Endurance Pack - Optimum for any distance riding and a favorite for racing. 

  • Dual Elastic front chest straps with 4 adjustment points per side. This pack fits men and women of all shapes and sizes wonderfully.
  • Front chest pockets, 2 of them, and front shoulder pockets, 2 of them, can hold a ton of essentials close at hand. The shoulder pockets fit regular size phones wonderfully, the chest pockets hold the plus sizes phones or you can put them in the back. You can also put bottles or soft flasks in the front chest pockets. 
  • 70oz bladder comes with a quick disconnect and lock out bite valve. This also allows for 70oz of water on your back, where as the 2 bottle packs limit at 48oz, unless you strap on a third bottle for 72oz total.
