The Whirlpool Hip Pack - is the pack we wanted to be on the market but couldn’t find. It is an overstuffable design without any zippers to blow out, sturdy seams and lot of carrying options. A removable bladder / sleeve and bottle holsters lend to about 100oz of water carrying capacity (think the whole enchilada, palisade plunge, or pretty much any big enduro race). It was designed with stability, comfort, and simplicity front of mind. The name was picked because the pack is a water carrying machine and is a roll top closure, hence, The Whirlpool. Its wings are designed with as much area as we could get to help distribute the heavy water load. They are sewn in at two points per wing to give them the flexibility to move to the body of the rider. We also tilted the wings up some so the pack sits lower on the back. This helps when in a riding position, keeping the waist belt low. The daisy chain webbing on the back is the perfect spot to strap a coat, carabiner you coffee mug, or clip some sunscreen. You can also take you sunglasses and put the arms through the webbing if you need a place to let them air out. 


Primary color is the main section of the pack. Secondary is the bottom (where the straps are) and the wings under the drop pockets. Webbing is the webbing...
