The Backcountry Hip Pack is a lightweight, comfortable carry choice when you need more space but don’t want to wear a backpack. It combines the trail-ready features of the Backcountry Series with our expertise in on-body carry to create the perfect blend of carrying capacity and all-day comfort. Small details like a zipper capable of storing a spare chain link ensure you can carry everything you need for anything you might encounter in the backcountry.
Constructed from lightweight, breathable mesh and durable, waterproof nylon ripstop, the mountain bike waist pack features a main compartment with internal organisation pockets and two external pockets for easy access on the go. The waist strap features an elasticated velcro closure, enhanced with a secondary security buckle to dial in the on-bike anatomic fit. A high-contrast reflective design enhances visibility in all light conditions.
The Backcountry Hip Pack is made to handle the roughest rides. Designed with an ergonomic fit to sit comfortably and securely all day, no matter the conditions or the terrain.
The waistband is designed with enough stretch to ensure the pack can be worn in a variety of positions and over bulky layering, whilst always remaining comfortable and unobtrusive.
The Backcountry Hip Pack comes in a single size made to accommodate as many riders as possible and has been designed with all-day comfort in mind. To check the product fits we recommend measuring your waist, at the point where you’d like the pack to sit, whilst wearing your regular riding gear. The pack’s waist strap has some stretch and so if you are near to, or slightly over, the upper limit, there is enough give for the pack to still fit comfortably.
Minimum circumference: 70cm / 28"
Maximum circumference: 115cm / 28"
The Backcountry Hip Pack is made from nylon ripstop; a rugged fabric made to our own exacting specifications for durability and waterproofing. Designed for the demands of off-road riding, this ensures light weight, low stretch, and high abrasion and tear resistance. Notably, the cycling hip pack is seam taped, creating a watertight seal that ensures the hip pack remains completely waterproof.
The velcro strap has an elastic stretch casing and features a Hypalon panel which provides additional support for the security buckle. The fastening system uses Woojin buckles for their reliability and the side straps feature lightweight mesh and padding for comfort. Low profile, quick drying padding on the rear of the bag further improves comfort without adding bulk.
Wash the Hip Pack by hand, using a mild diluted soap if necessary. Afterwards, let it air dry.
Do not machine wash, machine dry, or iron.
We’re an independent, family-run business of cyclists, makers and problem solvers, brought together by a shared mission to find better ways to explore the world by bike.
Apidura was born from necessity; pioneering ultralight, rackless packing systems to help us take our love of cycling further and allow riders to unlock their instinct for adventure. As devoted adventure cyclists, we design with our fellow riders in mind, creating products that address genuine needs and bring new value to the bikepacking scene. We create the best packs we can, using technical materials and precision crafting techniques – and when we find a way to improve them we do so straight away and without fanfare. We don’t do ‘seasons’, limited editions or discount our gear – we simply create the best possible technical bikepacking gear that’s built to last.
