The X-Pac® fabric is a sustainable choice: it’s climate neutral and made in factories that only use green energy. But this doesn’t come at the expense of performance. It’s weatherproof and built to last and like all our UK Made kit is covered by our 25-year Alpine Bond. We’ve added pockets and compartments to help you organise your valuables and Velcro straps to convert it to a handlebar bag."
