The Lowrider System is a fully adjustable harness system designed to ride lower on the back for better weight distribution while riding. By lowering the load, you also lower your center of gravity, which improves your balance. Lowering the weight also reduces upper body fatigue and back strain caused by the improper fit and poor positioning found on traditional hydration packs.
Strengths: Harness fit and adjustability. quality pack material. Wing pockets- easy access to food/gear Quality of work / attention to detail Option for 2 bladder system
This is an absolutely awesome product line. My adventure racing team used a prototype pack (larger main compartment) built on the same harness system as the other Wingnut Packs in this years Eco-Primal Quest Adventure Race. The pack wore well during 8 days of trekking and biking (among other things) and survived several 300-400ft repels as it bounced off of rock faces on the way down. I carried over 30lbs of gear on foot and on the bike and could always adjust the pack to a comfortable position. Over the past few years I have tried just about every race pack on the market and the one thing that always bothered me was the inability to easily access food from the pack without stopping or relying on someone else. The Wing pockets on these packs are large enough to hold 12hrs worth of food all within easy reach! Regardless if you are just riding or doing multi-sport events- I highly recommend these packs.
